What Makes You Badass?
We have all heard the quote by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich that warns: “Well behaved women seldom make history.” It’s often posted on Pinterest boards and slapped onto cards with women toasting cocktails or kicking up their heels in unison. But for us, this sentiment is more than encouragement to go on a girls’ trip and go wild; it’s a celebration of women who choose to be defined by their courage, bravery and decisions to go after the life they want to live instead of being confined by what the current society defines as acceptable or appropriate. Whether labeled ambitious, ballsy, bold, fearless, or powerful, these are women who do much more than light up a room with their magnetic energy: they follow their intuition which allows them to lead by glorious example. This, of course, leaves the close-minded intimidated while inspiring those who have long hungered for tangible proof that they, too, will serve themselves well by igniting their passions and relishing in their independence.
You are clearly one of these women.
It is for this reason that we would love to have you share your experience, wisdom and unique point-of-view with our readers who are looking to think, laugh and learn. Badass + Living is a platform for women who want to inspire and be inspired while offering support, encouragement and the best parts of themselves to those in our network. If you have a brand, book, vision, talent or just an amazing story to tell, we’d love to hear from you.
