Founder - Aspiring Co. LLC

Aspiring Co. is a media company here to remind you to chase your dreams relentlessly and to inspire you when you feel like giving up. We are telling the stories of women who are fighting everyday to pursue a life of meaning.

What inspired you to start your business?

I started Aspiring Co. because I was curious about what creative careers and entrepreneurship looks like for real women. We in our “It Girl” interview series we profile women who are happy in their careers. We talk through topics on our podcast, Yes Girl Yes, an Aspiring Co. podcast to share lived experiences with our audience. We also offer coaching for other women content creators to walk them through the process from ideation to implementation. Every woman has a story that deserves to be told!

What is something you would say to someone who is struggling in their first few years of business? Is there something you struggled with and learned from in those first few years?

I would say stick with it. Don't quit and pride yourself on your adaptability and resilience.

What hobbies, causes, or activities are you passionate about aside from your work?

Planned Parenthood, women's rights, black lives matter are all causes I care about a lot.
