Misfit. Rebel. Punk. Ever since I was a little girl I knew there wasn’t one path for me to follow. I thank my dad for my weird sense of humour, my mother for my artistic eye and my bonus mom (stepmom) for my business sense. I wasn’t an easy teenager but somehow I turned that goth #riotgrrrl into an unapologetic @riotmthrrr 🖤⚡️ . . . . . . . #thesocialrenegade #therenegadeacademy #smashthepatriatchy #intersectionalfeminist #stationarylove #genderequality #humanrights #shepersisted #activist #revolution #feministaf #nastywoman #fabfeminist #punkstyle #punkfashion #grungefashion #punkaf #punksnotdead #alternativestyle #dreamchasers #ladiesgoneglobal #genderfluid #girlslikeus #feministart #feministmedia #genderneutral #smallshoplove

About a year ago, @jimena_does and I launched a Kickstarter campaign to print our first book, Bessie Queen of the Sky. Our vision was to create NEW fairy tales - full of brave, confident, and determined women. To inspire our girls to dream big and do more. To celebrate the lives of women who helped change the story - in hopes that it would change theirs! <3 • The message we are sharing with our girls has turned into a message we are teaching ourselves - We are the makers of our story. We are the ones who change the world. And they are the ones who need to be taught that we can. • And here we are - we just launched our second Kickstarter campaign to share with the world FIVE new Queens - a dancer, a painter, a teacher, a scientist, and a climber. We are beyond excited to share these new Queens with you that were written by a diverse group of empowering women! Head over to Kickstarter to meet gour new Queens! @queengirlsbooks #queeengirls #queengirlsbooks #kidlit #thefutureisfemale #booksforgirls #likeagirl  #indiepublisher #shepersisted #betweenthelines #iamagirl #inspiringgirls #reading #bookspower #contentmatters #picturebooks #picturebook #consciousparenting #inspiringquotes #empoweringquotes #bethechange #beinspired #genderequality #feministart #bravewomen #motherhoodrising #womensupportingwomen #kickstarter

True story. Can’t work on what you won’t acknowledge and Want to change. It comes down to a decision. And everyday it’s a choice to carry out that decision. I’ve made a lot of mistakes but the willingness to Try and do better everyday is what growth is about.

Lucy Stone was a revolutionary who achieved several firsts for women. // She was the first woman to keep her maiden name after she was married. // She was the first Massachusetts woman — and one of the first women in the nation — to earn a college degree. // Even in death, Lucy Stone was a “first.” By her own instructions, she had six men and six women as pallbearers. She was also the first person in Massachusetts to be cremated. // She was a key organizer of national women’s rights conventions, served as president of the American Equal Rights Association. // She co-founded and helped lead the American Woman Suffrage Association, and founded and edited the Woman’s Journal, the most influential women’s newspaper of its kind, energizing the women’s rights movement through the stories they published. // She was a brilliant and passionate speaker, unperturbed by the mobs of angry men who would attend her lectures and try to drown her out. One story tells of a night someone stuck a hose through the stage window and doused her with icy water. Stone was resolute, she just pulled her shawl tighter and kept on talking. // In 1891, her piece in the Woman’s Journal read: “The legal right for woman to record her opinion wherever opinions count is the tool for whose ownership we ask.” // Lucy Stone did not live to see women achieve the right to vote, but we can thank her for being one of the voices who fought so hard to ensure that we now get to use our voices. Honor Lucy and all the brave women who fought beside her by voting in the November mid-terms. // #firsts #getoutandvote #whenweallvote #votesaveamerica #midterms #womensrights #shepersisted
How did I become a CEO at age 5? Easy. No nap time. When my Beanie Babies asked for a day off - I said sure. Your staff has to be happy. We lived off Toaster Strudels for the first few years but now we’re ordering Pizza Hut every day. Extra breadsticks. Wouldn’t trade those start up years for anything because it made me the 6 year old I am today. #tbt #truegrit #ShePersisted #ceo #ceolife #boss #pizzahut #businesswoman #forbes #throwbackthursday #SheEO #nyc #entrepreneur

“And it seemed to me that the world I saw before me was merely the outward manifestation of a vastly powerful, deeply fundamental reality that existed just out of sight. I might not discern this veiled reality directly, but I could perceive its effects.” The Endless Knot (The Song of Albion Book 3), Stephen Lawhead . . Perception. Reality. Truth. Fiction. Fine lines separate them. Writers bridge those lines in keenly woven stories. Truth told in fictional stories is no less powerful than a baldly stated fact. But we readers need both the finely crafted tale and the well-written non-fiction to inform our thoughts and to feed our curiosity. . . This photo shows a Texas Hill Country farm/ranch homestead.

Today’s #womenhistorywednesday is Marian Wright Edelman A graduate of Spelman College and Yale Law School (1963), Edelman became the first African American woman to pass the bar exam in Mississippi. In private practice, she took on civil rights cases and fought for funding of one of the largest Head Start programs in the country. She served as director of the Legal Defense and Educational Fund and then moved to Washington, D.C., to start the Washington Research Project of the Southern Center for Public Policy, a public interest law firm. In 1973 Wright Edelman founded and became president of the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) in Washington, D.C. The CDF became a highly effective organization in advocating children’s rights.

Repeat after me:
“So, if anyone ever tells you no, if anyone says your voice isn’t important or your dreams are too big, remember these women.” . Ava picked out this book tonight and I almost didn’t make it through the final page. Sister, if you’re feeling worn down, if the doors keep closing, if your voice isn’t being heard, keep going. Keep knocking. Keep speaking. They persisted and so should you. 👭 . 📖 She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton & Alexandra Boiger (one of my faves) ♥️

#WhiteWednesdays : Portrait of a pathetic male bully. This “Mullah”, a pathetic little male, tries to bully a courageous woman from Iran 🇮🇷 who chose to not wear hijab.

We might be working on our businesses round' the clock but we still make our jobs as moms to these little humans a priority! We enlisted the QUEEN BEE of lunch making, Catherine McCord who founded @weelicious and @onepotatobox to demystify what the f*&k these kids will eat at school that's also good for them. The lunchmaking workshop was a hit to say the least, and we left with this pearl of wisdom, "make everything bite size for small hands" and "get your kids involved and they'll eat what they make". Take that picky eaters! 😜 What's your favorite lunchtime snack for the babes?? . . . For mamas fasting today for Yom Kippur, wishing you an easy one... and please feel free to scroll past this food focused post until tomorrow. ;)
Throughout American history, men have made their best efforts to keep women from practicing in the field of law. Although women have faced similar dilemmas in their efforts to enter other professions, their struggle to break through the barriers of the legal profession has been one of the most challenging pursuits.

⏳ My brother told me in his “I know more than you do” side glance with a smirk voice that lifting weights is THE best way to lose weight. This was years ago and I can’t even give you a good timeline. Was it after I gave birth to my first child? No clue. He was on a bulk phase if I remember correctly and although I do remember he had muscles, he also liked to eat which is the best thing when you weight lift. So at the time I didn’t believe him. . ⏳ Also looking back I remember after turning 25 the pounds actually stayed on more because I was less active. I couldn’t for the life of me understand what magic pill people were taking that seemed to make them insta-skinny. It seemed from an outside view that they could do one cardio session and leave glowing with more booty pop and Gasp! Did they lose another inch?! Wth!! I pondered more about how they got skinny or fit and could still eat a burger, pho, and birthday cake. I cried over my tight pants that luckily I didn’t have to wear because I stayed home. All the while, I was probably stuffing my face with my morning muffin and the grande caramel macchiato from Starbucks that I almost got regularly. I lamented about going up in size but rarely did anything about it. I might have had a couple bursts of motivation to go to the gym. But I lacked the confidence and friends to go there. I was too self conscious that I stopped taking care of myself both physically and emotionally. . ⏳ I truly believe that the choices we make is the path we are meant to take. So it took me a while longer to find people to workout with, a gym and exercise format that I enjoyed, and to build confidence to be able to go to the gym alone. I needed to go through those awkward moments of feeling self conscious and working through my nerves to go to the gym even on nights that friends couldn’t go with me. It helped me build strength for myself and every time I left the gym knowing that it was getting a little more easier to be on my own. I realized no magic pills or drinks or wraps would ever long term make a difference if I wasn’t willing to put in the work both with what I ate and how I conditioned my body. Continued in comments...
When you’re grateful....your fear will learn to dance with you ✨
My experience as a trauma therapist has afforded me the heartbreaking opportunity to bear witness to the aftermath of sexual assault (on far too many occasions). In nearly every single instance, the victim has almost nothing to gain from telling their story. To open themselves up to public scrutiny is always excruciating, and to do this inside an atmosphere of political pressure guarantees that they will be demonized by people with an incredible amount of power. . Christine Blasey Ford knows that she will be harmed in this process. She saw what happened to Anita Hill. She has already been harassed, received death threats, and been forced to leave her home. If I were her therapist or her attorney, I too would have advised her to ask for a non-partisan investigation into her claim before deciding whether or not to testify in the highly antagonist environment she is likely to encounter from this congress. . Without honoring her request, Chuck Grassley and other Republican members of the judiciary committee (all men, btw) are asking her to testify on Brett Kavanaugh’s home court. Literally. He’s a federal judge. The senators questioning her are his colleagues and friends. They have a very vested interest in his success. Kavanaugh has decades of experience in this system; Ford has none. . It’s absurd to ask this woman to testify to a political audience without completing her request for a non-partisan investigation into her claim. The credibility of an official investigation would give her a very necessary leg to stand on in an otherwise heavily disadvantaged position. Anything you hear to the contrary is motivated by partisan power, and the pressure of midterm elections. . Please consider calling your senators and asking them to take this seriously. Here’s the number: 202-224-3121. The stakes are too high. 🙏🏻.

Yes, women can! I persisted and @traderjoespdx responded. After yesterday’s incident and last nights nightmare, Trader joes looked into the situation and took, what i see as, immediate action. After TJ’s apologized profusely ,The security guard was fired, not only from Trader Joes, but from the security company as well. Bravo @traderjoespdx . Thank you for taking violence against women seriously. Cause we all know, that if that woman was a man, this would not have occurred. #Yeswomencan #Standupagainstthepatriarchy #Shepersisted #Bigupthefemale #Endmaleviolenceagainstwomen #Yourtimeisup #Stopintimidatingwomen

Someone once asked me: “What do you wish people would say when you’re not in the room?” To which I replied: “…That bitch is authentic as fuck.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope that not for one second, you question who I am. You might not totally get me, but you understand what I’m about and what I’m trying to accomplish. I want people to know I’m ferociously caring, assertive and not even a little bit afraid to be myself. I want people to know that I won’t stop until I make my dreams reality. I want people to recognize that I’m passionate and that YOUR INNER BABE is not just my work. It’s in my soul.

It’s been a rough few days over here on the personal + biz side. I have much to say but it will come later. For now, I’m grateful for my determination. In the past I’d just dig myself under some blankets, watch Netflix and figure I’d just deal with the problem later. Or I’d figure that I wouldn’t deal with it at all and that I just wasn’t cut out to make it. This time around, I couldn’t wait until I got back to my desk, fired up my computer and got back to working. Because I believe I can do it. And I will. . . . #personalbrandingphotography #personalbrandingphotographer #womenentrepreneurs #entrepeneur #entrepreneurlife #smallbizowner #smallbizphotography #lasmallbusiness #losangelessmallbusiness #losangelessmallbusinessowners #socalsmallbusiness #sandiegosmallbusiness #womenempoweringwomen #womensupportingwomen #womensportraits #socalportraitphotographer #socalportraitphotographer #personalbranding #lapersonalbranding #lapersonalbrandingphotographer #losangelespersonalbrandingphotographer #socalpersonalbranding #sandiegopersonalbrandingphotographer #girlpower #wecandoit #shepersisted

January 2018: I decided I didn’t want to stay stuck. I knew that I didn’t want to live a life that might lead to health problems, and possibly a shorter life span. I knew I never wanted to be like my grandma who was wheel chair bound and severely obese. I knew I wanted a life that was different from where I was. I decided that I was going to invest in myself wholeheartedly and be my best self both physically and mentally. September 2018: I’ve stuck with that decision, which is a new thing for me. I’ve lost 30 inches and about 15 pounds 😱, and I’ve gained confidence and a new love for myself. It’s been hard, I’ve faced setbacks, but I haven’t quit. I’m ending this year as strong as I started it. I’m pushing myself to try hard things (my nemesis cardio) and face fears that have been holding me back for a long time. There is still time to reach those goals you set last year, 105 to be exact! Let’s crush them together 🙌🏻!! My next group starts October 1! Let’s do this together 💜
