What is this blog?

Welcome to my first blog. Thanks for starting this journey with me. I’m not sure how I got to writing this blog. At some point, I realized I wanted to combine my interest in business and entrepreneurship with my passion for inspiring others. So here I am, trying my darndest to understand WordPress.

My morning regimen starts by slowly getting out of bed, making tea, and getting on my computer to read business news. I find myself stopping to read business stories that include women who are doing fun, exciting projects. As a business women and entrepreneur, those stories allow me to set my intent for the day and that intent is to kick some serious you-know-what in the business space. The reason behind showcasing women based in L.A., right in our backyard, is to make these women more relatable and their achievements seem more attainable. They put their heels on one foot at a time just like you and me. If they can do it, so can you. I want women to ask, “Why can’t I do that, too?”.

When I was searching for similar websites, I Googled “Women in Los Angeles”, and here’s what I found:

One of the first posts was “Top 10 Bars with the Hottest Women”. While I’m not discounting the “need” to find where pretty ladies hangout in L.A., I think we, women, are more complex than that.

Where can we find women who are doing kick-ass things in this city? The ones that lead mega-businesses, while inspiring and motivating us to do even more? Or the ones who went rogue and are defining a path their way and on their terms? They’re out there. This blog is about showcasing the incredible women that give our city its big personality, have the power to dictate the future of the LA landscape, and look beautiful doing it.

Now That’s Pretty Powerful.

If you know someone who should be featured here or have a great L.A. story, I’d love to hear from you. Please send information to thatsprettypowerful@gmail.com.
