My Business Story

graduation

Every business has a backstory and mine started in graduate school in North Carolina. 

In August 2014, I started my doctoral program. I was excited about going back to school and also unsure about my ability to be successful. By excited, I mean I was eager to go back to graduate school because, at the time, I had decided that I wanted to be a full-time faculty member and at most colleges and universitites you have to have a PhD to do so. I was also anxious about how I would do in a PhD program because my master's degree had taken a toll on my confidence. 

Despite my self-doubts, I continued with the program and began studying first-year students and courses that help them succeed in college. The data confirmed that one of the primacy influencers of success in college and beyond was a student’s positive perception of their abilities (also know as positive or high self-efficacy). As I dove further into the research and started working directly with students, I quickly learned how to improve my self-perception of my abilities and ended up earning my PhD in 3 years - faster than I ever thought was possible! Once I graduated, I knew I had to share this information with any woman in pursuit of big goals and worthy dreams. After relocating to Portland, OR in early 2018, I started my business.

Point: I solved the dilemmas of self-doubt and underachievement for myself and I want to share my solutions with you!
