Built By Women
This month we have dedicated Life By Design magazine to women. Every article here is focused on the strength that comes with being a woman. Although this month is explicitly devoted to women, I feel that Life By Design Magazine is indeed a testament to the impact women make in the world every day. Life By Design would not be here without women; our contributing writers are primarily women. We have content monthly that shows how women are making it in business and how women are actively helping the entrepreneur community.
The impact women have on Life By Design is even more profound than the amazing women we have writing. This Magazine was founded and executed by women. Our Editor and chief Casey Nicole Fox has made this magazine what it is today. Her vision to build a platform that gave entrepreneurs the information and inspiration we need daily as entrepreneurs have impacted over twenty thousand lives.
Our graphic designer has put together visuals that make this magazine aesthetically pleasing. Jennifer Meim has worked day and night to build this magazine and put it together in a way that is easy to read. No matter how we look at it, Life By Design is only where it is today because of powerful women.
For March I would like to share the three qualities I admire most about these women and how they have built the Life By Design community to help entrepreneurs just like you daily!
1. They aren’t afraid of work.
When Casey and I were at Thrive listening to Kevin Herrington speak on being the content creator, I leaned over and said to Casey “we should start a magazine.” The average person would have said that is cool and left it at that but Casey Nicole Fox took it upon herself to build this magazine. In three months we had our first draft of our first magazine. Casey was not afraid of the work. She hunkered down and put together an entire magazine in just three months.
2. They invest in their vision.
Casey and Jen spend hours on building the magazine, setting events, and creating a community. They are willing to invest their time, energy, and money in Life by Design so they can see their vision come true. They both know the power of investing in their view and are willing to put it all on the line to see a change in the world.
3. They take action.
From day one, Casey had to take action to build the magazine and Jen had to make an effort to design. They have contacted people to find writers, looked for advertisers, and started making the community. Every day they take action to see their vision come to life. Taking action is the key; without this one ingredient, we wouldn’t have the success we have today.
Thank you so much for our amazing women! You work hard, you invest in your vision, and you take action. You are a powerful woman, and you make a difference in the world!
