There is some exciting news in this week’s blog post! The KNOW Calgary Book has just been released and there are over 100 females that you need to “know”! I’m so honoured to be featured in this publication amongst these amazing industry leaders. Get to know these Boss Babes are as you check out the first Canadian edition of the book that celebrates female success!
So what is the KNOW Book? Well creator, Sarah Benken, launched this idea in 2017. She knew that there were so many business owners and industry leaders who were just waiting to be seen! The book showcases over 100 different women from all different fields. From lawyers, to photographers, to florists, to spiritual healers, to fashion bloggers (me!) they are all here! The mantra is “lift and rise”, meaning that we support one another. I think this is such an inspiring aspect in today’s world, especially among women.
The only way to be featured in the Book is through nomination. Women are then vetted through peer-review to ensure that KNOW is featuring the best and the brightest stars!
Since this is the very first Canadian edition of Know, I had no idea what to expect when my friend Brittany first told me about the publication. I was intrigued about this movement of celebrating local female entrepreneurs and absolutely honored to be considered. There are a million people in Calgary, and I must admit that it feels pretty special to be included amongst these fabulous women.
Being part of the Know Tribe means building a community between women. Blogging is a pretty independent field so it’s a great opportunity for me to get out there and network with some other people. Being part of this community allows you to attend the quarterly meet-ups where everyone can mix and mingle. We share stories and advice and learn more about each other’s passions. I see some really cool collaborations on the horizon between myself and some of these ladies, so stay tuned!
Want to meet these amazing women? You can browse the entire issue online! If you’re looking for a hard copy, there are multiple pick-up locations in Calgary, or you can order the book from the website and just cover the cost of shipping. Find my bio, under “Media” on page 98!
Want to be part of next year’s tribe? The Book will be released annually and there are even more Canadian cities coming up! Know someone who would be perfect? You can nominate them!
A little faux never hurt anyone! I’m rocking a faux-fur white coat, faux leather pants and faux suede over-the-knee boots! This mixture of textures makes this outfit really fun and it also gives it a more classy feel. This coat is a new addition and I can’t wait to wear it more this winter. Don’t listen to those old rules, you can totally wear white after Labour Day! These new sunglasses are the most popular style from Diff Eyewear at the moment. The Cosmo is oversized and super chic plus they come in a variety of frame and lens colours.
