Leanne Shear is hands down one of the most influential people you’ll ever meet. If it means meeting her for 5 minutes and having a great conversation or getting your a** kicked by her during a training session, she will somehow change your life. She’s one of those ladies that will force you to open up without forcing you to, relate to you and inspire you. It makes sense that she is the co-founder of Uplift Studios a women’s only #FemaleSociety of strong women. The studios offer workout classes that leave your legs like jello and your abs so sore you’ll avoid laughing for days. On top of classes, Uplift offers inspiring panels (always with wine), weekend retreats and a sense of community that’s hard to find in NYC. Earlier in 2016, Uplift launched its second chapter in LA in the chic West Hollywood neighborhood. Read on to discover more about Leanne’s journey from a hobby to a 5 year old business that continues to inspire. #Ladyboss

I met the ever smiling Jessica Hendricks back in 2012 at a Tory Burch event for a book signing of Pioneers of the Possible by Angella Nazarian. We quickly connected over our admiration for strong powerful women and she casually mentioned that she had this little jewelry line that she had just launched called The Brave Collection. Three years later Jessica has become an inspiration for so many. She has created tremendous awareness for sexual trafficking of women in Cambodia (and beyond), plus she has empowered women through her elegantly crafted products. Her bracelet has been to the White House and to Vogue and touching the lives of many. Jessica is a force to be reckoned with and one of the bravest ladies I know.
