A powerful community of women who are ready to get out of their comfort zones, tackle their bucket lists, and achieve what they never thought possible.
Did you know that the number one regret of the dying is people wishing they had had the courage to live a life true to themselves, fulfilling more of their own dreams, instead of a life others expected of them?
Women living BIG is committed to helping women live fully self expressed, and without regret. Our programs, events, retreats and projects abroad are a combination of learning big, playing big, and giving big. From axe throwing to indoor skydiving, and from surfing in Nicaragua to most recently going to Africa to volunteer and climb Kilimanjaro, this community was created for women like YOU, who want more out of their life, want to stop the excuses, and are ready to live even BIGGER!
