Wollstonecraft: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
In 1792 with the backdrop of the French Revolution, Mary Wollstonecraft wrote, A Vindication of the Rights of Women. In the book, Wollstonecraft argued that women should have the same opportunities as men. She disrupted the status quo by daring to persuade others that women should be given an education and civic rights. Wollstonecraft challenged society by asking the question: What are you afraid of? Women are still fighting for pay equality and a voice in modern society. Naming the company after her was a salute to challenging unjust societal norms.
“I do not wish them [women] to have power over men; but over themselves.”

Several years ago I was diagnosed with an illness, and I found myself in a new world where I emerged as a victim. Once recovered, I tried going back to my old life and I was lost.
Experienced strong feelings that everyone was against me
Avoided social situations to lessen my anxiety
Irrational fear of being judged by others
Experienced the “shame loop” for negative self-critical thoughts
Emotionally exhausted but felt the need to achieve more
The Shift: Three years of studying experts in the field of positive psychology and taking small steps of action each day, I started to understand that I needed to create new dreams that represented where I had been and where I wanted to go. I had to shift because I was in an enormous amount of emotional pain. Out of this pain sprung a desire to share what I had learned with others. Teaching people how to shift habits and destructive thought patterns has become my passion.
