Celebrating International Women’s Day

By |March 8th, 2018|Categories: A-Musings, Tales from the Tribe|


Though we hoot and holler about women’s achievements all year long, today, International Women’s Day (#IWD2018), is one more excuse to collectively raise our voices and continue to #PressForProgress (this year’s campaign hashtag).

How do we do that? By challenging bias and inspiring others to take action on behalf of women. By celebrating how far we’ve come. By […]

Grandy’s All-Time Favorite Book List

By |February 15th, 2018|Categories: Expert Insight|

Reading and sharing my love of books has always been my favorite hobby, so when Chelsea, my oldest granddaughter (now my colleague, as Campowerment’s COO), was studying AP English in high school and learning zillions of new vocabulary words, she stumbled on one she thought perfectly described me— Bibliophile: a person who loves or collects books. Yup. That’s exactly what I […]

A New Vision for a New Year

By |January 5th, 2018|Categories: A-Musings|

If you want 2018 to be the year you make your dreams come true, first you gotta have some dreams.

If you could design your life exactly how you want, what might the blueprint look like? (Do you even know what you want?)

I didn’t either. As 2017 threatened to dump me, I faced ’18 without one […]

2017: The Peaks

By |December 23rd, 2017|Categories: HI from HQ|

Does anyone else feel like some time back in January you took a second to blink and now, all of the sudden, you’re on a train, without breaks, speeding towards the gates of 2018? Yea: we do, too.

It’s easy to get caught up in all the should-haves, the would-haves or the could-haves when reflecting on […]

Our Inner Circle: another first

By |December 6th, 2017|Categories: Big News|

Today, with fingers crossed and, for me, an out-of-the-ordinary reliance on the Internet,  we are taking this Campowerment movement to cyberspace with the inaugural gathering of 12 women (+me and Chelsea) from the Campowerment Inner Circle.

Let me take a step back: immediately following our November ’17 retreat in Malibu (our 21st weekend of its kind!), […]

It Takes a Village to Raise a Village: Campowerment State of the Union

By |October 16th, 2017|Categories: HI from HQ|

Disclaimer from Tammi and Chelsea: This blog took us two months to write. Companies *usually* launch stuff and then share it. But we’re a community, so we’re sharing it as it shakes down. Lots of what you’ll read below is already happening, but some is about seeds that are in the process of sprouting. We’re […]

Ranger Cam: Behind the Campfire @ IHC

By |October 2nd, 2017|Categories: Tales from the Tribe|

Ever since I started interning for Campowerment in the summer of 2016, I have been trying to figure out just what Campowerment is. 

I know it’s connection, insight, and new beginnings.  I know it’s supporting adults (WOMEN) in learning how to live their best lives.  I know it’s taking that heavy bag we all carry on […]

One hundred and fifty years ago, my dad’s family— the Leaders — left Russia, crammed into a crowded steamship. And though we may never know if their name really was Leader when they landed at Ellis Island, or if one of my ancestors made it up from the front of the line, it really doesn’t matter.

I was born a Leader.

If I was destined […]

Dropping a Pin for the Mommas on Mother’s Day

By |May 14th, 2017|Categories: HI from HQ|

“How will a pin tell me where you are?” my 81-year-old, brilliantly talented mother and business partner Joan asks Chelsea, my 28-year-old daughter and other business partner.

My mom and I are visiting New York, looking for Chelsea on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The two of them are trying to use technology to help navigate us to the right street corner where Chelsea is standing.
