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 […]
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 […]

Dear Fellow Lovers of Leaders:
Don’t know what it is about those Leader Fuller women, but when asked if I wanted to write something for Campowerment in the middle of book launch week, under an impressive pile of things I’m either doing or actively not doing (hi, proposal for book two) – I couldn’t do anything […]

Confession time: I may be a walking coach now, but I used to quietly turn my nose up at the idea of walking for a workout. I’d see walkers briskly strolling the neighborhood with gal pals, but I was not having it. I was too busy burning fat and calories in high-impact aerobic classes with […]
Losing is hard.
You put it all out there, talk yourself out of your fears of inadequacy, with your soul at risk. You train and make sacrifices, suit up and show up, with the right equipment and skill set, your body fed, rested and ready. And then: you come up short. Sometimes it’s your own fault […]
