Daring Divas USA
The Daring Divas Story
In 2011 I set a new year’s resolution to build more strong and lasting female friendships. To fulfill this intention, I started a group on meetup.com called Daring Divas of Boulder and Denver. My vision for this group was that it would bring women together through fun and educational activities that would support us in our quest to create extraordinarily fulfilling lives.
I wanted to offer a balance of fun activities, like weekend getaways to hot springs and hiking the tallest peaks in Colorado, with educational activities, like workshops about women’s health, and how to set and achieve goals.
Little did I know Daring Divas of Boulder and Denver would be such a huge success.
Within the first hour that the group was announced on meetup.com, 45 women joined. Now, almost 2 years after the group launched, we have over 1300 (and growing everyday) passionate, engaged, and enthusiastic members along the foothills of Colorado.
Based on the feedback I get from members, as well as my own experience, I think this group is so successful because it offers something to women that is hard to find: the opportunity to build friendship with other women who have similar values, and desire to connect in diverse settings that expand their self awareness and confidence.
Based on positive feedback and the group’s success, I decided to rename Daring Divas of Boulder and Denver, to Daring Divas USA, with the intention of collaborating with other professionals across the country to start Daring Divas groups in their communities.
When women come together to support each other’s success, extraordinary things happen – I’ve witnessed it in Colorado, now I’m ready to help women across the country do the same.
