If anybody asked us back in the same class in high school if we’d see ourselves 20 years later taking what feels like one of the most significant risks of our professional lives to working on a lifestyle blog together, we’d probably have said, “Umm, no?!” 

Don’t get us wrong, we shared smiles and niceties in the hallway, but our circles didn’t cross, and we didn’t know each other. Like at all. A chance Facebook post on women and empowerment made us reconnect, and we quickly realized that behind our professional identities we both shared a love for community, women, and raising one another up. We believe in the power of the collective and being vulnerable, and realize that growth comes from taking risks, building confidence, and surrounding yourself with people who make you better. Together, we have complimentary career goals and are moms to some fantastic, fierce little ladies. So stuff clicked fast. And after lots of meetings and matcha lattes, Moxie’n’More was born. We officially started our partnership in March and took our website to live in Summer 2018.

tips to get you in bossmode

  1. First and foremost, surround yourself with collaborators who will push you to grow and take calculated risks. That's the best part about our partnership. We weren't friends who wanted to work together -- we worked together and became friends. When we reconnected it was because of a similar passion and the need for something a little more in our professional lives, so the partnership came about organically. 
  2. Second, if you find the right collaborators, then trust them. Make the big plan together, get aligned on your vision, and then let each person do the part they're good at. Offer feedback, share ideas, but ultimately embrace the collective dynamic that's created from both the joint and the individual contributions of each member of the team.

Setting goals in motion.

With this venture, we're just getting started! One goal is to create content that is relevant to our readers, but that also has empirical evidence so that we can offer tested strategies to facilitate change. We both love writing but are also data nerds at heart, so we're working hard to find an equation that offers relatable content with validated tips and action steps to help women navigate personal and professional growth. To work towards this goal, we're learning in every way possible -- conferences, analytics, and good old trial and error!

How we get into BossMode?

Nikki loves to spend time meditating and looking at her vision board first thing in the morning, and Keli loves to wake up and write right away. We both realize how our internal clocks work and try to find a rhythm that maximizes our productivity.

IN BOSSMODE and the women you spotlight represent the Moxie — the force of determination, character, and nerve — that we hope to foster in ourselves, our daughters, and the women around us. We love seeing how you build women up and create a community of support and confidence.
