You are a professional passionate about making a difference in the world and sharing your expertise with other. You understand the importance of helping to empower the next generation of girls as they are the change we wish to see in the world.

​For many women we have been told how to think, what to wear and how to behave from a very early age and so many of our current beliefs and ways of thinking have been ingrained in us from early childhood. These social parameters placed on us, even the most subliminal ones, have created behaviors and ways of thinking for women that has chameleon-ed us into alternate forms of ourselves unable to fully express our true authenticity because it goes against everything we have been taught as a young child and is a method of emotional and physical self preservation. This has led to many women, especially women entrepreneurs and leaders, to question themselves, to shut down their intuition and inner voice and feel lost, misunderstood and out of place in the world.

This has led to many women, especially women entrepreneurs and leaders, to question themselves, to shut down their intuition and inner voice and feel lost, misunderstood and out of place in the world.

​Our Business and Leadership Incubator was created as a safe space for women entrepreneurs, professionals and leaders to come in and shed the layers and masks they have been wearing and with guidance and support to dig deep to uncover and unleash their intuition, wisdom, gifts and more in a space of compassion and heart-centered integrity.


The women who embark on this mission are taken through a journey of self exploration, un-programming and unleashing of their true authentic self to release that which is not suiting them and reveal their unique passions and heart centered goals. We work not only on personal development and self exploration but we assist in helping women to move past one of the biggest social challenges that they face and that is the competition amongst women. We believe that in order to make large social impact and global change that women need to have a space where they can come together in a place of trust and collaboration to truly support each other on a personal and business level. We want women to learn how to come together as a community with vulnerability, transparency, authenticity and integrity.


As a result of our process the women in our community have a clearer understanding of their strengths, their weaknesses and begin to create goals and plans for their career, business, personal and community life.  Our education and support is 50% Personal and Developmental and 50% Business Education and Advancement.  We believe that in order for women to be successful we need to support all the facets that make up their life as they all play a role in their ultimate success. We believe that in order for women to create a successful and powerful business and career she needs support not just on the business aspect but balancing her personal life, desires, commitments and more as well.


Our Inspiration 

​In the ordinary world everyone is always expending energy on a secondary task, one that robs them time and eventually growth. People today, moreso women, are hiding behind masks used to coverup weakness, faults, struggles and are using energy to “look good”, cover their butts and manage other peoples favorable impressions of them. The result is mental and physical exhaustion, a sense of feeling “lost”, not knowing who you truly are, suppressing intuitive thinking but most importantly the loss of being able to grow ones personal and business potential.


Now, Imagine an environment that was deliberately designed with principles, policies and practices that seek to make some form of “high-growth experience” happen for everyone everyday. In this environment business performance isn't separate from “personal development”. Business and Personal Growth are seen to enable each other. Reaching for higher goals and working through bigger challenges and blocks helps people grow with the end result of being able to achieve more than originally anticipated. This is the fundamental idea behind a DDO a Deliberately Developmental Organization which is the inspiration for the foundation of our incubator and the work that we do. We believe that the skills and culture found within a DDO organization have the ability to help cultivate the change that we wish to see in the world not only with the professionals we work with but the communities, parents and girls that we look to educate and support.

To understand a bit more about the DDO Concept I want you to think back to a high growth experience in your own life. When was it? What were the factors that brought it about? What made it such a period of high growth for you? When asked this question many people will share a time where they experienced a great challenge, something that pulled them out of their comfort zone. They tend to talk about  1) getting some very tough feedback, 2) not knowing if they were going to make it, and 3) receiving significant support and encouragement from one or more people around them. They generally go on to say how much their experience meant to them, how it changed the way they think about themselves and their place in the world, and how it enabled them to be and do more in their lives inside and outside of work.

In this way, we seek to change society for the better.

Raising a Powerful Girl Professional Ambassador Program's purpose is to provide a safe space for professionals to flourish and expand from a place of authenticity, transparency and vulnerability. We believe that every human being has a unique gift and quality to express. We believe that in order to be able to truly flourish and expand we need high levels of challenge, make mistakes, reveal our limitations, have accountability and support each other to overcome them. During this process, each individual is challenged to change the way they think about themselves and their place in the world and will enable them to be and do more in their lives inside and outside of work.
We believe in cultivating a culture and community of transparency, integrity, honesty, respect and empathy.

We believe and honor vertical communication between all levels of the members of our community guided by the rule of positive personal and professional growth and development. We believe in empowering our community to thrive in an environment of inclusivity and diversity.

Characteristics of a DDO


No two deliberately developmental organization is exactly alike. All of them however share some core characteristics:

DDOs  require you to be genuine.  Leave that  mask at home and come as you are, warts, faults and all. Don’t waste time and effort trying to maintain an eminence of control and competence. You are expected to have gaps in knowledge, skill or otherwise. You will be able to work on those inside the incubator.

DDOs  take you out of your comfort zone.  You don’t learn fast by being comfortable. When you are good at what you do, then it’s time to move you toward something different.  We do this in a supportive and nurturing enviroment, a safe space for all.

DDOs  want you to work on your weak points.  Everyone has some skill sets they could be better at. In a deliberately developmental environment, those are quickly identified and made public, so everyone has responsibility to help you work on those.  

DDOs  expect mistakes  and ask you to fix them.  While you are asked to challenge yourself by taking on new duties or roles that often depend on your weakest skill set, no one can expect you to be perfect. Mistakes are expected. Owning those mistakes, getting help to fix them and learning from the experience is also expected. It’s not about being okay to fail, it’s about learning from fixing your mistakes to truly grow.

DDOs  require everyone to play.  From the member to the CEO, all members of the community are bound by the same rules of  transparency and helping each other toward improvements. No one is immune. This is not only a question of fairness, but the fact is, holding a higher rank does not mean that you’re perfect. In fact, those with more responsibilities need all the help they can get to improve. Improvement and development are part of a continuous journey.
