If you’re not following these amazing women, well then, frankly, you’re missing out!

Running a woman-owned online marketing agency, I am always looking for new ways to up my game for my team and clients. I love following and interacting with other kick-butt ladies online as they inspire me to be more, love more and give more daily. I wanted to take a moment and recognize them for everything they do as badass entrepreneurs and business owners, as well as share this list with you in hopes that they'll encourage you as well. 

The following 30 women are leaders I am proud to know and call many friends. They are passionate, knowledgeable, heart-centered visionary women who are masters in their industries! Not to mention, they are impactful to follow. Check them out—learn from them, celebrate them, and see what they’re doing with their business that may inspire you. Each one has something unique and special they share with their audiences.
