About the authors

See that photo of us together? That was taken the day after we met for the first time. August 23, 2014. Months after we turned our final draft into our publisher. Yep, we wrote a book without ever having met in person. And, we had a blast doing it. We seem to be the perfect partners: our skill sets complement each others’, our perspectives on life and work line up well, and we can make each other laugh without much effort at all.

We both want to help other women succeed and that’s what this book, this site, and this work we do is all about.
