Kick your heels up and put your party pants on! In celebration of International Women’s Day, I’ve created a roundup of a several business women that are out there killing the game. This includes style icons, entrepreneurs, fitness professionals, and all around badass boss babes.

In so many aspects of my life, I notice the people around me, that inspire me either directly or indirectly on a daily basis. What I appreciate and cherish most, is the incredibly strong group of women that surround me. These women show strength, power, and determination in their craft, business, and their specialized industries. These women inspire me to open my eyes a bit wider, respect myself more, and push myself beyond my boundaries.

Therefore, I dedicate this post to them. I hope that each one of the women that I’ve chosen to feature (in no particular order), help to inspire you as well. Watch them take over social media, watch them excel in business, but better yet, watch them take over the world. I have faith in them, and I faith in you!

However you celebrate National Women’s Day, take a moment to thank yourself as well as the women around you, for being the strength in your life.
