With all the crazy buzzwords floating around these days, you might be wondering what we mean when we say “badass”? Perhaps the first image in your mind is someone wearing assless chaps, careening down the highway on a motorcycle at 75 miles per hour. While we can’t deny the inherent badassery in that act, we do, in fact, believe that being a badass is subjective and truly in the eyes of the beholder. Not to mention, it encompasses a whole hell of a lot more than just adrenaline-packed motorsports. Badasses feel. Badasses cry. Badasses binge eat ice cream and might prefer four wheels instead of two. Feelin’ us? Each guest on our podcast has created their own definition of the word, from what it looks like to how it feels — with unfiltered honesty about the roadblocks along the way.

    Ella Dorner- Amnesia survivor “50 first dates style” turned motivational speaker. EP.4

    Ella Dorner- Amnesia survivor “50 first dates style” turned motivational speaker. EP.4

    Can you image waking up one day and not remember anything?  Ella Dorner is famously known for receiving Retrograde Amnesia at age 15 (a fancy way of saying she forgot every memory she had ever made).
    She was forced to re-learn everything from colors and numbers to the difference between humans and animals; not to mention, all of her closest friends and family. After years of re-learning she shares her story of recovery, giving an inside look to our everyday world from the perspective of a child.
    Yes Ellas story is “crazy” but it’s her perspective on life now that I wanted to bring her on this show.  It’s crazy enough to shift your life. Which makes absolutely sense as to why she is now a motivational speaker.

    Emma Sievers- Why I Created the BA.Women Podcast (badass women) EP.1

    Emma Sievers- Why I Created the BA.Women Podcast (badass women) EP.1

    "What actions are you going to take that are consistent with your possibility? Because without action you’ve got nothing.”- Emma Sievers, Founder of BA.Women™
    THIS IS IT!
    Months in the making and at last, the day has come. The BA.Women Podcast is LIVE and the first episode you will get a further look into my vision and actions behind building BA.Women™ (badass women). And who’s this “me” talking?  Let me formally introduce myself…  My name is Emma Sievers and I am the Founder of BA.Women™ and the host to this podcast!  SO incredible to be with you. I have been looking forward to this moment for a long time.
    BA.Women™ has always been about having conversations about our ideas and how to bring them into existence.  I wanted to bring this conversation to life, sharing the value that I was learning from our BA.Women on a broader scale. On the podcast, I  uncover and discover the endless ways we are badass.
    My mom (shout out Mother T) once told me that the greatest gift you can give the world is your authentic self.  The world needs our unique ideas. If you are willing to uncover, take a stand for who you truly are, and be a contribution to others along the way, then I know I am being a badass woman.  And have some fun! Life doesn’t need to be so serious!
    Each conversation, we are gaining new perspectives, experiencing women be real, open & authentic, sharing unique experiences, crazy/scary/amazing stories, leaving me inspired and astonished by each woman behind that mic. I’m constantly overwhelmed with gratitude for those who make the choice to be on the BA.Women Podcast; welcoming our badass audience into her badass world. Each woman reminding me of why BA.Women exists.
    So BA’s…what actions are you going to take that are consistent with your ideas, dreams and goals?
    “I started with this conversation of possibility, like what do you want, declare what you what… now I want to move into the conversation of, “what actions are you going to take that are consistent with your possibility?”  Because its one thing to come to a bowmen event and be really empowered, but what’s missing, and that’s totally my responsibility is… what am I going to give these women and men that come to our events… what am I going to give them that is an action they can take on what they’ve just been empowered and inspired by. Because without action you’ve got nothing.”-Emma Sievers, Founder of BA.Women™

    -What is BA.Women and why did I create it?
    -THE simple question that has been the catalyst for BA.Women.
    -What can you expect to hear on the BA.Women Podcast?
