Ali and Lorna talk about all things Bodaciously Bad Ass Entrepreneurism.
About the Guest:
My name is Lorna Ketler, owner and lead body-love enthusiast at Bodacious Lifestyles Inc.
Bodacious originally started as a consignment boutique 20+ years ago and has grown to now feature the best and most beautiful plus-size fashions from around the world!
I passionately encourage women to fully recognize and appreciate their beauty, their bodies, and their curves!
Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and owning it fully is powerful.
After 5 years of living on our boat in Vancouver, I’m now pleased to now call Victoria my home.
I delight in seeing the world with a fresh perspective. In my 50th year, I decided that every month for one year I would create “epic” experiences in my world starting with walking 100 km of the Camino de Santiago on my 50th birthday. That completed, I filled my months with big and small experiences including jewelry-making classes, jumping off the back of my boat for a swim (so awesome!), painting workshops, travel, and most importantly, precious time with dear friends. I even started a ukulele class with my hubby.
You can find my brick-and-mortar women’s clothing stores, Bodacious in Victoria & Duncan, BC, online and at various pop-ups throughout the lower mainland throughout the year.
As awesome as the fashions are at Bodacious, what you’ll find when you walk through the door is a fun, safe, welcoming environment where all bodies are beautiful and worthy of clothing that celebrates YOU!
My passion includes helping women really look at their response to the clothes they're trying on. Do they twirl in front of the mirror? Are they smiling? Are they in love with how the fabric feels on their body?
3 years ago, in the middle of the Covid world, I started swimming with a friend in a local lake. This led to swimming year-round, including when the lake was ice-covered and we had to break through to get in!!
I'm loving my 50's (now closer to 60!) and looking forward to my next grand adventure - yet to be determined!
