About RiSe Women
Rise Women is a business dedicated to helping women boost their confidence, by teaching them that confidence is not something that only ‘lucky’ people have – it’s accessible to everyone! The right information, practical techniques and the will to do (and be) more, is all you need.
So, think of us as your new (low maintenance) besties, your sisters from another mister, the two mums at school that you actually like, your gym buddies or anyone who makes you feel comfortable enough to be your true self, but is also there to support and encourage you.
We're invested in you, because your success is our success, and that can only lead to one thing... a whole bunch of happy, successful and confident women! YAY!
We don’t do doves, we don’t do clouds, we don’t do excessive flowers or love-hearts and we don’t do fluff. We’re the real deal because we’ll always be straight with you – we do bold, we do practical, we do real-life, no BS and no sugar coating (though you will find plenty of shoes and coffee in amongst it all !)
We teach you the best possible ways to increase your confidence levels, grab your day by the metaphorical ‘you know whats’ and get exactly what you want out of your life!
We do 1:1 and group coaching, we do keynote presentations, we do workshops, we publish blogs and other inspo on all things confidence, we have insider secrets of confidence and an e-course that’ll blow your mind, not to mention a book - PUMPED - that is guaranteed to change your life by the time you get to the last page.
And there's so much more to come...
We can’t wait to welcome you into our super-confident world, so what are you waiting for? Let’s go!
By the way, in case you were wondering, the symbol in our logo is a stylised adaptation of the West African Tabono Symbol, which signifies strength, confidence and persistence. How cool is that?!?
BUT who are 'WE'?
Hi, I'm Jodie - the founder (and one half) of RiSe Women. I’m also a mum of two, a self-confessed shoe-a-holic, and a confident woman!
“Are you a confident woman all the time?” I hear you ask. Hell NO! But that's why I’m here and it’s also the reason why Rise Women was created.
From an early age, I was educated (thanks mum!) on all things confidence and was constantly learning and growing when it came to my self-esteem and self-expression. Fast forward to many years later (and many lessons learned) and in 2001, after leaving the corporate world behind and studying to be a coach, I began doing motivational talks every chance that I got - and I loved it!!!!
What always surprised me though, was that people would come up to me after my presentations and tell me how 'lucky' I was to have the confidence to speak in front of people. I was also attracting coaching clients who recognised the value of confidence and would often tell me “I want some of what you’ve got!” It almost seemed as though they believed I was one of the lucky ‘chosen few’ who had been gifted with confidence at birth.
Now let’s get this straight… I was not born with truckloads of confidence, I was not bestowed with a magical gift, nor did I have some super-human genetic code. My confidence is a result of many years worth of growth, learning, mistakes and practise. It’s something I work on daily, using a whole bunch of practical and relevant techniques that, now through RiSe Women, I can share with you.
Over the years, I’ve taught many clients and audiences the confidence techniques that I use daily and have helped them design their own personalised confidence programs. This is how RiSe Women was born and why I absolutely LOVE what I do!
I’m an unapologetically-honest, red-obsessed, jewellery-loving, bold and bright, tell-it-like-it-is sort of woman and am outspoken on topics I truly believe in, especially the rights of women and children to live in safe, loving and healthy environments.
Rise Women has been my passion for years and I’d love to get to know you and help you build the confidence levels you’ve always wanted because, as I always say… ‘With Confidence, anything is possible!’
Over to you, Anastasia…
Hi, I’m Anastasia – the other half of RiSe Women and another confident woman!
I’m also a mum of two, and when I’m not performing hostage negotiation discussions or conflict resolution sessions (isn’t that what all mums with 2 primary school aged kids do ?!), I’m working on Rise Women with Jodie and having a blast.
I’m a super-positive and high-energy self-confessed spelling and grammar policewoman, with a legal background and the desire to do something ‘more’ in life. I’m in my element when hanging out with friends, having fun with my kids, exploring the world or trawling the shops for a new pair of stilettos.
Since the creation of RiSe Women, I’ve helped Jodie get our invaluable message out to a whole bunch of wonderful women – women who need to know that they already have everything they need to live a self-expressed, confident and happy life (they just need to tap into their own pool of fabulous knowledge and insights).
And I know this works, because I’ve lived it first hand. My life’s road has sometimes been bumpy – as it often is for us all – but with the techniques I’ve learnt (and now apply daily), I’ve been able to boost my confidence and rock my own world (pretty awesome, right?)
I’d love to be able to help you rock your own world too, and look forward to working with you soon.
Right, so that’s enough about us. Let's focus on YOU!
