BadAss Woman Influencer-Nola Badass Women

BadAss Women support other BadAss Women; it’s all about what we do and who we are. It’s been said and sadly often proven that women are known to have hate and jealousy towards each other.

Collaboration is a good thing. It goes back to the old saying “kill two birds with one stone.” Just imagine how much we can accomplish if we sat at the table together and devised a great plan! Not only will we eat, but we can break bread together at that same table too! Continue reading BadAss Woman Influencer-Nola Badass Women
