These Womxn-Founded Products and Services Will Help You Create a Healthier, Happier Life

At the start of this new decade, many people were envisioning that 2020 was “going to be their year” —the year they made incredible strides towards their goals, prioritized their health and fitness, took their dream trips, started investing.

Well, it’s safe to say 2020 may not have been the year we all anticipated.

But despite the obstacles we’ve all faced in one way or another, why can’t 2020 still be our year? After all, we are ultimately in charge of how we respond to situations outside of our control.

To provide us all with tangible ideas to help us finish out the year strong, we tapped into the Dreamers & Doers collective to source their recommendations for how we can create healthier, happier lives for ourselves.

The result is an eclectic list of womxn-owned products and services with a common thread: a goal of empowering you to live the healthiest, happiest version of your life.

1. Take Back Your Time

A hands-on coaching program that helps super busy high achievers get clear and focused so they can achieve the goals that matter most.

“Through Take Back Your Time, I help super busy high achievers who are pulled in so many different directions day to day cut through the noise and pressures of the million and one things on their plate to get clear and focused on achieving those goals that truly matter to them most. This is especially powerful for women because we’re socialized to prioritize everyone else’s needs ahead of our own. I help my clients craft a holistic vision for their lives, then maximize their true potential to make that vision a reality.”

2. Persistiny

A platform of support where parents can track, value, share, and leverage the unpaid work they do each day to care for their families

“The ‘Mental Load’ is the invisible work required to keep a family running smoothly. Studies show that the overwhelming majority of this work falls on women. Because this work is unmeasured and uncompensated, it’s undervalued in our society, so we built Tend: Task Manager & Journal, a mobile app that gives women a place to track and value their caregiving work so that they can make better, more informed choices about how they spend their time. My co-founder, Aileen Kelly, and I were long time stay at home moms. As our children grew and we prepared to re-enter the workforce, we saw the impact the caregiving work we had done had on our earning potential. Being moms had taught us so much and prepared us to be better professionals. We knew there had to be a way to give value to this work. What would it have looked like if we had tracked the work we did over time? What would it look like if lots of women did too?”

- Felicia Kashevaroff, Co-Founder and CEO

3. Gabbi

Empowering women to understand their body and proactively seek the care they need

“Gabbi equips women with the tools to be the experts on their bodies so they can be proactive and take action. Through our risk calculator and actionable insights, you are able to understand your personal risks and the specific steps you can take to decrease your risks—from lifestyle changes to getting a breast mammogram! 90% of women don't know their risks and my mom was one of them. I had the opportunity to be part of the 10% and am now a survivor. I created this product to change this statistic!”

- Kaitlin Christine, Founder and CEO

4. Fit, Fyne & Fabulous

A virtual, faith-based wellness support group for women that offers custom meal plan development and exercise training plan development.

“Our ministry is a virtual, faith-based wellness support group whose sole mission is to help women live the Fit, Fyne & Fabulous life they have always dreamed of. FFF offers custom meal plan development, exercise training plan development, team-based virtual support and accountability; along with consistent inspiration and motivation through monthly challenges and online health, wellness, and beauty courses that are offered throughout the year. Obesity is a serious concern because it's one of the leading causes of preventable deaths in the US, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke and even some forms of cancer. With almost half of all Black adults obese, overweight, and plagued with preventible diseases, Fit, Fyne & Fabulous was created to address these issues through health and wellness education, support, and engagement.”
