They hung with fearless founders and straight up badasses. They made new friends and ran into old ones. They talked with experts and sexperts. They used power tools (some for the first time ever). They Vinyasa-ed, ran, boot camped, hip-hopped, self-defended, and worked their cores. They created. They took time to relax. They perused, they inquired, they browsed, they sampled. They clinked glasses. They were inspired by what they saw and whom they met. They were empowered from the inside out, and it all happened at the first annual Women You Should Know® Fearless Fest (11/14/15)… and it was awesome.

“To be fearless? does not necessarily mean to be without fear, but rather to have the confidence to push past it and do.” – WYSK

You could literally feel the spirit of the event and our mission – women inspiring and supporting one another – throughout the space compliments of the enthusiastic participation of the hundreds of guests who came to celebrate with us, as well as the unique, experiential contributions that our fearless brand partners and fitness instructors made to what was a truly extraordinary day.

There was not a woman who wasn’t completely pumped by all she had seen, done, or experienced at Fearless Fest, and everyone left feeling entertained, educated, empowered, and… fearless!

PS – They even indulged in artisanal cheese caramels… YES! cheese caramels (and they are as insanely delicious as you think).
