Thanks to you and the other loyal community members, IAAW has defied the odds and is still eagerly pursuing its purpose to make women’s lives (especially yours) even better.
In the past 2 years, more than 4,000,000 people (mostly women) from 219 countries have either watched one of our inspirational movies and/or visited our website.
We’re actively emailing more than 150,000 women and connecting with 30,000 amazing women on Facebook.
Our story will inspire you and help you understand how we started, what we accomplished (including our failures) and where we’re going.
Whether you’ve been with us since the beginning or if you’ve joined us along the way, we’re excited to share our story with you as we celebrate our 2-year milestone.
IAAW’s Story (a.k.a. our humble beginning):
We launched on July 15th, 2010, with a timely and powerful movie (and poem) for women entitled The One Flaw In Women.
This movie spoke so deeply to women that it went viral and reached more than 500,000 women in over 200 countries in the first two weeks of its release.
It still touches all those who watch it, and has reached more than 2,000,000 women to date.
David Boufford (my co-founder) and I struggled to determine how to best serve this community of women, but we stuck with it until we found a way. It started out as a part-time endeavor and became a full-time business for me in September 2011.
Sadly for me, David Boufford left the company in November 2010, but he remains extremely supportive to our cause today.
In our first year, we partnered with more than 100 guest bloggers to deliver valuable information (via blog articles) to support you with enhancing your life, relationships and career. Today we have more than 1,000 blog articles on our site with over 200 guest expert bloggers.
Last year we also launched our highly acclaimed
Love Your Life Summit hosted by best-selling author Marci Shimoff.
More than 70,000 women from 204 countries signed up to participate in this very first video-based telesummit.
We delivered interviews with 22 experts in 10 short days.
Our interviewees were world-renowned experts such as Dr. John Gray, Lisa Nichols, Jack Canfield, Marianne Williamson and other amazing leaders in the areas of love, wealth, health, spirituality and more.
Although the Love Your Life Summit wasn’t a financial success (we actually lost a lot of money), we’re proud that it made a profound difference in so many people’s lives — including members of our own team!
We launched our complimentary Live Q & A Coaching Calls last September and these have been both my favorite and our most impactful work to date.
The featured expert and I answer members’ questions in a safe and supportive environment.
We get to the heart of their challenge and callers leave the experience feeling transformed.
Plus, the people listening in are also able to benefit tremendously from these breakthroughs.
One of my favorite quotes is from the legendary Zig Ziglar. He says: “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing — that’s why we recommend it daily.”
We’re constantly looking for ways to inspire and motivate you daily in your pursuit of living your best life.
Here are a few more ways we do that:
- Daily emails packed with key insights and wisdom for living.
- Frequent (8+) daily updates on our Facebook page (as well as on all our social media profiles).
- A monthly pre-recorded Expert Interviewfrom your favorite guest experts.
- Private and intimate Forums on our website so you can get the candid peer-to-peer advice and perspective that you’re looking for.
- Direct access to 6 amazing women from the IAAW community who are your Support Team.
As I’m sure you can tell by now, we are truly committed to helping make your life (and the lives of women everywhere) even better.
What IAAW members have to say about us:
In last year’s end-of-year survey, we asked our loyal fans and community members how they would describe IAAW to their loved ones.
Here’s a summary of what they said…
It’s All About Women is the perfect place to feel good about being a woman. They are truly dedicated to making women’s lives even better!
It’s a safe and supportive free online community for women to enhance their lives, relationships and career.
You’ll enjoy the inspiration, expert guidance and advice you need and you can easily share it with the important women you care about.
What’s next for IAAW?:
1. The creation of several micro-products ($7 mini-products) packed with the best advice for women on a given topic.
These products will be easy to consume and available on our website as well as through channels such as Amazon.com, iTunes, etc.
Our first eBook bundle just launched this month!
2. A premium, low-cost monthly membership that will provide access to all of our premiere videos, audios, products, and more — a place for any woman who is serious about making her life even better…a small monthly investment for significant value and payoff.
This initiative will be launched in September 2012.
3. We’re looking for a spokesperson, leader, CEO and/or partner (man or woman) who will be the driving force behind IAAW. This person(s) will work closely with me, my team and the community to make IAAW the leading website for women.
Stay tuned for more details on this opportunity. In the meantime, if you’d like to apply or nominate someone, please email the specifics to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your feedback always matters:
We always want to know what you think. Your input helps us make the necessary improvements to support you and women everywhere.
If you haven’t done so already, I ask that you please complete this short survey and get instant access to a free 90-minute video interview with my friend, Jennifer S. Wilkov.
We are proud to say that the impact we’ve (including you) made reaching more than 4,000,000 women in 219 countries has been through word-of-mouth.
Meaning that we share our movies and articles with the IAAW community and they share them by forwarding the emails, “liking” and sharing them on Facebook and by sharing them in other ways.
We’ve noticed that the “viralness” of our communications have gone down lately and we need your help to help make more women’s lives even better.
You can do this simply by forwarding our emails and following the “sharing” instructions at the end of every movie and at the bottom of every article.
Thank you SO much for being such a loyal member of the IAAW community and for celebrating our 2nd birthday with us.
Your commitment and dedication to your life, those you care about and women everywhere is amazing!
