Danielle Boose is an inspiration for women. She describes her self as “a mother, warrior, visionary, lifetime learner, survivor, and overall badass chick” Through all the difficult moments she endured, she has found a powerful way to share her story with other young women struggling through the same things. Danielle’s story hasn’t been easy. From working at a school at first and losing her passion, to enduring a heart attack, Danielle was not born an entrepreneur. She did not wake up and say one day, “I’m going to start a successful not-for-profit company today” It was a process that led her to where she is today, which is – a fully functional not for profit that is inspiring many young people and also providing Danielle with a life of entrepreneurial freedom.
