Founded in 2017 by Caitlynn Houser, As Told By Women has become a community for all women to realize they can accomplish anything they're passionate about.
"Last year, my best friend and I had started an organization named The Charity Company. We collected and redistributed thousands of goods to less fortunate neighbors around our community (free of charge). It was truly an amazing experience. As successful as it was, it became very overwhelming. Unfortunately, I began shutting myself off as I became overwhelmed -- and without the effort needed to progress further, we decided to put The Charity Company on hiatus.
That decision, although for the best, really altered how I felt about myself. As many of you know, our mental health is extremely important. It controls every aspect of our day. It was a tough time, but I knew I needed to get back on my feet. I began searching for ways to inspire and motivate myself -- anything to get me moving forward again. Although there were many wonderful, inspiring things out there, I felt like I wasn't finding exactly what I needed. And thus, As Told By Women was born.
Our mission is simple: create a community for all women to realize they have the potential to accomplish anything they're passionate about. Inspiration, empowerment, and motivation, all in one place -- for every aspect of their lives.
No matter who you are, remember to always keep moving forward. One step at a time. It isn't always easy, but it's definitely always worth it." -- Caitlynn Houser
