Inspirational Woman Project with @BriSeeley

 We met Bri Seeley via the power of #socialmedia & we are so impressed & motivated by her idea: The #InspirationalWomanProject. It all started with this article she wrote published by the The Huffington Post: What Does It Mean to Be a Woman?  which led to a 2nd article that went viral: What It Really Feels Like To Be A Childfree Woman:  Invigorated by the response she's gotten, she has embarked upon a journey The Inspirational Woman Project to interview 100 women on their perspectives & publish it: including some of our very own beloved #ChampagneSisters: Retro Rad Chef & Educator Emily Ellyn, Champagne Jewelry Designer & Charity Supporter Kiron Barui, Entrepreneur & Connector Mella Noir, Wine/Beer/Spirits Goddess Laurie Delk & Holocaust Survivor Lucy Deutsch. WE CAN HELP! Let's inspire Bri with our support! Donate & SHARE her project with the inspirational women in YOUR life:  LET'S DO THIS!!! *ROAR*
So inspiring is Bri's story, that our beloved Jill Hickey @NotSoSoccerMom rose to the challenge & we did a double feature podcast & called the entire day #InspirationalWomenWednesday!

Bri & her project have gotten a ton of press, including this latest article excerpted below. NOTE: quote given to the reporter has been added in full. Links have also been added.

"Last spring, Northfield native Bri Seeley was thrust into the national spotlight with her fashion designs showcased both at Phoenix Fashion Week and Los Angeles Style Fashion Week. In addition, her limited edition collection went live via the online retailer Zappos.

Now she is garnering more national attention, one interview at a time.
The Inspirational Woman Project, started by Seeley earlier in the summer, began as a website with portions of interviews she conducted with 100 different women from all different walks of life. Now, with her recently launched Kickstarter campaign, she is hoping to turn the project into a book.

Seeley first started gathering interviewees within her own personal network, but soon began reaching out via Twitter to make a connection. “I've actually made some phenomenal friendships and business connections along the way,” she said. “Each have such unique stories of how they have achieved their personal level of success and navigated through their pasts and cultural stereotypes to become the inspirational women they are.”
 She asked each woman a series of 15 questions, splitting the answers between what would be saved for publication in the book and what would go onto the website (inspirationalwomanproject.squarespace.com). The site itself, Seeley said, “is more to get content out there and have people interacting with the book in order to encourage them to pre-order it.”

It was through the power of social media that Seeley connected with Mella Noir, a writer, editor and Internet radio producer and host. Mella discovered Seeley’s recent popular contributions to the Huffington Post, and the two soon began a correspondence.

"I thought...I felt...nay, I KNEW it would be a good experience to be interviewed for Bri Seeley's idea The "Inspirational Woman Project".  

I met Bri via the power of social media, where her articles have gone viral, been translated into many languages and gotten a ton of press attention.  I liked her way of communicating, admired her style of writing, her honest and vulnerable approach to reveal her own inner thoughts and also her boldness in her chosen subjects. I promoted her stories to my collective audiences in various networks, they repeated them through theirs and on and on it went...and continues, with no sign of slowing down. 

Bri asked me to participate and what I thought would be a very easy Q & A turned out to be extremely thought provoking,” Mella recalled. “(Seeley) has taken what seems a simple question and stretched it out into an in-depth examination so varied, colorful, unique and multidimensional. When you read the interviews, it is truly a kaleidoscope of thoughts, ideas and communication − all of it profoundly different from woman to woman, yet with an undercurrent of similarity.

I am proud to have been able to participate in Bri's "Inspirational Woman Project", because she has inspired me! The definition of inspire is this: to fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. I truly believe Bri is doing exactly that for all of us, and as her project, website and book race toward the inevitable tipping point, she will inspire so many, many more.  I am so very excited -- not only to watch it occur, but to actively participate in the push!"

Despite her time and energy being focused on this project right now, Seeley views this as an extension of her fashion brand, something that she hasn't abandoned completely. On Oct. 3, she will find herself back on the runway in Phoenix with her Fall/Winter 2014 collection, along with a limited edition "capsule collection" for the Spring/Summer of 2015, which will be made available exclusively in a Los Angeles boutique.

The Kickstarter campaign for the Inspirational Women Project book ends on Oct. 7, and depending on the level of money pledged, incentives include an 8 x 10 art print, a t-shirt with Bri's likeness screen printed onto it, signed copies of the book, or the chance to be interviewed for the book itself.
