Marty McDonald is the Founder and CEO of education and empowerment platform Boss Women Media, as well as children’s clothing brand Elle Olivia. Like many, Marty McDonald wanted to live her best life so she decided to leap after her dreams of creating a community of empowerment, change, and freedom after an 11-year corporate career with various fortune 500 companies. She took an idea based on connection and turned it into a movement including the multi-city Black Girl Magic Tour, the annual Boss Woman of the Year Summit, and a loyal community of more than 100,000 women. Marty’s plan is to continue to expand the growth of the community of women she is building and to help them empower one another through connection, networking, and workshops. Marty knows that most women are allowing fear to hold them back from accomplishing the goals they desperately want to achieve so now she is on a mission to connect with women who want more, women who have big goals, big dreams and are chasing them every single day.
