A Motivational Note From Our Founder, Anna Runyan
When I was in 3rd grade, I started a Save the Earth Club. By middle school, I was organizing food for the homeless, teaching Sunday school, and visiting local nursing homes.
As a teenager, I was leading anything I could. I was passionate about youth in government, our high school seatbelt challenge, and leading church mission trips.
And then college happened. I studied abroad, got straight A’s, worked three internships and was completely confused about what I wanted to be when I grew up. I thought I did everything right but felt stuck and confused.
So I took the first job that came along. I worked for a top consulting company for eight years.  I climbed the corporate ladder. I traveled all around the country. I made an impact. I was challenged. But I was still unhappy, confused and stuck.
Then something changed. I started a blog, sold an online course (before I even created it) and found my passion. I chose to write and teach about what I loved.
It didn’t matter what I was teaching; I just loved sharing my knowledge with others. On an average day, I would wake up early, blog, go to my day job and then teach at night.
The beauty of it is this. I was taking baby steps and imperfect action every single day inspired by multiple books, classes, websites, and coaches I was working with. I was learning about my purpose, interests, and improving my health and life balance.
Then, I had this lightbulb moment. Today’s ambitious women thrive in a community, supporting one another to reach our goals and dreams. Why did I have to search so many places (and pay so much money) to find the support and education that I wanted in my career and life?
If life is all about balance, why wasn’t there ONE place that balanced everything I needed for my career success, happiness, health and life FOR me? Why couldn’t all this be in one place for this busy, classy mama?
I think it can. That’s why I started CCG. There’s a revolution that celebrates the balance of work, health, personal development, beauty, motherhood, fashion, money, food, travel, and lifestyle. Some say it’s impossible.
Well, I happen to believe that anything is possible.
Our community may range from young professionals to second career changers, from fast climbing corporate gals to empire-building entrepreneurs.
We all carry the same life-long desire to find the career we were born to do, to be happy and to live a life of meaning.
We hope to be a place where each woman can thrive and make a difference. Thank you for joining us in this journey and we can’t wait to see what happens next!
Love,
Anna Runyan
