About

What is Creative Souls Tribe?

Ever walked into a room and felt like you didn’t belong? Us too.

That’s why we started the Tribe. We couldn’t find a community that truly represented diversity of women – ages, industries, ethnicities, relationship status –  so we created one. What started as a passion project over coffee at Starbucks, has blossomed into a thriving movement of women embracing their uniqueness and supporting others along the journey.

We are a community that inspires, equips and challenges women to live above mediocrity. We accomplish this through our daily encouraging posts, Wednesday blogs, monthly newsletter, meets ups, workshops, and annual conference. By surrounding yourself with other dream chasers,  you realize you are not the only one struggling. You are not an island. We were created to do life together!

In this Tribe, we value: 

  • Who you are over what you do
  • Community over comparison
  • Authenticity over insincerity   
Creative Souls is a tribe of women who strive to live with purpose. We focus on living a well-balanced life by addressing the mind + body + soul. You were created for a specific reason. Are you living life to your fullest potential? If not, we’d love to meet you and hear more about your passion! You can contact us HERE. Get plugged in by attending events, share your talents, and meet like-minded women who are impacting our city. #creativesoulstribe
