Legendary Women's Club

Building a Brand Blog on a Budget

When the time came to collect all the amazing women I know and work with into one digital space, I knew I would have to find a low-maintenance, low-budget way to create a turn-key online clubhouse that I could later hand over to a board of leaders within the group.
