This week, meet Julie Burton. Founder of the first women’s only co-working space in Minneapolis, ModernWell www.modernwell.co . After the election, she knew women needed a safe space. She asked her writing group, if I built this space, would you come? They not only came, they conquered.

What is the MOXIEST thing you’ve done so far? Starting ModernWell. “I was scared sh$tless and it felt brave and empowering for women in general.”

What do you want the reader to understand about starting your own business? It is like walking through a dark jungle with a flashlight that sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t. Know that you will have dark and uncertain moments. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. And stay connected to your mission and your vision.

What’s a MOXIEmoment in your life? Motherhood: it healed me. It empowered me. It made me grow in ways I never thought possible.

A quote Julie lives by. “Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brene Brown

Her favorite book. Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown because, “I’m in the wilderness.”

Julie’s next MOXIEmove. Explore expanding ModernWell.

And her advice to you. “Have regular staredowns with your fear. Acknowledge it. Look at it. Wrestle with it.”
