Hey! We’re super excited to be announcing the official launch of The VINAZINE. You may have noticed that we started writing a lot more on our company blog the last few months, and we’ve really gotten into the flow here!
With our distribution growing exponentially, and our network of editorial contributors in The VINA Society growing by the hundreds, we’re super proud to tell you that The VINAZINE is here to stay, and it’s only going to get bigger and better!
So, consider this your official “CAN’T STOP, WON’T STOP” notice!
But read on, because I really want to tell you more about why this is actually crazy important to you and the world, and what you can expect from us in the future.
Our mission at VINA is to empower women by giving us the resources necessary to live our most authentic, free, and happy lives. Whatever being empowered means to you, we support that. Whatever brand of women you choose to be, we support that, too. Empowerment is about the process of becoming stronger and more confident – literally that’s the definition. Women’s empowerment as whole is about personal growth, it’s about your journey to your best life… on your terms.
Empowerment is about the process of becoming stronger and more confident
Your future of health, wealth, and happiness depends on investing in you and the people around you, and we’re here to celebrate and accelerate that… but not in like a boring school/teacher/therapist way. We’re more about fun, keepin’ it real, and making it beautiful. Don’t you feel like the best advice comes from our girl friends? Yah. Us too. So, we’ve hand selected some of the best women we knew from the Hey! VINA community to be all of our girl friends, so we can be/do/live our best.
You’re probably thinking being your best sounds great all, I mean who doesn’t want to be the best? But I want to clarify. Best doesn’t mean rolling in cash, having straight A’s, or getting a “perfect” body (whatever that means). The best you is authentic you. If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry, we’ll figure it out together.
Can I tell you a little story? I’m personally really passionate about “be your best” in huge part because of my parents. There were times when being the kid of two hippies in Southern California was not the best (ie. Nobody ever wanted to trade my carob chips for their candy bars. Ugh). But there was one thing that they instilled upon me that’s really stuck. Whenever I got a less than perfect grade in school, my parents wouldn’t have anything to say except, “Did you do your best?” What I realize now, is that they built a sense of personal ownership on building my future, ownership of my effort to results, and an internal system for measuring myself. So, as long as I knew I was striving to do my very best, no outside appraisal mattered.
…if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together…
Let’s set a challenge for one another at the start of this journey, we promise to do our best to bring you great articles written by fabulous women about how to live your life better than ever, if you promise to keep on pushing forward to be better and better every day.
They say if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. On this special day, International Women’s Day, let’s celebrate what we can achieve when we choose community over competition, and we work together to support one another as women. As part of the VINA community, you should feel confident in knowing that you have thousands of women just like you, supporting you, and cheering you on right at your fingertips.
See ya on The VINAZINE – in app and online!
