There is a new community for women that is empowering women's lives across the globe and it's called BraveHeart Women. It is described as "social networking for women with a purpose," this community is built from an inspiring vision of its founder Ellie Drake. This social networking site is based on the premise that women can transform the world when they find their own voice and power. The founder, Ellie Drake, has developed a new paradigm for women to do business without experiencing high levels of stress, as well as strategies that inspires women to take aciton.

The BraveHeart community fosters personal growth and global change by first helping women raise their self-esteem and confidence as well as enhance growth on a professional level. Thousands of women are actively creating alliances every day that help fellow members to succeed. If you are a woman who feels exhausted from swimming upstream in a man's business world, BraveHeart Women offers a new paradigm of how women can build their own businesses and operate them the way a woman would, as well as be able to collaborate with others who are turning their dreams into reality.

Women around the globe are learning how to follow their own hearts in the BraveHeart community to inspire themselves as well as inspire others while discovering how to work smarter. Part of that realization lies in rising above a world of conflict into one of collaboration. BraveHeart Women treat each other like sisters, and as such, join forces and use their individual skills and talents to create powerful results - such as: creating a more balanced life, happier families, very successful businesses and a more peaceful world for everyone.

In the BraveHeart community for women you will learn how to find your passion, become empowered in your life's purpose, while building self-esteem. This unique group of women in this private, online site, is where women can come to safely exchange ideas and passions without judgment. In addition to exchanging ideas about things such as global issues, you can also learn how to build personal peace and prosperity for you and your family. You will be part of a global sisterhood of women who want the best for themselves as well as for you, and are spending the time and energy it takes to help each other reach their goals.

Being part of the BraveHeart community gives you access to groups of women around the globe through forums, communities, discussion boards, videos, as well as BraveHeart Women TV where you will find daily inspiration in ten minute videos. Transformational leaders and celebrities have already recognized this powerful vision that is creating empowered women and have stepped up to endorse it including: Dr. Maya Angelou, Leeza Gibbons, Lisa Nichols of 'The Secret,' Mariel Hemingway, and Kathy Ireland.

After the BraveHeart annual meeting called RISE in October of 2010, Janet Smith Warfield from Venice, FL said, "I had tears streaming down my face throughout that face-to-face, heart-to-heart, soul-to-soul touching of Palestinian women with Israeli women, BraveHeart Women with BraveHeart Women. I was so proud of those tears. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all just release our pain and love one another?"

Laura van den Berg, M.A. who attended from France had this to say, "What touched me the most was the sincerity of all these wonderful women all ready to meet each other with an open heart even if we were strangers. I heard so many inspiring stories and I felt so welcome!"

Many women reported being deeply touched by the experience of "sisterhood" at RISE. Lisa Collins from Aztec, NM sums it up beautifully, "What I really loved was that for a moment we were all ONE. It was like time stopped and there was peace in every country. We were all one color! We were all the same size! We were all in the moment together and open!"

These women are not alone. In 2006, BraveHeart began with 100 courageous women led by the founding inspiration herself, Ellie Drake. Today that community for women, numbers over 500,000. Maybe this isn't so much a community as it is a movement that has arrived just in time. Would you like to bring your light and join us?
