A Word from our Coterie Members
I met Bri and Thais at one of their first monthly dinners and knew they were up to something special. As a life coach myself for women, specializing in body image and self-worth, I know it can be painfully hard to connect with other women without fear of comparison or judgement. The space they create in their events is very open and warm, and creates opportunity to build a community with other women that I wished I had when I worked 16 hours a day in the film industry. But also as a new coach, the connections I've made haven't been about getting clients (although that's been a happy by-product), through their own network I've made friends, received amazing tools and connected with mentors to support and amplify (see what I did there) my own growth in exponential ways.
As a newbie in LA, I was pretty much attending any and every event I could get my hands on! I attended a lot of events including some fun networking events but my first Amplify event really changed the way I thought about meeting people in a new city. Amplify's focus on the human aspect of interactions, while it seems completely obvious, is something we actually don't often focus on (especially if you've come from a high-speed city like New York!), and I realized that just "getting business" was not in fact what I really wanted out of a new acquaintance anyway. I wanted true connection. And that's what I got and continue to get through Amplify.
I joined the Coterie because I’ve always been looking to find likeminded women + entrepreneurs to network with. I’ve been to other networking events in LA but I didn’t like vibe or the energy. They were really competitive and not supportive. I went to my first event and I absolutely loved it. I met four women there who I continually speak to on a regular basis and we have dates to hang out. I feel like they really get what it’s like to work really long hours and still have work/life balance. I think other women should join the Coterie because you’ll really find a great environment to talk about what you’re passionate about and it’s more uplifting than anything that I’ve ever seen in LA.
I was actively seeking a new way to meet quality women in Los Angeles and a friend recommended Amplify. I signed up for the Coterie the night of my first dinner and haven’t looked back. This group has literally changed my life! Bri and Thais are so warm and fun and their un-networking leadership skills are second-to-none. At every event, they create a safe environment for strong, amazing women to be real, open up and truly connect. Through the Collective I have met incredible friends and explored topics I wouldn’t normally think about but that make all the difference in the world and in my life. The connection on Facebook is equally as powerful and seeing women in person that I’ve connected with on social media is always super exciting. I can’t say enough good things about this group!
I met with another member yesterday and we joined a month ago. We both agreed that we’ve gotten our money’s worth a million times over already. I can’t wait to see what else I get from this group in the next year. It’s been amazing and I love it!
It’s so incredible to be in LA and to be connected with other purpose-driven women who just want to sit down, be real, connect, do life together. It’s an honor to be around all of these [women].
Even though I’m from LA, I live in LA, it’s really hard to find a bunch of girls who are like-minded, who are kind, who are filled with purpose, and want to spend their time together. I find relationships here to be very fractured, very distant, very surface-level . . . so, to see a group of inspired women that have amazing leaders that want to get together, that want to go deep, that want to support each other in their passions and their mission is exactly where I want to be!
Amplify is something that I look forward to every month. It has given me confidence to do what I love, to try new things, to put myself out there, that it is okay to be vulnerable and I have made long lost friends. Amplify is un networking at its finest, it's about going deeper, which I didn't know I needed to until I started going to Amplify. It is an amazing feeling to know I have a group of women I can call for anything. We are always there for each other at Amplify. Love this group because it is women supporting women and being open and honest with one another. Amplify is amazing and it will be something I will take with me forever and be thankful for.
Amplify is a great way to connect with women who all share the same passion to connect and inspire each other. I'm already looking forward to the next gathering. Bri and Thaís know how to lead a gathering and I left feeling excited and connected.
