For All The Girls That
Go For It.
"Go For It" meaning; being afraid and going after your dreams anyway. Not letting another person keep you down and going after what you want. Being fearless every single day, even if your circumstances tell you otherwise.
We want women to show up as their best selves. With all the craziness going on in the world, with all that society tells us to be - we think women can overcome every single obstacle that is placed in front of them.
We want women to slay.
It all started when our founder, Ashley Leggs, was sitting at her desk at her corporate job of over 5 years, wanting a change, but not sure which way to go. Ashley was the only black woman on her team and in her region at the firm, and longed for a community where she could come to work just as she was, and not have to "pretend" to be someone she wasn't born to be.

"I can't be the only woman that feels this way. I can't be the only woman that knows she's destined for greatness, but her peers treat her otherwise. I can't be the only woman, with big goals, and big dreams."
It all started when our founder, Ashley Leggs, was sitting at her desk at her corporate job of over 5 years, wanting a change, but unsure which way to go. Ashley was the only Black woman on her team and in her region at the firm and longed for a community where she could come to work just as she was, and not have to "pretend" to be someone she wasn't born to be.
Ashley was up for a promotion at her firm, and ready to relocate across the country to Los Angeles. She was more than prepared and ready to make a big life change. However - she was denied. After several interviews and several requests for a job transfer - Ashley had enough. She sat at her desk and said she would become her own boss. She would be the change she wanted to see, not just in the workplace but in every area of a woman's life.
Ashley decided to create her own company. A place where women like her, women who looked like her, and women who shared her same experiences, could be seen. She wanted women to be heard. She wanted women to "go for it" - even if their bosses, friends, or even family members told them they couldn't do it. She started an Instagram account, a website, and a podcast 2 weeks later and called it "Slay Girl Slay".
Slay Girl Slay is a media company dedicated to inspiring & motivating women of color to take up space in the rooms that they stand in, fiercely go after what they deserve, and to always show up as their most unapologetic, most authentic selves. I created Slay Girl Slay in an effort to create a community of sisterhood amongst diverse women in our country, by putting out messages through a podcast every week. Messages that encouraged women to fight for what they truly believed in. Messages that inspired women to create the lives they’ve always wanted to live - regardless of their backgrounds, circumstances, or income.
Sisterhood. Community. Dreams. Goals. Plans. We believe in ourselves to put forth our mission, and we believe in you to see your mission through.
Hate. We don't do hate, it's all love here boo. If you feel the need to spread hate, respectfully this space is not for you.
Podcasting to the masses via our weekly girl chat with Ashley, slaying a good book club read, or hanging with our boo's in the Girl Gang.
To uplift. To motivate. To inspire. That's it...that's all.

Podcasting! I love all things Slay Girl Slay podcast, it's like my virtual way of having "girl chat" with all of my listeners. When I first started podcasting I had no idea what I was doing! I started with just a $20 microphone I purchased online and well...here we are!
