Kelly McNelis is the founder of Women For One, a destination for women who are ready and willing to make life happen. She travels the world as a speaker, teacher, and facilitator of workshops, helping others tap into lives powered by truth. It seems simple, doesn’t it - telling the truth? Well, in a world ready to judge at the click of a mouse, it’s a lot easier to create stories that keep us safe. But safety keeps us stalled, while the truth makes us nimble, powerful, and creative. Kelly’s dedication to truthtelling helps people in search of more to realize their own personal truths and to share their stories with the world. Through sharing, we find inspiration, community, and can create action that aligns our future with what we know it can be. With over 20 years of experience as a non-profit and small business consultant and trainer, Kelly has worked with governmental agencies; county, state, and national lawmakers and policymakers. She has helped some of the most powerful people in the country develop and implement strategies to streamline their businesses and work more effectively and successfully. She is excited to be one of the many voices behind Women For One, empowering generations of women around the world to build relationships, community, and the support structure they need to recognize and achieve their dreams. She finds her own daily inspiration in spending time with her husband and children in their home outside of Seattle, and is currently writing her first book.

An Open Letter to My Colleagues in the Feminine Empowerment Field

Kelly McNelis

I’ve noticed a troubling trend in the “feminine empowerment” community and among women in general: We say that we are committed to lifting each other up and helping every single sister shine…but many of us are stuck in the old ways of relating to each other. This includes fearful, scarcity-based thinking that keeps us in conflict and competition rather than the connection we yearn for. So what does true empowerment look like, and how can we model it in our work and our relationships?

Honor the Women in Your World—Celebrate International Women’s Day!

Kelly McNelis

I love women: their wisdom, their strength, their courage, and all that they do to build up the people around them and contribute to a world that is more beautiful, righteous, and capable of holding our dreams. I built my organization on the conviction that when women share their hearts, minds, and souls with the world, every single one of us transforms for the better. That’s why I’m inviting you to celebrate International Women’s Day. All around the globe, women and men will honor the she-roes whose work, both celebrated and unsung, makes the world go ‘round. Women For One will definitely be celebrating, and I encourage you to make your voice count on this important occasion.

The Power of the Pause

Kelly McNelis

Every day, I ask myself a simple question: What brings me peace and joy in the moment I’m in? Is it my kids’ presence? Is it my new pup? My relationships? Usually I can attribute some of my happiness to them, but truly, I have a choice every moment of every day to decide what I want to feel.
