Meet our founder

Kelly McNelis

I’m so happy you’re here with me. I want you to know you’re not alone in your desire for a life that feels real, messy, and 100% YOU. I am so thankful that I get to join you on this journey.

Ten years ago, I knew I wanted a place where I could be 100% myself and share my voice—without being an expert or feeling I needed to get it “right.” It was my dream to create a global community of like-minded women who could learn from each other and share their own life lessons—and thus, Women For One was born.

For over a decade, I’ve devoted my life to helping women empower one another to embrace our voices and make life happen, on our own terms. It’s my goal to offer women in our tribe the best, most inspiring courses, retreats, and opportunities for claiming their stories and voices. It is my hope that in continuing to share women’s truths and talents, Women For One will encourage everyone to take a stand on the issues that most impact our lives, while building a supportive sisterhood.

Through my custom-designed courses, retreats, and global truthtelling platform, I’m here to help you step up, claim your confidence and power, love your messy brilliance, and speak your truth with vulnerable transparency. Because I know from firsthand experience that when we get clear about who we are, boldly claim our passion and purpose, and encourage each other to shine, we create communities where all our voices matter!

Kelly McNelis’s bestselling book, Your Messy Brilliance: 7 Tools for the Perfectly Imperfect Woman, overturns one of the most harmful myths in our culture: that there is a recipe for perfection. Read this book and take the most important journey you’ll ever embark on: the journey back home to your messy brilliance!


The world needs your voice
& so do we

At Women For One, we empower one another to embrace our voices and make life happen, on our own terms. We champion women who are ready to step up, claim their power, love their messiness, and speak their truth with vulnerable transparency. We believe that when we become clear about who we are, boldly claim our passion and purpose, and encourage each other to shine, we create supportive communities where all our voices matter!

We offer our global community opportunities to connect with themselves and each other through inspirational online courses, top-rated live events like our weekend retreats and Truthteller Tour, and community sharing that builds our confidence and bonds us through our similarities and differences.


OUR offerings

For the past decade, Kelly and Women For One have been here to help women all over the world emerge stronger. More connected. More confident and empowered. More of the brilliantly messy women we naturally are. That’s why Kelly and her team have designed inspirational women’s courses, retreats, and events—especially for you. Because your voice is the one that will make a difference—maybe even to someone you’ve never met.

“I LOVE Women For One. This beautiful community website is a powerful forum for women to share from their depths. When we consciously share our stories with each other, when we can be vulnerable in a safe place, then huge healing happens. Women For One offers a safe haven that is transforming the world, one woman at a time. I am honored to be part of this amazing movement and encourage all women to dive into the wisdom that comes from the diverse voices that make up the whole of Women For One. Thanks, Kelly, for your heart and vision in bringing women’s voices back into the world.”

“Women For One has provided me with endless moments of inspiration. The thought-provoking quotes…leave me with the opportunity for self-reflection, and ultimately, improved self-awareness.”

Michelle Pfeiffer, Founder of Anna’s Angels

“Women For One is a luminous beacon of hope for so many women on the planet. With a grounded and enheartened presence, it invites and supports self-revealing, healing, and transformation—celebrating and reminding the divine feminine of their inherent worth. It is a beautiful place to turn to, to connect with, to gather.” 

Jeff Brown, Author of An Uncommon Bond and Founder of Soulshaping Institute

“Kelly McNelis is a wayshower for women! The amazing community that she has created, Women For One, has literally changed the lives of thousands of women since its inception. Kelly gives us all the opportunity and permission to stand up, speak up, and share our light with the world, in our own unique way. It is a mission that inspires me to be a better woman. Women For One reminds us of the power of the feminine, the sisterhood that has been so easily ignored, and calls us into inspired action.” 

Sunny Dawn Johnston, Author of Invoking the Archangels and The Love Never Ends

“Nobel laureate Amartya Sen said, ‘Empowering women with more choices and more freedoms is crucial to achieving a better future for all.’ I believe that, too. That’s why Kelly McNelis is a hero. By exposing women to sisters, colleagues, and mentors in their lives, Kelly not only weaves community, but also helps the sisterhood generate power and possibilities associated with balance, family, and work life, providing them a forum to share how they envision the future, and to take steps toward birthing it.” 

Barnet Bain, Producer of What Dreams May Come and The Celestine Prophecy, and Author of The Book of Doing and Being: Rediscovering Creativity in Life, Love and Work

“Women For One offers us a wonderful guide to raising our sights and taking the high road in life. The frank and honest sharing of both the pain and struggles we endure, and lessons we learn along the way, are evidence to the power of introspection, faith, and self-love. We recognize ourselves in one another and are encouraged and uplifted in our own lives. Keep spreading love and light.”
