We are Doers, taking one step in the wrong direction is better than taking no steps at all.

It’s OK to want a bigger life!
In 2013 DrivenWoman founder Miisa Mink saw that there was a need for a new kind of network for women that would not only inspire but would become a real movement of proactivity for women.
The idea was to celebrate every woman who wants to chase her dreams, regardless of her circumstances. Real success means more than career advancement or a big paycheck. The idea was to create a club where women could explore their true potential with the support of others and create their own kind of life success.
The first DrivenWoman meeting happened in Soho, Central London on 8th May 2013.
“We saw many women keeping their ideas hidden, not daring to share their brilliance with the world, and we wanted to change that. We saw that women had been staying on the sidelines for fear of not meeting the standards and expectations of society. We realised that many women were comparing themselves with these external norms rather than deciding what kind of success was worth chasing.”
The world desperately needs the brilliant ideas women carry inside their hearts. But life change is difficult because it’s hard to stick to plans on your own.
DrivenWoman and our LifeWorking™ framework was created to help women who are held back by procrastination, overwhelm and self-doubt.
Most networks and events leave you inspired but without an action plan or accountability
to make it happen. A #BiggerLife is about designing a life where you define your own kind of success and break it down into small steps to put into action right away.
“You’ll be offered a variety of action -driven exercises and will be held accountable when it comes to completing them.” FORBES

LAUNCHING A NEW KIND OF EMPOWERMENT EVENT
In 2017 we launched the Festival Of Doers, our flagship event in London with tremendous success. Regarded by the press as the ‘go to’ event for women who are ready to smash the status quo and make things happen. Festival Of Doers ran in London and Zurich and was featured in the international press each year until the pandemic.
OPENING ONLINE MEMBERSHIP
We have witnessed transformations with women of all backgrounds, from women starting their first businesses to mid-career women making it to board positions. DrivenWoman has been the support (and the kick in the back-side) for women launching their first book to creating their online course. Our community is not defined by their past but by their future – ambitious women wanting to live their bigger life!
We believe personal success should be available to all women and so in January 2019 we launched our online LifeWorking™ membership programme, opening up the framework to women around the world.
As part of this development we handpicked top female experts and coaches to bring their wisdom to our online membership, with monthly live video calls and hot seat coaching.
