#AfterTheClothes-LOGO-(2)At The Stylish Standout, we believe life starts #AfterTheClothes. Think about it: Once you get dressed each morning, you probably don’t get back in bed. Instead, you set foot into a world that’s waiting for you to help push it forward in your own unique way, whether it’s through your creativity, generosity, positivity—or a combination of the three.

That’s why I created #AfterTheClothes. It’s an ongoing initiative that celebrates you and the game-changing life that you live. Through digital campaigns, in-person and online events, and an occasional giveaway or two, the purpose is simple: to connect you with other like-minded women who are committed to making a difference in ways both seen and unseen.

Wanna join the movement? I was hoping you’d say yes. Here’s how:

  • Tell us how you stand out #AfterTheClothes. In other words, how are you kicking ass personally and professionally? Are you running a start-up in addition to your 9-to-5? A stay-at-home mom that makes the impossible look easy? A businesswoman committed to giving women and minorities the same? A creative whose talent brings a smile to everyone you encounter? Use the hashtag #AfterTheClothes and let us know! (Be sure to include @StylishStandout so we can share on our platforms too.)
  • Tag someone who’s doing the same. Life just isn’t the same without community, right? So I’m counting on you to show us the other Standouts in your network who’re living an impactful life #AfterTheClothes. Imagine all we can accomplish together.
  • Search the hashtag. They say there’s strength in numbers, so browse #AfterTheClothes to find and support women who are committed to pouring more goodness into the world.
  • Follow @StylishStandout on Twitter and Instagram. I’ll share inspirational quotes, articles, and more to keep you motivated to keep on keepin’ on.

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once. But don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.” —Michelle Obama
