Be Bold: Transform Your Business

Nicola Lapp TwinFlower Studio

Invaluable Community

"I knew I would start seeing the results I was seeking."

Being a part of a group of passionate, driven, and creative entrepreneurs is invaluable. I started making changes in my personal and business life to create a stronger path towards my financial, spiritual, intellectual, and community goals last year. When I heard about The Bold Founders, it was a ‘run, don’t walk’ moment for me. I knew that by joining this diverse group of women in business, I would begin to see the results I was seeking. I come away from each meeting feeling inspired, driven, and sometimes even humbled because I have room for improvement and am still growing and learning. Even in those humbling moments, I feel supported, seen, and encouraged. I’d love to have you experience this dynamic collective of inspiring women!

— Nicola Lapp, Owner & Designer, TwinFlower Studio

We hear you!

Does this sound like you?


You work tirelessly in your business every day, but the results you dreamed of seem elusive. It feels like you’re taking baby steps forward when what you really want is to 10x your results and experience the freedom you envisioned when you first started your business.


You see others doing “the thing” and wonder when it will be your turn. We’re here to tell you that your time is now! Together, we’ll boldly take action and plan it all out step by step!


You desire profit and freedom but aren’t sure how to achieve it for yourself and your business. How can you grow while still having time for your family, vacations, and enjoying your day without the pressure of rushing back to the office to prevent everything from collapsing?

ready to be bold?

10x your business, your profits, and your freedom!

We created the Be Bold Conference because we know that businesses achieve 10x growth when surrounded by women who have been there and succeeded. You eliminate the struggle of figuring it out alone, pivoting, and trying again. At this conference, you’ll learn from experienced women, grow with a supportive community, and work on your business right then and there with experts.

The Bold Founders community is all about making BOLD plans, with support and accountability for your dreams. You’ll 10x your business, your profits, and your freedom!

This 2-Day conference is for you if...​


Jen Kinal

This year, I decided it was my time to be BOLD. With boldness comes big goals, dreams, and plans. It also comes with fear, setbacks, and hang-ups. But that doesn’t mean we let our dreams take a back seat.

That’s why I created the Bold Founders Conference! If I can be bold in my dreams, so can you! I’ve brought together inspiring women in business who have been part of my journey, who are doing “the thing,” and who can teach you how to do it too! This is more than a conference you’ll feel inspired by; it’s a way of living, a community that understands, and a source of actionable strategies you can implement right there. It’s about transforming your business to provide the freedom, money, time, and travel you’ve always dreamed of.

I can’t wait for you to join us in your year of being BOLD!

Michelle Webber

Serial entrepreneur, Michelle Webber is the founder of SONDR: a clean, ethical personal care brand whose aim is to make changes in industry animal testing policies and to make high quality, ethical and healthy products accessible to more people.

Michelle always knew she did things a little differently and was always told she had an overactive imagination. She spent years diving into that imagination trying to create a life that took her away from the norm, and towards something great.

From flight attendant to public relations to sales to trying to become a travel blogger before that was even a thing, Michelle knew that ultimately, she was meant to work for herself, on a business forged by passion. The entrepreneurial stepping stones that led to SONDR include a successful wedding and event planning company as well as a mobile oyster bar, both based in BC’s beautiful Okanagan, the latter still operating today!

While not looking for another business, Michelle’s passion for animals, combined with her relentless entrepreneurial spirit brought her to her legacy business, SONDR. Frustrated with the lack of transparency in regards to animal testing, and the lack of truly ethical, functional and healthy personal care options, SONDR was born, and so too, was Michelle’s purpose in business and the legacy she hopes to leave behind.

Simone & Ivy Home

Leanne Mohagen

Born and raised on a farm in Saskatchewan, Leanne learnt the basics of what it looks like to live a life full of things that matter – family, friends and making a living doing what you love.

As an official serial entrepreneur, she has spent the last 18 years opening, operating and selling multiple successful businesses – with, you got it – NO business experience or education! 

She is the current founder and co-owner of Simone & Ivy – a home furnishing and decor boutique, owner of the Edmonton Made in the Shade window covering franchise, and loves the opportunity to sprinkle in a few speaking engagements with like-minded entrepreneurs.

Over the years, she’s built a book of knowledge from every win and fail throughout her journey – the roller coaster of starting businesses, building multiple teams, divorce, single parenting, raising 3 teenage girls, selling companies – oh, and travel – let’s throw that in while we’re here. With every year comes new chapters with new experiences – both good and bad, and down right hilarious.

She’s always been aware of the work/life/family balance, and the relationship that has on your overall level of success. Diving deep into her passion for sales, Leanne has travelled North America and presented to thousands of business owners on succeeding in business – aka giving your customers the best possible experience, while having fun doing it.

You will enjoy hearing her stories in a true “Sasky, down-to-earth, relatable and vulnerable way.”  Most importantly, she ensures you walk away with tactile, practical tools that have the ability to change your business, and your outlook on “winning the game of entrepreneurship.”

No matter where you come from, where you work or what you have been through – she’s confident that you’ll relate on a few levels, and walk away with a newfound energy for your business!
