May 28th, 2017 To the Mama Who Got a Shitty Diagnosis By: Tess L
Being Mama, Inspiration, To The Mama Who... IMG_4060

To the mama who got a shitty diagnosis: Know that the diagnosis is the worst week. The tests. The waiting. Those words when you  find out it’s multiple sclerosis, or parkinsons, or, in my case, cancer.

Adventuring After Baby, Being Mama, Go Big, Inspiration, Our Tribe, Rad gritandrock-1494445359351

We’ve noticed something, and perhaps you’ve noticed it too… Upon becoming a mother, people’s expectations and perceptions of your ability to go hard athletically in the mountains seems to shift. People don’t expect you to crush, send, or shred the gnar; they don’t expect you to show-up, let alone perform. And it’s weird, you don’t realize how dignifying it is for the world to expect great things from you… until they don’t anymore.

May 8th, 2017 AMI Founder Chats: Shit’s Gettin’ Real By: Adventure Mamas
Rad, Things Are Happening stephsteen

These past 18 months have been a wild ride…wild AF. What started off as a way for two new mamas to connect with like-minded women, has turned into something so much bigger. And that has very little to do with us and everything to do with YOU. When we decided to build up a badass mama crew, we had no idea it was going to spread so fast.

I don’t have some perfectly-organized, elegantly-articulated, seamlessly-written piece to share today. It seems like when people are going through shitty times, they often tell stories about how they’re warriors, about how they’re going to get through it, about things happening for a reason, about strength and courage… I don’t have the energy to prepare something… Read more »

Internship ad or social media soapbox rant? Um, both. Social media is arguably the greatest change-catalyst of our modern age. If it’s progress you seek, find a way to reach and engage your audience authentically. In our technologically saturated world, that means being a social media boss—seriously, it’s powerful shit. As our days become busier… Read more »
