HOW IT WORKS

Our mission is to help female founders build brave leaders and teams so that they can experience joy and success both personally and professionally.

Jolynn Swafford, Founder & CEO

Jolynn is a former chief executive turned entrepreneur, master life and business coach, author, apparel creator, inspirational speaker and social media influencer.

Her obsession is simple - to create scalable leadership and workplace coaching solutions that bring more joy and progress into the daily lives of working people. 

For nearly four years, she trained thousands of people on how to build their own companies after leaving their careers behind because of a lack of appreciation, burnout, income, or flexibility.  

She realized that we were leaving the other 98% of working people behind.   When the pandemic hit, women suffered the most - our efforts towards closing the gender wage gap were severely impacted as more and more women were forced to stay home and care for their families.

So we pivoted...

Today, Beyond Brave Co. proudly focuses on serving female founders.  Our mission is to help female founders build brave leaders and teams so that they can experience joy and success both personally and professionally.

Jolynn is also a wife and mom to two of "hers" and two of "his" nearly grown children.  She lives on the beach in beautiful, sunny Southern California.
