Interview with #makeanimpactmovement change maker Kelly Cotter

Between November 5th and November 7th of 2018, we and the Badassery Community made a huge impact on Instagram and in this world. We are called on every woman to show up and use their powerful voices to be seen and heard. Because…

We are stronger when we rally together. 

OUR GOAL: Make An Impact

Together, we went out and did big and small things that count, we took photos, and shared them on Instagram using the hashtag #makeanimpactmovement.

Our community documented hundreds of actions that affected the bigger picture and lit their souls on fire. Things like:

  • Voting
  • Paying it Forward
  • Volunteering
  • Donating
  • Taking Care of Themselves
  • Gathering Others

One of the key supporters in this movement was Kelly Cotter. We sat down with her and asked her to tell us more about her and what making an impact means to her.

What does it mean to make an impact?

To educate, to encourage, to empower!

How can you as an individual make an impact?

If you can do anything, just be kind!

How is your brand/business focused on making real change in the world?

My business is dedicated to providing sustainable, safe, non-toxic, effective and affordable product alternatives to the products most people use every day.  I love this!

What is your definition of success?

I have to quote the great Ralph Waldo Emerson…”To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To leave the world a better place whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; This is to have succeeded.”   The words I live by!!!

What makes you a badass?

I am an influencer!  Not by elevating myself, but by lifting others – that’s how we all rise.  I am grateful. I am change. I am vulnerable. I am a warrior. I am unbreakable. I am powerful.  I am beautiful. I am strong. I am enough. I am me!!!

What should we watch for, from you, in the future?

I will be raising more awareness about the dangers and the harm that national brands and big names are bringing into our homes and encouraging people to make a change for themselves, their families and others.

What inspired you in building my brand/my business empire?

I have a passion for giving back/paying it forward; for clean living; for educating people about the harmful chemicals they are exposed to through their everyday product choices – I wanted to offer them something else!  A better way of living. I aligned myself with companies that share my passion and my vision. A way to give back!
