How do I apply?
Please fill out application here.  Sign up to be on the wait list to join Charlotte’s premiere private community for female entrepreneurs.

What happens if I am accepted?

We accept a LIMITED AMOUNT of new members each quarter.  (Don’t’ fret—if you are not accepted this round,  you simply hit the wait list!)   Once accepted,  an annual membership invoice will arrive for $179.  This includes access to our private, members only forum where you will have access to the magical minds of the Live Loud founding 100; as well as early bird access and reduced pricing to all events!

What is the Live Loud Collective?

A community of fearless and fiery Charlotte, N.C.-based women entrepreneurial muses and visionaries who celebrate the art of living loud by creating and growing businesses whose core values support each member’s individual definition of success and joy through an =online community, monthly events and the annual ‘Unstoppable Summit.’

WTF does that mean?
We’re more than your typical online networking group. (Really.) We offer real, raw, candid business content and in-person (non-boring ass/vibrant) events. And everything we do celebrates the art of building your business around a rich, full and meaningful lifestyle — one that exists because of your business, not in spite of it. #thereisnosuchthingasworklifebalance But if you’re running your business right, it doesn’t need to be.

Aren’t there a billion other community networking groups and Facebook groups? Why should I waste one second on this when I could be sipping a gimlet and watching “Game of Thrones”?

Hey, we hear you. But here’s why we’re different:

  • We’re Charlotte based and 100-percent focused on women entrepreneurs.  Even our Fish Tank Grant aka ‘Tiny Grants to Do Big Things’ supports the next generation of women-and girls-who are just.like.you!
  • Our leadership team is comprised of successful, local women entrepreneurs who are strong, wise, and totally badass.
  • We’re real, raw, and candid. Live Loud members aren’t afraid to offer insider tips on everything from “firing” customers to finding a therapist. And while we don’t claim to have all the answers, everyone on the team is incredibly skilled and ready to offer expertise, give advice and even share downright f@uck-ups—all to assist fellow fearless and fiery women entrepreneurs.
  • We think badass women don’t need to be huddled inside a convention center, hocking business cards, to connect with other badass women. We prefer cocktail-making classes while learning about the finer points of social media and a Match.com-type system for finding a future mentor. This ain’t your mama’s old-school networking group, and we’re proud of it.
  • This is a multi-level-marketing/franchise-free zone  Though we’re not opposed to either (well, we could do without the random Facebook requests from people ramming skin care down our throats;-) , we’re looking for entrepreneurs who’ve created their own concepts. We celebrate the kind of madness it takes to have a fresh idea and bring it to life.
  • You won’t see a bunch of sponsored or affiliate links that make us money but aren’t amazing. If you see us supporting someone or something, rest assured it’s something we wholeheartedly believe will be effective for our members. (And if we eventually accept affiliate fees, you will always know, and proceeds will go back into the mission.)
  • We will do our best to purchase products from and utilize services from this very group. Not only do we locate women-owned businesses, we celebrate them and support them.
  • We won’t use overplayed and ineffective terms like “work-life balance.” If you’ve designed your business in accordance with what you believe is a full life, “balance” is unnecessary. We’ll show you why.

BUT WAIT—there’s more.

Here are just a few of the perks of being part of Live Loud:  

  • Private/members-only (we should totes make jackets, guys!), limited-release monthly meet-ups unlike any other networking events you’ve ever been to.
  • Twice-annual large group, member-only forums.
  • Annual Unstoppable Summit, a not-to-be-missed event that is part conference, part retreat and part-mutha-truckin-vacation! Our members get first-dibs at signups and a special rate.
  • Soon-to-be-released Live Loud Perks. Think add-ons, value adds and extras, all for members. NOTE: We’re not talking discounts. As fellow small-business owners, we do not ask our friends to discount their services. We do, however, believe in offering sweet, fun bonuses to kindred spirits. 
  • A listing in our member directory of women-owned, Charlotte-based businesses.
