Leading womenpreneurs along the road less traveled toward clarity & impact.
Strategist, Author, and serial entrepreneur, Khrys Vaughan, enjoys challenging multi-passionate womenpreneurs she works with beyond their comfort zones, and their notion of impossible, so they can have the impact they were destined to now, rather than wait for psuedo-imposed milestones.
Khrys has served on various boards/committees including Committee Chair for SBA/Small Business Week-St. Louis, Project Advisor for JCI International, Marketing Co-Chair for Women Build/Habitat for Humanity-St. Louis, Hampton Roads Civic Ballet, and The Bread Ministry, an organization that fed 15,000 families from the East Coast through Arkansas. She previously produced an industry-first webcast, pilot for internet television, & a weekly radio show featuring diverse women in business that reached over 16,000 listens. And led to the first Women in Green Technology panel (Kathleen Rogers, Ingrid Vanderveldt among panelists). Khrys, also created a unique literary group for fenale authors seeking to write better fight scenes and take their projects beyond the book. Her first novel, The Red Umbrella Society, won second place in the Missouri Writing Guild’s Fall Fiction contest.
Khrys was selected to participate in the inaugural Steve Madden/Fearless Fund Get Venture Ready program. And featured in Authority Magazine on why more women founders are needed.
When not working to strengthen the ability of womenpreneurs to be their own solutions, Khrys spends downtime with her family, hikes or other adventures, and delicious vegan dishes.
In Your Words…
Khrys’ outstanding ability to relate, inspire and support has not only helped my organisation to grow with clarity and vision, but also rooted me deeply as a woman to grow towards the light of my true self. Finding alignment between self-identity and businesses we create is what the world needs, and Khrys does it so effortlessly and gracefully.RUI Liu, Founder, grass people tree
