About OTB

We are a community reminding women that when we get knocked down, we always have the power — no matter how long it takes —  to stand back up.


I was always the daughter/friend/mother/wife/sister who tried to do and say the right things in life. That’s why if you knew me personally, you would see how hysterically funny it is that my legacy might be being known as a “Tough Bitch.” People laugh because I can barely say the brand out loud. However I learned the hard way when life knocks you down, a powerful internal mantra can help lift you back up!

It all started when I was facing a second round of cancer in 2017, I felt down and scared. One day I tried to give myself an internal pep talk:  “You did this before, you can do it again. You are one tough bitch, pull it together.”  It gave me a lift, so  I made a necklace engraved with the words One Tough Bitch. I wore it so no one could see the words. Yet it reminded me to stay positive and gave me something to reach for when I was scared.

Three years later, as I approach the end of my treatments, still wearing the original necklace, I know how much it helped my journey. I hope our community of women,  who might not say the brand out loud – but still feel the reminder: “You can be as tough as you need to be”.



The most powerful shape, represents a mountain. One step at a time we can climb anything.

And the circle at the top symbolizes our head and mind, where our inner power lives. Wear it and know the power of you.

 You’re as tough as you need to be.
