Tammi Leader Fuller went from being an award-winning TV producer to following her passion at the young age of 53. Her experience at summer camp growing up stuck with her, so much so that she had always dreamed about starting an experience just like it, but for adults. That’s how Campowerment was born, and since its inception, she’s reached thousands of women with her message of support, inspiration and play. But then, just last year, tragedy hit when her business was devastated by the Malibu Fires.

OTB Podcast: Pat, Episode 2

Pat San Pedro was a busy four-time Emmy-award winning television producer whose life came to a screeching halt when she heard the news: you have breast cancer. It was the same disease that took her mom 20 years earlier. However, from the moment of diagnosis, Pat saw her cancer as an opportunity…something that was brought to her life for a reason. She documented her journey, which became an award-winning documentary, wrote a book The Cancer Dancer, and founded Positively Pat, a health and wellness community, along with global cancer support group for women called "Link of Hope Sistas.” She encourages audiences to live a positive and purposeful life with a connection to Spirit, so it can bring forth happiness, balance, harmony and fulfillment at work and in their personal lives.

OTB Podcast: Shelly, Episode 1

When Shelly Fisher was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, she fought it like a warrior. Quietly with strength. She let her closest friends know after she had surgery by writing them all an email. Eight years later, when Shelly was told she had a different cancer, she again kept it to herself. Why? Because she needed time to process the information alone. Working things out in her own mind even though she knew she had a great support system. One day when she felt down, an empowering mantra went through her head. So she went to a jeweler and had them make her a necklace with three words on it. One Tough Bitch. On this episode of the One Tough Bitch podcast, we talk to our founder Shelly Fisher, who has taken her own experience as a two-time cancer survivor and turned it into a lifestyle brand and online community movement to help other women access their own inner OTB. Links from our show: The necklace that inspired it all. Shelly’s book (along with co-author Jennifer Jones) Breaking Sad  The OTB Sisterhood Facebook Group
