Getting To Know Reese Evans from Yes Supply

Reese Evans is the founder of Yes Supply and a total powerhouse. She's the ultimate girl boss and we interviewed her in preparation for her appearance on March 15th at our #womenTALK event. 

Tell us about what you do.

I'm the founder of yes supply collective. We're a online platform that empowers + inspires females to create a life and business they love, and only take yes for an answer to create it!
We've been featured in NYLON Magazine, Flare magazine, the Globe and Mail and Elite Daily for supporting ambitious and driven women in creating their own yes.
There's so much working against us that can stop us from reaching our goals in life, even though we deserve it- Pay inequality, depictions of what 'ideal beauty' is bombarding us on TV and social media, self-doubt, and the pressure to fit in and be the same as everyone else.
I hope to empower as many women as possible to break the mould, recognize that they can create the life that they want regardless of their current situation, and practice self-love on their way to creating a fulfilling life.
We offer a members-only community, The Collective, that helps new entrepreneurs build the foundations of their new business, even if it's still a side-hustle, and grow their online presence and social media following.
We also offer one-on-one coaching for those who want more in-depth support on overcoming mindset blocks and building an brand, business and online community out of their passions.
Who (or what) inspires you to do what you do?
I'm inspired to do what I do to support women, and help them see that they are the creators of their own life.
Years ago, I was working in a job I hated, and I felt like I was in a complete rut. But when I really stopped to realize a few years ago what was holding me back from the life I wanted, I realized it was me.
Yes, I could have blamed lack of money, education, or support for not making it happen- but the biggest thing was my own self-doubt, keeping what I wanted to create a secret, and not reaching out for help where I needed it.
I want to help women relate to people who have created their dream life, and realize that there are obstacles that everyone has to face, but if you're determined, and you don't give up, you can create your own future.
I want to help women get rid of the self-doubt, fear, and negative self-talk that often holds us back. 
What’s your favourite part of the day?
My favorite part of the day is the morning. I have a pretty intense morning routine called "Good Morning Beautiful" found at yessupply.co/goodmorningbeautiful that helps me start the day with intention. I used to start my day on instagram and that made me start my day with feelings of lack, comparison, and not feeling good enough.
Good Morning Beautiful helps me start my day with focus on what I want to create, and a boost of positivity.
Every morning I wake up to a positive quote, a positive affirmation I say to myself to overcome negative self-talk and boost confidence, and a meditation, visualization or journalling exercise that helps me connect with myself.
It's helped me create the focus to continue to go after my goals and stay motivated. It's a big part of the routine that lead to yes supply being created while I was still side hustling.
It's helping hundreds of women around the world believe in themselves, stay motivated, and even helping them to overcome anxiety and depression.

What are the most played songs on your iTunes library?
I actually don't use itunes, I use Spotify but my most played music likely includes lots of Rihanna, Odesza,  a hint of spice girls and quite a lot of trap music.
