About Shedding the Bitch® and Bernadette Boas

To understand what Shedding the Bitch® is all about, you have to ask yourself, “Can I relate to this story?”.

For decades, I was consumed by feelings of insecurity, doubt, negativity, fear, fraud syndrome, and other self-sabotaging beliefs about my skills, talent, expertise, appearance, worth and more. Never being one to retreat inward, I spent years projecting those ugly emotions and self-beliefs onto other people; thereby earning the title, ‘bitch’.

It wasn’t until I lost my job, all of my friends, and the love for myself, did I realize something had to change. I had to shed myself of those ugly emotions which I soon realized were the real bitches in my life; fear, insecurity, and doubt.

I have since shared my journey into bitchood and transformation out in my first published book, Shedding the Corporate Bitch, Shifting from Bitch to Rich in Life and Business. I had no idea my story; focused mainly on the corporate tyrant I discovered I was, would help thousands of other women and men discover their own ‘shedding the bitch’ experience as they confronted illness such as Cancer, Diabetes, Anorexia, etc., hardship from losing a loved one, coming out of the closet, dealing with a divorce or a breakup, and, as one woman stated to me; dealing with similar corporate tyrant issues as an African American woman.

Can you relate?

From that discovery, the megabrand, Shedding the Bitch® was born.

Today, women and men around the globe engage, collaborate, and learn how to discover, confront and shed their own bitches of fear, insecurity, negativity, low self-esteem or self-worth, doubt, and more…. so they too can create and accelerate the RICHes in their career, business, and life that they deserve.

Join our social networks (Facebook, Twitter, website), workshops, radio show, YouTube channel, and more, to begin your shift from Bitch to RICH.

Sharon Noble, VP Global Human Resources at Huber Engineered Materials

“I invited Bernadette to speak to the Women in our Atlanta office. This was the first event geared for this group. She exceeded my expectations in motivating and engaging the group of women. Examples of the comments we received were; I would love to be with her just 5 minutes a day to keep me motivated, I’m re-energized, insightful, encouraging, I needed someone to push me to think about my personal and professional goals.  Bernadette made it real and was extremely humbling in telling her story. We had customer service reps attend as well as the Chief Legal Counsel to our corporation. Everyone benefited from our lively discussion.”

“I discovered Bernadette by chance through her profile on LinkedIn earlier this year. Following our first phone call, I was convinced that she would be the right business advisor for me. Not only does she have strong experiences in the corporate world, but she is also analytical, strategic and driven. She is able to quickly understand what I need to take my business to the next level and acts as a sounding board for my ideas and concerns. Her belief in my capabilities and persistence in ensuring I push through challenges motivates me to keep moving forward.”
