We are women, hear us roar — in numbers too big to ignore!

We’ve got this girl power anthem stuck in our head today (and likely will for days to come!) because International Women’s Day is just around the corner.

Now, if you ask us at team Plann, every day should be IWD. Because, that’s how often our female Plann’rs amaze us with the creative and empowering content they put out into the world. From the marketing mavens to the self-made moguls and the mommas too, you all inspire us daily.

We have so many incredible female Plann’rs that it’s nearly impossible to narrow it down to our favorites — which is why we’re committed to highlighting talent all year round. But, in case you’re looking to fill your feed with some positive female role models this IWD, here are some badass ladies to follow.

We couldn’t talk about inspiring female Plann’rs and not mention the original Plann’r — our founder and fearless leader Christy! Behind the success of Plann is Christy’s inspiring story of resourcefulness, resilience and perseverance. From starting Plann when she was barely able to stand up to working for free for developers to get her first app built, her journey is a great reminder of the importance of hard work. You can read more about Christy’s story here — and be sure to also follow her Instagram for snaps of her adorable cavoodle, Peach (oh yeah, and Christy’s photos, too!)
