Read how Kasia's Leaders In Heels story began:
"I worked in Poland as a management accountant until 2008, when I decided to step out of my comfort zone and seek out new experiences that would stretch my career, and me as a person. So I left my life behind and moved to Australia.
In this new world, I encountered women from many different walks of life. I realized that some women succeeded in shaping their career and life, while other women didn’t. Intrigued, I started interviewing successful women in Australia to connect with them, learn from them and then share their experiences with other women. Leaders in Heels was born.
...My name is Kasia Gospos, and I'm the founder of Leaders in Heels. I design inspirational stationery to help women develop habits of successful leaders and to encourage them
to go after their dreams and make their mark on the world.
Leaders in Heels started as a blog where I interviewed inspiring women and created articles with an educational focus. I wanted to provide a forum where women can be inspired and empowered to take charge of their own lives, whether in the boardroom or outside of it.
In 2014 I ventured into creating stationery with the same purpose to help women grow as leaders by creating daily habits through products such as notebooks, journals and planners that they use every day.
I wanted to find a way to influence women's lives on a daily basis and help them create new habits. To create a new habit, you need to work on it for 60 to 90 days. I realized that stationery is something women use on a daily basis, so why not make it a tool to help them develop the habits of successful leaders?
I wanted to help women build confidence, develop leadership traits they could use in every aspect of their lives, and create fulfilling personal lives.
I wanted the stationery to share inspirational quotes, challenge them, and become part of their daily routine.
I based the first stationery line, Make Your Mark, around the Leaders in Heels manifesto, which promotes six key traits of successful leaders: passion, creativity, innovation, confidence, determination and kindness.
It makes me so happy to see our products being purchased by managers, coaches, parents, schools and universities, as well as being used as self-development tools and simply
inspiring kick-ass stationery.
We're a small team, but we've sold over 30,000 books!
It’s exciting to see the orders come in, and who or where they're being shipped to.
We have shipped to countries all over the world, and also to employees from companies like Google, BHP, American Express and many more.
I'd love to see more women in leadership positions, and doing what they love.
I hope that Leaders in Heels will be a positive platform for change.
Leaders in Heels has grown so much from the small blog I started six years ago, and it's all thanks to the support of our amazing online community of women that we're still here today.
My grand vision for Leaders in Heels is to grow it into an international brand that produces inspiring stationery. Eventually, I want to have brick-and-mortar stores all
over the world so I can reach even more girls and women."
