Fierce Woman Feature – Tasha Copeland

December was a month of new connections.  One of the great joys of the holiday season and the return to holiday events in person is the chance to meet new people.  My first NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners) Chicago Holiday event did not disappoint in that regard!

Let me tell our first Fierce Woman of 2024 who I met there – Tasha Copeland – among other fantastically fierce women!  By day, Tasha is a professional working in Account Management for Upwork, but like many other fierce, passionate and ambitious women, she is also an entrepreneur.  

As soon as Tasha and I met, I knew she had the energy, curiosity and creativity to make a huge impact with her work. She’s also driving her business from a place of mission – commitment to helping women, as she helps set routines for self-care and self-discovery.  She packages it all up in a simple, yet highly curated, subscription package called the ElevateBox (  I am awed by the intention and creativity it takes to launch this business as a way for Tasha to advance her career objectives while also supporting the growth of others.  

Thank you, Tasha, for being a Fierce Woman and a model for our next generation of female leaders, business owners and changemakers!
