2016 Article Roundup: A Year of Bullish!


Looking back over 2016, we’re looking at some pretty great stuff to celebrate! (I mean, as far as Bullish goes. Not, you know … America.)

Our annual Bullish Conference saw 43 bullicorns converge and conquer in Palm Springs. From hot tub hanging out to power-packed conference sessions, BullCon16 in Palm Springs was all about supportive new friendships, real learning and mega-authenticity.

We’re maybe most excited about the launch of the Bullish Society. So many bullicorns are having powerful work — and life! — discussions, supporting each other, enjoying Jen’s weekly video series, getting advice from our monthly Experts-in-Residence, posting “Baller Ladybrags,” and generally kicking some glittery butt!

And finally, holiday shopping is going strong in The Bullish Shop! We have over 1,000 products and three people shipping orders nearly around the clock. Ladybiz!

Here is our annual roundup of all the year’s articles! 39 of them, to be exact.
