Sensing a significant media void, this Mother/Daughter duo emerged onto the media and publishing world stage January 2015 with the launch of Ready Publication.
We’ve been Ready ever since!
Ready to provoke!
Ready to promote people, products, and platforms!
Ready to tackle controversial topics!
Ready to peel away layers of complacency!
Ready to encourage international conversations!
Ready to ignite the senses and challenge the status quo!
Ready to blur the gender, racial, generational, social and economic lines!
Ready to positively impact individuals, families, communities, and the world!
Ready is a quarterly print and digital publication designed with the beautiful diversity of women around the world in mind. Ready is edgy… different… content-rich… positioned to create and to encourage passionate conversation about a host of topics around real life issues. Ready is challenging and courageous enough to expose hidden thoughts and to entertain closed-door conversations.
Ready will help influence women to move beyond the status quo and to transcend glass ceilings. Ready has created a platform for women and girls to share their voices. Ultimately our hope is mobilization on a grand scale by informing and inspiring women in areas of advocacy, philanthropy, volunteerism, community-building, business development, soul care, economic stewardship, race relations, and politics.
Ready is more than a magazine; we have a world-changing movement underway.
