A virtual society for business owners like you who want to connect with bold, resilient, abundant, value-driven and endurable leaders
Want to know the problem with traditional professional associations like BNI?
It’s rare to find people that you resonate deeply with, or meet people who are genuinely interested in you and your business.
In fact, nine times out of ten, you walk away from most networking events feeling like you’ve given way more than you’ve received.
If Jim Rohn was right and you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with, I’m guessing you’d want those people to be credible experts with skills that complement your own -- not just people hot to take the next referral and ride off into the sunset.
That’s where B.R.A.V.E. comes in...
B.R.A.V.E. is a pan-professional virtual society made up of founders, CEO’s and established leaders, who are bold, resilient, abundant, value-driven and endurable in everything they do.
You believe we rise by lifting others, and because of that, you will be just as invested in the success of other members as you are your own.
As a member of B.R.A.V.E., you’ll be a credible, high-achieving expert in your respective field, who loves nothing more than opening doors for others, connecting them with exciting opportunities, and building meaningful relationships with leaders all over the world.
In addition, you’ll have regular opportunities to promote your own projects and invite others to work with you, too.
The net result?
✔️ B.R.A.V.E. is a pan-professional virtual society with members based all over the English-speaking world -- unlike your in-person local meetups, you’ll find interesting people to connect with whenever you open your laptop.
✔️ B.R.A.V.E. is an army of credible experts with serious business acumen, all of whom are running established businesses. The depth of knowledge and experience at this table leads to rich, robust, and real dialogue about what it takes to run a business.
✔️ B.R.A.V.E. is all about the power of relationships, and I want to give every member advanced relationship building skills they need to both give to and receive from the community as effectively as possible. Put simply, I won’t just fill the “room” for you; I’ll teach you the mutually advantageous way to work it too.
✔️ B.R.A.V.E. has a fearless leader who shows up no matter what. Through my candid, behind-the-scenes, personal bi-monthly reviews, I model the behaviors, habits, rituals, and honesty required to become a high performing bold leader.
With over 20 years experience, Tara Newman is a business and leadership coach who works with leaders in corporate, athletic and entrepreneurial environments.
Tara believes today’s leaders are an endangered species on a collision course towards burnout and extinction. Through her coaching programs, in-person mastermind days and retreats, she shows visionary leaders how to win consistently and sustainably so they can make an impact and create a lasting legacy.
Central to Tara’s work is the notion of high achievement vs. high performance. High achievement is characterized by unhealthy striving, incessant outputting and over-earning at the expense of a leader’s physical and emotional health. By contrast, she sees high performance as the pursuit of personal and professional mastery.
By helping leaders establish the behaviors, habits and rituals aligned with their own vision of success, Tara enables people to lead and thrive, without sacrificing their health or relationships, or compromising their personal integrity in the process.
✔️ Bi-monthly CEO Debriefs facilitated by Tara where you can get advice and guidance on any business issue you may be facing.
✔️ Monthly panel discussions on relevant and timely leadership topics as well as a curated training program developed by the founding members of B.R.A.V.E.
✔️ Access to a virtual community of founders, CEOs and established leaders for advice, connection, inspiration, collaboration, and friendship. Mainline the collective courage and support of the group whenever you need it most.
✔️ High-quality referrals for credible, reliable, professional service providers who can help you grow your business.
✔️ Regular opportunities to share your projects and invite other members of The B.R.A.V.E. Society into ways to work with you.
The investment to join The B.R.A.V.E. Society is just $250 per month. Alternatively, you can save $500 when you make an annual investment of $2500. These are recurring charges, and you can cancel at anytime.

Praise for The BRAVE Society
"Due to BRAVE, I’ve never felt this much like myself and inspired to expand far beyond what I once thought possible. I’ve never trusted myself as fully as I do since I’ve aligned with Tara’s message, shared space with the divinely curated leaders online and in person.
Tara leads boldly by example and challenges us to great transformation. In BRAVE, we have real conversations, true authenticity and genuine support.
I whole-heartedly feel I could never outgrow this group. When we all honor each other's paths and continue to be brave and bold in our leadership and development, we do walk shoulder to shoulder regardless of our current stage.
Tara will forever be loving known as the catalyst during the chapter of my life where I become who I’ve always meant to be and more."
- Jillian Dudek - Brand Strategist
"I'm so glad I joined this community as I've found women here that are an inspiration, teachers and examples to me. Showing me what is possible in my own life and business. A community of women that I don't think I could have found anywhere else."
- Gerdi Verwoert - Mountain Hiking Guide
"You are called to be open and expand and bring your willing compadres with you. #noleaderleftbehind. This is a place of sharing and support in the literal sense as well. We support and share so we can all be compensated for what we do. This isn’t fluff. We have high standards and we all push each other to reach and go beyond them."
- Erica Courdae - Writer and Life Coach
“What really sold me on becoming a member was the CEO Debrief. Tara Newman your leadership has encouraged me to start journaling and reflecting more on my business which is helping me as I begin to plan Q2."
- Dr. Michelle Mazur - Brand Messaging Stratagist
"I also love that this a non-whining zone ;) Can people seek support, ask for help, look for resources? Absolutely! But, this is not the place for tantrums or helplessness. Every #ask is from an empowered place."
- Agnes Wainman - Clinical Psychologist
The value from being in the room for regular CEO Debriefs and the impact that I have had in starting to put that weekly look at my own business and behaviors has been invaluable. By far the most amazing piece has certainly been the access to this incredible group of women. This group lets me take a short cut to finding quality clients, and quality hires vs spending hours on calls with people who are not at all a fit. And that quality has only grown as the group has grown. This community is a non-negotiable for me. It’s a must have.

Who is The B.R.A.V.E. Society for?
The B.R.A.V.E. Society is for founders, CEO’s and established leaders who are credible high-achieving experts in their own respective fields. B.R.A.V.E. members embody the values bold, resilient, abundant, value-driven, and endurable in their daily lives and interactions with others.
Where does all the action go down?
The B.R.A.V.E. Society has its own private Facebook community which you’ll get access to as soon as you become a member. This is where you’ll connect with other members for advice, connection, inspiration, collaboration and friendship.
Twice a month I’ll be hosting my bi-monthly CEO debriefs via Zoom, along with monthly panel discussions.
How involved do I need to be?
B.R.A.V.E. isn’t a society that you can just join and forget about, and it’s definitely not a place for members to show up and pitch day in, day out either.
As a collective, we expect all members to live by the following maxim: Listen. Love. Lead. Leverage. That means you show up regularly and consistently in the group to show support, give feedback, share your expertise and harness the collective energy of the group. When you’ve built a solid foundation with your peers, you’ll be in a great position to leverage the group further by making invitations to work with you.
Why do I need to apply?
There are plenty of professional societies that care more about collecting subscriptions rather than the experience they provide their members, but B.R.A.V.E. isn’t one of them. It’s my mission to create a highly curated space of leaders who embody and perpetuate the values that existing members live by, and for that reason, B.R.A.V.E. will most likely never have open registration.
How do I get started?
The first step is to complete the application form that you’ll find right here.
If you’re ready to lean into the bold vision you hold for your business and want to do it surrounded by the collective courage and energy of other high performing leaders who will always have your back, consider this your invitation to claim a seat at our table.
Pull up a chair...
We’re waiting for you.
