                              the path isn’t always easy to navigate — and it’s difficult to be certain and confident along the way — so we created a step-by-step roadmap for your journey!

WE KNOW THAT...

                                many women believe that the corporate path is the only way to maintain our financial stability — meaning we have to give up on our dreams to prioritize our other goals in life. 

We believe passion and purpose can go hand-in-hand with financial stability, time-flexibility & location-freedom: whether you want to travel the world or simply work from home & be your own boss, it’s possible. 

THE PROBLEM IS...

We’re Cassie & Shay, best friends & co-founders of the Bucketlist Bombshells. We help women like you create a career full of passion and purpose, because showing up to work every day in the same cubicle to tackle a monotonous to-do list is enough to make some of us miserable...
