Hey ladies! We are bringing back our Member Spotlight blog series, featuring our Members — influencers, entrepreneurs, bloggers, and bosses alike! Next up, Bri Hopkins, founder of Golden Bee By Bri.
Q: Tell us a little about you, girl!
A: Hello! My name is Bri and I moved to Charlotte back in Nov 2021. My fiance and I are big nature fans so we spend a lot of time on the hiking trails or camping near the water. I am also a visual artist and love spending a Sunday afternoon painting up a storm with a glass of wine and my favorite playlist.
Q: What inspired you to start your business, Golden Bee by Bri?
A: I realized there was a gap between how we, as women, were told to navigate the world and how to prioritize success vs. work with our energy and being guided by our intuition. I started consuming books, webinars, and going to conferences to learn as much as I could about the neuroscience of purpose, habit patterns, and human potential. Combine that with more intuitive practices such as attraction and mindfulness, I created my signature program (The Honey Club) to give women the tools and resources to create an environment that supports their energy. Once their external and internal energy is aligned, there is nothing a woman can’t accomplish!
Q: What’s one thing our readers should know about your Coaching services?
A: I want coaching to be realistic and attainable for anyone, so I created a monthly subscription program! That way, my honeybees are able to access hours of video training, podcasts, and have a community of other baddies who understand the journey of prioritizing their personal growth. Because community is a huge part of integrating real change. The Honey Club is a perfect option for the girlie on the go as these trainings are designed to be consumed while commuting to work, running errands, or alongside their morning coffee.
Q: Building your own business from the ground up is hard. What advice do you have for someone looking to start their own business?
A: Don’t quit. The hardest part is going to be consistently showing up when you are not seeing the results. But results take TIME. And when you are a high-achiever and used to seeing growth or results quickly, this can be extremely disheartening. However, if your brain hyper focuses on how things “are not going right” then you will attract more “proof” of how that is the case. So instead, focus on the ways that it IS working! Hold the energy that your dream is already a reality and keep showing up as such.
Q: You know Girl Gang is all about finding and spotlighting the coolest spots around town. What does your ideal weekend in Charlotte look like currently?
A: My favorite CLT mornings start with a trip to the regional Charlotte farmer’s market. There are so many incredible goods and great deals on plants (which I have way too many of!). It truly is a perfect spot to gather some girlfriends, grab some great food, and explore the four large buildings all filled with vendors selling a variety of exciting things.
Q: What are your biggest tips for women looking to become their best self?
A: Discern the difference between what you truly want to do and the priorities others try to project upon you. The more you can strengthen your connection to your intuition, to the whispers of your heart, the more grounded you will be and confident in navigating all the possibilities laid out before you.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about being a Girl Gang Member?
A: My favorite thing about being a Girl Gang Member is the ability to check out so many incredible places while meeting some super fun women. It is like having a super awesome girlfriend, who is a killer planner, and knows the coolest people to introduce you to. I couldn’t imagine a better way to make friends in a new city!
Q: What’s next for you and Golden Bee?
A: That is a great question! The next thing I have coming up for Golden Bee is my 21-day SPARK program. In SPARK, we work to reprogram your mind with new habits to attract your ideal life while also energetically supporting your transformation. It is a perfect opportunity for any baddie with the desire to improve their life and the courageous belief that they are capable of the change they crave.
There you have it, ladies.
