THE POWER OF CREATIVE BUSINESS COLLABORATION
Women owned business creates Fearless Alliance linking fashion, health and community.
Fearlessly Deliver, a business consulting firm that focuses on helping on-fire businesses to creatively grow, is innovatively collaborating with the formation of the Fearless Alliance. The Fearless Alliance is a collective of focused like-minded out of the box thinking professionals that are committed to dynamically grow their businesses together in four key categories; health and wellness, fashion, finance, and productivity. Inspired by a personal photoshoot that founder Michelle Micalizzi promised herself to complete before the end of her 50th year; the fashion team, and health and wellness teams are collaborating this fall to champion fashion, health, and community. Micalizzi, an edgy biker chic, hot yoga zealot and fitness fanatic believes that age is just a number. She defiantly exclaims from five inch heals that, “THIS is what 50 looks like!”
As a multifaceted business growth expert, Micalizzi has brought together a fashion team currently comprising of Tricee Thomas of the Tricee Thomas Style Agency; Clarisse Ringwald of Clarisse Color Creations; Pamela Griffiths of Salon Four8Zero; and Warren Chu of Planet Chu and Oscillation Station. Ringwald is excited to be “collaborating with other exciting Fearless professionals.” She adds, “The Fearless Alliance is a new approach in providing a fashion business solution commanding success!” Griffiths adds, “Collaboration is a beautiful thing. Helping each other be successful! This is how all aspects of life should be. Building each other up and supporting each other. It just works, and there’s great fulfillment in it.”
Micalizzi and Thomas have begun to collaborate on two high profile Phoenix projects with a potential
third event in Glendale. As a member of Fearless Alliance, Thomas has been invited to dress twelve female U.S. veterans for the first runway pass during Camo to Couture, presented by Country Cures & Honeywell on Saturday, November 3rd from 5 to 10PM at the Honeywell Hanger at 3301 E Air Ln, Phoenix, AZ. The second pass of the runway will feature twelve dress designs from various talented artists. Micalizzi has been invited, as an artist, to design Veteran Lisa’s dress with assistance from Thomas. Country Cures® is a 501(c)(3) charity that conducts transition training for female veterans. Using country music, this training staves off rising homelessness, domestic violence, and suicide among our SHEroes. Country Cures® was founded by nationally renowned educator, author, and media personality, Dr. Gilda Carole.
The Fitness Team lineup is currently comprised of Stacy Phillips an Independent Optavia Health Coach; Ashlea Fowler owner of Sumits Yoga Grayhawk; and Micalizzi who is also a certified health coach, personal trainer and registered yoga teacher. Micalizzi is currently interviewing gyms to add to the roster. Individuals looking to jump start their commitment to fitness can meet Micalizzi to go hiking, practice hot yoga, workout, or try something new. Additionally, Fearlessly Deliver will be hosting a quarterly social meet up where attendees can just relax and get to know one another better. Meet ups are free of charge and the schedule is available at meetup.com/fearlesslydeliver.
Secondly, Fearlessly Deliver’s, fifth Art of Fearlessly Doing Business series will focus on the fashion industry with the launch of the new Fearlessly in Fashion line at On Central, hosted at City Scape at 1 E Washington St., Phoenix, AZ on March, 16 2019 during ArtLink’s Art Detour in Phoenix. The Fearless Art Projects are collaborative social practice art engagements that connect art, business and community. Micalizzi uses her ability as a visual journalist and artist as a vehicle to educate, collaborate and strategically build relationships and brand. The Art of Fearlessly Doing Business project celebrates the fearless entrepreneurial spirit by highlighting unique and fearless business leaders.
In 2019 Micalizzi will be collaborating with Thomas to bring thirteen inspired pieces to life on in the three-dimensional of fashion as opposed to the two dimensions of a canvas. Some of the line will tastefully focus on cross-convertible designs that can be worn interchangeably as yoga/fitness attire, business casual, or biker apparel. Links to the muse’s fearless stories and paintings will be included on the label of each garment and can be found on FearlesslyDeliver.com/blog.
Former featured female entrepreneur muses for this project are listed below. Micalizzi will derive renewed inspiration for herself to create a three-dimensional version of the two-dimensional pieces already created for these fearless entrepreneurs in years past.
