We know that when women support women, the world becomes a better place.  At B.I.G., our culture is one of support, safety, know, like and trust. Our women embrace this culture and genuinely & authentically want to build each other up and help each other succeed.  

We champion each other.

We ignite each other’s passions.

B.I.G. Pod Meetings - Our Cornerstone Offering

The world can be a difficult place.  

You deserve a safe haven to explore your thoughts and ideas.   You have a right to surround yourself with supportive women who are genuine champions for your success and happiness. 

At B.I.G. pod meetings, you will experience face-to-face support from a like-minded tribe of your peers. You will experience validation, authenticity and encouragement.

That’s because we embrace a culture that believes every woman has special gifts and talents and that the power of a community of women working together is an unstoppable force in making the world a better place.

What is a Pod Meeting Like?

Pod meetings are held monthly at more than 40 locations throughout the northeast.  As a member of B.I.G., you are given unlimited access to all pod meetings – any time, any place, with no geographic limits or extra fees – and you will always be warmly welcomed and supported as a valued part of our B.I.G “sisterhood.”

Why Pods?

Pods are vessels where seedlings grow.  At B.I.G., we encourage our members to not just grow, but thrive.  

Moreover, some of the most intelligent female creatures on the planet – including dolphins, whales and elephants –group together in “pods” to effectively circumvent life’s obstacles. We embrace the term “pod” to best represent the environments we offer to our women of B.I.G..

B.I.G. Financial Wellness & The B.I.G. Courage Awards

For many women, taking financial risks can be one of our biggest fears and one of the primary reasons why we do not pursue our life's dreams. It can rock our security.  That’s why when women muster the courage to face our financial fears and tackle our challenges and obstacles, it’s time to celebrate. Through courage, fitness and empowerment B.I.G. supports women on every stage of their journey. Watch a special video message from B.I.G. Founder & CEO Tara Gilvar below.
