RANDY PATTERSON is the co-founder and CEO of ProDoula, a multi-million dollar startup focused on educating and empowering individuals in the birth and business spheres. As a philanthropist and activist, she has fought to legitimize and monetize what is traditionally thought of as "women's work" and frequently speaks to women's groups on this important subject. Her work has been featured in Slate, Swaay, Buzzfeed, Motto, Parade and The New York Times among others.
RANDY PATTERSON is a Matriarch in the most modern sense of the word. But what exactly does this mean? The standard definition of a Matriarch is the female head of a family or tribe, the founder or dominant member of a community. She is someone who commands respect, even reverence. To many, the traditional image of a matriarch is one of an old woman dressed in stark clothing, rarely breaking a smile or offering a kind word. However, nothing could be further from the truth. The modern Matriarch is vibrant, she's focused and determined in every aspect of her life. She is bold, confident, a woman of power. When she walks into a room, people immediately take notice. She approaches everything in her life with the same fierceness and passion. A Matriarch knows exactly what she wants, and she knows she has the power to make it happen. How does a woman become a Matriarch? Randy Patterson was not born a Matriarch. The modern Matriarch does not inherit her status; it is not a birthright handed down from one generation to the next. Randy pictured who and where she wanted to be and began her long journey—starting as a powerless, shattered girl to become an empowered, vivacious business woman, wife, and mother. She is a venerable, powerful woman who has achieved great personal and professional success. But it wasn't easy. The Matriarch Rules traces Randy's transformation from a girl with no self-esteem and no opinion on anything, to a passionate, empowered woman who controls her own destiny. In her story, you will learn about the period of Randy's life when she lived outside because she had no home to go to. How she used her meager resources to get on her feet and choose a new path. How she set small goals and worked every day to achieve them. How she treated every setback she encountered as an opportunity to come back stronger and harder. Through her incredible story of persistence of passion, Randy will help you develop the same life-altering mindset she used to radically change her life—to become a Matriarch.
ACHIEVE SUCCESS BY BECOMING THE CHANGE MAKER YOU WERE ALWAYS MEANT TO BE! You can tell she's in charge as soon as she enters the room. She has an air of authority, a boldness, a confidence in the way she walks, the way she communicates. She has her own unique style, a bold determination to succeed in everything she does. She is a leader, an entrepreneur, a mother, a partner, a wife. She is a Matriarch. Not the outdated picture of a stern old lady dressed in black. No, the modern Matriarch is vibrant, alive, passionate. She's purposeful and deliberate in her career, her home, her family. She does not second guess herself. She has learned to look at setbacks as motivation and missteps as opportunities. She has the tools to keep moving forward, always planning ahead. She knows where she wants to be and knows exactly what steps she'll need to take to get there. Simply put, she has her shit together. Author Randy Patterson is a Matriarch, but that hasn't always been the case. She had to work long and hard to change her life and become the person she always wanted to be. Randy's journey took her from an insecure and broken girl to an empowered CEO of a multi-million dollar start up.
