Welcome Broads! Today’s guest is Danielle Watson! Danielle is a global provocateur, professional muse, choose your own adventurer, and the creator of The Purse Process®. As an anthropologist who doesn’t like digging in the dirt, Danielle was faced with either walking away from the field she loved, or rising to the challenge of uniting the seemingly irreconcilable.
In the process, she hatched something irresistible: The Purse Process®.
Danielle’s Purse Process® is a pioneering tool that applies tried and true principles of archeology in a fresh way, placing a decidedly modern and feminine spin on this dusty science. The Purse Process® is part of the unique tool kit Danielle uses as she guides women through restoring their core confidence, mentors them in achieving self-actualization, and teaches them how to turn their personal quirks into high-value professional assets. Danielle’s uncommon mix of enthusiasm, personal strength, femininity, and vulnerability has made this unlikely anthropologist a popular, pint-sized inspiration to women everywhere.

One day she saw a notice on the door that the studio was going out of business. For 2 days, she thought about the ways she could keep this workout method alive.

They decided to modernize the method and create a program that was completely new.
