Carrie Murray started the Business Relationship Alliance (BRA) in 2015 as a way to bring women together for collaboration, not competition. Like a bra, Carrie’s vision is for the network to provide support and lift its members.

On this episode, Carrie talks about how she made the shift from a school she started for twice-exceptional students to starting the BRA community and how the collaboration works among her network.  

On August 23rd, Kathy and Samantha will be the featured guests at Carrie’s Cocktails and Conversation event where they will discuss their book, Badassery Style Community: A Step-by-Step Guide to Party Planning Your Way to an Ultra-Engaged Community.  Get your tickets at Cocktails and Conversation.

About Our Guest

Carrie Murray

Carrie Murray

As women we possess a unique power: We’re the primary decision-makers when it comes to our households and families. We control where the money goes, whose hands it will end up in, and how it will be invested later. So why is that the majority of us are doing the shopping, but less than half of us are actually running businesses?

Carrie started Business Relationship Alliance in 2015 to bring women business owners together. With a background in social work (working with victims of domestic violence), and a 14-year career in education, she has seen how important it is to empower women, for us to support each other, and conversely, what can happen when we don’t.

Before leaving education to start BRA, Carrie was the principal and founding teacher of a charter school whose educational theme was entrepreneurship. She loved every second of it. Carrie knew she wanted to continue working with entrepreneurs and supporting new businesses in my next venture. BRA was born when two of her passions came together in a major “a-ha!” moment: her love and experience with entrepreneurship, and her mission to empower women.
