It takes a true professional to agree to a photo shoot before 8am on a Saturday. And it takes a next-level lady boss to bring her A-game that early in the day.
Keita—a self-described professional butt-kicker and podcaster—did just that. We had a blast photographing this lady, and we love how she styled her perfect-fitting Maddie Skinny Cuff by JAG Jeans.
Keep reading to get to know Keita (@successbully), plus catch the new release of her podcast interview with our co-founder and CEO, Rian Buckley.
Keita is the Founder & Chief Strategist of Success Bully—an elite accountability practice for women with a champion’s mindset who need strategic support (a professional butt-kicking) to create momentum in their personal and professional lives.
Simply put, she’s a professional butt-kicker and podcaster.
Her Success Bully Podcast features tips and intimate interviews with female founders and leaders, including Fitcode’s very own Rian Buckley.
Fitcode in five words or less: Find Jeans That Fit
Impressions of Fitcode: It was seamless and easy! My least favorite shopping activity is the quest for jeans. As a tall plus-size lady with a #billiondollarbooty finding jeans that fit my curves and inseam is outright painful. I loved that with a few quick clicks I had a world of options.
How will Fitcode change how you shop for jeans? I will buy more jeans. Previous to my Fitcode experience I leaned heavily into stretchy slacks and A-line dresses, I feel like this opens up a new option for my personal style.
Favorite denim brands: I have fallen head over heels in love with JAG Jeans.
Personal style description: It ranges from Corporate Badass to #Boss Chic.
Style inspiration: Leather Moto Jacket: It’s classic and edgy—what I aspire to be.
Style tip: I spent years trying to hide my butt, [but] I have fallen in love with every part of myself. My #billiondollarbooty is now my second favorite body part (second to my ankles). I look for things that flatter my curves rather than hide them.
Professional ambitions: World domination. I will scale Success Bully into a global practice with a championship level client roster. My workshops and speaking engagements will extend beyond the greater Seattle area to a national platform. I will be the host of highly syndicated content (podcast and video) … and eventually a talk show. I say all of these things in the affirmative—as though they already exist. If I don’t believe it, no one else will.
Professional role models: My three angels—Adriane Brown, Roz Kelly, and Megan McNally
Work/office style: Corporate Badass
Work philosophy: Don’t make any excuses for yourself—get it done!
Professional accomplishment you’re most proud of: Success Bully
My friends say I’m joyful and contagious.
Bucket list: Meet Oprah. Go on a spiritual quest.
Favorite quote: “The day you stop learning is the day you die” – My Grandma Eleanor
Beauty/societal double standard you’d like to see done away with: Qualifiers: “You’re pretty for a fat girl.”
