EP217 Leading Full Out with Kelly Olexa of Fitfluential
Kelly Olexa used to call herself the most reluctant entrepreneur and leader until she found Jesus a few years back. Today, Kelly is the founder and CEO of Fitfluential, a global network of fitness fanatics and influencers who share their journey to fitness online through the different social media platforms.

Kelly joins me today to share how she built a seven-figure business and how she plans to make Fitfluential the next HGTV of the fitness industry. She also shares how you can set boundaries with your team, especially if there are family members involved, so you can step up effectively as a leader by unlearning your limiting beliefs and through the transformation and renewal of your way of thinking.


“You’re the boss. Trust your vision. Drive the ship.” – Kelly Olexa


Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Kelly’s new mission for Fitfluential and what made her decide to shift the business model
  • Challenges she encountered through her business transition
  • Phases that the Fitfluential team went through as they worked on the shift
  • Why she founded the company
  • Explaining “the reluctant entrepreneur” and “reluctant leader”
  • Defining Impostor Syndrome and how to recognize it
  • How she overcomes years of people-pleasing on a daily basis
  • Effects of fear, family conditioning, and limiting self-beliefs


Kelly’s Advice for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  • Stop worrying about making people like you and approve of you.
  • You are the sum total of the people you spend time with.
  • Pour into yourself every day and transform the way you think, but you’ve got to be the leader in changing the way you think.
  • Have more trust in yourself. Trust your gut.
