I'm Abby Lou Walker. CEO of Vivian Lou and author of Strap on a Pair. I love the color red; laugh a bit too loud; and believe that a great pair of shoes can change your perspective on everything. More about me.

I launched Vivian Lou with the mission of empowering women to wear the high heels 4x longer without pain so we can focus more on our dreams and less on our feet.

I wrote Strap on a Pair (my raw and humorous account of chance encounters that led me to launch Vivian Lou; trample internal demons; find joyful balance as a wife, mom, and entrepreneur; and ultimately, hit my stride with the help of numerous allies who showed up along the way) with the mission of inspiring others to take the first step – or the next step – toward finding their something more.

Ok, Abby, how does a full-time working mom of two go about launching an eventual multi-million dollar company?
(and by full-time working mom, I mean stay-at-home moms, full-time working dads, retired aunts, inspired cousins, young-at-heart grandfathers...pretty much everyone!)

I can't tell you the right way, but I can tell you my way. Join the Club, and I'll send you a timeline of what happened, when and how it happened, and a list all of my trusted resources.
