HPDL Women’s History Month
In honor of #womanshistorymonth we are honoring old and new trailblazers. Join us in giving them their well-deserved accolades. Born as Necole Kane in Cambridge, Maryland — this is the woman that we know as Necole Bitchie. Necole Kane, was the visionary and CEO behind Necolebitchie.com, one of the hottest urban gossip websites in the country. She is a great inspiration not only to women, but to us all. Her story is filled with sacrifice in exchange for the journey and adventure of discovering herself and her own destiny. •
Having to keep up with breaking celebrity news each and every day made for long hours, a lack of sleep, vacations that were never vacations. Necole states she wasn’t happy; she felt empty and unfulfilled. The emptiness came from a sense of guilt for having a career that was built off of reporting the dirt on innocent people. On July 2, 2015, said goodbye to the celebrity gossip blog NecoleBitchie.com. •
She then launched a women’s lifestyle platform that featured articles on beauty, relationships, travel, wellness, and career advice as well as encouraged women to share their personal essays and stories. It was important to Necole to create a safe space for young women of color on the Internet that was inspiring, empowering and motivating them to be their best selves.
She recently competed in a NPC bikini fitness competition and ended up bringing home two trophies. Currently, I spend my time traveling the world, speaking on panels, and journaling my experiences. I am also the proud CEO and Editor-In-Chief of the women lifestyle brand xoNecole.com, which encourages young women to share their personal stories, and it also features articles on career tips, self-care, relationship advice, beauty and travel. •
Necole is proof that purpose will find you. She made decisions to reset and evolve into the woman she was destined to be. She is authentically living as Necole Kane.
