Alexis Wolfer of The Beauty Bean
Blogger, writer, entrepreneur, TV personality and more, Alexis' objective is to spread the message of self-love and body positivity to women all over the world.
Wolfer used to believe that success was something bred from 9 to 5 hours in a corporate office, working in finance. She studied Economics at Wash U, and one day stumbled into an Introduction to Women's Studies class. What she gained from that was more than she ever could have imagined. She eventually went back to University and got her Master's in Human Studies at Colombia. Alexis also pursued a degree in Holistic Nutrition, which has helped her not only professionally but personally.
She also worked at a non-profit in Tanzania while trying to figure out her path and purpose. She also worked on Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, her expertise being expansive and unending.
Now 32, Alexis is living a life of success and purpose. Travelling around the world, sharing positivity and radiance to women internationally. She believes that, "The ultimate human right is the right to love yourself." She helps women deal with self-image and self-confidence issues.
Wolfer's advise to women that would like to pursue a similar path is to find your niche, be authentic, and stick to it. Alexis uses feminism and activism as a vehicle for self-expression and through that, is able to empower others to believe in themselves.
Alexis leads a nomadic lifestyle, travelling back and forth between LA and New York City. She plans on spending the next couple of months in New York, working on the mayoral campaign of her close friend Michael Basch. Amidst the travelling, she holds on to her bare necessities: her iPhone, her laptop, coffee, the Pocket app for saving articles, and Instagram.
An avid reader, Wolfer credits a few books for inspiring her in her career and in her every day life. Danielle Laporte's Fire Starter Sessions and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho are two books she claims were life changing.
This year, Alexis is working on a massive redesign for The Beauty Bean and many assorted projects making use of her many talents.
