Meet the Founders

Launched in late 2017, the Naked and Unafraid Women's Empowerment Movement was birthed from the divine connection of two women -- Jamella Stroud and Allison Arnett -- who started out as entrepreneurial friends and grew into spiritual sisters. Their relationship has given them a space to be transparent enough to find healing of past wounds and grow on their journey towards wholeness together in which they want to share with women everywhere, whom they consider as sisters.

 

These sisters are women who are tired of just looking good on the outside and want to feel good on the inside, women who desperately want to stop the emotional bleeding, women who want to develop authentic and transparent relationships and experience real love. This also consists of professional, business women who show up daily but are suffering emotionally in silence and women who experience freedom in all parts of life -- spiritually, emotionally, professionally, financially and physically.

 

Jamella and Allison want their sisters to know they are not alone as ”we are one and we are here with you.” They want every woman to know that their story is powerful and releasing it will liberate them and bring freedom in all aspects of their life. The Naked and Unafraid Movement seeks to unleash this healing and uncover aspects of life that can thrive as a result.

Allison Arnett is the daughter to Deborah, a singer/ cultural dancer/ Carnival costume designer, and Franklin, a guitarist/ singer/ songwriter. Allison, herself, is a former professional singer and dancer with Trini ancestry who was born in Houston. Needless to say, she is the product of creative expressions -- an artsy ball of life who loves the beach, speaks in song lyrics, moves in rhythm, and sees the world in vivid color. Allison loves music and uses dance as her therapy. Her primary duty is to create so she is a self-taught designer with over 13 years of experience.  She even wrote her first poem at the age of 10.

With over 13 years experience as a web and graphic designer, Allison loves to help other female entrepreneurs visually bring their dreams and goals to life!  Her creative thinking combined with her tech savvy know-how place her visual branding services in high demand. Allison has also spent over 20 years working in the accounting industry in which she holds a degree.

As an educational speaker and coach, get ready for practical, no-fluff knowledge, and actionable steps.  She is passionate about designing beautiful brands for speakers, authors, and coaches to make their businesses more marketable and profitable.  

When Allison is not helping entrepreneurs build their brand, she takes her life lessons from divorce, raising three beautiful babies, and over 30 years of living as the first of six siblings to share what it means to love and accept yourself.

With all of her creative and professional endeavors, Allison still somehow balances being a mother to one little mad scientist, one free spirited trailblazer, and one little brave dancer.
