Reese Scott is a boxer, an artist, and an amazing, astounding woman. What she’s doing for the world of boxing, and for women all over New York City and the world, is nothing short of incredible.
After becoming frustrated with her 19-year career in print publishing, she left her corporate job and wondered, “What’s next?” Feeling angry about her life (and her weight of 220 pounds), she was walking down the street one day and saw a boxing gym. She walked in…and that’s when everything changed.
Deciding to train in a gym full of guys, Reese didn’t feel welcomed and didn’t feel like she belonged there. “But in a weird way, this was the only place I was happy,” she says.
She began to see the connection between what she experienced in the gym (not being heard or respected by the guys)—and what she had experienced in her childhood (not being seen or heard by her family). Standing up for herself in the gym caused her to find her voice…which became a metaphor for taking her power back from her family.
In this episode, Reese shares:
- How she discovered it’s her responsibility to stand up for herself—and how she’s teaching women to do the same
- The importance of being clear in your communication, and not worrying about how others respond to you
- How she opened up the only women’s boxing gym in New York City
- The challenges of owning a brick-and-mortar business, building it from the ground up, and doing everything yourself
- How she’s always been guided to do what feels right to her
Reese’s story is a great lesson on standing up to others and teaching them what you will, and won’t allow. Don’t miss this interview!
