WHY ARE WE HERE?
I’ve had incredible transformations with various forms of personal development. As a self-proclaimed lifetime learner, I’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars on self-development over my 20+ year career — courses, coaches, classes, and books. You name it, I’ve done it. This is above and beyond my two degrees, and to be honest … some of the outcomes have been mediocre at best, leaving me wishing I hadn’t wasted my money or, more importantly, my time. While others have been highly enriching and proven to be worth the full investment — I’ve had particularly great success leveling up my personal life and business when I’ve been able to take a well-developed course or when I have worked directly with a coach.
After speaking with friends, family, and fellow entrepreneurs who regularly engaged in self-development, I noticed we didn’t have a reliable way to find vetted courses or coaches beyond our referral networks. Coupled with the fact that coaching in the United States is unregulated, I didn’t want my circle to waste time and resources on courses or coaching that would not produce our desired results.
— am·bi·tious /amˈbiSHəs/ adjective: having or showing a strong desire and determination to succeed.—
GET MATCHED, DO THE WORK, GET GREAT RESULTS
And just like that, I came up with the idea for Pretty Damn Ambitious (PDA). I saw a need in the market to match high-achieving women with the right personal development tools — through either a course or a coach that could help them ascend to even greater levels.
Why? Because statistics show that when women are empowered, educated, and accomplish their goals, so do their children, which positively affects communities regardless of socioeconomic status. The combination of empowered and educated women creates lasting positive benefits for multiple generations, helping families in a myriad of untold ways.
My goal for PDA is to create a service and community that matches the best women course creators and coaches with women who want to amplify and honor their ambitions through self-development. I want the community to offer a symbiotic support system with the coaches being inspired by our wonderful community and vice versa.
My mission is to help one million women pursue their dreams by honoring their ambitions by 2030.
Imagine the positive effect felt in homes and communities from this audacious mission — this is why we’re called Pretty Damn Ambitious.

BIANCA B. KING
Founder, Pretty Damn Ambitious
Hi, I’m Bianca B. King, wife, sister, aunt, friend, entrepreneur, philanthropist, start-up investor, and lover of all things that help my circle of influence reach their highest and greatest potential. Oh, and I’m also pretty damn ambitious.
Almost 14 years ago, I started my boutique marketing agency with $700 – yes, you read that right, $700 and a sh*t ton of ambition. I used my “start-up funds” to purchase a new laptop and a round trip plane ticket and quickly secured my first client. Since then, I have helped hundreds of small business owners and entrepreneurs bring their vision of success to reality by delivering results-driven marketing solutions. My clients have achieved a combined revenue of over $275 million and counting. My clients have been featured on television and online, including CNN, MSNBC, The Huffington Post, Thrive Global, The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Black Enterprise, and the Dallas Business Journal, to name a few.
PURPOSE DRIVEN AMBITION
GLOBAL AMBITION ACTIVATED – DECREASING THE INCOME GAP
To further the mission of helping one million women honor their highest ambitions, we will be donating a percentage of our annual profits to Kiva a 501(c)3 U.S. nonprofit, that is an online crowdfunding platform where women from 77 countries, including the U.S., can secure micro-loans to help them start or grow their businesses.
More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 in San Francisco, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive.
They do this by crowdfunding loans and unlocking capital for the underserved, improving the quality and cost of financial services, and addressing the underlying barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva’s work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care.
