The On Your Own (OYO) movement aims to create a generation of self-reliant Renaissance women.

Women who not only can rock a killer cocktail dress, but also have no qualms about changing a flat tire. Women who can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and also trouble-shoot the circuit breaker panel if the stove conks out. Women who can cope with a flood of emails and an actual house-swamping flood with equal aplomb.

Women are amazing creatures. But as a group, an ever-increasing number of us are suffering from an epidemic of Learned Helplessness. Let’s fix that, shall we? Let’s prepare for life’s big and small calamities while maximizing our enjoyment of the now. Let’s bring about the skills, confidence, and grit that define what it means to be a real woman: can-do, kick-ass, and awesome!
