“I've had my fair share at elevator pitching and pitching my product in general, but having this opportunity as my first public speaking panel in front of a live audience was an amazing experience! So grateful for all you do for your Babe Crafted community. I know how much hard work must go into organizing these events. You are very appreciated!”

MEET OUR FOUNDING BABE
Gina Moccio is passionate about two things: sharing stories and building a strong brand identity online.
Also, iced coffee and cookies. And tattoos (she has nine). Oh, and her Labrador. Ok, fine, she’s passionate about lots of things.
But mostly? She’s passionate about encouraging you to follow your dreams.
Like most entrepreneurs, countless past lives led her to where she is today. From starting her own ‘zine interviewing musicians to hosting art and storytelling exhibits. From leading the marketing and events team at Creative Loafing, to starring in and coordinating The Vagina Monologues #truestory. From growing Instagram accounts by the thousands to selling out events and making headlines.
Today, she’s the founder and leader behind Babe Crafted. She started this membership because she saw a need in Tampa Bay for a business development club that a) helped women entrepreneurs build relationship with fellow women entrepreneurs, and b) gave women a platform to promote their business and try new things like video, without investing a ton of time and money figuring things out on their own.
Between hosting Pinterest-worthy Babe Crafted member events, coaching entrepreneurs on all-things digital branding, creating blog content, and editing video features, you’ll find Gina trying the newest local restaurant, sipping coffee in a cozy nook in Downtown Tampa, or at the Davis Island dog beach with her Labrador and boyfriend.
She hopes that one day soon, she’ll get to create one of her famous hand-drawn name tags for you and cheers with you in real life.
Welcome to Babe Crafted. Stay boss.
