About Us

Crystal Thomas & Alexandra Chordas
Crystal Thomas and Alexandra Chordas, founders

The Extraordinary Businesswoman was founded by two successful businesswomen with a deep interest in personal and professional growth. Throughout our professional lives, we’ve been blown away by how much the inner work we do impacts our success—both in our businesses, and beyond.

We created the Extraordinary Businesswoman to share our knowledge and experience with other women as they, too, strive to be extraordinary.

This site is a place to meet with other like-minded women who recognize that the power to be an extraordinary businesswoman comes from within.

Whether you’re already in tune with that power, or still working to find it, our blog will provide ideas and tools to support you on your journey.

Crystal and Alexandra



On a global basis we actively and lovingly share the principle of “inner wealth creates outer wealth” for women in business.


Achieving higher level consciousness coupled with solid business practices to create infinite manifestation for women in business.
