Meet Ruth Ridgeway
Ruth Ridgeway is the creator of The Lifestyle Designers Club and an understander of what happens when your life gets turned upside down and inside out in an instant.
She’s the proud girlfriend to her guy who was involved in an accident that left him paralysed in 2014. She shares their stories of life, love, hope and strength and what it’s like to create a (different, but equally beautiful) ‘Plan B’ life on her blog.
Through her work, stories and online club she’s helped hundreds of women to design businesses they love that allow them the freedom, security, and flexibility to do what they want, when they want, and from anywhere in the world they want through creating their own online courses, products and memberships.
