Meet the Founder of Wheat Penny Press Rebekah “Bex” Borucki
Here at #BlogHer, we are all about supporting female entrepreneurs — especially those who double as speakers! Rebekah “Bex” Borucki will be joining us at #BlogHer20 Parenting next week. She’ll be leading our attendees through a virtual, guided meditation to get us all in the right headspace to receive all the amazing, educational goodness we’ll be receiving throughout the day!
As far as I can tell, Bex is the physical embodiment of the phrase, “If you want something done right, do it yourself.” This was clear to me from the very start of our over-the-phone interview, when she explained that her PR team wasn’t quite sure what to do with her — “They told me to relax — I keep doing everything myself!”
Every hustler and entrepreneur can relate to that sentiment. And in Bex’s case, that sentiment has seriously paid off. Bex’s first children’s book, “Zara’s Big Messy Day (That Turned Out Okay)” is self-published by Bex’s self-owned publishing company, Wheat Penny Press. After facing many rejections and serious edits to Zara’s appearance and personality, Bex recognized that she’d have to brave the process on her own. But Bex didn’t stop there — now, she’s on a mission to get the book she needed as a little girl in to as many little hands as she possibly can. How? With a kick-ass kick-starter campaign.

NEW DAILY MEDITATIONS I’m recovered from a serious bout of food poisoning and ready to rejoin the world… just in time for a global pandemic! So my love offering to you is a series of daily live meditations. Nothing fancy—just inviting you into my practice. Join me daily at 11:11 eastern at Facebook.com/BexLife. Replays will be posted on YouTube and here on IGTV @BexLife 💕🧘🏽♀️
Bex’s non-profit charitable organization, the Wheat Penny Press Little Readers Big Change Initiative, has partnered with a national children’s yoga non-profit to deliver free books to elementary school students in districts that need a lot of extra love and attention. Their goal (for now) is to fill 100 classrooms with free books—- but I suspect Bex won’t stop until the whole world knows Zara’s name.
You can help Bex achieve her goal by donating to her campaign here. With everything going on in the world right now, I am positive that there are plenty of young minds out there in need with a book that accurately represents feeling anxious when you can’t quite name the feeling.
To hear from Rebekah and many, many other incredible ladies, join us online at #BlogHer20 Parenting on April 24th. In the meantime, be sure to follow us on everything — Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook – and why not subscribe to our newsletter while you’re at it?
