Meet Cynthia Riggs, the Biz Diva


Mentoring Women in Business

Do you want a thriving business, one that will be profitable and sustainable? Are you ready to bring in the right support team? Cynthia Riggs, the Biz Diva, loves helping women like you reach your highest business potential. As a business development consultant and successful entrepreneur with 35-plus years of insight and experience to share, Cynthia has a proven reputation of navigating women past the million-dollar sales barrier.

She began her business career as a clothing retailer and soon became an activist for plus-size women. In 1984, she launched Making It Big, a catalog company of stylish, high-quality, American-made, natural fiber clothing for big and beautiful women. Within five years, her company hit the million-dollar mark.


Helping Women Step Into Their Own Power

Cynthia built a profitable business on the foundation of her values and helped launch a new, high-demand industry. Growing a multimillion-dollar enterprise felt terrific, but what mattered most to Cynthia was that she helped plus-size women feel good about themselves and become more visible in the world.

In 2004, she sold her profitable company. It was time to move forward and devote herself to a new passion: supporting smart, ambitious women to get clear about their business vision, stretch to their full potential, and create well-managed, prosperous enterprises. She committed herself to helping women step into their professional power.

With a BA in Psychology and her initial MBA from the school of hard knocks and her second from Sonoma State University, the Biz Diva is an accomplished businesswoman as well as a trained facilitator. Cynthia combines her can-do attitude and expert communication skills with practical expertise to align you with your goals for building a successful and sustainable business.
