the story of aught

Aught Means Anything At All

Designed originally as a coworking space, Aught was a vision based on the necessity of community. That community has flourished, and so has our ability to serve women leading and building businesses. Aught understands the unique challenges that women in business face, and we believe that support from other women on the same journey, and a community that gets you and your pursuit of anything at all is paramount in enjoying the work you do.

With female-fostered support and guidance, you can get help staying on track and getting *ish done.

Societal norms and historic constructs do NOT have to dictate how the journey plays out, or what success looks like. You get to decide everything, in the ways that make sense to you, with a supportive community that will help you achieve and celebrate even the biggest of dreams.

And Anything At All? That’s just the beginning.

"I love my days at Aught when I can bounce ideas off other creative minds and
simply socialize with supportive, like-minded women"

Erika Biddix firmly believes that it’s never too late to discover your purpose, that women can do anything at all, and that the power of community can create magic.  

She's on a mission to change lives and local communities through female entrepreneurship with multiple businesses, including Aught, The Permission Slip Conference and Erika Biddix, Entrepreneurial Strategist. She helps women to redefine entrepreneurship, success and boundaries for themselves, their businesses and their families.  

Erika’s story is informed by community at its best, filled with women who showed her the power of collaboration over competition and mutual mentorship. She’s committed to sharing this message with future generations - that ALL women deserve seats at ALL the tables (and the opportunity to build them if that’s their thing!)

Erika lives in Knoxville, Tennessee with her three overly confident children and professor husband, and if awake, she’s likely aggressively helping someone pursue their dreams.  She'd like to support you in reaching yours - connect with her at and all the socials.

Anna Wiggins created, grew, and recently sold Loveliest Bridal, an intimate Knoxville wedding dress boutique. Prior to that venture, she worked in the finance department for East Tennessee Foundation.

In addition to serving as Aught's Operations Manager, she currently writes about her experiences as a wife, preschooler mom, former entrepreneur navigating career changes, and dementia caregiver under the publication Untethered Tangles.

She received a B.A. in Economics from The University of Georgia and a Master's of City and Regional Planning from Clemson University. She volunteers with Junior Achievement and is passionate about financial literacy at all ages.

When not working, you can find her spending time with her daughter and husband, usually seeking just about any excuse to be outside.
