Inspiring and meaningful conversations

I really enjoy this podcast because it shares a diverse set of stories of women who have found a way to find/create space for the things that they are passionate and/or I inspired by.
It also shows that success or “making it” means different things to different women and that is rarely a linear journey.
Highly recommended!!

Endorse your creative passion!

She Made It is a journey and Elle brings you along .
She engages with interesting guests, yielding both inspiration and motivation, even when you’re not looking for it!
She asks insightful questions and truly listens to her guests. It is conversational, give and take, not preachy. Listen, learn and smile thru these uplifting interviews.

Hope

She made It is a podcast of inspirational stories of women’s journeys and how they got from A to B. This includes what motivated them, inspired them, and even what failures they had along the way. I have to say, though, that I absolutely loved episode 25. Elle encourages us to take heart and think about some things differently during this time of pandemic and quarantine so that at the end we can say, “I Made It” with a smile. Thanks, Elle!
