For so many modern, driven women, life is about being more than one thing. We’re multidimensional—and so are our conversations. We carry multiple identities; we can be both mother and artist; both attorney and entrepreneur. Both clinician and CEO. Both humble and proud. Life for women like us is about both. About…all of the above. It’s about the “and”...

Presenting, ‘And She Spoke, our brand new show that peels back the different layers of entrepreneurship so we can dive into the messy, the chaotic, and the heartfelt stories and lessons that define the lives of the entrepreneurs we know.

You’ll hear from successful female entrepreneurs about how they’ve grown their businesses, how current events have affected, the role money, mindset, and philosophy play in shaping the kind of business you run.

Think of And She Spoke as an inner circle of successful women in business having honest conversations about how they got there, the road bumps in the way, and their big plans for the future.

We’re setting aside the tactics, and we’re stepping into our truth.

We hope you’ll join us.

    Healing is an Inside Job with Elizabeth Kendig

    Healing is an Inside Job with Elizabeth Kendig

    Healers can't fix us. Why? Because we're not broken! But they can remind us that we're whole – and that our path to healing comes from within. Healing is an inside job. (Hence the title of this podcast episode 😉 ).  *** Plagued by decades of depression and a stubborn autoimmune disease, today's guest embarked on a self-care bender — immersing herself in every holistic treatment and spiritual practice she could get her hands on!  From shamanic journeys to chakra balancing, silk cocoons to sound baths… what she found along the way was a whole lotta love and peace. Plus, she discovered that other people craved the same kind of time-honored wisdom from holistic practitioners but didn't know where to find them or who to trust. Soon, an online business idea flourished. On today's episode of "And She Spoke," we talk about virtual healing with Elizabeth Kendig.  She is a popular beauty blogger turned podcaster turned founder of Healers Wanted — a community and marketplace platform offering spiritual guidance through different modalities using trusted practitioners. We discuss some things that led her to this online business transformation: Transitioning from Top 20 Pinner on Pinterest into the wellness industry How her Healers podcast grew to over 700k downloads Paying attention to the signs on when to pivot  Spiritual and holistic practices enable us to connect with ourselves on a deeper level. And it's at our core where our innermost desires live...  They can lead us to new businesses, relationships, and profound happiness! Here’s a peek at what else we discuss: How starting over isn’t really ‘starting over’ Why she feels uneasy about selling something that she believes everyone needs Finding purpose beyond the beauty industry Shifting her identity in a big, public (and personal) way  The nitty-gritty about revenue share, pricing independent contractors, and the most popular modality on the site.

    How to Use Your Voice for Change with Erica Courdae

    How to Use Your Voice for Change with Erica Courdae

    It’s okay to be an imperfect ally when navigating difficult times.  Wanting to participate in an emotionally charged conversation is important, even if we’re afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing. The beauty of it is… we don’t have to get it right or be perfect. We have to see where we can do more, be better, and expand.  Everything we do in life requires practice and co-creation... we learn in tandem with others. It’s not about being perfect. It’s about taking action that aligns with your values and then seeing where you want to be different. When we keep the conversation moving forward, we can finally shift the narrative for the better. On today’s episode of “And She Spoke,” we tackle how to address anti-racism as individuals and entrepreneurs through Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion with DEI Coach and Consultant Erica Courdae. She bases her work on these premises: A shame & blame-free environment It’s not about being perfect  Taking care of the WHOLE human  Being better in a way that makes sense for you Imperfect allyship To truly evolve, we must show up because we want to do the work... not because we think we’re supposed to!  Infusing everything we do with DEI allows us to show up and support what matters to us – even if we aren’t always perfect. Every time we engage, we chip away at the barriers that hold us back.  Here’s a peek at what else we discuss: Tone-policing Values Reconnecting to what matters  Imperfect action Privilege  Resources: Erica Courdae - Website Pause on the Play - Podcast This week’s Joy:  Our joy is Conversation – the catalyst for everything and the cornerstone of hope. This week’s Hustle:  Our hustle is Voxer… because sometimes context can be lost in text. This free app gives you a way to communicate effortlessly through instant voice memos.

OMG omg omg. I came across your podcast on a random search (don’t even remember what for) and picked one to listen to that just sounded interesting and.. omg. It is so rare for me to come across anyone who says things so similar to the ideas and opinions swirling in my head since literally forever and evolving over the decades. I live in a deep red area of a reddish state, somewhere I swore I’d never live (with mom) unless I had to, and it’s only confirmed everything I ever thought about avoiding conservative ‘murka. I’m tired of being told I’m “wrong” or to grow up or that “life isn’t fair, get over it” by people who are so ingrained and indoctrinated and enmeshed in capitalism that they can’t see beyond what they’re told to believe - and feeling like I’m alone. What I always find interesting (and LOVED about this episode) is when people put names to things I *KNOW* are real, but am constantly told are not. Like how so many female. business course entrepreneurs look and act exactly the same, like “downloading oppression”, like the issues between business and capitalism “extracting from other people” “no concern from outcome” “robber baron” (that one I use all the time, just to get blank stares from people around me). The whole thing disgusts me and is so contrary to what I know is right and better, yet the constant input I get is that I’ll never be “successful” unless I x, y, z. Thank you! Will try to listen to some more episodes, but for this one...wow. Sharing everywhere.

LOVE this podcast. It (well, their original Soulful MBA podcast) is how I found Jeni and Sandy years ago, and I pinch myself every day to appreciate the reality that my dream is coming true and know that I’m working among such a compassionate and talented group of women. Thank you for all that you share with us, and all the beautiful ways you contribute to lift us up! 🙏🏽
