Ep. 17: Season 2 is Wrapping Up a Little Early
Hi ladies and thanks for stopping by. This week’s episode is just a quick thank you to all of Season 2’s guests and an update on what’s going on. By the time this episode airs, I will be preparing or (may have already) given birth to my second child. Because of that, I had to cut the season short by a few episodes unfortunately. That was not something I was willing to do but the timing worked out that way.
So once I get myself to the other side of this “working mom of 2” thing, I will be back with new episodes, inspiration and interviews with ladies that will motivate you to go for your goals.
But in the meanwhile, find me on IG @browngirlworks.
Thanks for your support this season as always!

Great interview style
I love the way Sam interviews. She just has this really natural ability to get her guests to dive deep into their stories. I also love the fact that she discusses the pitfalls and the challenges of starting a business. Too often most of the stories out there focus just on the good stuff and paint an unrealistic picture. Sam and her guests are great at highlighting how truly challenging it is to start a business.
