A MUST-LISTEN for queer folx in business!
This show is a shining beacon of light in the crowded space of business podcasts. It’s the only one I’ve found that centers the queer/trans experience, and I know plenty of people are hungry for this type of content (including myself)! Your host, Michelle Coyle, showcases fellow thriving queer business owners, shares insights, and facilitates important conversations on what it means to be queer and in business.
With her warm personality, exceptional conversational skills, and intelligent questions, Michelle guides the interviews with ease and both parties always impart so much wisdom. As a queer entrepreneur myself, I feel that I’ve finally found “my people.” I’m so grateful for the community this podcast creates, and the positive representation it provides.
If you’re a queer/trans person already in business, or even just biz-curious, look NO further than the Queer Hustle podcast with Michelle Coyle!
