She Knows the Way (previously Women on the Rise) is a show about deciding what’s next when doing what’s expected no longer feels right.
Through conversations with women at all stages of life and career, we explore when and how we forge our own path. What we compromise, whether we’re on a new path or an old one. And how we can rewire ourselves to stay awake to our dreams even when it means doing the unexpected. These conversations will soothe, delight, and guide you towards finding your own answer to the question “What’s next for me?”
If you’ve always followed the script and suddenly find yourself without one, this show is for you.
Hosted by Lara Dalch | Produced by Lara Dalch and Jennifer McCord

Carolyn Cesario and Julie Sullivan met during a time of deep uncertainty – and used their own inflection point (and delicious nut butter) to help other women up the ladder.
More than just talk
So many podcasts in this arena have a lot of conversation but somehow don’t say much. I feel differently about She Knows the Way. Here, the conversations are so much more actionable, and the thoughts linger in my head for days afterwards. Continuing to work through the topics as they apply to me.
Inspiring, touching, empowering
I learn something in every episode and I am moved to tears sometimes. I am inspired by every woman that Lara interviews. I want to sit down and have coffee with everyone she speaks with and with Laura herself. I’d give this podcast six stars if I could!
Just What We Need
Lara’s podcast is just what we need as busy, ambitious women with so many demands on our time. I love tuning in for doses of inspiration, learning, and tangible tips to implement into my days. Thank you Lara!
