    EP96: Are you living a lie? Let's try confidence instead.

    Are you living up to your fullest potential? Or are you living in a way that fits what someone else told you to be? 

    These are the questions we're diving into this week with Megan Hamilton, founder of UBU Skills.

    It's amazing how past narratives or what someone had told us a long time ago can stick with us and influence the way we see ourselves, the way we behave and our overall confidence. Megan explains how to overcome these lies and be your most confident self.

    EP95: Nervous about public speaking? You're not alone.

    Some people are natural orators and thrive in front of groups of people. Other people absolutely dread public speaking. But the skills that come with being an effective speaker can help you build your overall confidence in life, and they're skills that each person can learn.

    That doesn't mean it's easy. Katie and Tracy are sharing their experiences with public speaking and the fears and butterflies they get when they're going into a presentation.

    EP94: Speaking out against sexual assault at work. A real woman's story.

    Kaitlyn Carlson is the founder and CEO of Theory Planning Partners.

    She is helping women get to the top of their financial game by using her business knowledge and financial wit to propel women to be just as powerful as their male counterparts. However, her business started from a place of pain and a desire to overcome it.

    She entered the financial world as a young woman at a large financial firm. She was sexually assaulted by a male senior financial planner. She decided to speak up which prompted other women to come forward and tell their stories too.

    Now, years later, she is sharing with the world what happened to her and helping women not only learn to speak up, but also to take control of their power and know their worth.

    To reach out to Kaitlyn and learn more of her story or to receive financial planning help, visit theoryplanning.com.

    EP93: Women are warriors and victims in a world of sexual assault

    There's power in numbers and we've seen that in action as more women come forward with stories of sexual harassment and assault in the workplace. 

    Katie and Tracy are previewing next week's episode of Sole Source where we speak with a woman who is sharing her story of sexual assault at work and helping to show other women the importance of taking back your power and not living in fear.

    Katie and Tracy discuss how women are often the victims of sexual harassment but then have to turn around and be their own advocate, their own warrior, to make it stop.

    This week's episode is for every woman who has ever felt unhappy with her life and wanted to just say "f**k it all" and walk away. Because let's be honest, we all want to do that sometimes.

    EP91: Katie and Tracy discuss what 'having it all' looks like

    EP91: Katie and Tracy discuss what 'having it all' looks like

    Have you ever wanted to just throw your hands up and say "F" it to everything?

    As women, we have expectations to be the perfect mother and wife with a clean house and homemade meals. Oh but don't forget about that successful career and make sure you stay in shape. Are these things you want or are you ignoring what makes you happy to please everyone else? If it's the latter, it can lead you to throw your hands up and have an "F it all" moment.

    Katie and Tracy have both experienced this to some degree and they're sharing their insights with us ahead of next week's episode which will dive deeper into this concept with Katie and Kacie from "It All Media."

Perfect podcast for ambitious women!

Raquel is such a delightful host! She brings forward the must listen to topics and guests that help female entrepreneurs live their best life. I was recently a guest on Sole Source and was so impressed with Raquel’s knowledge, level of preparation and enthusiasm. Our conversation felt like I was catching up with an old friend...we never skipped a beat! Raquel’s energy level is infectious, making it difficult NOT to take action on the wisdom shared with her audience. This is a must have podcast in our self development toolbox!

Wow

I am so happy I discovered this lovely podcast. I like how it started at the start of the pandemic and is still here a year later. I've been spending more time at home and this is such a great listen. Give it a try from serious to fun topics you will find something for you! ❤️

Very thoughtful in the state of the world

I listened to the newest episode on trauma. Knowing I have my own trauma that I’m dealing with I was curious what this conversation would be about. I listened to it twice, from the perspective of helping myself and then helping others or my family. I’m glad I watched this and it is a great step on understanding something so complex and unique to everyone. I will definitely stop and breath for the 60-90 seconds recommended. It’s such a great resource and unique source to think a company would consider this and apply it in the work place. Makes me happy that this is something that people can have support on at work, as you spend soo much time there.
