    Team Work, Team Success: Sarah Shadonix of Scout & Cellar

    Team Work, Team Success: Sarah Shadonix of Scout & Cellar

    When Sarah Shadonix decided to leave the world of law and pursue her passion for wine, she didn’t think it would come with daily headaches. In studying to become a sommelier, the nightly tastings were leaving her regretful the next morning, even when she limited her consumption. Curious to figure out why, Sarah commenced an exhaustive research of the wine making process from start to finish.

    What she found was that the vast majority of wines are cultivated and treated with a staggering number of pesticides, herbicides and insecticides, in addition to a number of other chemicals and added sugars. Unfortunately none of this is required to be disclosed to consumers.

    Hopeful to continue her career in wine, Sarah made it her mission to create a company founded in “clean crafted” products. Scout & Cellar is now approaching its third birthday. Founded on such tenets as authenticity, transparency and teamwork, the company has gone from one employee and $2 million in first year sales to a company of 100, with sales reaching $60 million last year. Now that’s a reason to celebrate!

    This is a Human Issue: Tovah Haim of Bodily

    This is a Human Issue: Tovah Haim of Bodily

    Before you become pregnant and give birth, you may think you have a pretty good idea of the whole process. It may come as a shock, then, when all sorts of things happen to your body that no one ever mentioned. Why, in the 21st century, are we still left in the dark on so many aspects of one of the most commonly shared experiences in human history?

    Tovah Haim has made it her mission to change all that. When her own journey through pregnancy and birth was filled with surprises that were all considered normal, she decided it was unacceptable for women to continue to go through this process uninformed. In founding Bodily, she’s made it her mission not only to illuminate the hidden aspects of pregnancy, birth, and recovery, but to provide products that make the experience a holistic and supportive one.

    It’s the Time to Try: Michelle Cordeiro Grant of Lively

    It’s the Time to Try: Michelle Cordeiro Grant of Lively

    Back in January, Michelle Cordeiro Grant, CEO and founder of Lively (those cute bras you see on Instagram!), was consumed by ways to expand the brand’s brick and mortar presence. What seemed like a paramount concern quickly changed as the news of coronavirus set in.

    With shoppers now spending more time online looking for purchases, Michelle decided to embrace the challenge, rather than shy away from it. Taking inspiration from such well-known companies as Apple, Exxon and Disney, all of which started during “periods of correction,” Michelle shares her belief that this is actually a fertile time for business if it can work to meet the needs of consumers. As she says, “This is the time to try a lot [of different things] and break shit,” knowing that each experiment takes you one step closer to success.

    Innovative Impact: Discussing the Intersection of Business and Social Responsibility with Susan McPherson

    Innovative Impact: Discussing the Intersection of Business and Social Responsibility with Susan McPherson

    What does it take for a company to do well? Not financially, but in terms of its impact on employees, the community, and the environment? Susan McPherson of McPherson Strategies makes it her mission to help companies create social impact and increase corporate responsibility, with the adage that “business is a force for good, and sustainability is good for business.”

    After working in corporate America for most of her life, at the age of 48 Susan took the opportunity to start her own business. While it may have been scary at first, she soon realized the business she wanted to create utilized the very skills she had cultivated in working for others, but this time she could call it her own. Now in the process of getting her first book published, Susan is excited to share what she knows about forging meaningful connections by being of service to others.

    Be Your Own Boss: Taking the Reigns of Career Transition with Emilie Aries of Bossed Up

    In this episode of our COVID-specific series we are thrilled to have guest Emilie Aries, author, speaker and CEO/founder of Bossed Up. After experiencing extreme stress from a young age working on political campaigns in D.C., Emilie decided it was time to be her own boss, creating a new career that would fuel her fire rather than burn her out. Emilie now uses research, tactical and practical training to guide other women through their own career transitions.

    At the moment there may be a lot of people facing this very challenge, not as a choice but as a matter of necessity. Emilie uses her expertise to share tips on job search, the concept of a “bridge job,” and ways to finesse a résumé for better results. She also dives into the importance of psychological safety as modeled in leadership, and why now it’s more important than ever to embrace our shared vulnerability with open arms.

Inspiring and easy to listen

Hi Rebecca,
I really enjoy listening your podcasts. Every single episode captures my full attention so I can not listen to it while working! I am trying to catch up on all of your episodes while I am running or washing my dishes. I have always been very innovative and couldn’t sit in one place. Now, having a stable 7-4 job in Finance and 2 year old twins, I feel like I started forgetting about my ideas and my dreams and even about myself . Your podcast truly awakens that voice in me and I am getting inspired. Thank you for that ♥️

I’m in love with this podcast

A few weeks ago (mid-COVID) a good friend recommended this podcast to me when I asked her for something I should listen to, and truthfully I can’t say enough about how much I love it. I have been binge-listening to a past episode every single night wondering how I’ve been missing it until now! I feel like Rebecca and her selection of interviews with amazing females is changing my life - it’s smart, funny, inspiring, and motivating, all the while as fun as having a glass of wine with your best girlfriend and chatting about all the things we do and love and worry about and aspire to be. It makes it super easy to get behind a woman and a brand with this incredible social conscious…please keep this going and keep up the really valuable content you are presenting!
