    Season 2 Episode 11: Gender, Race, and Inequality

    Season 2 Episode 11: Gender, Race, and Inequality

    I am really glad Veronique Porter and I finally had this conversation about race, biases, and inclusion that has been in the making for 4 months. We are busy ladies with busy schedules. We also discuss how to find experts in these areas to listen to when you want to know what’s really happening in the world as opposed to turning on the TV and listening to biased conversations. Hopefully, you get as much out of this as I did.


    About the Guest:
    Veronique (or V) is the Founder and Lead Educator at Ampersand Workspace. She teaches folks to recognize race and gender-based oppression and use their power, privilege, and influence to disrupt it within their lives, communities, and especially the workplace.

    Electra Govoni is truly one of my favorite people in addition to being my business coach. She is also the first repeat guest! In this podcast, we cover so many topics related to trusting your gut, paying attention to the signs that your body and mind are telling you to warn you about different things, and some tips and tricks to turn down the noise and focus on what you want to be focusing on.

    Carolina Martin is a kindred spirit. Her and I met over Zoom in a networking meeting, and we became fast friends. We have so much to discuss. We both love art and think it should be accessible to everyone, including our aging population. We also understand that bad things happen to people every day, and you have the choice to be positive. You have to choose this every day!
    Carolina Martin is an Art Teacher by profession; she was blessed to be raised by two practicing Artists. Her mom fought lung cancer for the last 6 years of her life. During the last 2 months of her life, she needed the care of a nursing home. During that time, she saw what was available (and what was missing) for people who loved to participate in hands-on, creative art activities. Upon my mother's passing, she vowed to carry on the legacy of her parents by 'delivering the creative process' through various art activities to people of all ages, abilities & disabilities. She began by teaching art classes at the nursing home that had cared for her mom. Word of mouth grew the area of her services quickly, and the rest, as they say, is history! It continues to be her pure joy to deliver guided online & in-person visual & culinary art experiences! Carolina Martin, Phone: 216-941-7643, carolina@thebomparties.com, https://www.thebomparties.com

    Christina Gravina, founder of BILT (Bridging Independent Living Together) is a rockstar! In this podcast, we talk about how to grow a business in a way where both the employees and the employer benefit. It’s so hard to strike a balance where that happens because there is a push-pull between providing excellence and having enough money to fund it. We also discuss boundaries with employees and clients and advocating for the best working conditions for everyone involved. This is such an important conversation for entrepreneurs, and I hope you learned something.

A Must-Listen for Small Businesses

Gina celebrates the small business by talking about everything —everything — that we face. From marketing to health insurance, from mental health to diversity, she discusses it all. I haven’t missed an episode since finding it. Highly recommend!

Inspirational and Authentic

I appreciate Gina’s insights into entrepreneurship. Great line up of guests! I get a refreshing and real view into the entrepreneurial journey. It’s not easy to be an entrepreneur. The stories shared on the Empowered Entrepreneur remind me that I am not alone. It’s nice to know that there are other entrepreneurs dealing with similar things. Highly recommend!
