Found my people.

I am obsessed. I don’t own my own business, but am right-hand woman to a smart creative Female entrepreneur and this podcast is insightful professional development with a side of WE GOT THIS. I appreciate knowing that we’re not alone in wanting to run an ethical business and do right by our employees. 🤛🏽

Never miss it

Thank you! I’m still catching up on this season. I fear having big FAANGs in my neck in the night (vampire tech), and started following these journalists on WNYC 5 years ago. Long live life insight!

I was a skeptic about blockchain from a woman’s, personal investor’s, and MBA’s perspective. Since the podcaster journalists have (almost) moved on from Civil and blockchain, I’ve struggled with work/career and family while following these podcasts. While I never attempted the 42 steps in Blockchain for Civil, my time listening here is not wasted.

Get to the point

A lot of patting themselves on the back for quitting their jobs and starting a business. Welcome to what the rest of us female business owners do every day without making a big deal about it. And then talking. About how amazing they are episode after episode after episode. It’s semi-unlistenable. Get ready to fast forward to get to any content.
