Ep 22: Life lessons from car spinning feat. Stacey-Lee May
The year 2020 has done tailspins on all of us. In ep. 22, we speak to Stacey-Lee May, who’s gotten her own back, by spinning circles on her own terms.
A professional motorsport athlete, car spinner and stunt driver, Stacey-Lee thrives while burning rubber, drifting and spinning doughnuts on a race track. This unusual “work environment” has taught her many lessons, like the importance of always staying grounded.
She shares candidly about how she stays focused working in a male-dominated industry, how she went from studying law to performing stunts, and how she’s had to overcome bullying both at school and professionally.
Ep 21: How to manage your time & schedule - feat. Evelyn Mabhunu
Have you ever looked at someone who seems to have it all together, successfully juggling many roles and thought to yourself, I wonder how she does it?
In episode 21, we feature a woman who knows the importance of managing your time for success. Evelyn Mabhunu is the manager of the educational trust for Umbono Capital, a wife and mom of four, who’s also found a way to pursue further studies, be a mentor to students, fundraise for a crisis response team, and serve in ministry at her church.
How does she do it all, without burning out? “Plan your time, or someone else will plan it for you,” says Evelyn.
Take a listen as she shares her advice on how to manage your time and prioritise your schedule.
Ep 20: Dealing with Disappointment - feat. Agnes Sibanda
We've all had that experience: not getting the job we applied for, being passed up for a promotion, not getting the pitch or tender, or being overlooked when we thought we were the ideal candidate. Disappointment is a bitter pill to swallow, especially when we’ve worked hard or feel suitably qualified.
In episode 20 Nevelia Moloi speaks to Agnes Sibanda, an entrepreneur and a youth talent catalyst. Agnes shares her lessons on overcoming disappointment and offers advice to young people as they navigate their way through the world of work.
Spoiler alert: Nevelia also gets candid about a Dear Jane letter she recently received from Google ...
Ep 19: How to manage change
A question on everyone’s minds during this Covid-19 pandemic has been, “how do I manage change?” This pandemic has brought with it an unprecedented amount of change for all of us, from school closures and social distancing, to business transitions and personal life changes.
In episode 19, Nevelia Moloi speaks to two women who have navigated their way through significant changes of their own. There’s Alyssa Conley, a track and field athlete who decided to sidestep her way off the athletics track and onto the rugby field. And Kim Foster Yardley, a South African psychologist now based in Toronto, Canada, who is a self-confessed queen of change.
We’ll hear from these women how they’ve navigated their way through changes in their own lives – and what they’ve learnt along the way. Think of this as your crash-course in change management.
Ep 18: Who do you want to be beyond lockdown?
When you wrote down your #2020goals we’re almost certain “Survive a pandemic” was not on your list! And yet that’s exactly where we find ourselves now. COVID-19 has changed our lives in irrevocable ways and we have all experienced life under some form of lockdown.
In episode 18 Nevelia Moloi asks the question: “Who do you want to be beyond lockdown?” And, according to her, we have 3 options. Take a listen and decide which option is for you.

Ep 17: It’s a men’s issue
What are men’s voices doing on a show for women who want to thrive at work? What they should have been doing a long time ago: taking a stand against toxic masculinity and doing their part to eradicate gender-based violence.
So say the collective voices on our show today.
Gender-based violence has so many facets and one episode is not adequate enough to cover it. But the men on this episode agree about one thing: it’s a men’s issue more than anything else.
In episode 17 of Hungry Woman at Work, Nevelia Moloi speaks to Jaco van Schalkwyk, founder of The Character Company, Beverly Gumede of Lawyers against Abuse, and a few other men who are saying “GBV stops with me”.
