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.• Facebook: www.facebook.com/veronique.l.porter/• Instagram Handle: @laniseworks• Linked In: www.linkedin.com/in/veroniqueporter/• Website: ampersand-workspace.comAbout the Host:Gina Ahtof is a concierge promotional marketer.

Season 2 Episode 9: Life is a Marathon
The Empowered Entrepreneur Season 2 Episode 9: Life is a MarathonIt's hard to be honest when you're marketing your business... Want help?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!

Season 2 Episode 5: Who Is Your Ideal Client?
The Empowered Entrepreneur Season 2 Episode 5: Who Is Your Ideal Client?It's hard to be honest when you're marketing your business... Want help?Figuring out who your ideal client is the MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do when talking about your marketing. Marketing strategist, Jenn Prochaska and I discuss all of the reasons why it’s important and how if you think you’re talking to everyone, you’re really talking to no one. We also talk about how isolating that information really does benefit the business owner because it allows you to focus on who YOU really want to work with. It’s the difference between being excited when you wake up every morning to go to work as opposed to dealing with a bunch of people who will drain your energy. We also began a very important discussion about diversity and inclusion.Message Strategist Jenn Prochaska (Pro HASS kah) wakes up every day determined to empower ambitious small businesses through memorable, differentiating and authentic brand messaging. Fueled by caffeine, she leverages her 25+ years of experience and insatiable curiosity as founder of The Write Difference. Website: thewritedifference.com Facebook: @thewritedifferenceInstagram: @thewritedifferenceLinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/jennprochaska/TikTok: @JennProchaskaLinks mentioned in the PodcastAbout the host...

We have much more in common than that, including having had serious mental health issues surrounding teaching. We both left teaching because of our struggles. This was such an important conversation to have because for a long time I hid my panic attacks and problems with anxiety.

She picked a career that interested her and when she got her “dream job” and she realized that it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be, she realized that she was looking for something more meaningful. I’ll have to admit that when Bree told me what she did, I was skeptical. Using your birth year, city you were born in and time of birth to assess the best marketing plans for you seemed pretty out there. I have an open mind and I wanted to learn, so I agreed to listen. It was incredible! We talk about so many things that she only knew because I gave her those pieces of info. This was a really interesting topic for me and I hope you’ll learn something too!Bree Kuryk is a 5/1 Splenic Projector, podcaster, certified human design & gene keys business coach, Certified Online Business Manager®, and beach lover.

Want help?If you’re looking for a fast and easy way to make money, entrepreneurship may not be the right thing for you. In this very honest conversation with Sara Ferrer, owner of Zoey Koko, we discuss many of the ups and downs of owning a business.

The Empowered Entrepreneur Episode 25: Health Insurance and the Small Business OwnerIt's hard to be honest when you're marketing your business... Want help?I have been wanting to make this podcast for a really long time. It’s been a really hard conversation for me to have because somehow there is shame wrapped up in it. That I don’t make enough money to cover my basic expenses, but that’s the point! Who starts off a business already profitable?? Entrepreneurs have to get creative with it. They have to get 1 or several other jobs or count on their spouse or partner. It is not designed for you to do it yourself. It’s crazy! Heather Payeur and I discuss so many aspects of health insurance and we give you resources to help you figure out how to navigate this confusing territory. I was extremely vulnerable in this conversation because I hope someone listening might be helped by hearing that they are not alone in this. https://www.pivotlyfe.com/Links mentioned in the Podcast:www.Healthcare.govAbout the host...

Want help?I was struggling with my mental health before this interview started. I almost canceled it, honestly because I didn’t think I was in a great headspace, but obviously I didn’t. Yelena Galperina and I had a wonderfully honest conversation about the amazing way that entrepreneurship changes you and some struggles associated with starting and running a business. It takes you out of your comfort zone and makes you test limits you weren’t sure you even had. It makes you experience amazing things and participate in things you could never imagine being a part of.Yelena Galperina is a social entrepreneur who is passionate about creating purposeful tools that empower people to learn, grow, and thrive.

Want help?Nikolai Blinow and I discuss many topics surrounding burnout including what it’s like to be an immigrant and what that work ethic looks like or being the child on an immigrant and learning that behavior.
