One of my favorite things about this episode is that it truly reinforces the importance of networking, accountability partners, and friends in your life who are there to support you, and challenge you. That is the heart and purpose behind the creation of the She-Suite Community, and I hope that this episode today encourages you to continue to grow and establish your tribe. 

Reach out to someone today who you haven’t supported in recently. Bring your coworker alongside with you the next time that they need help. 


Let’s wrap up with a direct quote from the episode: 

"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

Episode 1: Welcome To The She-Suite Community Podcast

She Suite Community Podcast Episode 1


I’m so excited to finally launch The She-Suite Community Podcast, and kick-off the journey of growing our community… connecting with listeners and guests… and inspiring YOU to build your own personal brands. 

If you’re tuning in and wondering what this podcast is going to be all about, and what I hope to give you throughout this podcast, then listen on. We are going to dig into how to brand your way to an unmistakable place, that defines your value, and allows you to leave a legacy. 

Everything that I’m about is giving, and elevating experiences. My intent is that this content will stick, and remain applicable – I would love to hear feedback from you along the way! 

  • 4:10: The purpose of this podcast.
  • 9:27: The why behind leaving my corporate career.
  • 12:50: When you know that there’s more… it’s time for you to finally go after that ‘one thing’.
  • 14:46: All about me, and the companies that I run.
  • 20:18: Why I’m a huge advocate of wellness and self-care, and how I pursue this. 
  • 26:00: My ultimate goal for Season 1 of The She-Suite Community Podcast
If we do this season right, we will be able to help and encourage every single listener to become clear on their ‘why’, as well as the path forward. 

It’s truly an honor to be with you, and I hope you’ll continue to join me on a biweekly basis as we dig into season 1. 

If we don't find a way to break out of the label, and create our own life story and legacy, we will leave this earth empty, and without fulfilling our purpose.
