Season Three: Money Mindset & Owning Our Worth
In Season Three of the Entreprenora Podcast, we delve deep into the mental blocks so many founders have around money, visibility, and owning our worth. Tune in to hear candid insights about how these founders overcame these internal hurdles and quieted the negative voices playing a loop in their heads so they could own their success, grow their wealth, and take their rightful place as visible role models for positive change.
Season Three, Episode Eight: with Jennifer Schneider, founder of The Loved Object Join me and the warm and wonderful Jennifer Schneider as we trace her journey from the world of high fashion to her heart-centered work with women who want to bring out their best selves and "wear what they are". Through her work, Jennifer has helped women project their inner, powerful selves, overcome challenges, be seen and heard, and redefine who they are. Whether we like it or not, the world still judges us on appearance, and Jennifer is helping women take back control of that perception. Join us for a thought-provoking conversation about the power of conscious styling and individual projection.
Season Three, Episode Seven: with Sandhya Domah, founder of Shifting Paradigm After a very traditional "left brain" career in engineering, operations, and Venture Capital, Sandhya took the bold decision to leave it all behind without a Plan B in place. Instead she spent 18 months living off of her savings and following a more intuitive path of exploration and openness. Her journey led her to Human Design, which she now uses to coach founders to help them put "radical self awareness" at the forefront of building their businesses and craft a life that is 100% aligned to who they are and their unique design. Get ready to have your mind blown.
Season Three, Episode Six: with Paul Holbrook, founder of Diary Detox In this brilliantly insightful discussion with our "token man", Paul and I talk about one of the biggest challenges all of us face: making the best use of our time. After a long career in The City, Paul found himself leading large teams and formally and informally coaching busy executives who were in desperate need of "detoxing" their diaries and their work days. The process he created to reorganize the way we structure our days was the result of some deep conversations that overturned entrenched ways of doing things. Paul is now using the Diary Detox method he created to transform the way individuals and big companies work and play. Join us as we explore the age-old question of "what am I doing?" and arrive at some life-changing answers.
Season Three, Episode Five: with Kate Boyle, founder of Banjo Robinson After a brilliant career as a writer in Hollywood, Kate took her love of story-telling, letter-writing, and globe-trotting in a totally new direction. Leveraging her instincts and personal contacts, Kate shares how she slowly turned her passions into a fast-growth company that simply and beautifully combines ed-tech, personalization, and children's literature. Her humble honesty and bold vision for Banjo's future (merchandise and a TV show are already in the works!), are as stand-out as her quiet brilliance, and she will leave you with fresh ah-ha's and rules to live by that make being a founder and being alive feel as magical as Banjo Robinson itself.
Season Three, Episode Four: with Kate Hardcastle MBE, founder of Insight with Passion Join me in this wonderful conversation with "The Customer Whisperer", Kate Hardcastle MBE as we talk about her "mobile" career from her life as a professional backup singer for Martha Reeves to becoming the go-to expert for companies that want to fully understand their customers and create business relationships that last a lifetime. Her journey has shown her the power of collaboration, building bridges, and the humanity and humility required to be in business, especially in these challenging times. Tune in as we meld and blend our straight-talking "Yorker" (Yorkshire and New York meet!) insights with thoughts on paying it forward and being okay with things not being okay.
Season Three, Episode Three: with Alex Depledge MBE, founder of RESI Since deciding at a young age that she would do the opposite of what was expected, Alex Depledge has become a successful serial entrepreneur and advocate for change. Exiting from her first business after only three years, Alex got into the trenches again and started another now-multi-million-pound company to prove that she was more than a "one hit wonder" and to serve her broader mission of changing the way we work. Throughout the ups and downs, Alex has set out to prove - to herself and others - that women can have it all: a career, a family, and a life they love. Eschewing over used concepts like work-life balance, Alex shows us that balance isn't possible, but that meaning and impact are.
Season Three, Episode Two: with Jaina Shah, founder of Minimalist Skincare Jaina's journey from chemical engineer to skincare line founder is a story full of insights and valuable lessons for us all. Once she realized that there "had to be more to life than the 9-to-5", she deliberately charted a path that would first cover her financial bases, and then give her the breathing room to uncover her calling and launch a skincare line. Join me and Jaina as we talk about her upcoming launch and the labor of love that has become Minimialist Skincare. How exciting to be with her from the beginning!
Season Three, Episode One: with Arlan Hamilton, founder of Backstage Capital Join me and Arlan as we talk about the power of being underestimated and creating opportunities despite the odds. Arlan talks about the "blissful ignorance" that can give us the courage to go into rooms that might scare us, about changing the dire statistics in Venture Capital (more than 90% of all VC funding goes to white men founders), persisting through the three-and-a-half year wait to get her first investor, and reframing the dialogue around what others think of us. Her rare candor about being a change-maker in venture capital, dismantling internal hurdles, being self-full, and "writing your own headlines" makes this an interview you will want to listen to again and again.
