The Entreprenora Podcast features whip-smart founders, creators, and change-makers sharing candidly about their experiences. Flood your brain with inspiration, ideas, motivation, top-tips (and sporadic doses of off-road nerdiness!). We've got some heavy-hitters, new-beginners, and everything in between. From founders who have grown businesses to near BILLION-dollar valuations to creators making waves on a local scale. The learnings are deep and the stories are real. Join us and become a part of the conversation.
In Season Four of the Entreprenora Podcast, we look at resilience in all its forms and how we can grow stronger through adversity, challenges, and - sometimes - hitting rock bottom. Tune in to hear candid insights about growth, struggle, adaptability and flexing muscles of inner-strength. The interviews will help you think bigger, lead better, and be bolder, no matter what comes your way.

Season Four, Episode Twelve: with Megan Vickers, Women's Health Physio and co-founder of Four Sides In this bold conversation, Megan and I talk about her recent book Stronger: The honest guide to healing and rebuilding after pregnancy and birth and the powerful work she is doing to normalize conversations around women's bodies and all the things we "suck up and deal with" (leaking, incontinence, pain) that are not normal and that we should not have to accept as a fact of life. Megan shares tools to take back control of our lives and our bodies through simple exercises that protect, stabilize, and rehabilitate, and her message of becoming stronger applies to non-parents as well. From menarche to menopause and beyond, the relationship we all have with our bodies' most intimate parts has a deep and real impact on our mental health, our professional performance, and our confidence.

Season Four, Episode Eleven: with Tessa Clarke, co-founder of Olio Growing up on a farm, Tessa developed a keen appreciation for the hard work that goes into food production and an aversion to waste in all its forms. After an impressive and international corporate career, she got "sick and tired of not being inspired" by herself, and started to tune into the problems she wanted to solve in the world. Her lightbulb moment came when she was moving between countries and was struggling to find anyone to give perfectly good food from her pantry to. A few "smuggled" boxes of non-perishables later, Olio was born. The platform now connects almost 4 million users who give away food and other household items to their neighbours (for free!), creating community and connection along the way. Join me and Tessa as we talk about how to "Fight waste. Help your neighbours. Save our planet. Feel amazing!"
