The motivation to launch this show is rooted in my desire to inspire women and diverse leaders who are considering a path of entrepreneurship, solopreneurship, freelancing and leading in their current or future organizations – basically anyone who is looking to level-up in both their life and business. I believe it is extremely helpful and important for us to have examples of diverse leaders who have pursued these paths so we can learn from them and find inspiration to follow our own entrepreneurial dreams. This is near and dear to my heart as I spent most of my life pursuing a career path in finance that was outwardly considered successful, with progressive jumps up the ladder rung but inside, I was not fulfilled or happy. Then, four years ago that all changed when I decided to take a leap and launch my own business and I went from a corporate professional to an entrepreneur, business coach & mentor who is obsessed with learning about future trends and innovative & disruptive ideas. And I love hearing and sharing the stories of the people behind those ideas. I believe the future will be built by those who see opportunity where others see uncertainty. It will be built by individuals that don’t look like the traditional leaders of our past but by women and individuals from diverse backgrounds that see the world differently and who are driven to make it better for all. This podcast will feature these people – self-made leaders & entrepreneurs that defy odds and are motivated to build a better Futura.
