184:  Ivy Gordon—Providing A Powerful Voice To The Sexually Abused

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 12, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear about the long-awaited healing power of telling your story

I met Ivy Gordon through my work as a speaker with Vistage International. But today’s podcast with her is less about her acumen as a business innovator or coach. Rather, she is on a mission to enable women to tell their stories about rape and abuse through her website, Unspoken Story. While she is a successful innovator and business leader, what she talks about here is the need to provide a voice for women who have been raped or assaulted—as she herself was, almost 50 years ago. It is this need to tell their story that is essential to free women from the chains that stay with them all through their lives. I was incredibly moved...you will be too. Please do listen in.

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 9, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to perform at your peak without making yourself sick!  

Marcey Rader changed her life and wants to help you do the same. During her 16 years in business, she always positioned herself as the go-to person to help staff become more efficient and productive. She ran 12 marathons, over 30 triathlons, and several endurance races. Always pushing, pushing, and pushing some more. And then she got sick, really sick. That’s when she learned that her life and her lifestyle were so closely connected that more of the same was not going to make it. So, she changed. Now she works with others, like you, to help you change your life as well. All of us deserve to be happy and enjoy our lives. Listen in and learn how!

182:  Lisa Caputo—Smashing The Myths Of What Women Can Accomplish

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 5, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear how women can build better businesses that thrive!  

I was hunting around for leading women in the financial services sector as I was writing my book about exceptional women smashing the myths of what women can and cannot do. Lisa Caputo’s name came up and having been an ex-Citibanker for many years, I was interested in what she had done there for women. Lisa's entire career has been amazing, and as a powerful role model, her story should be told. I wanted to share her story with others, both men and women, to celebrate how women can build better, together. In our podcast, she talks about her own personal growth and those who helped her on her journey. Listen in; I know you'll learn so much.

164: Susan Chodakewitz—Making It Big In A Man's World

Posted by Andrea Simon on Dec 18, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to lead and succeed, no matter your gender!

I had the pleasure of interviewing Susan Chodakewitz about her own personal journey through aviation management, aerospace and defense work. It is unusual to find women in these industries. Part of our discussion was about this very topic: how do we get more women into the defense, aerospace and aviation industries? And why have these important sectors not been places where women felt they belonged? These industries are so dominated by men that women have a difficult time breaking in and staying relevant. Susan, however, created a successful career and now shares with others how she did it and why they should as well. Listen and share!
