Podcast

If you’ve ever wanted to learn about entrepreneurship and empowerment as a woman in business without all the frills and the lies, this podcast was created for you. Michelle and JoyGenea take off the uncomfortable heels, the lipstick, the pantyhose, the bra with the underwire poking out, and they give it to you straight. Learn everything you need to know about taking your rightful place as a woman of power and importance from two women who have experienced the ups and the downs of being a woman in business. Find your voice and gain your footing in the business world as they recount both stories of horror and of triumph over their decades of experience.

Riding the Covid Wave

So many hats. So many competing needs. So many challenges with answers that don’t make everyone happy.  As small business owners, many of us are stuck in lose-lose situations. Our employees need, deserve, and want to stay safe, our customer and clients don’t want any changes to services, hours, or...

Time in a Crisis

Time is on your side. Except it doesn’t feel like it. We experience time in a variety of ways and one sign of being stressed and anxious is time feeling disjointed. Sound familiar? Yeah, us too.

When Change Isn’t Your Choice

More Than Just Business

We’re mad. We just don’t know what we’re mad at. But we can sure tell who we’re taking it out on. People making myopic social media comments, people with a lack of empathy, our husbands - all are in our crossfires this week. And all because we can’t get mad at a virus. Listen in as JoyGenea and...

Finding Your Equilibrium

Anxiety, concern, fear, grief - call it like you see it. We’re all mourning normal in one way or another. Those of us who own businesses are feeling all those things too. And we’re making decisions about our businesses every day. How do we know if we’re acting in the best interest of our...

Business Marches On

It’s not just that we’re inside and missing some vitamin D. It’s not just that we’re not getting to hug or touch or be in the same room as friends and extended family. It’s the unknown - the shifting timeframes and the loss of comforting routines. On March 28, JoyGenea and Michelle chatted, from...
