Last Orlando Lady Boss Podcast of 2017 coming at ya! I will be taking some much-needed time off the last few weeks of December to spend some time with my family and friends, and I hope you are able to do the same.
The Orlando Lady Boss blog and podcast started because of a desire I had to talk to women I could see myself in. There is a certain type of power to hear stories from women who are my neighbors, friends, community leaders, and businesswomen who could share how they are making an impact in their own communities. It inspired me to reach for more.
When I began the podcast at the beginning of this year, I had no idea where it would take me. However, as I began to interview amazing women who live right here in the Orlando community, I saw that there is so much that can be done right in your own community to make a difference.
In this episode, you’ll hear clips from 10 women I interviewed this year. It was so hard to choose which clips I wanted to share and from whom. So I don’t want to call this a “best of” review because there really are nuggets of inspiration sprinkled into every episode I recorded this year. I encourage you to listen back on the past episodes to find one you resonate with.
In this episode, you’ll hear clips from the following Orlando women I interviewed in 2017:
- Jenny De Witt from Townie Tourist
- Kaitlyn Cook who owns South Street & Co.
- Mara Shorr co-owner of Shorr Solutions
- Suneera Madhani owner and CEO of Fattmerchant
- Anna Eskamani- Senior Director of PR for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida
- Ida Eskamani – Chief of Staff to Representative Carlos Guillermo-Smith
- Kira Calvaresi- Poet
- Jeanette Johnson- Blogger of J’s Everyday Fashion
- Chonteau- A modern-day medicine woman
- Barbara Lezcano- Sweet Babs Sauce
Next, I want to give a huge shout out to KitLife Planners, our first sponsors on the podcast and an Orlando women-owned business. The planners over at KitLife are amazing, and I can’t wait to use mine in 2018!
I also want to give a giant shout to a friend and co-collaborator, Erica Jacobs from Pixadactyl, who has been such a great resource this past year. In fact, you can see her handy work in the Orlando Lady Boss logo, and over in the Orlando Lady Boss T-shirt store. Thank you, Erica, for everything you do!
Finally, I want to thank you, my listeners and readers. Everything I do is possible because of you!
