I’ve been reminded more than ever in the past few months the power of women supporting women. There’s nothing else like it in this world.
In honour of International Women’s Day tomorrow, March 8th 2019, I put together this exceptionally special episode featuring 5 different women, from various places spread out across the globe, all with vastly different life history and experiences.
And yet - there’s a shared element and common threads that can be pulled together throughout all of the things you’re going to hear about today, because it’s really demonstrating how f*cking powerful women are when we actually support each other.
I cried multiple times putting together this episode, because the entire experience just felt so powerful, and having this podcast and this platform continues to amaze me. It’s a absolute gift that I’m able to share women like this with you, that I have this voice on my tiny corner of the Internet where I get to let other women tell their stories.
This episode is to remind you of the power of women, of friendship, and of how strong we are when we join hands with one another to lift each other up.
I want you to walk away from this episode inspired to do something else to lift up another woman, because even the smallest gesture could change someone’s life. You never know what someone is going through and how much it might mean to them.
I asked 5 women to answer the questions below, and the results are stunningly touching and beautiful.
This second question is a little tougher by design. I encouraged the ladies to do a little humble bragging here and I want you to do the same, because too often as women we are quiet about our successes, apologetic about our wins, and allow our kindness to go unseen. I really asked a lot of the ladies featured today to dig deep here and brag a little, even if it felt uncomfortable, because my hope is that it will encourage other women to do more things to support others in their own lives!
At the end of the episode I give my own answers to these questions as well.
I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did, and use this as a reason to celebrate women every day, not just on the one day a year dedicated to women internationally.

Please share this episode with another woman in your life who needs some inspiration and to listen to a beautiful message today.
