Have you ever watched and wondered how some women do it? How do they run their businesses, how do they juggle family and work life, how do they come up with incredible ideas, how do they manage to never miss an event or birthday, how do they get such publicity, how do they manage fast and large scale growth, how do they overcome tragic circumstances, how do they leave corporate life and start something new?
There are so many things that other women do and have achieved that have us scratching our heads wondering how it’s at all possible. So with this brand new podcast by the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network we hope to uncover the mysteries and help empower others through the honest stories of real women.
Hosted by SCBWN President Min Swan and SCBWN Advocacy and PR Chair Lizzie Henebery, the podcast aims to go behind the scenes with business women, getting deep on life and business, revealing secrets, triumphs and challenges, and helping listeners to believe that anything is possible.
We also invite you to nominate who you’d like to hear from in future episodes of the podcast - who has you wondering ‘How does she do it’? Nominate someone, whether it’s a fellow business woman, your neighbour or a celebrity - we believe everyone is inspiring in their own lives and has a fascinating story to share, so please let us know who we should approach for an upcoming episode.
