From Mother to Inventor with Krista Woods

May 29, 2019

Any mom of an athlete knows the battle with the never-ending odors coming from their children’s sports gear. After months of trial and error, research and planning, Krista Woods, mother of three, decided to take matters into her own hands. She invented GloveStix®, an award-winning and patented odor management system using all-natural ingredients. With no previous manufacturing or e-commerce experience, and after only 7 months in business, Krista entered a “Mom Inventor” contest on NBC’s TODAY Show where she pitched her invention. She took home the grand prize, which was a trip to QVC to sell her product live, and she sold out in less than 8 minutes. In 2017, Krista appeared on Shark Tank and negotiated a deal that would propel her to the next level. Tune in as Krista discusses overcoming the fear of leaving her stable job and lifestyle to take a leap into the unknown world of entrepreneurship all while raising her children.

It turns out that Snow White and Cinderella aren't as harmless as you thought they were.

The Climb to Self-Love with Kara Richardson Whitely

March 6, 2019

Kara’s habit of turning to food for comfort during difficult times throughout her childhood followed her into adulthood.

Only 45% of hikers make it to the summit, but Kara’s drive to prove to herself that she could accomplish whatever she set her mind to pushed her to the top. However, her path to healing her relationship with her past and with herself is an ongoing journey with its own peaks and valleys. Tune in to hear this inspiring mother, author and speaker share her story and wisdom.

Starting Fresh and Giving Back with Wendy Selig-Prieb

February 20, 2019

Wendy’s career path has been anything but linear. After graduating law school, she worked in law for only a year before taking a leap into working for Major League Baseball, where she climbed the ladder and became the only female CEO of a Major League team at the time with the Milwaukee Brewers. The Woman In Sports and Events Woman of the Year Award finalist then jumped to a very different scene: fashion. She began a business representing Worth New York and, as president of the company, found unique ways to give back to her community through her work, all while raising a family at the same time. In her current role, Wendy is a strategic advisor who works with companies looking to capitalize on new growth opportunities and drive large-scale transformation. Wendy’s professional and personal experiences have shaped her into a leader and she works to help others find their own inner leaders. From having the confidence to make bold career moves to giving back to her community to what she has learned from motherhood, Wendy’s insights are valuable to all women.

30 Minutes a Day to Save Your Life With Lilian Stielstra

30 Minutes a Day to Save Your Life With Lilian Stielstra

February 6, 2019

Lilian’s story may sound familiar to many of us: a mom of two, working a high-stress job, spending a lot of time in the car and on the go, putting her own health on the backburner. Overweight and with high blood pressure, she suffered from a stroke at the age of only 46. Lucky enough to survive with no lasting disabilities, Lilian began to take control over her health and walk for 30 minutes each morning, which slowly progressed to running miles a day. Although her transformation required slowing down at work, Lilian made the choice to change her priorities in order to save her life. Her message about the dangers of getting too caught up in life’s responsibilities resonates with women everywhere, as we often put others’ needs before our own.
