Women’s Wealth: The Middle Way®
Starting Fresh and Giving Back with Wendy Selig-Prieb

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.

Professor Ann Mari May on Closing the Gender Gap in Economics

Professor Ann Mari May on Closing the Gender Gap in Economics

December 12, 2018

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Professor of Economics and Women’s and Gender Studies Ann Mari May sits down with Susan to discuss why women in economics are often discouraged by a lack of representation and how closing this gender gap could lead to changes in public policy. Why has there been such a strong push for women in science and technology fields recently but no equivalent push for women in economics, and how can we change that?

Kelli Tanghe and Team Ari: Pushing for Inclusion, One Race at a Time

Kelli Tanghe and Team Ari: Pushing for Inclusion, One Race at a Time

Kelli Tanghe and Team Ari: Pushing for Inclusion, One Race at a Time

Kelli Tanghe promised herself that when her daughter Arianna, who has cerebral palsy and is legally blind, took her first steps on her own after years of therapy, she’d lace up her sneakers and start to run. Little did she know the journey that would follow. When Ari entered middle school, she voiced her disappointment being left on the sidelines in gym class and desire to compete in sports just like her older brother and sister. In order to get Ari off the bench and into the action, in 2012, Kelli pushed her daughter in her wheelchair in a 5k race. Since, they’ve crossed over 60 finish lines together, including multiple marathons, all while raising awareness for the inclusion of physically challenged and assisted athletes. Kelli is able to push herself through the miles thanks to encouraging words from Ari, who feels like her “disability disappears” when she races with her mom. Tune in as Kelli discusses how, even with the obstacles, Arianna blesses her life and inspires her every day.

The Oldest Woman to Swim the English Channel on Retirement Adventuring

The Oldest Woman to Swim the English Channel on Retirement Adventuring

October 31, 2018

At the age of 46, Pat Gallant-Charette’s son decided to swim an open-water race in honor of Pat’s brother who had recently passed away from a heart attack at the age of only 34. When Pat commended his decision and commented that she wished she could do the same, he surprised her by responding, “Mom, you can if you try.” Those encouraging words started Pat’s journey of transition from a mom who cheered in the stands and was afraid of swimming in the ocean to a mom who competed in some of the world’s most famous and difficult open-water swims. Even as a caretaker to her young grandchildren and a working nurse, Pat proved to herself and others that she could accomplish whatever she set her mind to. At the age of 66, she became the oldest woman to swim the English Channel, and she’s still competing and adventuring, proving that age is truly just a number.

The Art of Trial and Error with Joy Fennell and Valerie Wray

The Art of Trial and Error with Joy Fennell and Valerie Wray

October 17, 2018

When friends Valerie and Joy decided to join forces for a creative passion project alongside their busy work schedules, they began a journey that may be familiar to any entrepreneur. From deciding they wanted to be self-funded instead of taking outside loans to the process of finding the perfect pop-up location, the building of their lifestyle brand, The 125 Collection, is the result of ongoing analysis and re-evaluation. Through the ups and downs and sacrifices that come out of financing your own business and building a recognized brand in New York City, Valerie and Joy have plenty to share when it comes to the trial and error process in the beginning stages of a business.
