Opening Up in the Business World with Michelle Tenzyk

March 20, 2019

Susan Michel, CEO of Glen Eagle, sits down with Michelle Tenzyk, CEO and Founder of East Tenth Group, a People Strategy, Leadership and Executive Coaching Firm. Michelle worked her way up the corporate ladder to executive strategic HR positions. While doing so, though, she was diagnosed with a serious, debilitating illness, one that often carries a tremendous social stigma. In 2014, Michelle founded the movement, The Truth Behind Our Titles®: Strength, Resilience and Hope for the Professional Journey. It shifts the belief that professional success means hiding or disguising our inner struggles and difficulties. Tune in to hear Michelle candidly discuss her inspiring journey and share her theory that we should embrace all of our experiences—even difficult ones—to integrate ourselves fully and more authentically in our professional lives.

The Climb to Self-Love with Kara Richardson Whitely

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. By the time she finished college, she was 360 pounds and was even further weighed down by her low self-esteem.  Later, Kara set off on a quest to climb Mount Kilimanjaro despite her weight. 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

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

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?
