2: Chic CEO: Empowering Women Entrepreneurs
Stephanie Burns, founder of Chic CEO, created her business after identifying a constant need among women for the trusted resources to help launch their business. What started as a discussion in her living room soon turned into a national resource equipping women, and men, with the know-how to create a successful business.
This episode of the Positive Impact Podcast delves into Stephanie’s story, the role that female entrepreneurs play in creating an overall better work culture and why the feminist movement is a collaborative effort, not an excuse to pit the sexes against each other.
This episode references an episode with Leslie Fishlock of Geek Girls. That interview will debut as episode 10. While this episode aired in October of 2015, the initial interview was recorded in September of 2015. The company Stephanie referenced worth two billion was launched in September of 2014.
In this episode, Stephanie touched on the importance taking breaks to walk along the beach when she needed to focus or mull over challenges. And weren’t we all swooning when she told us how her now husband swept her off to Greece to propose!
