  • Introducing Lady Startup Stories: Sally Hepworth Wrote A Book That Wasn't Good Enough
    Aug 5 2020

    Hey! We're just popping into your feed to share an awesome episode of Lady Startup Stories with you - the podcast where Mia Freedman interviews female founders about the highs and lows of running their own business.

    This episode features Sally Hepworth. Sally is an author, a mother, a wife, and the primary breadwinner for her family.

    From the outside, Sally’s business is successful. Amy Poehler has even optioned the rights to turn one of her books into a TV show. 

    But last year, Sally was told that the book she was writing wasn’t good enough, which meant she had no income for a year. 

    So she had to adapt and this is how she did it. 

    This episode of Lady Startup Stories is brought to you by GoDaddy. The place to go to get your business idea online.

  • Gloria Steinem Knows The Truth Will Piss You Off
    Jan 18 2020

    It was Gloria Steinem who said, “The truth will set you free… but first it will piss you off.”

    Now, 62 years since she wrote her first book, ‘The Thousand Indias’, Steinem has published a book of her most iconic quotes.

    “Without leaps of imagination” she once wrote, “or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.”

    And then there was, “Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry.”

    Now 85, Steinem is the author of eight books, and best known as one of the most effective and admired spokespeople of the American feminist movement. 

    So, what is she currently pissed off about? And has the world actually changed that much since feminism challenged everything?

    Remember, this is a Book Club, so we're assuming if you're listening you've read the book.  That means there will be spoilers, so if you haven't read it, grab a copy, get reading and join us after you've turned the last page.  We'll be right here waiting for you!
