More than a business show, this is a story show... Let's listen to some of the women who make our world a better place and contribute to the greater good. Author and podcaster Tsh Oxenreider asks women—from all walks of life, who do all sorts of work—why they love what they do.
||CleanSTEM Girls' Advocate | No. 5||Saki Milton is the founder of a group called GEMS Camp—she turned her passion for math into a STEM-focused camp for girls, particularly girls living in urban neighborhoods. Her vision is to instill confidence in urban teen girls in five core areas–academics, career, creativity, leadership, and service– so that they’ll be successful in STEM studies and future careers. Saki's got a great story, because even though her program began and continues to flourish in the Dallas, Texas area, she now lives in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on the Persian Gulf, where she hopes to take what she started on a global scale and bring STEM camps for girls in the Middle East. She does fascinating, life-changing work to encourage young teen girls—especially vulnerable ones in urban environments—and encourages them in the joy, necessity, and know-how of STEM fields. Saki loves what she does.

||CleanResearcher & Writer | No. 4||Gretchen Rubin is a researcher and writer who’s become one of the most influential observers of happiness and human nature in our culture. She’s written many books, including her bestseller, The Happiness Project, and came up with a nifty, spot-on rubric for helping us understand how we uniquely approach the art of setting habits, which she then wrote about in a book called, The Four Tendencies. In this episode, Gretchen shares how she got into the work of research, because it wasn’t an obvious path. She started her career in law and was clerking for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor when she realized she actually wanted to be a writer. She loves what she does, and she has tons of ideas for her work that’ll keep her going for a long time.

||CleanSocial Entrepreneur | No. 3||Jessica Honegger the founder of Noonday Collection, a fashion company that designs and sells jewelry and accessories made by artisans across the globe. In this chat, Jessica shares why she started Noonday—because she never actually meant to create a business. She also talks about what it was like to found an ethical retail business when she never had any actual business or retail experience, and yet why she thinks Noonday has taken off like it has. It has a unique model that both empowers women artisans in developing countries and women with an entrepreneurial heart who’d love to partner with them.

||CleanBookshop Owner | No. 2||Annie B. Jones basically has my own dream job (besides being a writer): she owns an indie bookstore called The Bookshelf, in beautiful Thomasville, Georgia, not too far from Tallahassee, Florida. Annie shares what it was like to start off as a bookshop owner with zero business background, and the things she had to learn on the sales floor about managing a team, deciding what her community liked — and didn’t like — to read, and at the end of the day, how to keep the lights on doing something that she confesses is more work than she ever imagined, but wouldn’t trade for the world.

||CleanCity Commissioner | No. 1||You might know Sarah Stewart Holland as one half of the podcast Pantsuit Politics, but she's also a city commissioner of her small Kentucky town, Paducah, where she spends a lot of her workday making decisions that make where she lives a better place. She shares about the ins and outs of what it means to be a city commissioner in a small community. And she’s open and honest about the hurdles she jumped to become a young woman and mom who spins a lot of plates to use her passion for politics to serve her town.Sarah on Twitter & InstagramPantsuit Politics & The Nuanced LifeEmerge AmericaTsh on Twitter & InstagramWomen's Work on InstagramRaising Ms. PresidentLess Than Angels, by Barbara PymWhat She Ate, by Laura ShapiroThe Vegetarian, by Han KangA Man Called Ove, Fredrik BackmanA Gentleman in Moscow, by Amor Towles Thanks to sponsor Hello Fresh—get $30 your first week with promo code womenswork30!||1/25/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
