Sometimes it’s not about the marriage or the kids, or anyone else. Sometimes you go all out and are in it to win just for you. Fun fact, there are 114% more women entrepreneurs now than there were 20 years ago (source). In this episode two successful badass women entrepreneurs discuss purpose, life, taking pause from everything to reconnect with yourself and listening to your gut. A woman’s journey is never easy, but Camila Alves McConaughey opens up about the fulfillment, the rejection, the pain and the success she’s found along the way following her intuition. She and Lisa jump right in to get real, get vulnerable and get practical about what it takes to start successful businesses and balance marriage and kids.
