We then hear from Alice Stephenson, founder of Stephenson Law. In our featured snippet, she describes how getting pregnant at 18 didn’t stop her career trajectory into the law. Listen to Alice’s original episode, ‘Entrepreneur, Lawyer, Investor’.
Following this, we highlight Katie Alexiou, a divorce consultant and co-founder of LEVEL. In her extract, she talks about the risks of overwork in marriage (a tough but important topic). Listen to Katie’s original episode, ‘Divorce Consultant and Entrepreneur’.
Our fourth snippet comes from Olga Mack, who Rob spoke to as part of the show’s Forbes Features Miniseries. Olga is the CEO of Parley Pro and a women’s advocate. Listen to Olgas’s original episode from the ‘Forbes Features Miniseries’.
