Work Like a Woman with Emily Cassel - Episode 015


Ladies! Do you feel like your brain, body and business aren’t in sync? The way we work was created by men and for men. However, as more ambitious women are moving up the ranks and starting their own companies, we haven’t really stopped to consider if the existing structure supports a woman and her unique needs.
