About the episode
This week, in honor of Women's History Month, Owen sits down with Kristin Bonds and Mercedes Ballard of Heristic. We touch on what makes women uniquely qualified, prepared, and empowered to thrive in the start-up world.... the advantages of leaning into your perspective when it comes to growing your business.... and finally how to find and get involved in like-minded communities and the critical role they play in founder success. Next week, in part 2, we’ll dive a little more into Kristin’s story and learn how and why education, activism, and encouragement is so vital for women and other minority founders. You won’t want to miss that episode or this one.
