Leader Requirements & Application



Become an Authorized Women in Podcasting Network Leader (WIPNL)

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in applying to be a Women in Podcasting Leader. These are mutually beneficial collaborative opportunities. Check out the benefits and responsibilities of each opportunity below and then submit your application. We look forward to connecting further.

10 years ago, I was feeling isolated as an entrepreneur and invited business owners in my area to join me for lunch. To my surprise, 50 business owners showed up, and I realized I’m not the only one seeking meaningful connection. That one meeting turned into a group, and that group turned into a thriving network. I planned and promoted over 500 events and ran that network for over 6 years. I then sold that network to one of my chapter leaders.

Now, I’ve built many successful communities and I help others do the same.

Today, my business is primarily online and I founded the Women in Podcasting Network.

I’m telling you the background so you know you’re in good hands. I have the experience and expertise to scale communities and train leaders. I’ve helped hundreds of people monetize their message and expand their businesses. My favorite part of business is aligning and collaborating with others. Let’s lift women’s voices together!
