Empowering Women Entrepreneurs: Lisa Riggs Shares Her Journey (#661)


A journey of highs and lows.

Filled with challenges and triumphs.

But for women?

It’s a different landscape.

A Story of Resilience

I remember meeting Jane in my company.

A budding entrepreneur.

Faced countless rejections.

Doubted by many because she was a woman.

Yet, she persisted.


She’s a CEO, employing over 100 people.

Her grit reminded me of our podcast guest, Lisa Riggs.
