Kristy believes that every person can find a path to healing - it’s just a matter of trusting yourself and getting started. Kristy’s unique blending of Eastern and Western medicine, and advocacy for incorporating luxury into healing, offers her clients a comfortable, innovative treatment and the option to live a healthier, more environmentally conscious life.

The Unique Challenges of Female Entrepreneurs with Pat Schneider
The Unique Challenges of Female Entrepreneurs with Pat Schneider
Pat remembers the day she was sitting through yet another tedious HR arbitration case and had a realization - this never had to happen. This arbitration, the escalation to her office, the conflict between the two parties
 it was all unnecessary. It was preventative. Pat immediately contacted her boss and proposed an idea - what if they invested in to developing a unique leadership training that taught their employees how to resolve their own conflict? This would save her department tremendous time and resources and would empower every employee to be more effective communicators and negotiators. Her boss loved it. Flash forward to thirty years later, Pat has shared her management consulting expertise with organizations across the globe. Her company, Macro Consulting, specializes in strategy development and implementation, board governance and executive team building.  Pat has also served as a Board Member for widely respected Canadian organizations such as YMCA Canada, the Calgary Arts Authority, Mount Royal University and the Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island. Pat continues to develop innovative consulting methods to this day, and is determined to make a difference for her clients and her community, until “the day her phone stops ringing”. In this Episode The end of arbitration (2:15). And then I got fired (6:26). The unique challenges of female entrepreneurs (14:08). How to be an effective leader (20:31).

The Most Expensive Lesson with Linda Heeler!
The Most Expensive Lesson with Linda Heeler!
In today’s episode, I sit down with Linda Heeler. Linda is a Professional Certified Coach, owner of Live Inspired Life Coaching, and host of the Normal Lies podcast. Linda brings a unique set of skills and knowledge developed from her experience as a wife, mother, dental hygienist, animal lover, volunteer, and active member of her community. Linda lives south of Rochester, NY, is married, and has two amazing adult children, an equally impressive son-in-law, an adorable grandson, and two beloved fur babies. Linda works with women in a transition period, who are feeling stuck and unhappy even though it seems like they “have it all”. Linda shares how it is never too late to do what you want to do and is passionate about helping her clients rediscover themselves and who they are. Linda speaks from experience as she shares how at the beginning of her career, she spent a lot of money hiring sales coaches, and how it was simultaneously her worst mistake but the biggest lesson in business. The most expensive lesson she has learned is that coaches do not drive their own agenda. Real coaching is about your agenda, what you need, and helping you uncover that.  Cookie-cutter formulas for success don’t work. You need to be authentic, dive into who you are, and know your values. Join us as we talk about how finding a coach that you trust can make all the difference and why second opinions and interviewing other coaches should be encouraged! Linda is adamant that she doesn’t sell coaching, she has conversations. She lets everyone make their own choices because it’s really about the client and what is best for them. Her story is truly one of authenticity, integrity, and connection. I also join Linda on her podcast! You can find links to Linda's podcast, Normal Lies, at Normal-Lies.com.

Intentional Living with Kristi Mitchell
Welcome to the Female Founder Friday podcast, a collection of inspiring conversations with the most interesting female entrepreneurs and small business owners. I’m your host, Lindsay White and together with my incredible guests we’ll explore the struggles of being a female entrepreneur, the most important lessons, and the future of women leaders in business. Speaking of struggles, one of the biggest challenges that so many of my clients are experiencing right now is this feeling of isolation.  Let’s be honest it’s lonely being an entrepreneur, and even if you have a team, you many not have a community around you that truly understands what it’s like to be a business owner. That’s why I’ve created the Inner Circle group program.  It’s a specially curated group experience that’s designed specifically for female entrepreneurs as a space to create connection, build confidence, share our collective wisdom, and build our leadership.  It’s a safe space to talk about the hard stuff.  If this sounds like the right place for you, check it out at www.highvoltageleadership.ca  Today's guest is Kristi Mitchell. She  is a Marketing Strategist with an MBA, over ten years of corporate marketing experience, and a drive for continual learning in her field. She guides her customers to a better way to succeed and prevents the overwhelm of data, analytics, and technology. Kristi offers a Marketing Success Roadmap, Implementation Support, and Ongoing Accountability Sessions to assist entrepreneurs with digital marketing. Kristi is passionate about helping women achieve positive lasting success in their business and family life by giving them the gifts of more time in their day and collaborative support to focus on what they love to do. https://www.kristimitchell.com/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/kristimitchell/

Welcome back to the Female Founder Podcast!
Welcome back to the Female Founder Podcast!
I am so excited to bring you the very first episode of the Female Founder Podcast! This season, I am so excited because we really are representing business owners and CEO’s from all across the world. It is amazing to me that in Season 2, we have grown so much that we are able to have conversations that really are Global! What I really love about every single conversation with these female founders from all over the world, is there seem to be similar challenges we are all facing. The first thing I’ve noticed was a general theme of authenticity. All of the incredible business owners I’ve spoken with have dug into their core values and really identified what feels authentic to them – and have built their business around that! The second topic that has come up this season is work and life blend – and how challenging it is to balance all the hats we wear each day. As a leadership coach, I see this as us trying to achieve this unachievable balance and the idea that if it’s not perfect, it’s not good enough. And that is simply not true, but it really is a theme I think we will see throughout this season! We will also hear these business owners and leaders talk about burnout! It’s something a lot of us entrepreneurs deal with in a very profound way, and it wouldn’t be authentic if we don’t open up and have truly vulnerable conversations about this. We all have become so accustomed to what I call Red Lining, where we are constantly pushing ourselves to that point of burnout. I know another thing I am passionate about is helping entrepreneurs and CEOs become aligned with their values. We must know what our personal values are, but also what behaviors align with those values. As female founders, we can bring those values right into our business and that’s what makes it so truly fulfilling! Buckle up as we hear these phenomenal women talk about their stories of authenticity, times of pressure and burnout, and how they incorporate their values into their business. It’s inspiring to hear how they have all built a fantastic culture surrounding these core values. The stories are raw, real and above all – something I think we can all relate to! Being in business can be both challenging and rewarding. However, a lot of the time you can also feel completely alone. That is exactly why I created the Inner Circle, geared towards helping you surround yourself with like-minded business owners and CEO’s. A place where you can come to get support, inspiration, tools, and community to take your business to the next level! If you are ready to level up, check out my website the Inner Circle Program here! As always, I encourage you to reach out! I absolutely love connecting with all of you, and even going to grab a coffee! You can find me on social media everywhere – Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and of course on the Female Founder Podcast! I know you will enjoy hearing from these amazing business owners as much as I have, and I am so excited to kick off Season 2 with you! Thanks for joining me! Lindsay

What I Learned From Female Founder Fridays - a Season #1 recap with Lindsay White
What I Learned From Female Founder Fridays - a Season #1 recap with Lindsay White
Welcome to the final episode of Season 1 of the Female Founder Friday podcast! It has been an amazing season, where I had the privilege and honor of speaking with 18 incredible Female Founders. They each had unique experiences, insight, and golden nuggets to share which is why I wanted to dedicate this final episode to some of my biggest takeaways from these amazing women, and share it all with you! Celebrating our small wins! I even need to remind myself to pause and celebrate the wins along the way! This is why I intentionally took the month of June to pause and really celebrate the one-year anniversary of High Voltage Leadership!  Reinvention. We can pivot and reinvent ourselves and our business at any point. It is NEVER too late! Denise Summers is a perfect example! She quit her corporate job and went back to school, in a class where everyone else was the same age as her kids! How inspiring! Self-Discovery. Truly embracing what makes us unique! Tracy Guillet is a self-proclaimed introvert and shared with us how she really struggled with embracing her introversion. Now she helps others embrace their introversion to see that’s what makes them special! The willingness to fail. Kelly Sinclair explains that when she started, things did not go the way she had hoped. She capitalized on this by learning and proves to us all that there are always lessons to learn. Be bold, be brave, and take risks! Bet on yourself! Robin Devine shared how important it is to bet on yourself. Dig in deep and go big. She admittedly overbuilt her practice, even when everyone told her she shouldn’t. But if you build it, they will come!! Work/Life blend. Susan Kandalaft is a woman who has incredible hustle and heart but the blending of work and life has proven to be challenging and I think we can all relate! The way she unpacks this is in her episode is truly incredible. Hope. Nobody embodies hope like Lindsay Recknell. She is an expert in hope and says it is really all about having a mindset of invitation. That is also what Pauline Greenidge shared, and she emphasized just really having the confidence and knowing you can get through anything. Things will sometimes get messy, chaotic – but there is magic in some of that messiness! Resilience. Every single one of the 18 women I spoke to this season is incredibly resilient! Kim Hayden shared how she created an entire resilience series where she gets to help entrepreneurs find their resilience and build resilient businesses. She really is the definition of resilient and shares how you can weather any storm! Relationships. All 18 of these incredible female founders have created and maintained remarkable relationships. Saawan and Linda of North Water are great examples! They are business partners who have an incredible relationship built on trust, connection, honesty, and hard work. They share how this affects the culture of North Water and what makes it unique and special, and how trusting your partner and your team is so important! I have had so much fun this season, talking to these amazing female founders, and would love to hear from you! What other themes did you pick up on? What discussions would you like to have in Season 2? I also wanted to take the opportunity to say that I am launching a new coaching program called the “CEO Inner Circle” for women who are looking to level up in their leadership and build an inspiring work culture. If you want to grow and scale your business while having a culture that is authentic and true to you, I promise you will NOT want to miss this! Check out the details here! Thank you for a phenomenal season and for being a part of the Female Founder Friday Podcast! It has been so inspiring to connect with all our guests – and all of you! I can’t wait to be back in the Fall and bring you another incredible season!

Embracing Change with Linda Cheung & Sawaan Logan of North Water
Embracing Change with Linda Cheung & Sawaan Logan of North Water
On today’s episode, I have the privilege of sitting down and speaking with not one, but two passionate and inspiring female founders - Linda and Saawan of North Water. Proud immigrants to Canada, they found each other 12 years ago. In their travels across the world, and to the Rocky Mountains, they noticed that there was a large amount of garbage and plastic bottles wherever they went – and it inspired them to leave their established careers to take action. Their purpose is truly inspiring, and it goes to show how passionate they are to dive in, and make something happen. That doesn’t mean that decision, or their path, has been an easy one! North Water started March 1st, 2020 – and 15 days later there was a province-wide lockdown as a global pandemic swept swiftly into Canada. Nobody could have foreseen the world shutting down and starting a new business during a pandemic has proven to be challenging. Linda and Saawan’s practical advice is to: - Surround yourself with a high-performing team, with people you can trust that have the entrepreneurial spirit. You will always make mistakes, but your team helps you get through everything a little bit faster. They make the challenges easier to tackle. It’s the people that make the magic happen. - Find a confidant you can share the journey with, a solid support network. - Remind yourself that your mental health is so important; you need to take care of yourself. - Celebrate the small wins! Be grateful, and put your energy behind the small wins, so you can get after the big ones ahead. - Believe in yourself and, more importantly, be your true authentic self. - Don’t lose sight of your vision, your goal. North Water is local, glacier water from the Rockies. Our Canadian glaciers are clean and pristine, giving us the best water in the world. The bottles are made without plastic, from infinitely recyclable aluminum. Aluminum can be recycled many different times without losing its integrity and doesn’t have to be recycled and made into a new bottle – it can be reused as many different things, making it an incredible sustainable option! You can find Linda and Saawan on their website, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram – or if you want to send them a message, email them here!

Discovering the Science of Hope with Lindsay Recknell
Discovering the Science of Hope with Lindsay Recknell
Today’s Podcast guest, Lindsay Recknell, is a speaker, facilitator and mental health advocate who has experienced the power of hope firsthand and used it to create positive change in her life. Lindsay’s work is all about helping others rediscover hope amid challenge – and teaching us how to use it to create radical positive change in our lives. As an expert in hope and a Certified Psychological Health & Safety Advisor, Lindsay works with organizations to increase their levels of psychological health & safety in the workplace using the Science of Hope – evidence-based, practical tips and techniques to increase levels of hope within organizations by increasing hope levels in individuals. She empowers individuals, strengthens teams and transforms organizations through her Hope Motivates Action, Mental Health in Minutes and Burnout & Boundaries programs. Lindsay lives in Calgary with her husband and their two Golden Retrievers. In today’s episode, Lindsay shares her journey as a ‘serial entrepreneur’ – from consulting, to partnering for Actionable Books, jumping into the wedding industry, and now owning her two businesses on the science of hope, and mental health for teams. In 2018, Lindsay experienced a cycle of burnout that caused her to crash and burn, in both her personal life and in her business in the wedding industry, because she was taking on too much at once. There was a moment where Lindsay recognized she was trying to play the hero and do everything for everyone – just like so many Female Founders – and it was time to take her cape off. Lindsay turned to learning something new in order to recover from the burnout: Positive Psychology and the Science of Hope – the realization that hope is not a made up ‘woo woo’ thing within us, but is actually scientifically a part of our brain that pushes us forward toward towards amazing things. Lindsay’s practical advice to other Female Founders is: don’t cheap out on web design and development – just because you believe you can do all the things as an entrepreneur, does not mean you should! And her mindset advice is to have self-awareness. For Lindsay, it’s important to be aware of her ‘shiny squirrel syndrome,’ when she has so many ideas and wants to do all the things. Being aware of this allows Lindsay to stop and check-in, ask herself if she really needs to make a change, and gives her an opportunity to find new things within her business rather than creating a whole new business. You can find Lindsay on her website, Instagram, Facebook, or on LinkedIn.

How A Pivot Lead Lead To A Beautiful Bubble with Dawn O'Connor Founder of Focus Bubbles
How A Pivot Lead Lead To A Beautiful Bubble with Dawn O'Connor Founder of Focus Bubbles
Today’s Podcast guest Dawn O'Connor isn't just the founder of Focus Bubbles, she's also the Chief Bubble Host. I can tell you from experience that she has an incredible ability to make everyone feel welcome, capable, and ready to GSD (get sh*t done.) Dawn created Focus Bubbles during Covid when clients were seeing their teams struggling to stay connected and focused; companies were wanting to keep remote work as productive as possible. Dawn felt called to respond to this need in a way that built community and went beyond the free webinars that were becoming so common. Focus Bubbles are fun, facilitated co-working spaces - think study hall for grown-ups – that provide community accountability. They create the space to make a statement and follow through with it. Designed to help you reach your maximum productivity levels without a "feet to the fire" feeling, focus bubbles are about giving you a way to connect while you decrease procrastination and discover exactly what you can accomplish in the timeframe. The key pieces of advice Dawn has for other Female Founders are don't be afraid to ask for help, it’s okay to rely on your network, and most importantly, know your numbers! Recognizing what you give to the community can help you ask for help in return. Knowing your numbers – exactly what you’re spending and earning for each new client – will bring you a lot of clarity. You want to know exactly what you need to do to get where you want to go! You can find Focus Bubbles on their website, Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn. If you're curious about reducing your own levels of procrastination, improving your productivity, and connecting to others while you GSD, you can sign up for a free Bubble!

An Mindset Of Invitation - Pauline Greenidge the Founder of UpWard HR
An Mindset Of Invitation - Pauline Greenidge the Founder of UpWard HR
My guest this week, Pauline Greenidge, knew from a very young age that she wanted to work for herself.  And it's no surprise that as Founder and Principal at UpWard HR, her business is built around some very personal experiences of reinvention, resilience, curiosity and possibilities.  Pauline can trace her journey of connection and resilience back to when her family relocated from the bustling city of Calgary, to the small town of Claresholm in her teen years.  As the only family of color, she began to understand how important connection, creating relationship, and the value of belonging truly is. Pauline's had a wonderful career in human resources, but being a part of the Suncor/Petro Canada merger was definitely a pivotal moment in her experience.  From that incredible experience came her book; 'A Grand Dinner Party: Setting the Table for Employee Engagement Through Mergers and Acquisitions' where she explores the employee perspective through these challenging and disruptive events. Now, in her HR consulting practice, Pauline encourages all of her clients to create engaging cultures, and inclusive workplaces, that support and engage their teams through times of change. It's Pauline‘s philosophy of approaching every opportunity from a 'mindset of invitation' (a phrase I just love!) and staying open to all possibilities that has clearly lead to her success.  You can connect with Pauline by email, Twitter, on her website, and through LinkedIn, where she's always providing great content for leaders and teams.

Brandy Payne is a champion for workplace mental health.  From her time as an Associate Minister of Health here in Alberta, and now in her own practice, she has focused on bringing mental health to the forefront for organizations, leaders and their teams. It's Brandy's unique approach, that one size definitely does not fit all, that makes her unique as a workplace mental health consultant.  She is particularly passionate about helping those who are high-performing and don't respond to traditional programs and suggestions.  That's why she talks about "dodging" burnout and creates custom programs that are so impactful. Brandy's also had an entrepreneurial journey of her own over the past few years, as she's build her practice after leaving government.  Her biggest win was really being able to hone in on what her clients really needed, where their real pain points were, so that she could really be of service.  Ironically, it's the pandemic, and the mental health fall-out, that's helped her build some very powerful and impactful programs.If you, or your team are looking for an exceptional workplace mental health consultant to support your team you can find Brandy on her website and LinkedIn where she always offers great content that I know you'd find valuable.

Susan Elford is a serial creator and community builder.  She has an incredible talent for bringing people together, aligning them all to a purpose, and energizing the group to make amazing things happen. She's also a PR pro, communications master, and coach extraordinaire!

Her move to coaching was very organic, and now through Susan Elford Coaching & Consulting, she helps female entrepreneurs (like me!) start and grow their businesses, and find that work and life blend we all desire.

Denise Summers is an incredible Business Storyteller.  As the owner of Amphora Communications she guides entrepreneurs and small businesses owners as they craft communications that speak right to the heart and soul of their clients. It's Denise's own story that is super compelling!

As a keen observer, and endlessly curious human, Denise loves to uncover what makes people tick, and help them tell their story.  She's always got a thousand questions.  But after years of hard work Denise knows that becoming and overnight success is totally a myth, and that to grow a successful business consistency is key, especially in your communications and marketing.   You can find Denise, and Amphora Communications on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn, where she'd love to connect and help you craft your message.

Hard Work & Great Relationships - Susan Kandalaft owner of Executive Solutions
Hard Work & Great Relationships - Susan Kandalaft owner of Executive Solutions
Susan Kandalft has had an incredible career.  And there's no doubt that her success is grounded in her own work ethic, as well as her ability to build incredible relationships.  That's a big part of why her business Executive Solutions is celebrating 35 years in business in 2021! Susan's self described "PhD in Recruitment and People" has been earned through lots of heart and hustle over the years.  Amazingly, she does business today with hiring managers, whom she placed in roles 30 year ago.  That kind of loyalty speaks volumes about the incredible relationships this Female Founder creates. But, as she tells us in this week's' episode of Female Founder Fridays, there were times when she neglected her own health and wellness, and some of her relationships along the way. At times it's even left her feeling a bit resentful and burnt out.  But despite a cancer battle (she's now happy and health!) she's still driven to connect great people with really amazing opportunities. You can find Susan on LinkedIn, and her amazing Executive Solutions team on their website, LinkedIn or on Facebook, where they are always on the hunt for great talent!

Embrace Your Introvert - Tracy Guillet owner of Quiet Pathways
Embrace Your Introvert - Tracy Guillet owner of Quiet Pathways
My guest on episode #4 of Female Founder Fridays is the owner of Quiet Pathways, Tracy Guillet.  Tracy is a councillor who has focused her practice on introverted teens and adults. As a self professed "quiet person", Tracy spent most of her life feeling like she didn't quite fit in our extroverted world.  As she embraced her authentic, introverted self she began to see things differently and with greater confidence.     Now, Tracy is passionate about supporting others, particularly teens and young adults, as they navigate their own journey in truly embracing their introvert self. I personally have spent time with Tracy, in order to better understand the introverts in my life, and I can tell you the insights (even for this High Voltage extrovert) have been amazing. Tracy regularly creates amazing content, geared towards quiet people and the challenges they face, on LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook that you should definitely check out!  Or you can connect with her directly right here.  Thanks for listening in!

The Willingness To Fail - Kelly Sinclair from KS Communications
Thank you for joining me for Episode #3 of Female Founder Fridays!  My guest, Kelly Sinclair from KS Communications, is someone who I love connecting and collaborating with! Like so many Female Founders (including me!), she didn't actually intend to start her own business.  Kelly changed her mind after some really challenging times in her personal life that made her rethink the way she wanted to work.   She's also very open and vulnerable that she experienced some failure early on in her business, and that she learned some incredible things along the way.  It's her commitment to her own "why", and how passionate she is about her business, that's driving her success today.   Kelly has a really great program called Brand Message Mastery that she's created just for solopreneurs and small businesses owners that's open now for applications.  So if you need help to figure out what your brand message is, you need to connect with Kelly. You can also fined Kelly on Facebook or on Instagram where she's got a ton of amazing tips and tricks for you. I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation as much as we did having it.  See you next Friday!
