A conversation about racism in the UK, between Rayna Russell and Dipti Solanki

 

This is a slightly different episode from the usual ones. Last Saturday I listened in on a live between two women I hugely admire and respect, Dipti Solanki and Rayna Russell.

 

Dipti was chatting to Rayna about her experiences of growing up as a black woman in the UK to help us understand the nuances of white privilege, how those show up in every-day life, and what needs to happen to fight systemic racism.

 

It was real, raw, and compassionate, and I approached them afterwards to ask if I could share the replay on the Podcast. Thankfully they agreed.

Rayna Russell is an Actress and Artist Mindset Coach and you can find more about her here: https://www.facebook.com/Flowcoachingforartists

7-Figure Females with Sigrun

 

In this episode of the Simply Smart Business Show, Gemma is joined by Sigrun to talk about overcoming resistance, the essential elements for growing a team and how important money mindset is to make 7-figures.

7-Figure Females is a mini-series on The Simply Smart Business Show where I set out to bust some myths around creating a 7-figure business as a female business owner, understand what it truly takes to get there, and inspire you to aim high.

More on Sigrun here: 

Sigrun is on a mission to accelerate gender equality through female entrepreneurship. She is the leading business mentor for female online entrepreneurs in Europe, TEDx speaker, and host of the Sigrun Show podcast.  

Originally from Reykjavik, Iceland, she has spent more than half her life outside her home country; in Germany, United Kingdom, and Switzerland.  

Since she was a young girl she’s always been drawn to leadership roles, so despite having zero business background nor the education she made a life-changing phone call and asked to become the CEO of a software company shortly after finishing her master’s degree in architecture – and she got the job!

Ten years, another three master’s degrees, and several CEO roles later, Sigrun found herself in Switzerland with her newfound love but sick and unemployable. Her dream was to be location independent so she could spend time in Iceland and Switzerland, travel the world, and take care of her health. So in 2014, Sigrun started her online business and within 4 years she built a 7 figure business helping women from all over the world. Her signature program is SOMBA, Sigrun’s Online MBA, and her other programs are SOMBA Momentum, a group coaching program, VIP Mastermind, a mastermind program, and the Red Circle, the first million dollar mastermind for female entrepreneurs in Europe.

Sigrun’s motto is: Be Inspired. Think Big. Take Action.

More on Haley here: 

Haley helps overbooked entrepreneurs phase out their clients and create consistent 10k evergreen months with a course or membership site. 

 

She was that entrepreneur rockin’ the 14-hour day freelance life desperately seeking the marketing secret that would magically cure her bank account. The gurus were shouting advice that didn’t land right with her - she knew there had to be an easier way than using a strategy that relied on a big, warm audience and consistent content.

 

So she created a different approach...
