    The Confidence Factor for Women in Leadership with Carol Sankar

    in Management

    Let's have some conversation with today's leading women in leadership and high level CEO's to learn how they claimed their Confidence Factor. The visionary behind this movement, Carol Sankar, commenced the Confidence Factor for Women in Leadership research in 2011 after a long successful career in real estate and law, yet taking note of the lack of powerful women in profitable industries.

    Sankar developed a private group of 100 women and asked the difficult questions about profit, asking for more, and gaining access to elevated opportunities in their career and business for 4 consecutive years and measured their growth. As a result, she took her findings and started the Confidence Factor movement and round-table series for high achieving women who feel the "plateau" of success. She realized the reason why women plateaued was due to lack of confidence

    .Her first book, The Confidence Factor for Women in Business, became an international bestseller. The new book, The Confidence Factor for Women: Conversations with Women CEO's, includes personal and professional stories from leaders. Readers will understand the obstacles that all women face in their journey, including Carol's journey breaking through the boundaries of women in real estate investing.

    What you'll glean from this conversation: The clarity to focus on leadership; The confidence to face the obstacles; The tools to access elevated opportunities and MORE!

      Carol Sankar has been featured in Madame Noire, LearnVest, The Steve Harvey TV Show, CNNMoney.com, TEDx, Entrepreneur Magazine and Essence Magazine.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Geneva Renee!

    in Music

    Our beautiful artist from Oxnard, California has joined us on the show before this - but THIS time, Geneva Renee has big news!  A Blues Alley event - showcasing that warm and glorious voice - will be held soon.  

    You must certainly understand that this is a big deal from a small town on the West Coast.  Coming to Washington D.C., a few years ago to attend Howard University, our guest must have known that it was going to take some work to achiveve success.  There are so many wonderful artists in this region!  Well, she not only has achieved some enviable success - but the attention on her is something special.  So far, she has performed in front of director Spike Lee and two Presidents.  She won the local NBC affiliate's competition for a VIP audition - for the wildly successful TV show, "The Voice."  AND Geneva has shared the stage with dozens of performers - some are household names.  Diana Ross and Vanessa Williams and Hugh Jackman.  We could fill a PAGE with artists!

    Our mezzo soprano has a project called "Beautiful Wonder" - and some of the songs on the album have come under close scrutiny for the BEST reasons.  We'll talk about that and play a few tracks.  And we'll learn how her inspirations: Kathleen Battle, Yolanda Adams, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston continue to propel her.  Geneva wants to keep expanding her horizons and attracting the right kind of attention.  Like, for example, Grammy consideration for a song that she wrote (it happened!).

    Join us for a special show on 8/21 - just an hour, starting at two p.m. Eastern - we'll get the lowdown on what makes a California Girl tick.  You'll be delighted by what you'll learn :)
