    Gender Equity Pay Law: Fair Ways to Challenge Wage Gaps!

    in Business

    Join us today for Women Lead Radio as Michelle Bergquist, your host of Women Who Lead, interviews Denise Visconti, Office Managing Shareholder at Littler Mendelson, P.C.
    As of January 1st, 2016, California employers are required to adhere to the Fair Pay Act, SB 358, which prohibits employers from paying employees differently based on gender.  Employers must have a non-sex-based reason, or a reason that is supported by an identifiable business necessity, for any differentials that might exist between the compensation they are paying employees performing “substantially similar work.”  
    This new law also allows employees to discuss their salary and wages and ask questions of their employer relating to compensation without fear of retribution.  Under the Fair Pay Act, not only is this type of discussion allowed, and therefore enables everyone to determine if they are being paid an equal wage for “substantially similar work,” but such discussions are protected.  Any employee who asks questions about their pay or takes action to rectify an existing wage gap also is protected.
    Denise specializes in employment and wage and hour litigation. She also regularly counsels employers regarding compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations that govern the workplace.
    As the CEO and Co-Founder of Connected Women of Influence, Michelle Bergquist is a passionate advocate for women in business. At Connected Women of Influence, we believe that more women need to lead in business and everything we do is center-focused on designing platforms, programs, connections and collaborative opportunities for b2b women to prosper, succeed and lead the way in business today!

    ✨✨ Secrets for Real Life Superwomen in Business ✨✨

    in Entrepreneur

    You're invited to listen in and join in the discussion on my facebook page!!

    Up untill recently, I was really unhappy about how tired and lethargic I felt. Partially because of my barin and energy draining "day job" day. So I did what everyone "knows" not to do. I left. I can honestly say I have no regrets and make no apologies.

    Why? 

    Because I truly believe that in order to have a thriving business, we need to have vibrant health. It really drives our results and how we show up in a powerful way. Plus a tired business coach is not a good one. My vibrance and health affects my ability to serve.

    The same applies to you. Are you feeling your best right now? On a scale of 1-10, how healthy and vibrant do you feel? 

    If you are anywhere under a 10, you need to listen in and join into the broadcast this January 26th.

    Big or Small: MARKETING MATTERS!

    in Business

    Join us today on Women Lead Radio, as your host of Business IS Personal, Shawn Marie Turi, interviews Jacqui Genow, Independent Marketing Consultant at J. Genow Marketing.


    What she loves, is delving into the character of a project, seeing what makes it tick.  She loves the spark that comes from putting pencil to paper and then figuring out how to build it. How to market it. How to make room for people to fall in love with it.
    She loves the puzzle. That's marketing.  


    People say she's obsessively passionate about marketing. Well, maybe she is. When she was younger, she studied acting. Then, she became a woodworker and started a business crafting display boxes. Eventually both passions fizzled out, but because they just weren't for her.  


    Shawn Marie Turi is your host of Business IS Personal: (What you do and WHY you do it… MATTERS!), a show focused on interviewing remarkable professional women and entrepreneurs who are doing what they love, kicking ass and believe that ‘Business IS (in fact) Personal’…and what we do, how we do it, and most importantly, why we do it really does matter!

    Keeping The Peace and Building Profits in a Family Based Business!

    in Business

    Join us today for Women Lead Radio, as Deanna Potter, your host of Sassy Sales and Business Development, interviews Christie Bravo, General Manager of Bravo Roofing, Inc. 


    Family based businesses are the backbone and gold standard of this country.  Watching the longevity and success of such organizations builds pride, trust, and loyalty in many industries.  However, behind the scenes there can be challenges unique to that environment.  Unique factors exist from family dynamics, differences in business philosophies, and challenges surrounding “the new vs. the old” approach to business.  When tackling large clients, government contracts, and personnel issues it takes a special approach.  Maintaining a successful business can be a totally different ballgame when working with family.


    With over 40 years serving their clients, and having multiple generations in the workplace, Christie knows first hand what works well and what to avoid.  Being responsible for all business functions, including: clientele relations, accounting records, employee files and marketing. She will discuss with us the ups and downs of running a successful family owned business.  Christie will share with us her experience, techniques, and philosophy on how to implement and maximize business based strategies that will give new life to your business!


    Deanna Potter is your host of Sassy Sales and Business Development, a show focused on down and dirty conversations from real women on real challenges in how to sell. As a woman business owner for the last 15 years, Deanna has delivered stellar sales results over the course of three downward markets.

    Hot Mess to Spiritual Business Success!

    in Self Help

    If you have been called to bring in more spirituality in your business, the first step is to honor your personal gift, accept self and move in to the flow.


    Today's Massive Momentum Guest:


    Cindy Sharp’s 20 year experience in the corporate world as a sales trainer, sales coach and AVP with JPMorgam Chase, made one thing clearly evident, that helping others grow their business was a gift she was born with. As a quirky, rule breaker, change maker and a light to all that know her - her moving stories of being born with a rare birth defect, wealthy at times, abused, homeless at 17, on occasion very rebellious and eventually self-loved. She shines a bright light in a fun filled loving way. Out of the pain of a life-changing stroke in 2011, as she calls her “stroke of light.” Cindy decided to take her god given talent to help others succeed and she turned to face a more spiritual path and now teaches other to do the same.


    Our listening audience will receive a complimentary one on one coaching session with Cindy. Visit her online at www.sharpeningyourspirit.com.
