Podcast with Farah Bazzi, Founder & Creative Director for Maraseel Cards

Let’s talk about taking that leap of faith…

Join me today as I chat it up with Farah Bazzi, Founder & Creative Director from Maraseel Cards in Dearborn, Michigan.

Farah discusses what it’s like to leave her professional career as a high school Biology teacher to have her twin daughters right at the world shut down with COVID.

She discusses how she listened to her intuition and decided rather than to go back teaching, she dove into creating her own line of luxury stationaries!

I had the pleasure of meeting this incredibly talented woman at a LeadHER-ship conference late last fall. To say the least, I was so inspired by her story, I wanted to share it with the world, but especially those who may be standing with a foot on both sides of the fence trying to decide to go for their dream or not.

Listen today, and I believe you make the decision to make that leap of faith!

Podcast with Ayesha Maxwell, Manager of Entrepreneurship Program at ACCESS

“To empower communities to improve their health and their economic, social and cultural well-being.” ~ACCESS

Join me today as I chat it up with Ayesha Maxwell, Manager of the Entrepreneurship Program at ACCESS Dearborn.

I met this amazing lady back in the fall  of 2022 after attending a conference focusing on female entrepreneurship. I had received an email invite to an upcoming conference taking place in Dearborn MI hosted by a local organization, ACCESS. I had worked with this agency during my time in Dearborn with both the DDA & Chamber of Commerce, so I was really excited to attend! As I read the details & description, to say the least I got even more interested! 

The conference was geared towards female entrepreneurs, which is right up my alley, so I registered right away… and I am so happy I did! The conference, cleverly titled LeadHER-ship was intentionally designed to host a smaller group in order to have a more intimate feel and allow the attendees to chat and get to know one another. 

ACCESS (Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services) has been serving the community for 50 years. Founded by a group of dedicated volunteers in 1971 out of a storefront in Dearborn’s impoverished south end, ACCESS was created to assist the Arab immigrant population adapt to life in the United States.

Today, ACCESS is the most comprehensive Arab American community nonprofit in the United States. With 10 locations and more than 120 programs serving metro Detroit, ACCESS offers a wide range of social, economic, health and educational services to a diverse population.

Ayesha shares today the programs available to all entrepreneurs, not just Arab Americans in Southeast Michigan along with resources for other areas.

Podcast with Kat Sturtz, Rocking Your Path Life Coach & The Purgatory Relief Coach for People Who Think Marketing Is Hell.

In today’s podcast I get to introduce you to one of the most remarkable women I have the blessing of knowing & calling a friend! 

I met Kat back in 2012 when I was just starting out on my writing journey. After a wonderful conversation with her, I was off to one of her writing groups. At my first group meeting I was in awe at how wonderful she and the group were. How welcoming and the information, guidance, and encouragement I received cannot be expressed in words… I was so touched. To this day I truly feel Kat helped give me the legs to stand on and go for it! I started Rocking My Path. 

Soon after I started attending the writing group I began blogging for The Detroit News, other online publications, and even a couple magazines. 

And that is what we are going to focus on during this segment of For Dragonflies And Me. Today Kat & I are going to talk about Mindset & Motivation and her Rocking Your Path world! You’ll learn how she guides people to grow in their solo-entrepreneurship! 

My passion is helping time and cash-strapped solopreneurs build a profitable home-based business. 

I especially love helping clients break free from despair, leaking money, or making little at all.

What about You? What keeps you up at night, tossing and turning trying to figure out how to get past all the obstacles life throws at you?” Kat Sturtz.

For those of you looking for Marketing and Promotion coaching…
Clients, biz friends, and followers know Kat affectionately as The Purgatory Relief Coach for People Who Think Marketing Is Hell.

“Marketing is necessary but it needn’t leave you feeling stuck between Heaven and Hell. And it doesn’t need to be expensive, hard to do, or leave you feeling icky at the end of the day either. Not when you follow the marketing strategies, tactics, and advice I love most. Top on that list: If you don’t like being marketed to in a particular way then don’t use that method in your own marketing. Doesn’t matter if it’s being touted as the current best tactic to use. If you don’t like it, it’s likely your target niche doesn’t either.” Kat Sturtz

…and we will also chat about a wonderful organizational tool, Trello. I am currently taking that course & will have a blog coming up all about it!

Be sure to join the group for this event on Facebook so you don’t miss a beat!
See you there!

Until then, happy day friends!
