Ep.81 – The Positive and the Possible with Donna Orender

Interviewing business executives and leaders is one way I grow and learn. Especially when talking to women business leaders, I find that I walk away encouraged and enlightened. And of course, I especially enjoy it when one happens to be my friend.

That’s the case today with former Goldman Sachs partner Lisa Shalett and former WNBA president Donna Orender, who joined me to talk about Donna’s recently released book, WOWsdom! The Girl’s Guide to the Positive and the Possible.

Seven out of ten girls feel they don’t measure up academically, physically, or socially. 74% of girls feel they are under pressure to please everyone. These statistics confirm what we already know: the leaders of tomorrow need our support today.

Filled with letters, activities, and no-nonsense advice from influencers, including Lisa, Queen Sugar actress Tina Lifford, CNN Editor-at-Large Kelly Wallace, founder of the Muhammad Ali Center Lonnie Ali, superstar athlete Annika Sorenstam and a certain radio show and podcast host, WOWsdom! celebrates the WOW of girls and the WISDOM of women.

In letters written to themselves, women, men, and girls from all walks of life – artists, athletes, actors, business leaders, entrepreneurs, students, doctors, scientists, and humanitarians – share their hard-earned wisdom for girls who are seeking guidance and inspiration as they begin their personal and professional journeys.

Creating a world where the leaders of today help shape and inspire the leaders of tomorrow is what WOWsdom! is all about.
