Beth Zimmer – WRMB013

Beth Zimmer is the Co-Founder and Managing Director, The Innovation Collaborative

No one sells Erie, PA better than Beth Zimmer who served many years as a talent acquisition recruiter and in business development. “Its less than 2 hours from Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Cleveland and Toronto; we’re situated on one of the Great Lakes; businesses can easily reach global markets through the Erie gateway; and the region experiences four seasons like no other.”

When the community started to decline, this passion led her to recruit a network of “super smart people” to discuss economic development. They learned from the Kauffman Foundation that 100% of net new jobs for the past 30 years were born from entrepreneurship. The team quickly concluded that supporting a small to- mid-size business ecosystem was sorely missing, and something had to be done about.

A self-described resourceful rebel, she stepped up, secured a grant, formed a non-profit, worked for almost 2 years without pay and trail blazed a path to one of the most exemplary Social Impact Entrepreneurship models in the country.

The result: a thriving business community who understands entrepreneurship, deploys the Icehouse Model to grow and expand, and is connected to ATHENA International, “the luckiest people in Erie.”

Listen to learn how she enabled a grassroots movement to thrive.

It appears that Julie Ann, a business culture expert and coach, is seeing her wish come true – to change the world one person at a time. Her passion to get people to want to come to work and do their best led her to create her podcast called Businesses that Care, where she interviews leaders of great cultures about what they do every day.

She continues to write and speak about themes that resonate with her: enjoy the journey, celebrate the mundane, ask more questions to build relationships, find a coach and most of all care about the people in your workplace.

A certified laughter leader, she named her dog “Joy,” her four-legged affirmation, which reminds her to be mindful to wake up with joy, walk with joy…... If you are looking for a reliable reminder to seek your joy, regardless of work/life experiences, then this podcast is for you.

Debbie Peterson – WRMB011

Debbie Peterson is a Business Keynote Speaker, Mindset Strategist, Coach at Getting To Clarity + ATHENA® International Board Member

What would your life be like if you had tools you could rely on to go from frustrated to focused? If you could interrupt negative patterns and take yourself into a different more nurturing direction?

After 30 years in corporate America, Debbie found herself not only frustrated but stressed to the point that it was affecting her health. She knew she needed a radical change.

Hear how she pivoted into running Getting to Clarity, a coaching, training and speaking business where she helps women figure out what is getting in their own way and provides tools, strategies and action plans to bridge the gap to fulfillment.

Drawing on her deeply personal experience and her expertise in Neurolinguistic Programming and Huna she shares how our mindset and thoughts either hold us back or propel us, support or sabotage us at an unconscious level. “We say awful things to ourselves” says Debbie and “we may not even be aware.”

The language we use clues us in. Learn from someone who’s lived it about how to catch ourselves, see the unseen, gamify our trials and overcome limiting beliefs to reclaim a step-up attitude and experience a different, more meaningful result.

Jenny Olsen – WRMB010

Jenny Olsen is a Marketing Specialist.

When Jenny Olsen ended this podcast, she offered to help any woman who might want her assistance…and she meant it.

Digital marketing is such a challenging career that is reason alone to listen to this podcast. Jenny has a wide range of marketing experiences with different companies, most recently with the automobile industry.

She has clear-cut ideas to share with any woman considering a career in marketing or already in marketing. Five takeaways from the podcast include:

*Always keep learning because marketing changes very rapidly. Your routine everyday should include 20 minutes of research related to your field.

*Join a “20 Group” of professionals who have titles like yours to share ideas, to discuss problems, and to learn what’s working in other places.

*Marketing is a critical but challenging field because you must be able to see trends, pick out patterns, understand customers, and so much more. Don’t let it consume you!

*Computer research is a vital part of marketing, but go into the community and ask questions to find out what customers want.

*Women are exceptional in marketing because they pay attention to details; they are methodical; and they are sensitive to what others want.
