Episode 15: The Great Girls Network with Margery Miller
Today we’re talking to someone who absolutely defines the name of our show. Margery Miller is a woman your mother warned you about. A 60’s radical who never lost her spirit for women’s activism.
Margery believes that there is still a lot that needs to change for women in the business world which is why she founded The Great Girls Network, a safe space for women to step out and speak up.
Too often women limit themselves in business and in life because they are “help-a-holics.” Margery knows because SHE WAS ONE. We discuss her 12-step program to break out of our help addiction and start focusing and trusting in ourselves.
