Welcome to the FIRST episode of “Show Up” Interview Series!
The purpose of these interviews is to highlight a woman’s journey and share her story. I believe all women have stories to share, no matter how big or small. It’s showing up and being real that help drop the mask, and allow women to collaborate, celebrate and connect with each other.
From here on out, all interviews will be 20-25mins, held on FB Live, so the only option is to be real, regardless of mistakes or wanting things to be perfect! The camera will continue to roll either way 😉
But before that, our FIRST episode is a 40min special interview with Maria Kurylo, former government employee turned full-fledged entrepreneur. Maria shares her experience of how she made the leap, and more importantly, WHY.
If speaking your truth terrifies you, you’ll want to tune into this special episode.
