Hello there. I'm Merilyn and this is a special edition of my podcast.
Throughout March I'm SHOWING OFF women.
Everyday women of all sorts, all over the world. Some I've known for years, and others are new friends that I've met on this podcast.
We are chatting about the power and the struggle of being women. I'm showcasing my guests, and allowing them to showcase the women who have influenced them.
The whole purpose of this March project is to use International Women’ Day and Women's History Month as an opportunity to showcase every women in my world… to ‘show off’ about them, which is something we are usually uncomfortable with.
My desire is to bring a little insight, encouragement, inspiration and even a little joy and beauty at a difficult time on the planet.  And, most importantly, to help me on my personal mission to re-imagine leadership for women.
Because when women shine... when women rise... when women unleash their wow... earth smiles.
In this episode I'm sharing my MANIFESTO. Reimagining Leadership for Women.
