Ep 187 (Podcast Takeover) Personal Joy, Practical Leadership, and How to take over the world

I LOVE my guests and the relationships we build. This must be why I had the crazy idea to allow any of them who were eager for it to take over the show and ask me anything they like with nothing off limits.

Episode 96 guest Emi Kirschner, CEO of Empress Enterprises, is the most recent guest to jump in the driver’s seat and we cover a lot of ground from the power of curiosity and eagerness to my thoughts on how to inspire global change to my favorite colors, movies, and TV shows with a TON in between.


About the Guest:

Investor, serial entrepreneur, coach and host of the Tribe of Leaders Podcast, Emi Kirschner’s mission is to empower women entrepreneurs in reaching beyond 7 figures by helping them  build more profitable businesses that create the change they want to see in the world.  

Masterfully combining her deeply intuitive abilities with her analytical sense plus her 12+ years of entrepreneurial experience, Emi guides her clients in becoming the best versions of themselves, growing connected teams and building authentic sales.  

As the host of the Tribe of Leaders podcast, Emi interviews successful entrepreneurs who share their stories of success and failure in growing their business and the leadership skills they attained along the way.  

Every January through May Emi puts on her instructor hat for a group of brilliant 7th-12th graders and teaches them how to write a business plan and pitch to investors. 

When she isn’t working you can find Emi sipping coffee and wearing flip flops where she lives in Philadelphia or seeking sunshine and visiting beaches up and down the east coast.
