B Side: My Bigger Why

Welcome to the first episode of When She Founded, the podcast featuring powerhouse female entrepreneurs, providing them with a platform to share their entrepreneurial story, the challenges and obstacles they’ve faced along the way, and the lessons they’ve learned to build thriving businesses. I’m your host, Somer Hamrick, President and Founder of Channel Clinical Solutions, LLC, a marketplace to connect small to mid-sized clinical research sponsors with small to mid-sized vendors.


In today’s episode, I share who I am, my career background, and my bigger why for launching the When She Founded podcast. I explain how my career background impacted my decision to launch my entrepreneurial venture and how the lessons I’ve learned along the way has helped me gain clarity on the vision and mission of my company. I share the challenges I’ve faced with finding female mentors who have stepped out of the corporate boardrooms to pave their own entrepreneurial paths. I also share how the When She Founded podcast serves as a platform for female founders to be mentors for other women entrepreneurs, so we can all succeed in following our passion.
