Episode 183: Risking It ALL with Sheroic: Cassey Ho and Lisa Bilyeu

Shero (noun): a female who fights for what she believes in and never gives up, even if it means fighting alone.

I had the honor of interviewing not one, but TWO Sheroes on today’s episode – Cassey Ho and Lisa Bilyeu – the hosts of The Sheroic Podcast. Before starting The Sheroic, both women were already successful entrepreneurs in their own right (Cassey is the CEO of Blogilates and Lisa is a founding team member of Quest Nutrition), however both share that there wasn’t a huge “break” that landed them in either role.

Tune in to hear about each woman’s journey thus far and how they’ve risen (and continued to rise) to meet the challenges and obstacles that get in their way. I know you will absolutely fall in love with their comforting, loving and vulnerable natures. This hour was seriously a warm-up for more inspiring conversations to come – enjoy!
