ProFresh is a journey through fresh, honest, and raw confessions from female professionals. In season two, we're providing clarity to the questions plaguing Midwestern women as they try to negotiate their place in work and in life.
In a business world that’s still dominated by men, we women have our work cut out for us.
Luckily, we don’t have to do it alone.
ProFresh is an outlet for us to stick together, learn from each other, and join a like-minded, badass community of ladies. Let’s freakin’ do this.
But we can't do it without you.
Submit your questions to the ProFresh podcast, and we'll find the answers. We'll source experts to get you the best advice to take on the most taxing problems you're facing as a woman working today.
Ask your questions. Get answers.
Ask your burning (ok awkward) questions about female leadership, work place dynamics and entrepreneurship.
It's 100% anonymous unless you want us to mention your name.
Season Two of the ProFresh Podcast
"You're either a dad or a Good Dad. You're either a mom or a Bad Mom.”
I feel more shame not being available because I don’t have children, I don’t have even a boyfriend so there’s nothing taking up my time so when people slack me on the weekend and I don’t respond it’s like “what are you doing?”
"We're all starting to understand that financial reality is not just or equal... so it's great to ask for help and get it."
“I just wouldn’t ever think of this outlet as a place to be super vulnerable."
“I would think to myself ‘oh we would’ve been friends in college!’ And that is a really ridiculous way to hire."
"9am-5pm, cut and dry, I clock in, I clock out. [Work and life] don’t mix."
"I didn’t want our bodies to be factored into the content we were presenting."
"It’s when you feel that condescension and you’re in the workplace and you’re like ‘wow I actually know more about this topic’ [than you]."
“It’s the riding the line between assertive but not bitchy. A leader but not bossy. And why I think women can feel very held back in the workplace because they’re walking this tightrope basically.”
"When I think of networking I think of people at a cocktail party being like ‘oh where do you work? Oh that’s funny, here’s my card…’ I think of individuals."
Whether it's clients, friends, or your uncle: awkward questions are everywhere. And even when people don't mean to throw you off- it's good to have a strategy to keep cool.
When managing other people actually means looking in the mirror, we have to confront the truth about our mental health.
How do you know when to speak up and when things are too political?
