Welcome to The Rutledge Perspective Podcast! I started this podcast to talk about the revelations I had during my corporate career and as I’ve been building my business. Revelations about showing up. Insights about stepping into your power by being REALLY CLEAR about who you are, where you are, what you want and what it’s going to take to get there. The goal is for YOU to know that you are absolutely not alone. And that you always have a choice.

The episodes are short and sweet and deep enough to give you something to ponder. There are also interviews with some amazing women who have incredible stories and great advice for you. So whether your are building a business or building a career (not mutually exclusive), this podcast is for you. And if you are in your sweet spot, it’s still for you! Subscribe to the podcast, give us a rating, send me some comments (I really do use them for the development and improvement of content). Thank you for listening!

I’m always looking for guests for the show. So if you are a woman with a story and would like to be considered for a guest spot, click on the link below and let’s have a conversation!
