Episode 82 - BWB Extra - Making A Man with Jerry Hyde

We continue our conversation with Author and Mentor Jerry Hyde and dig deeper into the roots of Jerry's recent documentary "Make Me A Man" where members of Jerry's male therapy groups are interviewed to show what conscious masculinity looks like.

We also hear about how Jerry's approach to therapy practice differs between male and female clients and discuss the much broader topic of gender stereotypes, their place in society and whether they're still valid in today's world.

Episode 70 - BWB Extra - Surviving Through Faith with Jennifer Ogunyemi

This week our continued conversation with Jennifer Ogunyemi takes a different direction .. away from business talk and towards hearing her life story about abandonment and homelessness at 16 years old, being rejected by her family and living in hostels through to finding strength and positivity in Islam which became her life line and helped her become the successful business woman she is today.

It's a story which we believe is an incredible example of how people can deal with extreme adversity and use it as a basis to flourish both personally and professionally .. the kind of perspective we all need from time to time to keep ourselves in check.

Welcome to Survival Through Faith.

Episode 69 - Jennifer Ogunyemi - Sisters In Business

Our guest this week is Jennifer Ogunyemi, a business owner, author, mentor and speaker. She is the founder of Sisters in Business which aims to support women from all walks of life on their entrepreneurial journey.

Our 2 part conversation with Jennifer takes us through Jennifer's gripping life story: from being homeless at 16 years old living in hostels, to finding solace in Islam, to becoming the self-aware, driven individual (and mother of 4!) she is today, part 1 of our conversation gives us insight into Jennifer's current life and reality as Founder and Leader of Sisters in Business, a platform set up for women of all races and religions to network, collaborate and be inspired.

Jennifer is passionate about representation, religious diversity and Inclusion. After a 10 year career at the NHS working with diverse and vulnerable communities, Jennifer decided to step away and focus on what she cares about the most - changing the narrative of the Muslim business woman. And it was in 2017 whilst 6 months pregnant that Jennifer setup “Sisters in Business” as a reaction to her feeling lonely and isolated after a business venture of hers failed. She wanted to connect with women who understood her faith as well as the reality of business.

Today, Sisters in Business has held over 30 networking brunches with over 1500 women of all races and religions walking through the doors and has become a safe space for women to network, collaborate, and be inspired. Jennifer is a firm believer that female entrepreneurs can be successful without compromising their values, beliefs or family and community roles.
