The Startup Pregnant Podcast

By Sarah K Peck

We interview pioneering women, entrepreneurs, and leaders as they navigate parenting and business. We ask deep questions around what it means to become a parent, grow a business, deal with success, and learn from failure. Motherhood, fatherhood, parenting, startups, and entrepreneurship are so similar and we learn from these profound life-transforming journeys.
