The Sick and Successful Podcast

By Natalie Suppes & Shalinda Kirby

Hosts Natalie Suppes and Shalinda Kirby are bada$$ businesswomen. Both have struggled through their own health struggles (Natalie with Crohn's Disease and Shalind with Cervical Cancer). Despite all the trials and tribulations that life has thrown on them they were determined to become successful. They ask the tough questions, & talk about things others won’t. Being faced with adversity doesn’t mean you should give up, you can shoot for the stars & accomplish your wildest dreams. It is not only possible to be #sickandsuccessful but it is possible FOR YOU!
