On this instalment of Hard Beautiful Journey, I welcome Mandy Balak to the show. She is an entrepreneur, strategist, and host of the podcast Level Up. Her mission is to help women get out of their own way and build the business they always wanted while forming a community of sisterhood at the same time.
“Individually we are strong, but together we are so much stronger.”
COVID brought about plenty of challenges, but for Mandy, the stress of coordinating Rise while not knowing what the next day had in mind was draining and scary. But sisterhood did not fail her. Admittedly, when the conference finally came and everyone was settled in their seat, the room was stiff with discomfort and uneasiness. Mandy wasn’t sure if all the effort of putting everything together for this event was going to be for nothing. Yet, to her surprise, after lunch, everyone started to loosen up, and slowly but surely, Rise became a success beyond anyone’s expectations, truly living up to the phrase of doing the impossible.
