#47: The Lesson of Segregation For Business

00:00 / 22:00

In today’s episode, I’m talking with Sharon Oxendine about women and entrepreneurship.

In addition to shepherding the funding journey of hundreds of entrepreneurs, Sharon has her own path to purpose; emerging from her childhood as a student in the segregated south.

Throughout March, we’re celebrating International Women’s Month with focused stories about what it means to both a female and a leader in 2020; the joys, the challenges, and the perspectives.

Sharon’s story is our first tribute story. She talks about gender, race, faith, money, self doubt, health, loss, and purpose all in a matter of 20 minutes. This conversation is full of gems.

I’m there to hold the container for women – to make sure they can see themselves (living their dream) and saying how can I support you?”  -Sharon

Sharon Oxendine is the Director of the Western Women’s Business Center in North Carolina. She helps entrepreneurs articulate their vision and secure the funding required to launch.
