BOLDLY SPOKEN

WITH JESSICA CASUCCI

Looking for reinvention, real life stories of women, and inspiration?

The “Boldly Spoken” Podcast celebrates women making extraordinary strides in their careers and lives, from overcoming corporate challenges to navigating the world of politics to showing up as the brave, outspoken, and powerful human beings that we are.

When you need a pick me up or a big dose of inspiration, these are the women that will inspire you to be a little less fearful to take action for yourself, and will leave you with the real life stories of how they got the wins that so few people hear about. And couldn’t we all use a little more “good news” in the world?

Our intention is not to whitewash or “light-wash” what’s going on in this world, but to give you hope. We have a diverse mix of women sharing their stories in their voice, in a no BS, first amendment friendly way.

And every episode is an opportunity to support a charity that’s doing groundbreaking and necessary work for women, girls, or the community at large. So we encourage you to listen, share and support in any way you can.

Ep. 27: A Big Thank You & Signing Off For The Summer!

Hi all! I can’t believe we’ve already come to a close on our first season. I’ve been so blessed to get to share so many inspiring stories and each one holds a special place in my heart. I’m really looking forward to relistening to them while I head off on my adventures this Summer and I hope you are too! I’m a firm believer in taking time off to rest, recharge and reboot and this Summer is no exception and so I’m heading off to parts unknown for a Summer filled with solo adventures and meetups with friends around the world, and potentially a new home base. So stay tuned and get ready for a Season 2 filled with exciting talks with women from around the world as we expand our horizons globally. We’re also cooking up some format changes and potential guest hosts so it’s a really exciting creative incubation period for the show. I also wanted to give a special shout out to two of my friends and mentors in the podcasting world, Terri Cole and Elizabeth DiAlto, you both inspired me to use my voice to be bigger, bolder and braver than I could have ever imagined, and my lovely editor Caroline Hull at Wild Home Podcasting for keeping me sane, answering all my questions and making it sound like I (halfway) know what I’m doing. So please check out links to their podcasts below for more information and to send some good vibes their way.

And for our friends, family and listeners, thank you so much for your support and your patience through our growth spurts, wonky audio glitches and tapping into what you want and need to hear. It means more than you’ll ever know.

And, as always, remember.. heads up, heels on, ever going boldly. XO

Ep. 26: For the Love of The Game: Turning a Lifelong Love of Sport into Your Life’s Work with Hannah Beadle

This was a lovely conversation with Hannah Beadle, one of my favorite people from across the pond! We talked about what it was like growing up a three sport athlete competing at the highest levels in the UK starting from when she was very young, how sports were her happy place growing up, and most importantly how she dealt with bullying and those that wanted to see her give up. Hannah never gave up and refused to make the world make her be small and instead built upon that determination, and now, she has taken her lifelong love of sport and took the leap to become a business owner this past year. We talked about how she got the confidence to figure it out along the way at such a young age and she really had amazing advice for both young athletes and entrepreneurs. And lastly, we got into the Wildfitness whole body approach to doing what we are designed to do as humans, and some of her quick tips for connecting with our inherent wildness without ever leaving your hometown or making big changes in your day. This is a PG friendly episode that I encourage all of you to listen to with the girls and young women in your life that you love!

Episode 25:Betting on You Like There is No Plan B with Mom, Blogger, Fashion Stylist and Powerhouse Entrepreneur Gelsandra Guzman

This is a great, fun conversation with my Comadre, Gelsandra “Gelly” Guzman. Born into an entrepreneurial family, she leveraged her innate drive and adaptability to make multiple pivots along her career path while learning along the way. We got into the challenges women run into trying to fit into expected images forced upon them versus encouraging individualism and creativity and how she leveraged listening to other people’s stories as a way to hone in on what lights her up. We talk about her battles with postpartum depression and putting herself back together after each pregnancy and how she bet on herself like there was no Plan B it to leave her full time job to launch her business full time. She talks about how she’s used her obstacles to propel her to create and run a successful multi-platform business while being a wife and mom to two kids. Gelly makes great recommendations for other busy moms and women who are looking to make a change and encountering challenges along the way. She is bold and driven and so motivating that you can’t help from feeling supercharged after listening to her story and if you don’t one, she is definitely the “ Hell Yeah!” person you need in your life. Gelly will light a fire in your heart and spirit, and I can’t think of a better way to start your week!
