EP86: Ash Robinson on the Intersection Between Motherhood, Business, and Self

Ash Robinson bootstrapped two of her own startups; raised over $12M in funding; sold to a public company right before the recession and consulted with hundreds of business owners and executives- most of whom were women. Ash started a company called Purpose to Profit specifically for women entrepreneurs to more effectively lead sustainable and wealth-creating businesses. Now she consults for non-profits, corporations, and entrepreneurs, especially when they are at critical junctures or need people solutions.
