The Ladies Lounge


Anna Massie and Emma Franklin Bell invite you into The Ladies Lounge to listen in as guests confess the truth and reveal what made them want to be their own boss and what drove them to jump ship from the life they were living into the often daunting and unpredictable road less traveled - entrepreneurial life.

In up-close-and-personal candid conversations, inspirational and empowering ladies uncover the raw truth behind their business and their beginnings.

Emma and Anna ask those penetrating questions we all want to ask like what was the catalyst for making the shift to business? What were the breakthroughs and sometimes breakdowns that got you to where you are now? And how have you faced your fears and broken through them?

This riveting and thrilling show dissects and dares to open up about the life you create as a modern-day lady in business and how the integration and harmonious intersection of life and business is now paving the way for the new wave of women in business.
