Hello Everyone, Women Who Startup Radio is a podcast production hosted in Denver, Colorado. We celebrate, connect, and empower women who startup, women founders, women who code, women in tech and women entrepreneurs. Women Who Startup Radio is co-hosted by Lizelle van Vuuren (@lizellevv), Founder and CEO of Effectively and Women Who Startup, and Krista Morgan (@krismtl), Co-founder and CEO of P2Binvestor, a crowdfunding platform for business lending. We talk alright. The truth. We do our best to be the best version of ourselves and delve into all sorts of things that some entrepreneurs struggle with, and then we interview a Female Entrepreneur for every episode. Would love if you would give it a listen. We're on iTunes, Stitcher and Soundcloud. We truly hope you enjoy it. We're 4 episodes in and they seem to keep getting better. Thanks for tuning in.

@erictwillis Thanks Eric, appreciate the love. @krismtl and I are really enjoying this project. It means a ton when it's well received.

@lizellevv @krismtl This is great. EP 1 is especially solid. You are 100% real and uncut in this podcast and I appreciate that. I agree that we need more women CEOs, tech founders, coders, and entrepreneurs. Definitely understand your frustration and anger that the startup community is "run by 25 year-old guys in hoodies" but I'm glad that instead of bashing startups + male founders you are taking that rage and are turning it into something positive. I'm excited to see where you take this podcast.

@irvingtorresyc Hi Irving -- great to hear that the podcast was valuable to you, thanks for listening. We don't bash anyone, ever. We respect how tough entrepreneurship is and hope to bring light to some issues, and hear from more female entrepreneurs share their journeys. Thanks again for the feedback, appreciate it.

This is fantastic! As a female founder and individual in tech, it's refreshing to come across this. As much as I love and have been featured on many other podcasts, not many really surface females as much as possible, since they're a bit drowned out. Don't get me wrong, I truly love the others and the individuals creating them. But for ladies who don't always get the time to shine or feel like they'll never make it on one, I think this is awesome for them. Not only for the sake of being interviewed, but seeing that it *is* possible. Absolutely love what you both are doing.

I love what Y Combinator has done with the Female Founders Conference. I had the pleasure of joining some attendees at a brunch before the event and there I felt the camaraderie. Great work, @lizellevv. For women (or really anyone) looking to start a startup, what podcasts, books, resources, etc. would you recommend they check out?

@lizellevv @rrhoover A good book is F**k It: The Ultimate Spiritual Way, by John C. Parkin. It helps us to be able to say 'F**k it' to embarrassing situations, to times when we feel overwhelmed, to times when we're feeling scared to go demo at that meeting, or nervous about following that investor into the elevator, or worried that we'll come across as a little silly. Learning to say 'F**k it' has really freed me up to just go for it. Another good book is Venture Deals: Be Smarter Than Your Lawyer and Venture Capitalist, by Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson - lots of the Techstars peeps read this one. It provides a good explanation of money matters, and it isn't deathly boring. Lastly, a short Ted talk by 'Steve' Shirley is worth the 14 minutes - if this woman doesn't inspire us, no one will. Her story is incredible. Here's the link: https://www.ted.com/talks/dame_s... Sim
