Don’t miss a BRAND NEW episode of The Women’s Eye Radio with host Stacey Gualandi and my guest, Natalie Allen, the award-winning broadcast journalist for CNN International and host of the 12th Annual Women’s Leadership Conference on August 27th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

For over 25 years, Allen has been living out her dream job, reporting many of the world’s biggest news and environmental stories as an anchor for CNN, MSNBC, and The Weather Channel.

She jokes, “On my deathbed, I’m going to say I just didn’t learn enough.”

As someone who has watched CNN since day one, I have always admired Allen’s career. She admits this is a difficult time to be in the media business with many journalists feeling “beat up,” but she explains how networks are keeping their integrity in check and conveying that through their reporting.

After shooting, writing, and producing a 3-part series of her own on child trafficking in 2011, Allen says what now “feeds her soul” is getting out in the real world with real people and doing stories herself.

What also feeds her soul is the opportunity to inspire other women. This year marks Allen’s fifth time as host for the Women’s Leadership Conference. It’s a chance to address a momentous year for women’s issues like #MeToo, pay equity and how to help women move ahead.

Be sure to tune as Allen gives advice to “Natalie wannabes,” describes overcoming insecurity and emphasizes the importance of a good eyeliner.

Don’t miss a BRAND NEW interview with author Sigrid Olsen on The Women’s Eye Radio with Stacey Gualandi. Olsen talks about her one-time fashion empire, her Inspiration Yoga Retreats and her new memoir “My Life Redesigned: Embracing Change, Aging Gracefully, and Finding Magic in the Simple Things.”

Sigrid Olsen came to our attention thanks to Sue Podbielski, a TWE contributor, who had the opportunity to attend one of Olsen’s Inspiration Retreats recently in Tulum, Mexico. Podbielski says it was so life-changing, she wanted everyone to know about Sigrid!

Sigrid Olsen's book, My Life Redesigned/Photo Courtesy Sigrid OlsenOlsen is the nationally known woman behind the successful fashion design empire SIGRID OLSEN for nearly three decades. But after multiple life upheavals: the demise of her fashion line, a breast cancer diagnosis and the death of her husband, Olsen had to face midlife head-on. She wasn’t “forced into retirement,” says her good friend broadcaster Jane Pauley, but “forced into reinvention.”

Now, through her personal story, Olsen writes about reconnecting with a long dormant yoga practice and how she “lost herself in meditation until the layers of stress peeled away and she could breathe again.” Her book offers an 8-step happiness checklist, and “inspiration for anyone seeking to find … balance and beauty in the world.”
