We remain open for business, and are using this time to learn from how people are responding to the health issues in the pandemic. I feel we have a responsibility to educate about this hidden problem and the pandemic has made people more interested in protecting their health and safety. We can help in that quest.

Lady Business Pod: We Need The Elasticity of Entrepreneurial Thinking
On this episode we chat to Chele Isaac. Chele is an Immersive Installation Artist and exhibit video based installations in project spaces and art museums. Her studio is located in a former church building in downtown Madison. She is active in the arts landscape in Madison and opens her space to other artists– musicians, dancers, film screenings, poetry readings, etc– for rehearsal and exhibition. It’s called the Maiahaus Project Space in tribute to her first dog. She is an invested volunteer for the Arts+Literature Lab (ALL) so some of the programming is connected to them. ALL is an amazing entrepreneurial (women run!) project that you should look at! She is also in the beginning stages of establishing a sustainable farm model in the driftless area. “As an artist/farmer most of my existence is about being alone. But now that I’m being ordered to stay put all I can think about is hosting dinner parties. In terms of being an artist in the age of the pandemic…every venue -museums, galleries, film festivals- is shut down. They are trying to make do with virtual events (the Ann Arbor Film Festival live streamed my work, for instance), but it’s not the same— an integral part of art is the direct contact. I worry about art institutions and especially those working at the community level. What will our cultural fabric look like after this? The other weird thing (on the farm side) is that all of a sudden being self sufficient and in charge of ones food supply is something people are thinking about instead of taking for granted.”

Sarah Taylor is an award-winning actor, writer, and stand up comedian based in Los Angeles.

(To learn more, click here.) Sarah has worked as a meditation teacher, energy healing practitioner and awakening guide for nearly fifteen years and has helped people find their authentic well-being. (To learn more, click here) Sarah performs comedy in Los Angeles and all over. From the profound to the profane, the sublime to the silly, her comedy illuminates the paradox of the human experience. Having gone through her own radical transformation, often known as non-dual awakening, and in working as a mentor and energy healer for many years, Sarah is gathering her wisdom and wit and writing The Divine Mess: How To Be A Nobody In Hollywood. It’s a humorous and helpful book for anyone who yearns to find what spiritual seekers have sought for centuries, or for people who just want to take a deep breath and sleep better at night. At The Hollywood Improv she has produced COSMIC JOKE and now WEIRD ADVICE with Sarah Taylor & Friends in the Lab. Sarah takes THE DIVINE MESS SHOW on tour, which is a one-of-a-kind experience that includes Sarah’s comedy with its unique point of view.

Lady Business Pod: I Hope It Really Transforms Us
Brittany Tainter is a 29 year old creative living in Eau Claire, WI and she’s the founder of Giizhig Design Company. She’s a member of the Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe of Ojibwe. She started her career solely as a Graphic Designer, but now her work crosses many disciplines and the list continues to grow. Within the last several years, she’s begun to connect deeper with her Indigenous roots in various ways such as beadwork and learning Anishinaabemowin (the traditional Ojibwe language). How Covid-19 is impacting her business: “As a graphic designer/creative agency, I’ve definitely see a drop in clients. I’m not really receiving quote requests and some of my current clients are putting their projects on hold for now. I completely understand the situation. Most of my clients are small business owners, so their income has dropped dramatically. As a beader, my business has also been impacted. With the approach of Spring and Summer, a lot of events like conferences, artist markets, and pow wows were coming up. I typically make the best sales in these scenarios, so I’m taking a hit there. I am grateful because I can sell my beadwork online, but I think the experience is definitely much better in person.” Facebook Instagram

Lady Business Pod: Educating and comforting through plushies!
In this episode we chat to Dr. Ronak Mehta, creator of Nerdbugs! Nerdbugs was created by combining my two favorite things- my love for puns/terrible jokes and my love for medicine and teaching about the human body. Naturally, I decided to combine both my loves and create soft, obnoxiously adorable organs that I sell on the internet. As my day job as a physician, I feel privileged to have the opportunity to make an impact on someone’s life. With Nerdbugs, I feel so grateful to be able to this on a larger scale and in some small way help impact the lives of strangers all over the world by helping bring some sunshine into their life while they may be going through the rougher patches in life. I feel as if I get to be apart of people’s stories all over the world which is pretty neat. Instagram Facebook

Lady Business Pod: As A Kid, Lightning Has To Strike For You
Amanda DoAmaral is the Founder and CEO of Fiveable. She is an educator, activist, and entrepreneur who’s dedicated to making educational opportunities more equitable for students. Prior to founding Fiveable, Amanda served as a public school teacher in Oakland, CA, where she identified a critical need for access and support. “We built Fiveable as an after school platform, but now there is no after school. So we’ve been shifting and adapting as quickly as we can. Mostly we have seen a huge uptick in users because everyone is looking for remote learning resources now, so the behavior of the market has changed. And we’ve been able to raise more money as a result. But there’s a ton of unknowns for us, just like with every business.” These sessions of the Lady Business Podcast were recorded in April and May of 2020 during the Covid-19 Pandemic onset.
