CEO & Founder of Podopolo, a growing podcast network uniquely enabling podcasters to know, grow and monetize content with community engagement, I’m an acknowledged expert and visionary in all things content, community, viral impact, crowd-sourcing and tech. I host two podcasts: Wings Of Inspired Business and 10XTogether: Couplepreneurs. My mission with WINGS is to “”lift as I climb”” and invest $10m+ over 10 years in women-founded businesses.

“Wings has been one of the most amazing life-changing experiences of my life…

Little did I know that it would actually change the way I think about myself, about community, about business, about what’s possible for me, the impact I can have in the world. I’m blown away. Melinda and Amy exhibited such beautiful collaborative leadership and inspired me beyond my wildest dreams.”

Isabelle Tierney

Creator of “The Feel Good Life"

“The Wings of Empowered Women retreat is truly transformational. I came expecting to learn, and it was beyond learning, it was enlightenment. I go to conferences once a month. This was more than that. It’s a community and I feel a great sense of connection to what I’ve learned and women that I’ve been working with. Each are amazing in their own right, and we all came together with an open heart and an open mind into this community and it’s amazing to see what’s happened over the course of just a few days.”

Marybeth Wooton

Founder & CEO, DuelGood + Berico Technologies

“It was magical and I was expanded beyond what I ever expected. This is a wonderful retreat. You need to be here, you need to be open and you will receive amazing experiences. I learned how to manifest in a way I’ve never learned knew how to manifest. Everyone has been generous and we made fabulous, long life connections.”

Rosie Aiello

Transformational Leader, Love is Kind Network

“In business we can get tunnel vision and we get together with other women that have very different businesses, we learn different strategies and different things, plus to take time apart to kind of create some white space to be able to create time to reflect, to take care of ourselves, do some spa. The Wings retreat is refreshing, revitalizing and impactful for you and your business.”

Christy Whitman

CEO, Christy Whitman International & NYT Bestselling Author

“I highly recommend Wings of the Empowered Woman. Every single woman embodies the hashtag “lift as we climb” … it was such a place of love, of empowerment, of support to give you and your business the quantum leap to be as successful as possible. Everything was empowering, everything was uplifting, everything was enlightening. It’s a great combination of specific business skills … with a fantastic injection of inspiration to become the channel, the conduit so that we can play a much bigger game to raise the level of the planet.”

Natalie Ledwell

Co-Founder, Mind Movies

“It is from the bottom of my heart that I thank Amy and Melinda for my “Wings”. I was hesitant and nervous to come and I think it’s one the best decisions I’ve made in the past 5 years. The value from the content alone is dramatically impacting both the amount of revenue my company brings in and how much I sell it for. This is the best I’ve ever seen in my life. And, the level of relationships that I’ve been able to forge with other incredible women will explode my business, my mind set, my energy, my motivation, my belief in myself to accomplish my really big goals.”
