wegg® is dedicated to helping women-led and women-owned business owners to never stop pushing boundaries. To help educate, inspire and nurture women business owners and entrepreneurs, wegg® recently launched the “How She Went Global®” podcast series— an interview-based platform that tells the stories of women-owned and women-led small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that have grown sales and revenues by exporting their products and services. It is designed to appeal to those who want to gain an education on going global, stay informed about new ways to take on the world, get motivated, be inspired and have fun—on a monthly basis.
All episodes of “How She Went Global”—sponsored for a year by Bluedog, a Chicago-based women-owned Certified B global innovation, strategy and design firm—are available on Apple iTunes, Podomatic, and Spotify, and will also be shared on social media through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and TikTok.
