Dame Stephanie “Steve” Shirley became a successful tech entrepreneur before the phrase had been invented. Back in the 70s, she created a software company staffed entirely by women, most of them stay-at-home mothers. We talk about her “densely lived” life, what inspired her business career, and the challenges of parenting a severely autistic son. Please also check out her TED Talk, “Why do ambitious women have flat heads?” (https://www.ted.com/talks/dame_stephanie_shirley_why_do_ambitious_women_have_flat_heads?language=en) and her book, “Let IT Go” (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B009VIIKTU/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1).

Paula Escobar Chavarría is an author, journalist, and the magazine editor for Chile’s foremost newspaper, El Mercurio. Concerned about the effect of the media on young girls, she banned the digital retouching of photos, the use of underage and underweight models, and publishing notes on miracle diets in her magazine. It was a bold move that other publications have now emulated. We discuss how she got her less enlightened colleagues to agree to her strategy, and her belief that we all have the power to change the world.

We talk about petting the pit bull, and the beauty of finding “challenge” in between “ease” and “stress”.
