Podcast #204 // Liz Bohannon on Sseko Designs

September 12th, 2017 Posted by Podcast, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #204 // Liz Bohannon on Sseko Designs”

Today’s guest is Liz Bohannon, founder of Sseko Designs, an ethical fashion brand that is using fashion and design to help bright & brave young women in East Africa continue on to university. To date we’ve enabled 87 women in Uganda to go to college, pursue their dreams and become change makers in their communities. Upon graduating college, Liz moved to Uganda to assist in the communications efforts for a youth development organization based in Kampala. While there, Liz met an incredible group of talented young women who were struggling to finance their education. She wanted to find a way to help them attend university, and that’s how Sseko was born.

In this episode we chat about how Liz changed directions from journalism to entrepreneur, her ups and downs along the way, and how she created a socially responsible company. Using her unlikely story of a journalist-gone-shoemaker, Liz shares her passion for social enterprise, conscious consumerism, social justice, creative leadership, gender equity, risk-taking, and empowering women. She believes deeply that business is a powerful platform for social change and that girls are our future.

Podcast #203 // Mini Episode on Mindfulness

September 7th, 2017 Posted by Podcast, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #203 // Mini Episode on Mindfulness”

Today’s mini episode is all about mindfulness! I decided to dedicate the month of September to mindfulness since this month has all those fresh-start feels. I’m also following along with a Mindful30 Challenge from mindful.org, so the time felt right to think about the present moment!

And that’s what mindfulness is all about: allowing all those passing thoughts to pass on by like clouds in the sky and keep a focus on what you’re doing right this moment. In this mini episode I’m sharing why mindfulness is important for me, and how it helps me stay happy and less anxious. I also share a mantra I love and two breaths I like to practice.

Do you practice mindfulness? Do you have a mantra? Or a favorite breath?
