I’m very excited to share this week’s episode with Espree Devora.
Espree Devora recently featured in INC Magazine as one of the top 30 women in tech to follow and known as “the Girl who Gets it Done” uses technology and digital content to thoughtfully connect people in the tech industry and move them from online connections to meaningful offline relationships.
Her company WeAreLATech creates high quality digital content including podcasts, technology and curated offline experiences focused on the Los Angeles tech and global women in tech ecosystems.
Espree is also the producer and host of the Women in Tech Podcast. Women In Tech shares stories of ‘actionable empowerment'. Listeners walk away feeling “If she can do it, so can I.”
We didn’t talk about this during the interview, but you may also recognise Espree as the face of Clubhouse!
This episode is packed with so much valuable insights, lessons and takeaways from Espree about doing something you care deeply about in spite of the fear, limiting beliefs and doubts you feel and learning to love yourself, protect your energy, and be the person you want to be so that you can create the life you want.
She shares 6 powerful Self-Audit questions to ask yourself to help you become more aware and conscious about whether you’re living the life you truly want:
Is how I’m living how I want to be living?
Is who’s in my life who I want in my life?
Do I feel empowered and energized by the people I’m surrounded by?
Do I feel supported by them?
Do I communicate honestly and authentically?
Do I set boundaries for my needs?
Espree’s energy is infectious so I was surprised to learn she’s an introvert. I asked her how she protects her energy since what she does is so much about being around people. She admits this is something she’s paying more attention to and shares what helps her protect her energy:
This podcast is about helping you follow your passions, create goals, take action and learn the tools and techniques to live the life your heart desires.
You’ll hear interviews with women who are following their passions, the steps they’re taking and the lessons they learned along the way.
I also share my insights and experiences along the journey of following my passions and what I'm learning.
A Little History...
I started the podcast in November 2020. I was inspired to do it after hearing the recurrent fear and stress around finances from adult learners in classes about resilience that I was teaching at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The podcast was then called ‘The Financially Free Woman’. At that time, I was very much into overcoming financial anxiety, something I myself experienced after a 6-figure business debt, losing my job as the family’s breadwinner and faced with job insecurity.
Over time, I realised a common theme running through all of my podcast guests. They were following their passions, taking the steps to get there, and possessed a mindset that no matter what, they would figure it out.
Despite the mistakes and missteps along the way, they just got back up and kept going. It was such an inspiration to watch and I finally understood in my heart that the whole point of life is to do what your heart is telling you to do and use your logical brain to take the actions needed.
Since then, I've been standing on the shoulders of these mighty women and learning to better listen to my intuition, follow my passions and use my rational mind to create a life my heart desires. I share what my guests and I are learning about how we're doing this on the podcast.
I hope you’ll join us on this amazing journey!
