How to start your own Co-Working Business with Felena Hanson Ep. 36

Fascinating Entrepreneurs

As women, we give so much of ourselves as we move through the many transitions in our lives – off to college, first job, marriage, children, career path, divorce, layoffs, business launch, business fail, empty nest, illness, etc. Because women are often the glue that holds everything together, it’s easy for us to push through each phase with a focus on others—forgetting who “WE” really are and what “WE” really want out of life.The path to reinvention can take many forms—from listening to an inner voice, to recognizing an unexpected opportunity, to challenging and overcoming either self-doubt or the status quo. Reinventing doesn’t mean devaluing or eliminating all that came before you. In fact, all of the decisions, insights, struggles, triumphs, achievements, and disappointments have made you the valuable person you are—and are the building blocks for the person you are to become.It can sometimes feel daunting to take, what can feel like, a big leap into the next phase of your life, so in this hands-on workshop Felena Hanson will help guide you through a simple process to match your experiences, talents, and passions with market opportunity— so that you may take that step into the next beautiful phase of your life!Where to Find Felena HansonWebsite: http://www.herahub.comTwitter: @HeraHubInstagram: @herahub LinkedIn: Felena HansonSPONSORThis episode is sponsored by Entire Productions- Creating events (both in-person and virtual) that don't suck! and Entire Productions Marketing- carefully curated premium gifting and branded promo items. PLEASE RATE, REVIEW, & SUBSCRIBE on APPLE PODCASTS“I love Natasha and the Fascinating Entrepreneurs Podcast!” <– If that sounds like you, please leave a rating and review of the show!

033 - Building a Female Focused Business In a "Man's World" - With Felena Hanson

The Turning Lemons Into Lemonade Podcast

In this episode of Turning Lemons to Lemonade, you are going to hear from Felena Hanson.  Felena is a serial entrepreneur who has run marketing agencies, been a professor, and most recently launched a number of companies such as Hera Hub, Hera Labs, and Hera Venture Summit.  In Greek Mythology, Hera was the Queen of the Gods.  Hera serves as the inspiration of the Hera Companies. I met Felena in 2011, just after I launched my second San Diego fitness studio.  We were sitting at a networking event, chatting over wine, when she told me a bit more about what she was doing!  Felena was launching her first Hera Hub women’s co-working space in Sorrento Valley San Diego, but was running into struggles locking down her location. Felena spoke a lot of some of her biggest struggles being a women who is building out brick and mortar locations, and dealing with landlords, contractors, and other very male dominated professions – and the fact that she was often marginalized as a woman!  This truly fueled her push for even more resources for women who want to grow businesses of their own! As we chatted, Felena said that she had recently been asked if she had founded Hera Hub in response to the #MeToo movement.  She explained that Hera Hub had been around for years.  Although it is a women focused co-working space, they have men members.  She described how Hera Hub was created so women could invite men to their table – and we could have needed dialogue about business. If you are a woman business owner in San Diego, you must visit Hera Hub.  If you’ve been looking for a women’s co-working space in your town – maybe you’re the right person to launch one!  Hera Hub is licensing new locations!
