#34: Tackling Bullying in Business with Susan Blanchet

by | Feb 11, 2021 | Podcast

Today’s Guest

Welcome back to another episode of the We Live to Build podcast.
While it’s unfortunate, woman on woman bullying and violence is common around the world.
People don’t normally talk about it because of fear of retribution, but we MUST talk about it.
Women already have a tough time in the workplace and are constantly passed over for promotions or investment because of their gender, so instead of women treating each other badly to cement their own position, they should be helping each other.
Interestingly enough, in my experience, while this happens within the confines of a company, I have yet to see with occur between two companies owned by women.
I have seen a lot of female entrepreneurs helping other female entrepreneurs, and female investors investing specifically in female founders, which I love to see.
Our guest today is Susan Blanchet, the CEO and founder of Origen Air, which produces machines filled with genetically engineered plants to clean the air.

Let’s give a warm welcome to Susan!

We talk about:
  • Being a single mom with 3 kids

  • Working 2 jobs and having to chose which one to quit

  • Coming back to her main job and being bullied

  • Getting fired without cause by her female boss

  • How this led her to become an entrepreneur

  • What she has learned through this entire process

  • Why bullying others is NOT okay and we must intervene
And remember, Entrepreneurship is a Marathon, not a Sprint, so take care of yourself every day, so that you can live and love, and have the energy and the passion to run your business, and to invest in your team, and to find a way to appreciate those moments of happiness.
