Nan McKay is a true champion for women. Through her podcast, Trailblazer's Impact, she highlights change makers and amplifies their voices. Purse Power saw such promise in her work that we created a partnership to rebroadcast our Let's Share the Journey interviews with national leaders on her channel. Our website traffic has increased 69% year over year and Trailblazer's Impact has, no doubt, played a role in this increased engagement.

What has amazed me about the TrailBlazers Impact podcasts is that even though I'm now enjoying my own version of retirement, I find that I can relate to, and (even at this stage of my life) have learned from, each of the featured TrailBlazers, especially their different approaches to problem-solving and challenges. Thanks for giving us this invaluable platform.
