ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Amy Nelson is the founder and CEO of The Riveter. If you’re not familiar with The Riveter, it’s a modern day union of women and their allies. It’s a community, a workspace and resource that supports women in building business and careers. The Riveter has locations all throughout the US and is growing rapidly.
