A Podcast for Women & Femmes of Color Entrepreneurs

by Gieselle Allen

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
…But It Will Be Podcasted

Throughout history, we’ve been forced to conform to standards of patriarchy, colonization, and capitalism.

It’s time we set fire to it all.

If you’re ready to redefine your version of “success” while also thriving emotionally, financially, and physically, add Revolutionary Rising to your rotation.

Revolutionary Rising is a podcast for women & femmes of color who know they deserve more and refuse to conform.
