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 have a business that impacts millions AND allows you to thrive, while staying connected with who you are, add Revolutionary Rising to your rotation.

Revolutionary Rising highlights women & femmes of color entrepreneurs who’ve built thriving businesses while refusing to conform.
