If you're someone with a big message to share, you may find yourself wondering if your message is too much -- too controversial, too "out there" or too bold for your audience. What if you upset someone? What if you're misunderstood? If you're going against the norm or presenting a topic that will get a big response, you may have concerns and want to tone it down. Today's guest recommends you don't and she'll tell you why. Rachel Braun Scherl, a self-proclaimed "Vagipreneur" is a champion for the business of women’s health and a pioneer in the space, where she has passionately focused on driving the conversation about solutions and options for women’s sexual and reproductive health. She's the author of the best-seller, Orgasmic Leadership: Profiting from the Coming Surge in Women’s Sexual Health and Wellness.

On today's episode we cover:

  • How Rachel got into this type of work
  • How she picked the title for her book and the backlash of that decision
  • What a "Vagipreneur" is and why she calls herself that
  • Tips to be bold and find your bold message 
  • How to be an orgasmic leader
