“I want to leave this world better than I found it. The Lord did not give me these experiences or this knowledge for me to hoard it and not share it with anyone who is willing to listen.”
In entrepreneurship it’s common to wear many hats over a span of time. Jacqueline Smith has certainly tried on a few, some she continues to wear and some she’s hung up. Each of them taught her something valuable that she now shares with her audience via her radio show, You Have the Power.
Starting a radio show wasn’t initially in Jacqueline’s plans. However, she knew that she had a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of women, especially those over 40, who are on this journey of entrepreneurship or self-fulfillment. This desire was bread from the countless experiences she was made aware of, where companies refused to employ women over 40 due to their age. Going as far as stating that they were too old for the job in some cases. Other times they were a bit more discreet. While helping fight this issue of age discrimination Smith was encouraged to write a book.
After going to a webinar on book writing Jacqueline was more inspired and ready to take action. She stayed after to speak with the course creator. What she found out would have stopped many from pursuing the dream, the course was $15,000! Quite a hefty ticket but the dream lived on and Smith found that there was a similar class being held in her community for significantly less. In November 2018 Smith published her first book You Have the Power - Turn Your Knowledge Into a Lucrative HR Consulting Practice. From the publicity of her book the opportunity of a radio show presented itself. LSW Media group was born and her show You Have the Power.
Jacqueline's radio show focuses on the God given power within all of us and the choices we have to tap into it. Tuning in you’ll be introduced to various entrepreneurs who have tapped into this power or are in the process of doing so.
Since starting You Have the Power, the largest obstacle has been getting in contact with serious entrepreneurs who follow through with their interview time and show up. Because the show is live there’s very little room for a guest to be late. To counteract this problem Smith prepares herself with content for the entire show in case a guest fails to appear.
Doing so has created an informative and enjoyable show. While she’s currently on break this summer as she’s in the process of moving, you can check out previous recordings of the show here. When the show returns listeners can tune in live every Thursday at 6pm EST or play the episode back from the recordings. (When the show returns it will probably not be a live show but most likely a podcast in addition to the new “Cast Iron Skillet Chronicles” podcast)
You never know where your ambitions may lead you on this journey. Remember You have the power to do amazing things in life and reach great heights. Just believe in yourself and tap into your God given power.
