This is episode 4 of the Pam Sowder Podcast, with your host, Pam Sowder!
Pam has over 2 decades of field and corporate experience and was voted one of the most influential women in direct selling. She helps match the daily needs of distributors to everyday life challenges.
This episode, Pam virtually brings you along to a leadership retreat in Sarasota, Florida — hosted by her daughter, Kaye, alongside Sarah Rankin. Collectively, they had over 60 leaders attend from all over the world. At the conference, Pam spoke about leadership, motherhood, overcoming obstacles, and taking your business to the next level.
Pam also touches on the subjects of resilience, overcoming fear, learning from the people that you meet, and maintaining your confidence. She also talks about her experiences with getting started, not quitting, and staying focused on your goal. She answers questions from leaders such as, “What has been your lowest low and how did you bounce back from it?”, “How do you continue to propel forward and grow your business with pushback from friends and family members?”, and she explains what she means when she says, “How you do anything is how you do everything.”
