I am excited to introduce today’s Extraordinary Women Radio guest, Kate Maloney – the producer of the Movie and the Movement – We Rise Up.
We Rise Up premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and brings together some of the most brilliant, accomplished & high-impact leaders of our day. It’s about redefining a new model of success to uplift & empower people to live radically fulfilled, purpose driven lives.
You’re going to learn more about it in today’s interview, but first, let me tell you how I met Kate.
Five years ago I said yes to a conference on the spur of moment knowing that I was meant to be there. That decision forever changed my business and my life. We had to apply to attend this conference – as the speaker list was stellar: the CEO of Whole Foods, John Mackey, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Lynne Twist , Ken Wilbur, Blake Mycoskie – the CEO of Toms Shoes, Allanis Morsette, Michael Franti, Tom Chi – the creator of Google Glass, Jack Canfield… and many, many more.
The lineup was incredible. The message was powerful. “It’s time to redefine what success means.”
The woman who directed and produced this conference was Kate Maloney, and I knew the moment I met her that she was a woman I needed to know more. Kate is a visionary… a movement maker and a woman with a passion for changing the way we looked at success!
Over the course of the 4 days that I spent at conference, I was inspired to #RaiseUP how I was showing up the world. It’s where the seeds of my Extraordinary Women Connect & Extraordinary Women Ignite events were planted. It’s where the seeds of the podcast first gave birth. Shortly after, I wrote my own purpose statement that said… “I want to help 1 million women step into their passion and purpose and make the impact that they desire in the world.”
Kate had seeds planted at this conference as well, although as she shares in our interview today – the vision would come to her very organically in the years that followed… A movie… a movement… We Rise Up – because our world needs us.
Kate did a premier showing of We Rise Up at the Sundance Film Festival and also in Boulder this year. The official launch of We Rise Up will be this Fall… and I am thrilled to share that we’re going to have a private showing of We Rise Up at my Extraordinary Women Connect event November 7, 8 and 9th in Golden Colorado and that Kate will be joining us as one of our keynote speakers.
“Business is perhaps the most profound change agent on the planet. It’s a powerful force.” ~Kate Maloney
