Thank you for tuning in and welcome to the SHE SPEAKS Podcast by The Great Canadian Woman™. My name is Sarah Swain and I am the founder of The Great Canadian Woman™, an empowered multi-media organization and inclusive community that focuses on producing 100% Canadian content to put the spotlight on the powerful and inspiring Womxn right here in Canada. We host events, we publish books, we produce a collaborative blog, we run a book club that tackles tough issues facing Canadians and you can find out about all of these things and more by visiting

On The SHE SPEAKS Podcast by The Great Canadian Woman, you can expect to learn something new, from someone new with each new episode. Producing 3 fresh episodes per week every Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, you’ll listen to Womxn cover anything and everything from business to the environment to social justice to parenting to travel and just about everything in between. There is something here for everyone. The purpose here is for you to connect to, learn from and grow alongside other incredible Canadian Womxn - who have something to say. 

We as The Great Canadian Woman brand and platform no longer identify as being a like-minded community of Womxn because truthfully, we believe that by surrounding ourselves with people who think the same way as us only perpetuates the palpable divisiveness across our country, and globally at that. Instead, we are an open-minded community and we hope that by being here, you feel inspired to learn something new that challenges your existing beliefs. We hope that you connect with someone new that maybe you wouldn’t have otherwise connected with or had the opportunity to connect with. And we hope that by being here, it sparks growth in your own personal or professional journey. 

Most of our contributors are the everyday Womxn. Not celebrities. Not big influencers. Not famous. Womxn. I won’t even say JUST Womxn, because being a Womxn is enough. These are Womxn with something to say, and that is enough. More than enough.

Gone  are the days She remains humble and keep her gifts, her wisdom and her power to herself. 

Here, she takes the mic. 

Here, she owns her power. 

Here, She SPEAKS.

Emily Gough is a podcast coach, business strategist, mental health advocate and speaker.  She’s also the host of the top-rated podcast Room to Grow™, regularly featured in top 200 charts worldwide. After 11 years working in the corporate world while building up side hustles and multiple podcast launches, Emily quit her job to take her online business full time and teaches entrepreneurs how to launch their podcasts, leverage their personal stories, and maximize their impact in the world while building their online business. Her signature approach is all about building powerful, genuine connections with integrity at the forefront.

Emily is widely known for her energy, expertise and sense of humour she brings to the tasks at hand and to anyone she has the pleasure of working with, along with the compassion she infuses into everything she does. After some unexpected life changes, Emily traded suburban life for globetrotting and has spent the past year living in Bali. Regularly mistaken as an extrovert, she’s always searching for the best places to lift barbells, how to be outdoors as often as possible, and more dogs to pat.

In this episode, Emily shares:

  • Why podcasts are the missing tool to massively grow your business.
  • How to maximize a podcast and put it to work for you while you sleep as you create a body of evergreen content over time.
  • Using a podcast to build relationships, establish trust and allow people to get to know you better.

If starting a podcast has been on your radar for some time, today's episode will definitely help you see the value in adding this into your business.
