Description

Welcome to Empowerography, the premier podcast platform dedicated to bringing powerful women to an empowered stage.


Host, Brad Walsh, having spent his corporate career in the world of A/V technology, felt that there was a greater story waiting.


Brad was introduced to the world of Boudoir Photography and he immediately fell in love with the empowering mission and message behind boudoir photography.


Being immersed in this world and seeing the life-changing effects it had on women helped to reveal his true calling—creating space for women to see themselves in a light they normally don't get to see themselves in.


Brad realized this work was his life's purpose, so he left my AV tech career to pursue boudoir photography full-time. Witnessing the incredible transformations in his clients confirmed he had found his purpose.


Two years later, while working as a women's empowerment photographer, Brad had another epiphany: I need to broaden my impact by creating a podcast.


When Covid-19 hit in March 2020 rendering Brads business in-operable, he saw an opportunity to be a voice of hope and positivity amidst global fear and negativity and Empowerography was born. Brad's podcast is a platform whose purpose is to Empower. Elevate and Educate by amplifying the voices of women.


Empowerography's mission is to Empower, Elevate, and Educate, showcasing real-life stories of courage, transformation, and inspiration from extraordinary women around the world. Each episode dives deep into the personal and professional journeys of our guests, uncovering the trials they've overcome, the successes they've achieved, and the invaluable lessons they've learned along the way.


Join us as we amplify the voices of women, providing a space where their stories can inspire, motivate, and empower listeners to pursue their own dreams and aspirations. Whether you're looking for inspiration, guidance, or simply a boost of empowerment, Empowerography is here to elevate your spirit and educate your mind.


Tune in and let the transformative stories of these incredible women change your perspective and ignite your passion for making a difference.

My guest today is Christelle Biiga. Christelle's journey began with a deep-seated curiosity about the emotional well-being of others, often finding herself pondering the happiness of strangers. This early empathy set the stage for her life's work. As a teenager, she realized the powerful influence public figures could wield, sparking a dream to use such visibility to positively impact lives. Her pursuit of this dream led her to the United States, a move marked by significant challenges. Upon arrival, Christelle faced a false accusation and the threat of deportation, resulting in a nine-month legal battle in a detention center. This ordeal only strengthened her resolve to share her story and inspire resilience in others. Christelle's experiences, shared on various podcasts, resonated deeply with audiences, affirming her belief in the power of storytelling to uplift and encourage. Recognizing that her story was just one of many tools for change, she saw a need to connect individuals seeking guidance with those who could provide it – coaches, entrepreneurs, business owners, and authors. This insight led to the founding of Exposure Maven.

My guest today is Michelle Leblanc. Michelle LeBlanc began her career as a clinical pharmacist in 1990. While it paid well, being a pharmacist, and approaching health and healing from the allopathic medicine approach, was never her passion. She realized how limiting and closed-minded that approach was very early in her career. Because of that, she's spent the past 30+ years immersing herself in learning numerous tools and modalities in the realm of holistic healing, psychology, mindset, neuroscience, stress management, nutrition, fitness, intuition, quantum physics as it relates to spirituality, etc. She also pursued a lot of topics which most people would consider to be new age and/or woo-woo. But because Michelle is also very left-brained, analytical, and logical, she approached it all through a scientist's lens. Those who know her best would describe her as a 'perfect dichotomy' - she loves being able to bridge the gap between science and spirituality.

" - 00:03:20 "Your mindset is basically that set point of where you are and it's the set point of how you operate."- 00:15:54 "I would say do things like reframing positive affirmations or just asking questions of the universe. Hey, universe, how can I do X, Y, and Z? And then I like to add as if by magic,  or instead of saying, I am a money,  I have money, I am abundant." - 00:31:26   THE WORLD needs to hear your message and your story.
