Tinia Pina: Sustainability and Entrepreneurship

I want to tell you about my friend Tinia… Tinia Pina is a New York-based “green” entrepreneur. After 6 years working in finance, Tinia heard a whisper of intuition that told her to pursue “sustainability.” Following her curiosity Tinia educated herself and then set out to create a system for turning food waste into fertilizer for the booming hydroponics market. Tinia isn’t a chemist or an engineer or a botanist… but she didn’t let that stop her. Unstoppable… Because they refused to give up, Tinia and her team have now developed the only cost-competitive organic plant-food for growing crops in hydroponic systems. And the product Tinia’s team sells is derived entirely from food waste. This is so important because food waste is a rampant problem that is only getting worse… Because of Tinia’s hard work all humans are that much closer to living sustainably on this planet. Hot lesbians are everywhere. Did I mention that Tinia is a lesbian? Probably before reading this blog you had no clue that Tinia even existed. That’s the thing… There are hot, queer badasses everywhere. We just don’t know about them. Hot lesbians are everywhere, and it’s important for us to know that this is true, instead of psyching ourselves out in dating and settling and selling ourselves short. For everyone who has a dream… In the meantime, let Tinia’s story be an inspiration for everyone who has a dream. Anything is possible, if we are resourceful and tenacious. Because even if we ourselves don’t have the technical skills to solve the problems that need solving, we can find and partner with other people who do. The important thing is that we continue to learn and grow and follow our curiosity and ask good questions and pursue meaningful goals. Don’t miss this episode of Women Wanting Women, where Tinia Pina tells her story and shows us what it means to never give up and to approach life like a true “power lesbian.” Learn more about Tinia Pina and follow her on social media. Tinia Pina accepted her Bachelor of Science in Business Information Technology from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 2006. She began her career in sustainability as a former student pursuing a Masters of Science degree at Columbia University prior to becoming the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Re-Nuble, Inc., an agricultural technology company headquartered in New York City. A strong advocate for sustainable waste management, regenerative agriculture, and urban resilience, she has been involved in management and business development roles within the sustainability industry for ten years. Her professional interests focus on using unique and distributed technologies to extract the optimal value from organic waste streams for upcycling into value-added products. re-nuble.com Instagram

Sex Work: An Interview With Elliott Endre, AMFT

What do you know about sex work? Sex work is as ancient as civilization itself. But sex work doesn’t often get spoken about because it’s taboo and illegal… So why are we talking about this here? I never thought much about sex work… But I’ve connected with all kinds of brilliant queer humans doing amazing things in the world, and one of those brilliant humans is Elliott Endre… Elliott is a therapist, coach, writer and public speaker, who teaches psychopathology San Francisco State University. And the interesting thing about Elliott’s therapy practice is that it has been devoted to women and non-binary folk in the sex industries. Why sex work matters… When we talk about issues like abortion or LGBT rights, the underlying question revolves around how much agency and autonomy we, as humans, get to have over our bodies. And what most of us don’t realize is that sex workers stand at the front lines of this issue, perhaps more than any other group of people. Sex work is criminaliz...

Power, Leadership And Success With Dorie Clark

Dorie Clark can help you better attract women. Dorie Clark can help you be more exciting to women. Dorie Clark can help you come off as more interesting and impressive when you meet women. This is important. Women are more attracted to people who are exciting and interesting and impressive. That’s why Dorie Clark can help you make yourself more attractive to women. Dorie Clark is an expert at self-reinvention and helping people change their lives. The New York Times Here’s the truth… Women are attracted to power and success and wealth. Women are attracted to leadership and ambition. This might sound “politically incorrect” or “superficial” but it’s not. It’s actually quite deep. It’s actually primal. It’s a primal thing. This is a primal thing, not a cultural thing. This attraction women feel is not a choice. All female animals in nature are attracted to success and leadership and ambition. Females of all species prefer to reproduce with a mate that has “high status.” Because our inner animals an innate drive to pass along the best possible genes to our offspring (in order for the offspring to have better chances of survival.) Females feel attraction for mates who have the highest status because the fact that the animal achieved high-status means they are stronger and savvier than the other animals they were competing with in their “community”. So they have better genes to pass along. That’s why females instinctively feel more attraction to higher-status suitors. That’s how it works. We can’t help but to feel this way, subconsciously. It’s a natural reaction. A physical instinct… So here’s the bottom line… If we want to be more attractive to the women we desire (and if we want to stay attractive in the eyes of the women we love) we have to be ambitious as a way of life. We have to try to always keep growing and developing in all areas of life. Because women think it’s hot when we live that way… Women think ambition is hot. Women think power, leadership and success are hot. Unfortunately, they don’t really teach us how to be powerful, successful leaders in school… (In traditional education they just train us to follow directions and conform to the group. And if all we ever do is follow directions and conform, we will find ourselves with the exact opposite of power, leadership and success!) So where can we learn the skills for power, leadership and success? In this episode of Women Wanting Women I interview Dorie Clark, who is not only a badass power lesbian, but she’s also a renowned and widely-sought-after teacher on the subject of power, leadership and success. During the interview Dorie Clark shares: * The most important mindsets for success…* Easy strategies for cultivating multiple sources of income…* Vital tips for becoming the woman other people think of…AND* A game plan for powerfully reinventing yourself after a breakup …

“The Professional Lesbian” – Jenn T. Grace

What makes Jenn T. Grace a “professional lesbian”? Cool story about my friend Jenn… 15+ years ago Jenn’s friend (who was working in a hospital) started asking her for advice about how best to communicate with various LGBTQ+ patients. The more Jenn answered her friend’s questions the more she realized that her answers were really important for organizations and individuals to understand… So Jenn started publishing her answers openly on her blog. Eventually Jenn became known for being the “go-to” for anyone needing to understand the lesbian perspective on various issues. Because of this work, one of Jenn’s friends nicknamed her “the professional lesbian” and the title stuck. Touchy subjects… The thing is that our community hasn’t always been treated ideally throughout history. And a lot of queer people are easily triggered by being called the wrong label or pronoun or gender, or simply by being misunderstood. That’s why Jenn’s work is so important. The more companies understand how to be sensitive to our community the better everyone will feel. Be the change… Jenn sets a great example of how we can create so much value in the world, just by paying attention to the questions being asked and the requests being made around us. Opportunities truly are everywhere, if we are open enough to notice and satisfy unmet needs. Notice and satisfy unmet needs… Today Jenn runs a publishing company. Because after writing 4 of her own books, her friends and colleagues started approaching her, asking for advice on how they too could get their books published. Once again, noticing that there was an unmet need, Jenn started first by teaching people how to publish their own books, and then later taking the opportunity further by starting her own publishing company. Don’t miss the interview. In this episode of Women Wanting Women Jenn T. Grace shares her insights from over a decade of educating the biggest companies in the country on how to better serve LGBTQ customers, strategies for how (and why) to organize your ideas into book format, and perspectives on her gay marriage, gay divorce and new life as a single mom… Learn more about Jenn T. Grace and follow her online… Jenn T. Grace is a nationally recognized business strategist, speaker and author specializing in the LGBTQ market. Guided by the mantra, “change happens in business,” Jenn believes social change happens first in the workplace before spilling over into mainstream society. She is an Amazon Best Selling author and has been featured in Forbes, The Huffington Post, The Hartford Courant and on CNBC.

Practical Steps To Build Radical Self-Love With Coco McKenzi

Anyone can achieve self-love, but it takes work… “Self-love” is one of those terms that get thrown around a lot (especially in relationship advice blogs!) But what does self-love actually mean, in practice? How would you treat your soulmate? Without self-love it’s harder for us to be as kind and good to ourselves as we’d be to the woman we love. Love is about showing up consistently and working through conflicts and forgiving mistakes and imperfections… All of that takes time and attention and care. These are things we do for the women we love, when we want to build a partnership… But when we make the choice to consistently show up for ourselves (the way we would for the woman of our dreams) that’s when self-love can start to grow, even if it wasn’t there before. The problem is that most of us wouldn’t even know where to begin… How to build self-love brick-by-brick (even in a place where it didn’t exist before…) For most of us self-love isn’t automatic. Most of us weren’t raised in environments where self-love was the “norm” and for most of us it wasn’t “modeled” by our caretakers or neighbors. Self-love can feel impossible when we’ve never had it. But it’s not impossible. Self-love can be generated from nothing. So what are the actual steps to create self-love from scratch? Well it turns out that generating self-love takes practice. It takes repetition of purposeful, ritualized practices… And in this episode of Women Wanting Women I interview Coco McKenzi, who teaches exactly what some of those practices are. Because, as Coco explains, we are our own greatest healers. “We are our own greatest healers…” Coco McKenzi has been to hell and back. (*trigger warning*) She was forced to learn what she knows about self-love after being raped and left without any support for how to heal from the relentless emotional and psychosomatic pain that nearly tore her apart in the aftermath. Coco set out on a mission to figure out how to actually heal from sexual trauma because she realized she would otherwise suffer the rest of her life in unyielding, unbearable pain. In this podcast episode Coco shares her story and teaches specific actions that really work for building self-love, regardless of what we’ve been through or how we feel about ourselves. Learn more about Coco McKenzi and follow her on social media: Coco McKenzi’s mission is to educate, empower, and create a positive impact around the world with a foundation of integrity, bravery, and true love. Coco’s work is to help people heal from confusion and suffering to radical joy and pure fulfillment. You can learn more about her workshops, courses and coaching at The McKenzi Institute Instagram

Curve Magazine and Lesbian Lifestyle With Merryn Johns

Most queer women have already heard of Curve Magazine… In this episode of Women Wanting Women I interview Merryn Johns, the editor-in-chief of Curve magazine. Lesbian Lifestyle… Curve is a lifestyle brand. But from their perspective, lifestyles are, by nature, political. The goal is to point towards an ideal and help create a vision of what it means, as LGBTQ+ women, to live our best lives. Their purpose is to be a window that shows us, as queer women, what living our best lives can look like, while encouraging us to reach for it. Curve’s role is to hold a space that gets continually filled with images and stories that reinforce our identities and our culture as we’re making it together as LGBTQ+ women. That’s what Merryn Johns believes her mission is as the editor-in-chief of Curve magazine. But from Curve’s perspective, lifestyles are, by nature, political.

Lesbian Chat: Talking About Eating Disorders (Including My Own) With Dr. Cheryl Kornfeld

Did you know that I had an eating disorder in high school and college? It turns out that it’s not uncommon for closeted women to suffer from eating disorders before coming out… In fact, people can subconsciously “use” eating disorders as a way to disconnect and dissociate from the body. Did I have an eating disorder because I was suppressing my sexuality? Perhaps. I’m also lucky because my condition was minor compared to how severe eating disorders can get, when they’re extreme. But even though my eating disorder wasn’t extreme, I still struggled with it for many years. And in this episode of Women Wanting Women I open up about what I went through and some things that helped me heal from it. I’m not an expert on eating disorders… Obviously, I’m not an expert on eating disorders. So everything I say in this episode (even when I sound strong-minded and sure about things) is just my own personal opinion about what I believe worked for me. Nothing I say in the interview should...

Jordana Michelle: Reflecting On This Lesbian Podcast

Why create a lesbian podcast? There are lots of podcasts about how we, as humans, can increase our personal power, but it was important to me to create a lesbian podcast on this topic, because not all advice applies to us, as queer women, the same way it applies to typical straight people. Some of the challenges we face in our lives, as queer women, are different from the challenges faced by straight women and straight men. And in some cases, even if we are facing the same challenges as straight men and women, the best solutions for solving those challenges will be different for us as queer women than they are for straight people. That’s why I felt there needed to be a lesbian podcast that could address the questions of pursuing success and overcoming challenges from the queer female perspective. This isn’t the only lesbian podcast… No, this isn’t the only lesbian podcast. But Women Wanting Women is unique because it’s a lesbian podcast specifically focused on how we, as queer ...

Living Your Truth And Overcoming Shame With Primavera Salva

Meet Primavera Salva. In this episode of Women Wanting Women I invite my friend, Primavera Salva, to tell us the beautiful love story of how she and her wife met and fell in love and built their life together. Who doesn’t like a good love story? Primavera was diplomat from Mexico and her wife, Katia, was a banker from Lebanon. Neither of them knew they were lesbians when they met in New York City in the early 1990’s. Primavera and Katia met during a time before being gay was considered normal, even in New York City. But most certainly, a woman falling in love with another woman was unthinkable in Mexican and Lebanese culture at that moment. Healing from shame and living your truth… Primavera’s shame was so deep that she could hardly recognize the intense soulmate connection she felt with Katia. Primavera was so afraid of her deep love for Katia that she set off on a long journey of self-discovery and finding her truth before she could join her beloved in partnership. And on this...

Surviving And Thriving After An Affair: With Melissa Davis

What do you do if/when you find out the person you love is having an affair? The discovery of a partner’s affair can be traumatic and heartbreaking and earth-shattering. But unfortunately a lot of women have partners who cheat. Melissa Davis, my guest on this episode of Women Wanting Women, thought she had the perfect life… She married her college sweetheart and they had two baby girls (a 3-year old and a newborn infant) when she found out her husband was having an affair with her best friend. What could be more maddening than that? But Melissa emerged from the torment and heartbreak and shame with a purpose. Creating value out of our own pain… Melissa took everything she learned from her experience healing from her husband’s affair and joined forces with two other psychologists (one of whom also had a cheating husband) and together they created an online affair recovery program to help other women who find themselves in the same situation. I really resonate with Melissa’s miss...
