• Summary

  • Entrepreneurs often have similar characteristics: energy, passion, vision. Why do some soar to success while others struggle to climb? Would it shock you to know that less than 2 percent of women-owned businesses in North America ever achieve a million dollars a year in revenue? Why is that? How do we dramatically increase that number? What methods and mindsets do these powerful businesswomen have that you can learn from as you press forward on your journey to success? What obstacles did they face, opportunities did they identify, and trails did they blaze to hit this milestone? Each week Sara Roach Lewis has conversations with the ambitious women entrepreneurs that help to form that 2 percent as well as those destined to shatter it. Are you interested in becoming a 7-figure entrepreneur? Sara Roach Lewis is here to help you “breakthrough.”

  • A Positive Work Culture and Strong Organic Growth Leads Canada's InGenius to 8 Figures

    Mar 30 2020
    After being laid off from middle management, Dale Gantous’ colleague showed up at her door with business cards that had her named as President of a non-existent company entitled InGenius. Dale decided to take the leap and InGenius, a successful consulting business, was formed serving giants such as Nortel. But with the dot com burst, Dale and InGenius had to pivot- and fast. Through perseverance (and several iterations,) InGenius was there to answer a need in the marketplace, developing a premier software for the call center industry. The leap paid off and by working with clients such as LinkedIn, Expedia, Gap, Bank of New York Mellon, and VMware, InGenius grew to eight figures. Tune in to this week’s Breakthrough to hear Dale discuss her 23 year journey in business, advice on selling a company, and not only how to get to seven figures but what it takes to get to eight.

    Mar 23 2020

They use genetics to help people reliably trace their roots back to their ancestor’s tribes. On this week’s episode of Breakthrough, Sara Roach Lewis talks to Dr. Gina Paige, co-founder of AfricanAncestry.com, about her 17 years in business, how Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman tripled the businesses’ revenues, and how staying true to her values of being a black owned company grew the business to seven figures. Dr. Paige has worked with- and revealed the roots of- the world’s leading icons, including Oprah Winfrey, John Legend, Spike Lee, Condoleezza Rice, and the King family.
