Artemis joins me today to share the evolution story behind Cadence Rx and her journey of becoming a female entrepreneur. She explains the importance of focusing on building and nurturing our skills as female founders and avoiding the temptation of labeling ourselves. She explains why it’s critical for women entrepreneurs to seek advice and counsel from other women in business.
