Powerful Women. Powerful Positions.                                                

WONDER WOMEN is a podcast that showcases the female movers and shakers running and leading businesses, non-profits, governments, and schools across the Quad City Area, Iowa, and Illinois.

EPISODE 21: She's best known around our area for giving us incredible food.

Stephanie Sellers is the Co-Creator of Baked in the Village of East Davenport, Cookies & Dreams in Downtown Davenport & Bettendorf, Fox & Honey Catering, and Toasted - a new brunch spot Coming Soon to downtown Davenport.

That's not all. She tells me she still has some things up her sleeve, but in the meantime - I think it's safe to say... She's busy. 

During this month's episode of the WONDER WOMEN podcast, Stephanie and I talk about how she went from a baker to a entrepreneur, what it's like working alongside her husband, and how their businesses have survived the Flood of 2019 and the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

We dig deeper in this podcast, though. How is Stephanie seemingly able to "do it all" and what can women who love to multi-task (or are forced to) learn from her? Stephanie also talks about her experience being a woman in business and the discrimination she's been met with throughout her experience of going from the kitchen to the front of the house. 

Stephanie is not just passionate about food, but about mental health as well. She opens up about what it takes to take care of yourself when there's so much going on and she has some incredible advice for the next generation of the Girl Power Movement.
