Are you choosing the right channel?

Have you been missing the show for the last few weeks and wondering whether the  Girls Around Town are taking an extended break or maybe they’ve even been ill?!

Apparently some regular listeners have but there’s no need to panic – they’ve been in the studio as usual every weekend and they’re all absolutely  fine.

If you haven’t been able to hear them, it’s probably because you need to make sure you’re tuned into the FM stream now to catch Radio Newark‘s very own show by, for and about women…

If you’re doing it old school, just make sure your radio’s playing out 107.8FM every Sunday morning between 10am and 12 noon.

On the other hand, if you’re listening via one of the two apps, via Alexa or online via the station’s website, check you’ve chosen the FM option to get all the latest news, views and interviews from the girls!

Let’s connect!

Two women who know all about the power of networking join the Girls Around Town on this week’s show…

A single mum who started her business after winning a fight with cancer, Debbie Clarke works with female entrepreneurs to create financial freedom.

Sitting alongside Debbie in the studio will be Sue Godfrey who, through her business, coaches and mentors people, especially women, to lead healthier lives and grow in self-confidence and self-esteem.

They’ll be describing their own journeys and explaining how they now use what they learned along the way to help others build their businesses and become the best version of themselves.

High on the list of their recommendations is developing relationships with other women, sharing and celebrating success both personal and professional in a safe place where they can inspire and be inspired by what they say and hear.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday, when Debbie and Sue talk to Rosalyn and Rachel about the power of networking, about some of the groups they’ve founded and now run – and about how joining groups such as these can help you on the road to happiness and success.

Challenging perceptions of beauty

After more than ten years working in marketing, global brand management and trends prediction for a multinational health and beauty company, Sindy Kaur realised that, despite her love of the industry, she wasn’t always comfortable with the messages coming out through various media around what beauty is…

“I found it too narrow, too ‘perfect’ and not always something people could relate to,” says Sindy, the founder of Challenging Perceptions of Beauty and next week’s guest on Girls Around Town.

“So when I left the corporate world, I decided to diversify and deepen my understanding around how those perceptions of beauty and ‘success’ affect women on the other side of the industry.”

In 2005 she spent a year training as a life coach and since then has worked with people from different cultures and all walks of life, gaining valuable insights into the effects that trying to conform to other peoples’ expectations can have on self esteem and happiness.

Join Rosalyn and June on Sunday when Sindy will be describing some of the ways in which she has set out to challenge those perceptions and help to influence change.

“It’s not about attacking the beauty industry or the media and we’re not trying to dictate to people how they should or shouldn’t think or behave,” she adds. “Our aim is to open up conversations, to get people thinking and taking responsibility for the messages around beauty and success that we’re creating and passing onto the next generation.”

If you’re an outwardly successful woman who feels like a fraud on the inside or you want to get back on back on course after life has given you a knock or a wake-up call (think turning 50, divorce, redundancy or illness perhaps) you’ll want to hear about Sindy’s coaching programme Behind The Mask too.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to find out how she takes her clients through the steps to shedding the ‘mask’ – the ‘face’ they put on for the outside world when they’re not sure who they are.

And how in doing so they’re able to re-align with what’s really important to them, to reveal their true power and enjoy what they’ve achieved…
