Episode Description

Now as CEO of her own business she has been going strong for more than 10 years. Learn how Renae had the tenacity to build her dream.

Go For It!

Go For It!

Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Go For It! is an empowerment, leadership and business strategy radio show for people of all ages. I am passionate about helping people start businesses – especially women. Businesses should be considered more than just a hobby. Women need to feel empowered that they can withstand the grudging day to day life of starting and running a business and do it successfully. Teaching valuable time saving methods, marketing strategies and practices of starting and running a successful business is the purpose of this show. I do this through my amazing guests, life experiences, stories and I teach you to live in a positive light.

I want to be able to give hope and teach perseverance to people starting and running businesses. Too often people get stuck after they start a business and need the guidance to keep moving forward. Laughter is also a big part of this thing we call life. Laugh through the good times and bad but keep pushing forward to your dreams.

Khadija Ali


Khadija Ali is a coach, motivational speaker and author. Her passion for helping women evolve and transform their lives stems from triumphing over tragedy in her own life. In 2007, she found herself a single mom to five children after losing her husband to colon cancer. Overnight, she had to figure out how to settle her husband's estate and find housing for her and her five children. It was a wake up call for this newly widowed woman! In 2012, Khadija asked ten other young widows to write a book about their experiences. Only two widows, Maureen Bobo and Chasity Williams, continued on with the book, "The Unwelcome Committee". The book is not only significant to losing a spouse, but to comprehend and grasp the outlook of grief overall. She is also co-director of Hope For Widows Foundation, an organization designed to assist widowed women in finding solace after loss. When Khadija is not coaching, speaking, or writing, she hosts 'Evolutionary Woman Radio' on Blog Talk Mondays and Thursdays. View Guest page

Brad Finkeldei


“Life’s too short to NOT to live the life you dreamed of” I did everything you were supposed to do in order to live the American dream. Good grades – check, amazing job – check, climbing up the corporate ladder – check, big house and 6 carts full of IKEA products to fill up that house, check…check. But something was still missing – CONFIDENCE. I felt so limited by my job and the lifestyle I was living and didn't feel confident in who I was.
When I really dug deep I found the common thread in my life was helping others. I kept finding I wanted to help others change their lives. I found real satisfaction in coaching others to be more confident in who they are so they can achieve their own goals. I realized I wanted to give back to others what my Life coach gave me. Confidence in myself to change my life. I help love helping people develop a plan to change their life. I’m a firm believer that what you think about you bring about and I was thinking about helping others all the time. View Guest page
