All the details here!


This episode is exactly what the title implies.

Two nobodies from Canada (hi! *Sarah & I are waving at you*) somehow managed to both create chart-topping podcasts. And we’re not special.

We don’t have huge platforms, and our platforms were way smaller when we started.

We didn’t really know what we were doing in the podcasting space but did it anyway.

The only thing we *did* know was that we wanted our message to reach more people and have a deeper, more meaningful impact. And we seem to be achieving our goals in far bigger ways than we would have thought possible thanks to the world of podcasting.

Between us:

  • Tens of thousands of downloads, both listened to in more than 70+ countries
  • Appearing regularly on the charts on Apple, which is the best way currently to measure how a podcast is doing
  • Sarah’s podcasting has been chosen by Apple to be featured for International Women’s Day, and lands in the top 50 of entrepreneur podcasts, while Room to Grow has been consistently featured in the top 200 among in mental health podcasts in countries all over the world
  • And most importantly, we’re both driven by a fire & passion to share our message on larger and larger platforms to increase our impact

Sarah Swain has taken Canadian entrepreneurship by storm. This corporate overachiever-turned-business owner traded in her cushy job, management title and 6 figure salary for a dream of building an empire. With nothing but an idea, a growling hunger to help people see what’s possible and a Facebook group, Sarah sought to build a platform to connect and elevate Canadian women. Her mission has always been twofold; put top Canadian talent on the map, as opposed to just a place to get drafted and creating magic elsewhere, and keep as many dreams as possible from going to the grave.

With an unparalleled work ethic, hyper-focus and passion for leadership, Sarah is dedicated to the growth of people and their ideas alike. Integrity and a commitment to pushing the envelope is what paves the path for this trailblazer, as seen by her top-rated podcast, best-selling book and transformational events. Her idea of self-care is being in nature, spending time with family and reflecting on all the ways The Great Canadian Woman platform is changing the game.

Sarah and I have teamed up to bring you this jam-packed episode that is going to give you a sneak peek behind the curtains of the intentions and the work that goes into creating a chart-topping podcast, and to let you see that it’s absolutely possible for you as well.

If we can do it, so can you. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!
