Steph’s love for storytelling started at a very young age, writing stories and creating small film projects. While attending Ryerson University back in 2014, Steph founded Origins Magazine, a platform that shared the raw realities of entrepreneurial journeys.
In 2018, Steph saw the need for audio-first content and fell in love with podcasting as a way for brands to conveniently build strong relationships with their customer base. At that time, she pivoted Origins Magazine to Origins Media Haus, a boutique podcast and video agency focused on helping brands create engaging audio experiences and took the leap into full-time entrepreneurship as CEO. After Origins Media Haus was acquired by Quill in 2020, Steph continued on their team as Head of Production. Success to Steph is continuously finding the edge between growth and balance.
During this episode we discuss Steph's entrepreneurial journey, her struggles and successes along the way. She will also share her best tips and how to's on starting a podcast and running a business.
There will be so much value, you wouldn't want to miss it.
