Meet Your Mentor - Robyn Woodman
This month we’ll be breaking through our fears with the help of our Mentor of the Month, Robyn Woodman. Get to know our coach and fearless leader in this week’s Meet Your Mentor feature!
Who inspired you to pursue entrepreneurship?
Me. I did not like being tied down when working for other people. Ha! See below for my definition of success.
How do you define success for yourself?
For me, it’s freedom. In this case it’s two-fold. Geographic freedom first and foremost. I gotta be where I want to be. Otherwise I am not the happiest, grinning Robyn I can be. And then financial freedom. Money is not a dirty word for me. It only becomes so if we approach it in that way.
What is your superpower?
I have a high emotional intelligence. Approaching situations and people with empathy comes easily for me.
What is the least sexy part of your job?
I started to type bookkeeping and then realized I pretty much rock at that. So I’m going for the 10 pm realization that I need to post some content. Or write the post, or do the thing. I’m an early bird so pretty much after 9 pm it’s over for me.
Are you an Early Bird or a Night Owl?
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Sometimes I check Instagram, I love their story feature (gotta keep it real). But often I also listen to audio. A meditation or uplifting message or story.
What are you reading now?
I’m between books! I love memoir. The bravery of saying this is what happened and this is what I did. Matter of factly without apology. Shiver.

What's your favorite podcast?
How much time do you have? No really. I love Super Soul Sunday with Oprah. And on the completely other end of the spectrum I love My Favorite Murder. I know, don’t judge me.
If you could get an extra hour today, how would you use it?
Reading. For sure.
Do you consider yourself more of an introvert or extrovert?
An extrovert that likes her alone time. Usually in pajamas.
What's your favorite food?
Pasta alla Chitarra with Red Sauce. This is the signature pasta dish of the region I live in, in Italy. And I love it a ten.
Complete this sentence. I'm on a mission to...
To inspire and encourage women to prioritize themselves and craft a life filled with adventure and laughter.
