001: Coming out in business with Queer Guide Hannah Strenger

Episode 001

Hannah Strenger is a Queer Guide who helps LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs come out in their businesses and own their voice. She is passionate about empowering queer folx so that they can grow their business, increase their impact, and live their life without hiding. When she’s not working, you can find her loving on her two rescue rabbits or walking around one of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes.

In this episode of Square Peg Entrepreneur, Hannah helps us understand the struggles and concerns of entrepreneurs who are part of the LGBTQ+ community. I get answers to all of my burning questions about queer entrepreneurs plus easy tips that we can implement today to make Zoom meetings, webinars, and conversations safe and inclusive for everyone.
