Helping Women Find Success

Episode 733 | 09.13.23

It’s not easy for women to find their voice or to find their place in the business community.

Today’s guests discuss how they have broken through.

Lauren Marsicano is an attorney, who overcame depression and thoughts of suicide from bullying because of her “size”.

She’s created an organization and conference to help female founders kickstart their business.

Lauren’s women for success is holding her third annual female founders forum September 20-22.

Xenia Marcinko will also be joining us. She is one of Lauren’s successes.

Xenia immigrated to Miami from Venezuela in 2017.

She spoke limited English. Xenia has gone from a person that was uncomfortable speaking in public making presentations to partnering with Bank of America and she helps others connect their brands with people.

This will be an extraordinarily motivating and informative episode.

Xenia Marcinko

The Magus Films

Xenia Marcinko grew up in Venezuela, creating a video production company around 2011 in Caracas. Due to the political and economic situation, she immigrated to Miami in 2017 and setup shop. At first, she struggled with networking and public speaking because she was embarrassed about her accent when speaking English. Her insecurities prevented her from fully stepping into her magic, and this past year, she joined The Women for Success Business Shower Incubator program. One of our program days for the incubator focused on public speaking, and during that day, the instructor chose Xenia and WFS sponsored her for a week-long seminar in public speaking. Our founder, Lauren, and the instructor worked with Xenia that week on her story and pitch, and just a few short weeks later, Xenia used that story and pitch to secure a $50,000.00 investment from Bank of America. Now, she’s found her voice and helps others connect their brand with people.

Through Women for Sucess programs, we strive to help one person every day, no matter how big or small. It is through these daily actions that we can truly create generational impact.

About Our Guests:

Emme Gisele-Louise Benoit 

Emme graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Supply Chain Management, but deep down, always knew real estate was the path she was meant to take. So, she followed her heart and pursued that passion. Now, she is a Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) student at the University of Florida, a journey that was largely inspired by her father's successful career as a commercial real estate developer.
 Emme’s fascination with real estate isn't just about the industry itself; it's about the impact it has on communities and landscapes. She loves seeing how built spaces come to life, transforming areas and changing the skyline. It's about bringing a vision to reality and witnessing the profound changes that follow. This passion drives her every day and fuels her dedication to the field.
      Currently, she serve as the Co-President of the UF Women's Real Estate Society and as an MSRE ambassador. These roles have given her the incredible opportunity to lead, inspire, and connect with like-minded individuals who are as passionate about real estate as she is. Through these positions, she aims to empower women in the industry, foster a supportive community, and advocate for sustainable and innovative practices in real estate. 
      Emme’s journey in real estate is a testament to following one's passion and making a tangible impact on the world. She is committed to learning, growing, and contributing to the industry in meaningful ways, and she is excited to see where this path will take her.
