The Standing Out podcast features conversations with empowered businesswomen about the milestones that made them who they are. Hosted by Nancy Graham and Brady Plunkett of PWL Capital.

In this Businesswoman of the Year Award special episode, Nancy and Brady sit down with Jennifer MacKinnon.

The truth is, her first project was almost her last! In today’s episode, Jennifer describes how she not only survived her first big setback, she ended up converting it into her first big score.
