The Cookbook Podcast


Meghann Conter, CEO of The Dames, highlights the significance of personal growth alongside professional development.She transitioned from social media management to branding and marketing strategy during a challenging job market in 2009. Recognizing the lack of diverse networking opportunities for women entrepreneurs, Meghann founded Denver Dames in 2015, prioritizing authentic connections and inspiration.

The Dames aims to empower women-owned businesses, as statistics show only a small percentage reach seven figures in revenue.

Meghann experienced a spiritual breakthrough in 2017, leading to the rebranding of The Dames and the expansion of chapters beyond Colorado.

The online platform created in 2017 proved crucial during the pandemic, enabling The Dames to thrive and triple in size in 2020 and 2021.
