Stephanie Hansen, host of The Weekly Dish on 107.1

Everyday we build ourselves up and tear ourselves down. Are we really "that good" or have we just fooled everyone? Stephanie Hansen shares her experiences in business and in her personal life; from her strongest moments in building a multimillion dollar business to her most vulnerable when she made the choice to make her cancer battle public in the Twin Cities media community. Stephanie will make you laugh out loud when you see yourself in many of these shared human experiences of figuring out "Who Am I."

Stephanie Hansen grew up in the Twin Cities where you could find her handing out drinks at the Heartthrob Cafe. Once married, she began her journey into the advertising and marketing world. Fifteen years later, she took her new-found skills set and began her own company: After winning the Women Business Owner of the Year Award, she sold her company and began blogging about food and life. She also now hosts The Weekly Dish on 107.1,

It was not always so easy for Stephanie. She is a six-year breast cancer survivor, and now volunteers for many charities that support breast cancer research and awareness.


  1. The Imposter Theory

  2. Going for it: Getting What You Want

  3. Persevering Through Aprosity



Due to her  personal struggles and because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Stephanie finds a soft spot in her heart for a non-profit called: Pay it Forward Fund. You can learn more here:





The Pay It Forward Fund was founded in 2005 by Michelle Morey, a breast cancer survivor, and her husband, Scott Bissen. Ever since their first donation was used to turn a patient's water back on, they have been passionate about helping other women who are undergoing cancer treatment.

Since then, the fund has helped patients buy groceries, pay their mortgages, heat their homes, keep their lights and water on, and repair their cars so they can drive to chemo. For hundreds of women in need, these gifts have made a different at a time of crisis.

In light of the recent tragedies from natural disaster, we also invited Headwaters to join us this month at Encourage Her Network! Together, we can make a difference.

Headwaters Relief Organization is a Minnesota-based, non-profit disaster relief organization that organizes volunteers to support the emotional, cleanup and rebuilding needs of families and communities ravaged by disaster.

Their mission is to bring hope and build resilience to people and communities following a natural disaster.

Make your personal and professional development a priority.

We bring quality women together for great networking that always supports a good cause. Our community attracts a diverse group of women of all ages and backgrounds. We have fun getting to know each other and finding ways to support and encourage one another. You're sure to find the courage to connect at Encourage Her Network!
