The Nancy Ruffin Show

“It is incredibly easy; any of us could fall into it, into a situation where we wind up being exploited. Whether it be it our labor or our sex or whatever the case may be. Being exploited is surprisingly easy. “

– Shana Pederson, Founder and CEO of Life Preservers Project

We couldn’t be more excited to announce our feature on The Nancy Ruffin Show—a podcast for those who want to power up and blaze trails.

The Nancy Ruffin Show is a podcast where inspiring thought leaders, modern day influencers, & social game changers come to discuss their own personal journeys & have real conversations about the journey to success. It is hosted and produced by Nancy Ruffin.

In this episode of The Nancy Ruffin Show podcast, our founder Shana Pederson and executive board member Maribel Rivera chat with Nancy about the founding of Life Preservers Project, why spreading awareness of the issue is important, and early challenges for our nonprofit including how to avoid mission drift.

Shana and Maribel also shared with Nancy the importance of time management and continuing education for one’s business.
