Dr. Cortney Baker is CEO of KidsCare Home Health, an 8-figure healthcare business serving children with special needs from Texas to Colorado. She was named the 2017 Texas Businesswoman of the Year, is a TEDx speaker and hosts the Women in Business podcast, where she shares inspirational stories of female entrepreneurs. As a leading authority on women’s leadership and a mother of three, Cortney is working to decrease the gender gap by inspiring women to lead with confidence and integrity. Using her depth of business experience and expertise, she is now helping grow 'grandbaby businesses' as she mentors and coaches creative women to shift from side hustler to CEO.

Listen in to hear Cortney share:

  • How she started motherhood as a brand new high school grad on food stamps
  • How supporting her sister who has MS inspired her journey to build a multi-million dollar service-based business
  • How can you build more power in your work, no matter what your current situation is
  • Why you need to “keep your scrappy” while you level up
  • Why she’s not willing to sit around and wait the predicted 100 years for gender equality to happen in corporate America (#screw100years)
  • How having a stroke at age 37 shifted the legacy she is building
