If you leave the workforce for just two years, there's less than a 50% chance you'll ever get a full time position again. Samantha Ettus realized that, when mothers take time away from corporate America to have a baby, it's one of the most financially risky things they can do.

As a speaker, Samantha felt she could motivate a room full of women, but she couldn’t offer them any opportunities. So she founded Park Place Payments: a flexible, work from anywhere credit card business that increases financial independence for populations that historically haven't had the opportunities to access it.

On this episode of Why Not Now?, Samantha tells Amy Jo how Park Place Payments injects more financially independent people into the world while also helping small businesses. Samantha also says she has been very intentional about choosing her investors, saving half of her cap table for women and people of color. She even found her last investor after pitching him on Clubhouse.

Amy Jo and Samantha also talk about work-life balance, intentional parenting, and Samantha’s podcast What’s Her Story which she co hosts with Amy Nelson to amplify women’s stories. Samantha is a strong believer that, the more strong women you surround yourself with, the faster you can all rise.
