Today we have a bonafide #bossbabe and pioneer: Julia Landauer, a NASCAR driver and two-time champion who is empowering women all over the world.

After becoming the first woman to win a NASCAR Track Championship at Motor Mile Speedway in her division, Julia graduated to the televised NASCAR K&N Pro Series West. She finished 4th in the K&N championship, becoming the highest finishing female in the series’ 64-year history. Plus, this girl is frickin’ smart – she graduated from Stanford with a BS in Science, Technology, and Society!

She is standing in her strengths and her light, paving the way not only for aspiring female racecar drivers but also for any women who want to live in their truth + what really makes them happy. We chat about…

  • How Julia (and the rest of her family) got into racing when she was a young girl
  • 15 years of racing experience at the age of 26
  • Going from go karting to stock car
  • Why there have been so few women in NASCAR
  • Being a female driver with an all-male pit crew
  • How parents can empower their children
  • Being on Survivor Season 26 (while attending college!)
  • What Julia learned from her experience on Survivor
  • Dealing with social media haters
  • Promoting Cars 3 with Disney
  • Driving at 174 miles per hour
  • Asking for help
  • Value comes in all different shapes and sizes
  • How the divine feminine has been beneficial as a racer
