Welcome to Her Success Story.

Women inspire me every single day. Their tenacity, wit, enthusiasm, power and grace have provided the world with amazing businesses that have transformed industries. Her Success Story is a podcast that allows these impactful and fascinating women to share their success journey with the world. Their triumphs, along with their failures. Their lessons, along with their leadership. And their determination to follow their dreams. Listen in each week as we talk to women in fashion, coaching, corporate, legal and so much more.

Our theme song is Irresistible Me by Cindy Rainne.

Jane Kinney Meyers






Jane Kinney Meyers, a professional librarian with nearly 40 years’ experience working with scores of libraries throughout the continent of Africa, is the founder and president of Lubuto Library Partners.  

Jane developed a network of research libraries and pioneered technology applications in the southern African country Malawi from the mid- to late 1980s on a World Bank project.  She was also married in Malawi and gave birth to her first child there.  During her second extended time living in Africa, in Zambia, she became involved with that country’s growing number of street children.  On her return to the U.S. in 2001, she developed the concept, approach and organization of Lubuto.  Jane has received widespread international acclaim and support for this work.

  • How a good library responds to the needs of its community
  • Similarities between nonprofits and for profit businesses
  • How to support nonprofits besides donating money
