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.

Ruthie Schulder




As co-founder and Chief Executive Office of The Participation Agency, Ruthie Schulder reinvented the agency model. Bucking the trend of conventional pay-for-play opportunities in music and art, she started The Participation Agency to develop radical experiential campaigns with brands as partners--not clients. Focused on the idea of placemaking, Ruthie pioneered For Those Who Tour--a series of sophisticated rest stops for creatives in developing markets. Serving musicians on tour For Those Who Tour routes culture and arts through emerging markets across the US, invigorating cities with world renowned talent and giving brand partners organic exposure. 

With an international portfolio of clients, Ruthie’s work has helped multi-million dollar campaigns for Fortune 100s, tech startups, and cities seeking innovation through experiential. Ruthie was named Inc.’s Millennial CEO Rising Star and under her leadership, The Participation Agency has  won a CLIO Award, an Ex Award and consecutive placements on Inc.’s Fastest Growing Private Companies list. Ruthie is one of Adweek’s Disruptors - a list of 39 women spearheading the revolution in advertising, media, and tech. Ruthie and her co-founder are also behind “Let’s Work” a monthly gathering for women to rethink networking and forge professional alliances, developed in partnership with the Soho House. Ruthie holds an MBA from NYU Business School.
