The Mother Jumpers
Meet Corey Spiegel, mother of two teenagers and founder of Light House, a new kind of community for women. In this episode, we have real talk about motherhood, careers and the joy of finding work that feeds the soul.
Judgement free....what a beautiful phrase. For some reason, life brings judgement. Whether people are judging others or we are judging ourselves, our brains just naturally go to the negative sometimes. It's easy to slip into judgement, but it's a negative energy that really does not belong in life. That is why I loved the conversation I had with Corey Spiegel, a mom of two who went on a career exploration and decided to create an organization focused on creating a judgement free community. Light House is a "new community of like-minded women who get together to share, advise, inspire and help each other navigate life in a judgement free zone". Her organization holds various sessions for women focused on every day necessities like money management, aging gracefully, being a mom and more. She brings together women to talk, learn and grow together. I love it!

"The editorial team at VoyageLA has a special attachment to our new series, The Trailblazers: Rewriting the Narrative, because so many of us feel that media portrayals of women have been too one dimensional. Today, women are doing incredible things in all fields – from science and technology to finance, law, business, athletics and more. With the Trailblazers series, we hope to highlight and celebrate female role models, encourage more equal and just representation in the media, and help foster a more tight-knit community locally helping women find mentors, business partners, friends and more.

Meet Trailblazer Corey Spiegel
Today we’d like to introduce you to Corey Spiegel.
Corey, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started my career in advertising in NYC. I was immediately drawn to the creative aspect, the sales process, and the Fortune 500 brands I was lucky enough to work on. I spent years as a senior executive working in the entertainment space – Playboy, National Geographic, Warner Bros., Extra, Ellen, Rotten Tomatoes and TMZ to name a few overseeing digital sales, product integrations, social media and brand partnerships. I learned a ton at these companies but after so many years in the trenches, I decided it was time to start my own business in a space that combines my skillset with my passion points outside of advertising. This led me to create Light House.
Light House is a modern-day book club where you are the author and the chapters are your real life. We meet in beautiful, relaxing spaces to create fresh new communities of like-minded and yet diverse women who get together to share, advise, inspire and help each other navigate life in a judgment-free zone. We feature hour-long interactive sessions with a curated list of topics that resonate with today’s modern woman. The connections are genuine and the conversations are real. This is a place for women to share their stories and seek insight, wisdom and perspective. As a married mom with two teenagers, I created a place I would want to go to share experiences with other women who don’t have the same bias a close girlfriend or relative might have.
