  • Encore Episode: Ericka Perry on Manifesting Dreams into Reality

    17/01/2022 Duração: 35min

    Pregnancy can be overwhelming, especially the first time around. Your body is changing,  hormones are shifting, and you just want to know which nail polish won’t be harmful to your baby. CEO Ericka Perry found herself in a pickle when her best friend needed help finding pregnancy and beauty products, but there was not one place where she could simply order a gift bag with the necessary items. At a time when subscription boxes were really starting to take off, she couldn’t believe this was still lacking in the market. Thus was born the The Stork Bag. Almost entirely self-funded, Ericka is a shining example of an entrepreneur who sees an opportunity, works what they know and creates a business for the love of the products and who they serve.

  • The Power of No: Celebrity Stylist & TV Personality Ali Levine

    11/01/2022 Duração: 27min

    Though she is widely known for dressing celebrities on the red carpet, Ali Levine is more of an entrepreneur in stylist’s clothing. This mother of two has worked in nearly every niche of the fashion industry, including corporate design at Coach and Fendi, working as an executive at Target, costume design for film, and, of course, celebrity styling. With the arrival of her two children, Ali’s brand now encompasses not only fashion, but the wildly popular realm of “mommy influencer.” She’s also cultivating partnerships in the health and wellness space, has her own podcast, and has been developing mindfulness and spirituality in the most unlikely ways (hint: it has to do with reality television!). Ali shares the vital importance of following your intuition, and the ways in which the word “no” can take on a positive meaning when we use it to create boundaries, making more room for the things we truly want in our lives.

  • The Zigzag Path to Success: Ellen Bennett of Hedley & Bennett

    04/01/2022 Duração: 36min

    Ellen Bennett didn’t quite know what she was going to do when she landed in Mexico at age 18, ready to explore her cultural heritage and embark on a voyage of self-discovery. Tirelessly working odd jobs, including announcing the winning lottery tickets on TV, a stay of two months quickly became four years, and she was ready for the next adventure. Working as a line cook, it didn’t take long for Ellen to realize that, while she didn’t want to become a restauranteur like she originally thought, she did want to revolutionize the industry. Although her now-ubiquitous Hedley & Bennett aprons are a must-have for chefs and home cooks alike, it took a good deal of creativity, confidence, trial and error to get from her first batch of 40 aprons to the culinary staple they’ve now become. With her bootstraps philosophy and wildly impressive, self-taught marketing skills, Ellen bestows the humble apron with an air of magic that helps chefs of all calibers look and feel the part. Not only that, but she also reveals he

  • Unleash the Badass!: Amy Errett of Madison Reed

    21/12/2021 Duração: 45min

    There was a time when the concept of the Dollar Shave Club was revolutionary. Amy Errett, however, was unimpressed. Even then, the founder and investor of multiple companies had that entrepreneurial hunch that there was an even better way to do things. With unrivaled patience, she spent what most founders would find an excruciating amount of time in research and development before launching Madison Reed, an omnichannel beauty brand challenging industry titans in hair color space. With 51 stores in 2021, and 40 more to come in the next year, Madison Reed’s success only continues to flourish. Amy shares the vital importance of focus and discipline, why it pays to do one thing really well, the importance of maintaining corporate culture through growth, and what she looks for when considering investing.

    14/12/2021 Duração: 36min

    When Tiffany Dufu says “I am the cumulative investment of a lot of women who have poured themselves into me,” she’s not just speaking of her own accomplishments. She’s paying it forward in droves. Her passion for helping women and girls extends from her role as a board member of Girls Who Code, to the authoring of inspirational memoir Drop the Ball,  to the founding of online community The Cru and beyond. So invested is Tiffany in the welfare and success of women that she has raised over $20 million for women’s charities, and is endorsed by none other than the mother of the modern women’s movement herself, Gloria Steinem. Across her many endeavors, Tiffany’s goal remains the same: to imbue in women the power of affirmation that her mother bestowed upon her, helping each woman connect with like-minded individuals who raise each other up and remind each other of their inherent power and worth.

  • Learning How to Work with Fear: Diarrha N’Diaye of Ami Colé

    30/11/2021 Duração: 30min

    Growing up spending time in her mom’s salon in Harlem, Diarrha N’Diaye learned a lot. From her mother’s business, started after her parents immigrated from Senegal with little knowledge of English, Diarrha learned about hard work and the entrepreneurial spirit. But what made a lasting impression was the atmosphere her mother cultivated: one of welcome, of warmth, to come-as-you-are and leave feeling beautiful. Diarrha knew she wanted to create that experience for more people, and an internship with Rebecca Minkoff kicked off her career in beauty and fashion. Now, as things come full circle, Rebecca is an investor in Ami Colé, Diarrha’s multipurpose, non-toxic, no-fuss line of makeup and skin care products beautifully designed as a safe space to celebrate melanin-rich skin.

  • I Will Always Make Money No Matter What: Inventor Lindsay Albanese

    23/11/2021 Duração: 37min

    Lindsay Albanese will be the first to admit that she is easily bored. She is also very open about the fact that she was never a great student. That hasn’t stopped her, however, from being a self-proclaimed “hard-ass worker.” When design school wasn’t what she hoped for, Lindsay set her sights on styling – an industry that, to this day, requires a lot of free labor in order to simply make the connections necessary to get the paid gigs. While her single-minded pursuit paid off as she was hired for more and more high-profile jobs, Lindsay found that her creative itch demanded new outlets. Shifting to YouTube influencer, TikTok maven, and ultimately inventing her signature TOPTOTE products, Lindsay proves that if you work hard and let intuition guide you, success will follow.

  • The Better You Feel, the Bigger the Impact: Author Heather Chauvin

    16/11/2021 Duração: 32min

    There is a message perpetuated over and again that sacrifice is synonymous with being a good mother. While there is inherently a degree of surrender that accompanies parenthood, it’s also impossible to nurture our children if we constantly neglect to nurture ourselves. Heather Chauvin understands firsthand how the intersection of parenting and hustle culture can be physically and mentally devastating, which she details in her book, Dying to Be a Good Mother. It took a Stage 4 cancer diagnosis to get Heather, a young, “type A” working mother of three, to slow down and reevaluate her life. The momentum that had built over years of working and mothering had left her with precious little time to devote to herself, something she now sees as key to a happy, healthy life. Through her book, podcast, and personal coaching, Heather shares both big and small ways in which to slow down, listen to your needs and create space for yourself. In doing so, she believes, self-care creates a ripple effect that enables parents to

  • Trick or Treat: How Diet and Lifestyle Support Whole Body Health with Dr. Casey Means

    02/11/2021 Duração: 34min

    Dr. Casey Means started off as a surgeon with a focus on the ear, nose and throat. After spending some time in the field, however, a pattern emerged. Dr. Means came to realize that many conditions treated with drugs or surgery were not eradicating the root cause of disease, which could in fact be managed by a change in diet and lifestyle. Data shows that metabolic dysfunction aggravates or causes many of the leading life-threatening diseases in the U.S. Further research reveals that only 1 in 12 Americans are considered “metabolically healthy.” In response, Dr. Means has created Levels, a glucose monitoring system aimed at tracking each person’s individual reactions to the foods they eat in order to tailor diet and exercise to the specifications that work the best for their body’s unique chemistry. As diseases rise and life expectancy declines, Levels offers the opportunity to invest in ourselves by imparting autonomy over our own health.

    26/10/2021 Duração: 36min

Norma’s courageous choice to strike out on her own taught her to be strategic in good times and bad, welcoming the cycles of life as opportunities to learn and grow, making decisions that fuel self-esteem and self worth. In choosing to honor integrity and creativity above all else, Norma has invoked success in her own terms. Now expanding her brand to include skincare and home goods, Norma shares her secrets to a happy and successful l

    19/10/2021 Duração: 30min

    As a young professional working in politics, media booking and corporate communications, Lauren Wesley Wilson was dismayed to see a glaring lack of people of color in leadership roles.

  • Failure is the First Attempt in Learning: Courtney Rich of Cake by Courtney

    12/10/2021 Duração: 30min

    When Courtney Rich was leafing through Bon Appétit magazine, looking for a cake to make for her son’s first birthday, she didn’t realize that an afternoon spent in the kitchen would open the door to a whole new world. That first cake may not have been perfect, but the excitement that Courtney felt at trying something new, and the subsequent experimentation, led to praise from friends and family that eventually inspired her to leave her job in media and build a business around her newfound joy of baking. Dealing with waves of anxiety and depression throughout the years, Courtney found that the peace and creativity she felt when exploring new ideas in the kitchen helped to calm some of those feelings. In addition to supporting her state of mind, Courtney’s passion for creating recipes has fueled not only the Cake by Courtney blog, but also a YouTube channel, podcast, classes, product line and soon-to-be published cookbook.

  • Fu*k You, I’m Gonna Be a Millionaire: Rachel Rodgers, Author of We Should All Be Millionaires

    21/09/2021 Duração: 39min

    Rachel Rodgers knew she wanted to be a lawyer from a young age. However, when a less than positive experience in a white, male-dominated law school led her to start her own firm after graduation, she had no idea that it would be her entrepreneurial skills that would take center stage. When her largely female clientele started asking more about business advice than legal counsel, Rachel knew she was onto something big. Over the next several years Hello Seven came into being, a marketing, financial and legal service focused on helping women, and especially women of color, increase their income to seven figures annually. Rachel is now sharing her hard-earned knowledge in her new book, We Should All Be Millionaires. Helping women build true wealth by cultivating intention and creating networks with other ambitious women, Rachel is changing the narrative that women should shrink back in order for others to shine.

    14/09/2021 Duração: 34min

    Daniella Pierson is an inspiration, but the 25-year-old founder and CEO of one of the fastest growing media platforms did not always feel like the confident boss she is today. Possibly the next (better) Zuckerberg, Daniella founded The Newsette while still in college at Boston University. She’ll be the first to tell you that she didn’t necessarily love academics, and also that it took time and effort to cultivate the self-assuredness she radiates today. At BU, Daniella started listening to entrepreneurial podcasts like Superwomen (!) in order to create a daily email newsletter that recaps topics relevant to female professionals. She strives to make every edition a treat, with the purpose of “making women feel like they can kick ass every single day.” 7x-ing their revenue during Covid, Daniella is fast on track for her goal to build the world’s biggest female empowerment company. With the courage to fail a little bit every single day, she is learning from past mistakes and building confidence as a rare gem of

    07/09/2021 Duração: 36min

    If years in investment banking taught Cate Luzio anything, it’s that big risks equal big rewards. Cate entered the world of finance without any formal training in the subject, and rose to lead thousands of employees in multibillion dollar ventures worldwide.

Her desire to make a meaningful impact led Cate instead to form Luminary, a membership-based career and personal growth platform and collaboration hub created to address the systemic challenges impacting women across all industries and sectors.
