Stoppppp in the name of badass women entrepreneurs, and push the pause button on whatever it was you were doing. Love, if you somehow stumbled upon this blog post or the description for this episode, it wasn’t coincidence. IT WAS FATE!!

Just like Christina Stembel. So, whether you have a college degree or not (she doesn’t) or whether you come from an entrepreneurial background or not (she didn’t) or whether everyone around you believes you’re going to do big things or not (she didn’t have this either), hear me now: you can build a multi-million dollar business and do incredible things.

She’s built Farmgirl from less than $50K in self funding into an 75+ person company generating $15M+ in annual revenue. She’s not stopping there though – she plans to grow Farmgirl's annual revenue while creating a business you'd want to buy from, sell to, and work for -- because she believes it’s just the right thing to do.

TRFE 220 // Breaking the Mold with Christina Scalera

“Do what you can with what you have.” SPONSORED BY GIRL BOSS STOCK Use code TRFE to get 50% off your first month (only $15) http://bit.ly/girlbosstrfe WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE? Rather than pursuing the traditional (and expected) legal route after graduating from one of the top law schools in the country, Christina found herself building a business as a yoga instructor … and designing logos, trying her hand at calligraphy, learning floral design … and trying to find the one thing that would stick. She spent nearly three years in limbo not knowing where her income was going to come from, going into a ton of debt, and watching everyone else seemingly figure it out. Cut to today. Christina runs two very successful businesses, a law firm that focuses on intellectual property, and The Contract Shop, a contract template store for creative entrepreneurs. And along the way, she’s broken every mold of expectation to build a life and business that she loves. We talk about… Why Christina didn’t practice law for several years after college How attending creative conferences before she had launched her business helped her figure it out The pivotal conversation with Jenna Kutcher and the Rising Tide Society meeting that inspired Christina to use her legal know-how to work with creatives How she’s embraced her fun + goofy side in the serious, uber-professional world of attorneys WHO IS CHRISTINA SCALERA? Christina Scalera is the attorney and founder behind The Contract Shop, a contract template store for creative entrepreneurs, wedding professionals, and coaches. Three years ago, Christina found herself dreaming of pursuing a more creative path, and she started to look for alternatives to her in-house legal job. She explored everything from teaching yoga to becoming a freelance graphic designer to opening an Etsy shop. In the process, she ended up coming full circle by creating a business that brought the benefit of her legal training to help her fellow creatives. When she’s not staring at a computer or awkwardly standing on cafe chairs for the perfect overhead latte photo, you can find her in the woods doing things that are sometimes dangerous but always fun, like riding horses, skiing and reluctantly camping.

After building her business for eight months, Anna Grymes left her Wall Street job, sold everything in her New York City apartment, and spent the next year traveling the world while continuing to run a thriving business. And I ask her ALL the questions! Starting with the really big one we’re all wondering: how did you find the courage to leave behind this career and cozy six-figure salary life you’d spent over a decade building? Her answer had me praise hands’ing all alone in my office and wanting to scream her answer from the freaking mountaintops. So, make sure you listen all the way through for that golden life nugget. I also asked her all of the other questions we’re all wondering (especially those of us who dream of doing this one day)... how did you plan so that you’d always have internet? How did you balance work while not having a consistent routine and traveling to see all of these amazing spots? How’d you make friends and meet other people while traveling alone? We talk about… when you wake up and realize that the life you’ve been consciously working so hard towards isn’t the life you want anymore what it’s like to travel the world solo how to build a business that supports your digital nomad life how to find, meet, and connect with other digital nomads while traveling what the not-so-glamorous and unexpected parts are of the digital nomad life WHO'S ANNA GRYMES? Anna Grymes started her entrepreneurial journey in 2016 by creating a marketing services company focused on the real estate industry. Her life’s passion is travel and she built her business around doing just that. While working in the demanding finance industry on Wall Street in NYC she realized she was going to need a lot more than three weeks of vacation to see the world. So, Anna built her business around location-independent living, quit her corporate job, and can be found running her company anywhere from a hammock in Thailand to a pub in Dublin. She has recently launched a business strategy and coaching business to help other aspiring entrepreneurs find that freedom in their lives, too.

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE? Back in 2009, Tara Foley was writing a blog focused on finding and sharing clean beauty alternatives. Today, with multiple retail locations popping up across the country and an ecommerce site, she’s the founder, leader, and visionary of Follain, a healthy beauty retail alternative, where she aims to create a clean and green Sephora. In our conversation, Tara walks me through every step of the process from foregoing law school to spending four months working on a lavender farm and France. We talk about… Taking a business idea from blog to national retailer Balancing education and a retail as Follain educates consumers on clean beauty How she strategically built and tested a foundation for Follain before launching The role mentors have played in her journey Her piece of advice for anyone just starting out What she learned from her first pilot store Testing different business models early on to learn and grow The challenges of leading + managing a team of experts with knowledge that surpasses yours WHO IS TARA FOLEY? Back in 2009, Tara was on a completely different career path (law!), working long hours, and trying to stay healthy. It occurred to her that she focused on fitness and healthy eating - but not what she put on her face and body. So she started asking questions and launched a blog focused on finding clean options. The response showed her how many of us wanted to understand what we’re putting on ourselves and where to find effective, luxurious, nontoxic options. When the concept won a national retail business plan competition during her MBA program at Babson, she knew she was onto something! After years of hands-in-the-dirt learning both on a lavender farm in France and with a private label beauty company, she founded Follain in 2013 because she believed and still do that no one should have to sacrifice health for beauty. With degrees in public policy and business, Tara's vision, passion, and activism fuel Follain’s growth, and its mission of improving the health and lives of others. Tara Foley launched Follain in July 2013, as the healthy beauty retail alternative, and a catalyst for cleaning up the U.S. beauty industry. Before Follain, Tara researched safe and sustainable skincare, apprenticing on an organic lavender farm in France, and with a private label skin care company in Maine. With degrees in public policy and business, Tara's vision, passion, and activism fuel Follain’s growth, and its mission of improving the health and lives of others.

Follow your passion, not the paycheck. Spoiler alert: that’s the moral of the story. It isn’t the entire story, though, and JJ Anderson’s story is one you’re going to want to listen to. It isn’t some finely tuned inspirational speech encouraging you to dig deep, pursue joy, and forget about the money. It’s a real life, raw, messy and beautiful account of one girl’s journey from dropping out of college to becoming the youngest talk show host in America at an independent sports television network to learning that the pursuit of money isn’t everything. We talk about… the unexpected life-changing advice professional boxer, Evander Holyfield gave JJ starting a video production company with no video production experience why making money the first priority is a mistake when your business partner is also your romantic partner how sitting in NA and AA meetings with her parents as a little kid taught her lessons that still drive her today WHO IS JJ ANDERSON? At the age of 21, JJ Anderson earned the title of youngest talk show host in America at an independent sports television network. During this time, she worked side by side with Mortal Kombat producer and the station’s founder Larry Kassanoff to deliver original quality programming on an international platform. Through hosting, JJ was able to discover a true passion for connecting with others and so she quickly began to take on the role of a producer in order to be more hands on with the process. Recognizing the ample opportunity and freedom in digital media- JJ helped to establish LA based media + production company HRDWRKER with the mission of creating inspirational on- demand content. Through HRDWRKER, she strives to tell captivating stories and create awareness around important social issues. Since the company’s establishment in 2014, JJ has had the amazing opportunity to create segments and series for various world-renowned media corporations and entities such as: NYLON, Juxtapoz Magazine, The California African-American Museum, Topo Chico, and Eddie Bauer.
