The pod has its issues, which is extremely frustrating because it has great guests!! Sophia has lost sight of her listeners and what we value. it doesn’t sound like she does much research on her guests vs. other pods and the most irritating thing is her unconversational approach to interviewing - she’s robotic and almost generic with her questions and will abruptly move on to the next question when her guests are about to land on something SO GOOD! This tends to happen on episodes where the research isn’t there on her guest/their industry. That, plus SO many ads makes it very lacking in substance. They talk a lot about *pivoting* and listening to audiences here, so please, GB Radio team. Pivot!

So life-giving

How to turn connections into business, with Emma Grede, co-founder and CEO of Good American

Podcast cover
Read more

After years of working in the fashion industry, Emma Grede felt exhausted by the lack of diversity on runways, in ads, and behind the scenes. When she had the brilliant idea for Good American, a size-inclusive fashion brand, she brought her pitch directly to Khloe Kardashian, who shared in her desire to truly diversify the fashion world and mediascape. In 2016, they launched their brand with a wide array of sizes, and have continued to put their money where their morals are with diverse campaigns. This week on Girlboss Radio, Grede talks about creating the pitch that changed her life, the future of the fashion industry, and scaling a company while keeping her values at the heart of it all.

How to ask for what you want—and get it, with Amy Pascal, film producer and business executive

Podcast cover
Read more

Ah, imposter syndrome. Many of us know it as more than just a buzzword—we know it to be a very real experience of feeling unqualified, unprepared, and unworthy, despite all evidence to the contrary. While nearly 70 percent of all people experience imposter syndrome in their lives according to The Journal of Behavioral Science, it's a hot button issue for women in the workplace in particular, who have more access to male-dominated industries, high-ranking positions, and financial power than ever before. This week, on GirlbossRadio, we hear from business executive and film producer Amy Pascal (she's behind some of your fave female-centric films including Little Women and the 2016 Ghostbusters remake) on how to not feel like a fake when you *are* the real deal. Plus, hear exactly how to ask for more money at any job, how you can elevate other women in your industry, and when you know it's time to walk away. Tune in for plenty of work wisdom, wherever you listen to podcasts.

I’ve listened to so many episodes, but...

By Kristeeeeeenzuhhhh - May 05 2020

The pod has its issues, which is extremely frustrating because it has great guests!! Sophia has lost sight of her listeners and what we value. it doesn’t sound like she does much research on her guests vs. other pods and the most irritating thing is her unconversational approach to interviewing - she’s robotic and almost generic with her questions and will abruptly move on to the next question when her guests are about to land on something SO GOOD! This tends to happen on episodes where the research isn’t there on her guest/their industry. That, plus SO many ads makes it very lacking in substance. They talk a lot about *pivoting* and listening to audiences here, so please, GB Radio team. Pivot!

So life-giving

I started a business last year and it helped me fail forward into a new business idea that aligned with what I want. Listening to this show is so refreshing. I don’t know any woman-bosses personally do this is a luxury to be able to ask all the questions I would want to ask. I’m learning so much on the way. So blessed to listen. Thank you for being so awesome!
