Amanda Tress, Founder of FASTer Way To Fat Loss  — Glambition Radio Episode 147 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

You’re about to hear an insightful interview from one of my top clients. But on this show you’re going to hear a very personal story from me, Ali Brown, of how I lost 25 pounds over the last three months, and it was easier and more enjoyable than I ever thought possible. (Have a peek at FASTerwayWithAli.com)

Since having my twins, I kind of settled into my new weight, thinking I would have to suffer incredibly to get back toward my previous size, so I wasn’t interested in any of it.

But then a new client came to coach with me last summer, and her name was Amanda Tress. I’d never heard of her, or the concept of intermittent fasting, but man…  her business was on fire! Apparently her program the FASTer Way was helping thousands of women become super fat burners by way of her proprietary system that combines intermittent fasting with Paleo eating, carb cycling, and rotating workouts (even for beginners).

If it sounds intimidating, it was at first. But even doing most of the recommendations — admittedly not all — I literally saw my body changing in the first two weeks! And I’m still going strong.

>>> Many of my clients have been asking what I’ve been doing, so I want to invite you to join me on the next round with Amanda at www.FASTerwayWithAli.com. We’ll do a special Zoom call where she and I will privately answer all your questions, and I can share more about my experience with you there. Be sure to use my link, or we won’t know you should be part of the Zoom group.

Recent studies shared by the New York Times have revealed that intermittent fasting —confining your eating to a shorter window of time such as Noon to 8pm—is not only helping people burn more fat, but has other health benefits as well. And when you combine this winning method with the other factors in Amanda’s unique program, you have a killer combo that can change your body faster than you thought was possible.

On this episode of Glambition Radio, I have Amanda walk us through her own body transformation, but also how she has taken her business from the multiple six-figures when we first met last summer to now a multi-million dollar company ($$$), in less than a year.

Keep in mind the fitness/wellness space is an ultra competitive one. And Amanda braved a lot of criticism forseveral years from ‘experts’ who didn’t agree with her program. But now, many of those ‘experts’ are copying what she’s doing and trying to do the same thing. Because it works. (Amanda shares very openly on the show how she deals with and continues to deal with blatant copycats.)

>>> Many of my clients have been asking what I’ve been doing, so I want to invite you to join me on the next round with Amanda at www.FASTerwayWithAli.com. We’ll do a special Zoom call where she and I will privately answer all your questions, and I can share more about my experience with you there. Be sure to use my link, or we won’t know you should be part of the Zoom group.

On the show, we also discuss:

* Amanda goes into detail about making a big decision to shut down her very lucrative digital marketing agency in order to focus on FASTer Way (and her business has grown by over 300% since she’s let it go)

* How to cope when family and close friends may not understand or support what your business is all about (it’s sad, but she says the key is to “bless and release”)

* How to handle others in your field copying your work (Amanda shares what she did when someone literally copied and pasted her program word-for-word!)

* her thoughts on the unhealthy diet plans and workouts that we are constantly bombarded with on social media — and how to avoid them (for example, she explains why eating low-carb nonstop is not good for you)

* How she has relied on social proof to scale her business (she posts testimonials on a daily basis — this is key)

* The importance of diversifying your revenue streams so you can have peace of mind

Amanda and I also discuss why you should stay aligned with your values (even if that means having to make tough decisions), why women entrepreneurs should consider implementing live video into their marketing strategies, and the importance of “keeping the main thing, the main thing”.

And if you’re interested in learning more about a fun, sustainable lifestyle with Amanda’s proven program, the next round starts on Monday, August 13.

Join me at www.FASTerwayWithAli.com to learn more and take part in the live Zoom video call where we will be answering all your questions. (We’ll also record if you can’t make it) I’m telling you, the results can be life-changing.

Sheri Salata, Former President of Oprah Winfrey Network + Harpo — Glambition Radio Episode 148 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Sheri Salata had a dream job that many would kill for — a 20-year exhilarating career serving as Executive Producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show, and later as the Co-President of Harpo Studios and OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. On this #GlambitionRadio episode, I first have Sheri walk us through how she landed her dream job with Oprah. (She explains how it was destiny.) And then, why she recently decided to make the biggest ‘exit’ of her life. You’ll love how real and delightful she is in sharing the juicy details of this story.

My favorite fact? Sheri finally landed the initial position with O’s team when they were cleaning out an old closet and found her resume and VHS tape, and asked if she could come in to interview for a producer position. And that’s when she knew, this was it.

Being the Executive Producer for Oprah may sound glamorous, but Sheri shares how she sacrificed for the high-pressure job. (It sounds like she barely slept in 20 years!) But would she do it all again? YES. Because it led her in the direction to what I call her ‘iconic work’.

Today, Sheri hosts the popular ‘This is Fifty’ podcast with her soulmate friend of 28 years, Nancy Hala, which is all about recreating the middle of your life. The duo are also chief visionaries of The Pillar Life, which offers simple strategies to help transform and balance our lives.

Sheri has been named one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business, one of The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment Power 100, and a winner of the 2017 Feminist Press Power Award. But it’s her candidness about her career highs and lows on today’s episode of Glambition Radio that speaks to all of us.

On the show, you’ll also hear us discuss:

*How the compass for most of Sheri’s life has been misery (misery!!) but how she uses that to then create happiness

* Why her 20s and 30s were a ‘total sh– show’ (this had me cracking up!) before she found her big calling

* How her jobs with O seemed so glamorous from the outside, but they were really nonstop intensity, deadlines, and overnighters.  (Wow…)

* What REALLY went down during the creation of OWN (the cable network) and how they dealt with all the negative news reports in the beginning

* Her transition from an insane pace and literally working in the dark to entrepreneurship: She’s now in charge of her creations, schedule, and desires.

* Her view on life: ‘What if 50 was the middle?’ What if there’s so much more to come? (I loved this and it had me in tears, as I’m just a few years away from 50 myself) 

* The secret Hollywood health retreat where she went to detox after closing this chapter of her career, in order to feel like she was making a fresh start

* Why Sheri doesn’t use the word ‘work’ (she calls it something else very interesting instead)

Sheri and I also cover the importance of continually pushing yourself to make your biggest dreams come true, how that little voice in your head is a story and you have the power to change it, and how you are what you dream.

You don’t want to miss this powerful interview. Head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download it for later).

‘The Keys to Becoming ICONIC’ — Glambition Radio Episode 145 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Today I’m handing you a sneak preview of the content I’ll be leading at my upcoming workshop, ‘ICONIC with Ali Brown’, happening in Phoenix on November 7+8. (Learn more at www.IconicWithAliBrown.com) And I want you to listen closely… the advice enclosed within is CRITICAL to hear for those of you who are beyond the beginning years of your business.

In past episodes, I’ve addressed the online insanity and overflowing market saturation and noise we’re encountering in most every industry. And in this show, I’m going to show you how to not only position yourself way beyond that mess, but also how to start feeling into the powerful next chapter of your career. Listen now to this urgent information at www.GlambitionRadio.com.

On this solo episode of #GlambitionRadio, I share: 

* The epidemic of businesses (and especially coaches) who have become ‘focus-grouped contemporary.’ (I love this phrase lifted from the fashion industry. Essentially it means designed for the masses, safe, average, expected. No edge or advantage.)

* Why disrupting not only your industry but your own model is the key to your next big level of growth

* How beating your competition is the LAST objective you should be focusing on (this may be good news to many of you tired of ‘seeing too much’)

* Why SACRIFICE is the power behind any true ICON of her industry—but it’s not the kind of sacrifice you may be thinking you have to make

* What METRICS you need to stop counting if you’re not a mass market, consumer business

* How important this concept is and how to approach it: Purposeful Positioning > Purposeful Perception

* What my Porsche salesman said that taught me about positioning a brand uniquely

* The second ‘dark night of the soul’ that many women entrepreneurs experience after reaching great success, and that happens right before their true, ICONIC work is birthed. (Oooo… this is a juicy one.)

This is one you don’t want to miss. Listen now or download for later at www.GlambitionRadio.com.

But note there is some time-sensitive information on this show as well…

If you meet the qualifications, I invite you to join me LIVE in November for ‘ICONIC with Ali Brown’.

This is an advanced workshop for established women leaders, and we will be maxed out at 80 seats. Last year we sold out within 48 hours, so if you are interested I suggest you get on the Priority Notification list at www.IconicWithAliBrown.com or simply text ‘ICONIC’ to (480) 485-2664.

Enjoy, and if you like this episode please share with your community!

“The Danger of Doing ‘Business as Usual’” — Glambition Radio Episode 129 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

This is a wakeup call: If you’re having challenges in your business right now, or if you’re hitting up against something again and again, it’s likely from the fact that you are trying to do business as usual. And I’m covering this topic today on this episode of www.GlambitionRadio.com

This is not a time for being “normal” in any industry. And this show walks you through several reasons why this is actually pretty dangerous right now. The UPSIDE to all this is, we’re getting forced to become very CREATIVE in what we are doing in all of our careers and companies. And that naturally forces innovation.

The ones who try to keep following their “tried and true formulas” are going to fail fast. (For big examples, listen to the companies I mention on the show.) 

Plus, do you really want “normal” results anyhow? If you’re reading this post and one of my followers, you’re destined for more than normal. Something extraordinary and special is waiting for you. The problem is when we get stuck doing “business as usual” in our industries, which we learn as we start out.

On this special solo episode of Glambition Radio, I cover:

* Why you have to stop aiming for “normal” as soon as possible, for not only your own success, but your survival. Things are changing too quickly.

* Insight into breaking the rules and norms of your field (and it’s actually a lot of fun!)

* How “smaller” businesses like ours have a huge advantage over the big, dumb companies who don’t see obvious opportunities (and even if they do, can’t act on them as quickly as we can)

* The association I joined (and then left) that refused to discuss how to make money within the industry they were focused on! (It was quite bizarre, but a great example of why it’s important to get advisory outside of your own field, for your own sake.)

* What the disappearing “middle” consumer means for our own personal economies of our businesses (I think you’ll find this fascinating, even if your business is B2B).

* Why it’s time to be more CREATIVE than ever, and a sneak preview of a brand new workshop I have coming up this spring to help you do that.

I know you’ll get a lot out of this episode. So head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download for later).

Love and Success,

Denise Duffield-Thomas, Money Mindset Mentor — Glambition Radio Episode 176 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

You CAN build a multi-million dollar business… simply. And Denise Duffield-Thomas has done it. Her powerful, lucrative ‘Money Bootcamp’ program made her a millionaire by age 35… without a huge team, mind-numbing funnels, or layers of unnecessary complexity.

And today, her business gives her plenty of ‘unbusy’ time with her husband and their three young children.

On GlambitionRadio.com, Denise reveals how she built her seven-figure business (serving over 6,000 clients), and how she discovered her simple, six-word business model — along with some mistakes and detours she made along the way.

Denise has attended several of my events over the years, and I’ve always admired that she does it her way. This is the model that women entrepreneurs are pioneering: creating businesses that let us enjoy our families while we make the world-changing impact we are here to make.

In this candid episode of #GlambitionRadio, we also discuss:

*The guilt she felt about earning more than her own mom (Denise turned this discomfort into a powerful motivator — and I love her solution, which helps her ‘sleep at night’ and grow her business!)

*The realities of bringing her husband into the business (Denise doesn’t hold back about about the challenges of working with a spouse.)

*How she chose one thing to focus on (and why she resisted it at first). This is so important, and it’s what sets apart truly high-profit, low-stress businesses

*How she did 200 podcast interviews… in one year (I nearly lost my lunch when I heard this, but her reason for doing this was really interesting.)

Head to Apple Podcasts now to listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download it for later). And make sure you check out Denise’s bestselling books — see the link in the show notes for where to buy.

‘Creative Strategy Secrets’ — Glambition Radio Episode 140 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Let me walk you through highlights of the powerful content I shared at my recent Creative Strategy Workshop here in Phoenix.

For years—in both school and organizations we’ve worked in—we’ve been programmed to always have the right answer, instead of asking the right questions. But it’s the right questions that lead to better answers. And lead to brilliant business moves. This solo episode of #GlambitionRadio features highlights from my recent immersion on this topic—to help you begin to regain this lost art

It’s increasingly important to be thinking differently than everyone else in your industry, to stay ahead of the curve, keep your competition at bay, and even better… be continually positioned in your own unique category. (And, so you don’t get bored!)

The ideas I’m bringing you in this episode are simple. But these skills have been neglected in our increasingly growth-obsessed business culture of launching big, looking huge, and “scaling up” fast…. no matter the cost.

On this episode, I’ll be sharing:

* How to turn on your creative switch and shift yourself into new ongoing creative perspectives… versus jumping into problem solving (which you unconsciously approach the same way every time)

* Why out-of-industry exposure is the #1 recommendation I make for multiple-six or -seven figure entrepreneurs who have seem to hit a plateau   

*An ‘about face’ in approach that I helped a client create on the spot. It resulted in her getting totally juiced up for her upcoming launch (versus wanting to jump out the window!)

* The creative problem for most women that no one talks about (but it’s critical, especially the more successful you become)

* Why subconscious attachment to looking “BIG” online can be impeding your true path and unlocking your genius

* How to tell if your ‘coach’ is simply a trainer or a true advisor (it’s a simple litmus test)

* And finally, what happened to rocker Adam Ant.

Also, I announce the dates for my next event: it’s ICONIC 2.0 happening here in Phoenix on November 7+8, 2018! Listen to learn more and get on my priority notification list.

Enjoy, and if you liked this episode please share with your community!

Liz Dennery Sanders, Branding Expert + Founder of SheBrand — Glambition Radio Episode 133 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Real expert. Real deal. Real cool. So rare to find these days. After years of running a Hollywood PR agency that got designer brands into celebrity hands, today Liz Dennery Sanders builds her clients strong, compelling brands that resonate. And she’s sharing her story and tips on this week’s Glambition Radio.

Liz was one of the first publicists out there to build relationships between brands and high-profile women, working with icons like Halle Berry, Sharon Stone, Cindy Crawford, Heidi Klum, and Gwyneth Paltrow. Sarah Jessica Parker called her up asking her to dress her for the ballet. This was Liz’s life, and she garnered tens of millions of dollars in press value for her clients. She walks us through exactly how she started and grew the business on this episode of Glambition Radio.

After years of great success with the PR company, Liz started feeling unchallenged and unfulfilled. Using her 20+ years of branding and PR experience, she created SheBrand to help women rise higher – using their voices, building their businesses, growing their influence and shattering glass ceilings and old perceptions about what a woman is capable of being and doing. And this gal really walks her talk.

Liz is a member of the Vogue 125 (a hand-selected group by Vogue Magazine of 125 influential women decision makers and opinion leaders across the country
known for their distinctive taste in fashion, design, and culture). She’s also been featured in The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, Advertising Age, The Coveteur, and on Good Morning America and Access Hollywood.

But what I really love about Liz is the wisdom she shares with all of us, and it’s in her new book “Style & Substance: How to Create a Compelling Brand”. It truly is one of the best succinct guides I’ve seen that walks you through how to create a brand that resonates with your audience and is congruent with the power of your individual mission and style. We all need this.

On the show, we also discuss:

* how big life changes like adopting her son and then going through a divorce led to Liz getting clear on what she stood for

* how the 2016 election lit a fire within her and led to her writing her new book (and how she used her anger to create)

* how having a strong brand relates to having power (this is really profound)

* what your brand truly is (it’s so much more than we think)

* how to have a brand that doesn’t add to the online noise (this is key)

* how she built her PR agency from the ground up (Liz knows how to work her connections)

* the biggest branding mistakes she sees in the coaching industry (you have to hear this)

* why stepping into your TRUE personal brand can be intimating (and how to tap into your power)

* how she batches her days to get the most out of her business, social life, health, and motherhood (the key is extreme presence)

* why it’s important to speak up (take the time to learn how to connect to your voice)

* how we have the ability to choose our thoughts (choose wisely — don’t let negative thoughts guide you)

On this episode of Glambition Radio, we also talk about the fear that I had attached to letting go of my old brand, how when you gain clarity on your brand things get easier, and why it’s just as important to know who you are NOT going to serve as it is to know who you ARE going to serve.

I know you’ll get a lot out of this episode. So head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download for later).

‘High-End Networking Secrets’ (Replay) — Glambition Radio Episode 122 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

In this encore episode you’ll get my best tips on how and when to get out and network in person. If you’ve been hiding behind your computer screen in your sweatpants and wondering why your business has stalled, then this week’s Glambition Radio replay is for you.

You can have the best product or service and a gorgeous website, but if you’re not putting yourself out there and meeting others in person, you are really doing yourself a disservice.

I was inspired to originally record this previous episode of Glambition Radio after attending three incredible events in a row: the Forbes Women’s Summit, the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network event, and the United Nations Foundation Global Accelerator.

Yes, I had to pack, get my nails done, organize schedules, jump on an airplane, make sure my pants still fit, and leave my twins who were just a year old at that time. And yes, it was stressful, exhausting, and a lot of work… with a big dose of mommy guilt too.

But it was 100% worth it.

As much as you think you don’t have time to network, I’m here to tell you that you do. Opportunities come through people. Meeting the right person can change everything for your business and your life.

But you need a strategy for effective, successful networking, and these tips will help you. I hope you enjoy this encore replay!

So head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download for later).

Sallie Krawcheck, Wallstreet Legend + Co-founder of Ellevest — Glambition Radio Episode 181 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

From decades in the powerful C-suites of Wall Street to today helping women of all levels invest for themselves, Sallie Krawcheck is a force to be reckoned with. And her new, disruptive investment platform, Ellevest — designed by women, for women — is rapidly changing what has historically been an industry designed for men.

Today on GlambitionRadio.com, Sallie reveals the moment she knew women actually needed their own investment platform, and why she decided to create it. She also shares the secret behind Ellevest’s incredible success, and what sets it apart from similar financial platforms that have failed.

I also HAD to hear the stories of her working on Wall Street in the 80s and 90s, and how she worked her way up to becoming CEO of Merrill Lynch, Smith Barney, US Trust, the Citi Private Bank, and Sanford C. Bernstein. And don’t forget she was also CFO of Citigroup. (And, in a story demonstrative of this cutthroat industry, she learned she was fired from one of those jobs by… (wait for it…) hearing it on the TV. I just can’t imagine.)

Sallie and I both share a lack of tolerance for the dumbed-down financial advice for women that abounds, urging us to give up small luxuries like our daily coffee. Her advice? ‘Buy the f***ing latte!’ We discuss this topic, the viral article she wrote, and how to think bigger.

On this episode of #GlambitionRadio, you’ll also hear:

*Why every woman needs ‘take your hand off my leg’ money (this made me laugh out loud, and it is so true—she explains it on the show)

*How Sallie reinvented herself from corporate powerhouse to entrepreneur, and became the leader she is meant to be

*What it was like to come up the ranks in the male-dominated industry of Wall Street, and how that inspired her to do things differently at Ellevest

*The fine line that high-performing women must walk when being a BOSS, and Sallie’s advice for navigating the complex expectations of women leaders

(And there were so many more nuggets in this one I can’t even cover here – be sure to listen to get them all.)

[BONUS] “VIP Day Secrets” with Ali Brown and Kendall Summerhawk

Podcast cover
Read more

The topic of this bonus episode is something that can dramatically change your coaching, consulting, or professional service business.

It can increase your revenues in a big way, very quickly. And it’s incredibly simple to do (once you know the ins and outs).

And it’s something I’ve been doing for over a decade, but have returned to them being a big part of my model in the last few years as I grew tired of the ‘launch hamster wheel’.

They are “VIP days”, which are simply one-day intensives done with individuals or small groups, in person or virtual.

I’ve seen VIP days work in all kinds of categories: business coaching, life coaching, executive consulting, fitness, wellness… even fashion and style. And you DON’T need a large list or launch process to get started!

My good friend and long-term client Kendall SummerHawk has these VIP days down to a science, and teaches a super formula you can follow right away. And together, we hosted a complimentary training call where we shared how you can apply our behind-the-scenes VIP Day secrets to your business.

It was SO good that I decided to post it here so more people could hear it!

Come listen in for a fun and VERY content-packed conversation on how to offer lucrative VIP offerings.

Here’s what we covered on the call:

* Simple, low-tech ways to use VIP Days to solve the, ‘How do I create cash flow quickly?’ question

* How easily VIP Days can give you the laptop lifestyle you love, to work from anywhere in the world

* An hour-by-hour schedule you can use immediately for your own VIP Days

* How to deliver your expertise in a VIP Day (learn the 4 styles and which works best for you)

Ellen Latham, Creator of Orangetheory Fitness — Glambition Radio Episode 161 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

You’ve seen the ‘orange splat’ that’s pervaded nearly every corner in America… and now also the world. But did you know the Orangetheory concept was created by Florida fitness trainer Ellen Latham while she was a single mom in her 40s? I’m thrilled for you to meet the founder of this global fitness phenomenon on this week’s #GlambitionRadio!

Orangetheory Fitness has grown to 1,100+ studios across the U.S. and in more than 23 countries—in just 8 YEARS. Last year the company reached $1 BILLION in systemwide sales. The Orangetheory Workout is now conducted in eight different languages, with 800,000 members worldwide. Impressive, to say the least.

But what I wanted to know was, how did Ellen go from training clients out of her home to suddenly collaborating with expert partners* to franchise the concept worldwide? (*The same guys who grew Massage Envy and European Wax Center to astounding franchise growth.)

On today’s episode of #GlambitionRadio, Ellen walks us through the moment she unexpectedly got fired from her spa fitness club job, and then, step by step, leveraged her skills to build a fitness business of her own. And then, *the single serendipitous moment* that determined her future as Orangetheory!

What I love most about Ellen is not only her clear passion and dedication to improving people’s lives, but how seamlessly she and her partners worked—and still work— together to consistently build out Orangetheory Fitness.

Pay attention: This woman DOES THE WORK.

On the show, we also discuss:

*What makes the Orangetheory workout so different than other fitness classes (the key is its individual heartrate-monitored training that’s designed to stimulate metabolism and increase energy)

*What Ellen’s football coach father taught her about building off your strengths versus obsessing on what you don’t have, and how his advice continues to guide her strategic business decisions

*What Ellen’s 3 P’s are behind the phenomenal growth of Orangetheory—people, program, and process—and what they each mean to her.

*Why she and her partners decided to HALT growth of the entire company one year in order to tune things up (it had to do with making sure they were partnering with the right franchisees; this was really interesting and showed how much they cared about the long-term success of the business)

*Why Ellen is still VERY involved with the business on a daily basis (even though she could have easily ‘cashed in and checked out’ by now)

*What Ellen has to say about all the copycat fitness franchises popping up now around America (her answer is exactly why Orangetheory is thriving)

On the show Ellen and I also discuss why you should believe in your potential (and why you need to also attach action to your potential), the importance of having the right support systems all around you, and why her photo is posted inside every school in Niagra Falls, N.Y.

I know you’re going to get a lot out of today’s show. Head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download it for later).

Kelly Roach, Business Growth Coach — Glambition Radio Episode 168 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

‘Nothing is worth this.’ That’s how my client Kelly Roach describes the moment she knew the madness had to stop. She had the launch plans, landing pages, and email funnels for her successful coaching business, but not only was it becoming less effective — she was burning out. Today on GlambitionRadio.com, Kelly reveals how she threw out all the formulas, simplified everything, and created her ‘Live Launch’ model, which is working better than ever.

What I love about Kelly’s model is that it relies on intuition and human connection… and it works. Because although we’re plugged in 24/7, studies show that people feel more disconnected and alone than ever. It’s time to forget the formulas and automation and ‘best practices’ (designed by the guys) and bring it back to interacting with real people and actually serving them — not yourself.

And, you have to hear how Kelly’s prior corporate experience in a cutthroat, aggressive industry gave her the skills and tenacity to build her business.

On today’s #GlambitionRadio, we also discuss:

*Why human connection is the new strategy (and how you can connect at scale from your living room and smartphone)

*How online marketing today is at ‘peak bullsh*t’ — and how you can stand out from the noise

*Why you need to think 10 years ahead of where you are today, and what you need to pull you toward the future (no more pushing)

*How an entire generation of well-intentioned ‘coaches’ are becoming irrelevant… because they’re abusing automation

*The problem with all the storytelling going on across industries

*Kelly’s #1 business growth strategy (this is not what you’re expecting and it’s SO important!)

*And… I pry into Kelly’s secret past as an NFL cheerleader and how it actually built a good business mindset.

If you feel like the sea of saturation is drowning your voice, Kelly’s simple way of serving her clients and running her business are exactly what you need to hear right now. As she puts it, ‘don’t underestimate the power of stripping everything away.’

Head to Apple Podcasts and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download it for later). And make sure to check out Kelly’s podcast, ‘Unstoppable Success Radio’ (I was honored to be a guest on episode 439) and Facebook Group, ‘Tribe of UNSTOPPABLES.’

Claire Zammit of Feminine Power & Evolving Wisdom — Glambition Radio Episode 114 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you feel as if your “song” is still unsung? A calling to BE more and DO more for the world? Even if you’ve already been developing yourself and your career for years? Then Claire Zammit is a woman you need to meet, and you need to hear this episode of Glambition Radio as soon as possible. Because there’s a profound awakening happening for millions of women like us, and Claire is the one who is leading us through it.

Claire got to a point in her life where in spite of all her success, or what others might have thought how great her life looked, she felt like she was missing out on her larger calling. And upon a closer look, she discovered she wasn’t alone in this experience.

Successful women all over the globe were yearning to discover their magic, their unique contribution to the world, become more of who they were, and make a big impact. It led her to create “Feminine Power” — a framework to unlock our true gifts and a method for unleashing our magic.

On this week’s episode of Glambition Radio, Claire shares how to start tapping into your own personal power and bring it out more strongly into the world.

The Feminine Power teachings are serving women in more than 100 countries from Asia, Europe, South America, and the U.S, impacting more than a million women around the world. And over 30,000 have graduated from Claire’s online courses, transformational coaching, and leadership certifications. She is also co-founder and president of the transformational education company Evolving Wisdom which ranked on the Inc. 500 list in recent years and hosted spiritual teachers such as Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsh, and Jean Houston.

If you think about it, the gravity of Claire’s work is immense for our day and time. Our generation of women, right now, is the FIRST in all of recorded history to have opportunities beyond survival. We are now for the first time able to not only create the life that we want, but create one that impacts others.

So if you’re feeling that immense yearning to be more and do more, it makes total sense. We dive into what needs to happen to bring forward the greatness that’s within you in our Glambition Radio interview here.

On the show, we discuss:

  • How Claire came to create Feminine Power out of everything falling apart in her life
  • How to discover YOUR zone of greatness — the key to your success
  • The delight (and agony) of being an “early popper” in the evolution of women
  • The 8 areas of self-actualization for women who are feeling the impulse to express their higher human potential
  • What YOU can do now to finally bring together all you’re thinking and feeling into a new light and new context

On this episode of Glambition Radio, Claire and I also talk about the frustrations that come with being a leader and we have a laugh over how it’s a REALLY good thing to have “high quality problems”.

I know you’ll get a lot out of this episode. So head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download for later).

Love and Success,

Paige Adams-Geller, Founder + Creative Director of PAIGE Denim— Glambition Radio Episode 139 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Remember when—after years of ill-fitting, stiff jeans—it all changed in 2005? Suddenly the cuts were fantastic, the fabric was like a soft hug that moved with you, and we were all now happily paying well over $100 a pair. We have the founder of PAIGE Denim to thank. Not only was she the first female founder in the industry, but Paige Adams-Geller changed the way we wear jeans. And today, I have her walk us through exactly how she did it on this episode of Glambition Radio.

After years of starving herself to make it on camera as a model and actress, Paige sought treatment for an eating disorder. Afterwards, she needed to find a healthy place to resurface that wasn’t in front of the camera. By chance, she then found herself in the world of ‘fit modeling’, where designers would test their creations on a real body instead of a mannequin. It was as a fit model for Seven for All Mankind that Paige came to learn all about the denim industry.

On the show she shares how it was rare for a fit model to open her mouth and give suggestions regarding designs, but it was well received.

And after a few years of realizing her recommendations were making others millions, she bravely decided to found her own brand. She had no experience building a business, but she knew how to design a damn good jean, and she’d been making some great industry connections over the past several years.

PAIGE Denim was born, and in less three months, she successfully launched her first collection at a New York trade show. Buyers went crazy for her merch, and from there the rest is history. You’ve got to hear this in her own words on this episode of #GlambitionRadio.

On the show, we also discuss:

* the history and evolution of jeans, and how and why premium denim ‘happened’ (partly demand, but mostly due to improvements in fashion technology—I found this part fascinating)

* the washhouse process behind what it takes to make a comfortable, amazing looking pair of jeans (it truly is an art)

* how Paige has built a safe work environment that empowers women (this was important to her, as she had an unfortunate #MeToo experience early on in her entertainment career)

* how she has managed to stay true to what she stands for for over a decade (TRUE versus trend – it can be tricky)

* where Paige thinks retail is going in the future, and how to prepare for it (and the importance she puts on being able to evolve – for example, while others are closing retail stores, she’s opening a select few)

* her new website and shoe collection launching in September (and why she’s taking back more control of the sales process)

(By the way, Paige is also speaking at my friend Keri Murphy’s Brilliant Event in CA on June 3-5, if you’d like to meet her in person! You can learn more at TheBrilliantEvent.com.)

On this episode of Glambition Radio, we also talk about the importance of embracing your voice and speaking up, how critical it is to trust your intuition and not second guess yourself, and why she makes it a priority to surround herself with young energy.

You’re not going to want to miss this one. So head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download for later).

Kelsey Ramsden, Author of ‘Success Hangover’ — Glambition Radio Episode 160 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

You’ve got the high-paying job, the praise, the house, the car, the marriage… you should feel accomplished, right? Not always. My friend Kelsey Ramsden ticked off all the boxes, and even after major achievements such as being named Canada’s top female entrepreneur (twice!), she still felt frustrated and lonely. Talking with other entrepreneurs, Kelsey realized she wasn’t the only one experiencing what she now calls a “success hangover”. So… she wrote the book on it.

On today’s episode of #GlambitionRadio, Kelsey discusses her groundbreaking new book, “Success Hangover: Ignite Your Next Act. Screw Your Status Quo. Feel Alive Again.”

I SO agree with this conversation: It’s time to start giving ourselves permission to have very different goals every few years — what may have satiated us at the last stage of our careers will not (and should not) as we gain new perspectives, wisdom, and skillsets. It should be expected for our goals and ambitions to evolve.   

By the way, Kelsey literally moves the earth with her businesses in civil construction and real estate where she builds highways, airports, and communities. (She dialed in for our interview from Montserrat, where her company is bidding to help rebuild their infrastructure after the huge hurricane a few years ago.)

Forbes has written that Kelsey, “…is a master builder of ideas, businesses and sky’s the limit futures”, so you know this conversation is going to be GREAT.

On the show, we also discuss:

*The life-changing adventures she leads three times a year (including a wild story about a sniper training workshop)

*How men and women experience the success hangover differently (you may be surprised)

*How she handled the angry emails she received from people who didn’t like her book! (these comments were amusing to me)

*The importance of creating work that can stand alone (I really appreciated this distinction)

*Her theory on confidence vs. competence, and mindful imperfection

*How having cancer reshaped how she looks at her life, her career, and the choices she makes

On the show Kelsey and I also discuss the importance of knowing the numbers in your business, why you should put high expectations on the people you surround yourself with (yes!), and the advantages of letting people see the real you and not just the Instagram you.

Head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download it for later). And don’t forget to pick up your copy of “Success Hangover” wherever books are sold and hear Kelsey’s own podcast, “Futureproofing”, which I’ve appeared on!

‘Your ICONIC 2019’ — Glambition Radio Episode 157 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Let’s do this! There’s some powerful energy in the air for 2019 around creating what you REALLY want next. But there are some major moves you have to consider first to get there, and I’m sharing them with you TODAY on this special solo episode of #GlambitionRadio.

My first recommendation may surprise you, and that’s not what to take on, but what to let go of. And I give you my special secret formula to identify those things quickly. You can’t move into your true ICONIC work until you decide what’s NOT up to par for you anymore. And I’m not even talking about habits, etc. I’m talking about what is ‘taking up room’ in your business model, for a start. 

Then, I share with you that with all the noise and chaos in nearly every industry right now—especially for those of you who represent yourself and your offerings online—what YOUR absolute BEST move could be right now to not only stand out from the pack, but attract the ideal clients and followers you’ve been wanting.    

I also share a sneak peek at my upcoming workshop, ‘ICONIC Content + IP Retreat, happening in Phoenix, March 19-21. Because I filled most of the seats at my recent ICONIC event, there are only 12 spots left. This is a very different type of retreat, with only 30 participants total, where we’re going to roll up our sleeves and break into your ICONIC messaging and models… on the spot. (For more info now and to reserve your seat, go to www.IPRetreat.com. But I walk you through all the details on the show, so it would be good to listen as well.)

It’s a critical time for changemaking entrepreneurs and thought leaders to develop and disseminate their most powerful content and I.P. (intellectual property). To TRULY step into being a thought leader – and I don’t mean just posting positive platitudes online to a bevy of followers (there are plenty of those). I mean REALLY leading your audience to a new way of THINKING.

But making time for any of this in your everyday business life is nearly next to impossible. It’s time you create a place and a plan to get your true messaging out there, and I share how you can be sure to make this happen in 2019.

This is one you don’t want to miss. Listen now or download for later at GlambitionRadio.com.

Enjoy, and if you like this episode please share with your community!

Eleanor Beaton, Women’s Leadership Expert — Glambition Radio Episode 135 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Meet the woman who got hate mail for telling all you ladies to STOP saying ‘yes’ to all those coffee dates with everyone who just wants to suck your brain dry. It’s time we learn there’s a difference between being supportive of women versus saying ‘yes’ to everything and everyone. Because it keeps us from gaining more seats at the big tables where deals are made. And WE are desperately needed for higher leadership. Boom. We just said it. Get ready for a VERY real conversation on women’s leadership on Glambition Radio.

My client Eleanor Beaton is one of the foremost women’s leadership experts in North America today. When I first heard her teachings (in 2015 as a guest on her podcast), I thought “Finally… someone is approaching this from a higher and extremely practical level”. I followed her ever since. And today, I’m honored she’s one of my Premier clients. (Who also just broke her first million-dollar mark while working with me.)

She’s an award-winning journalist, speaker, executive coach, and host of the fabulous “Fierce, Feminine Leadership” podcast. Through her world-renowned trainings, mentorships, and international keynotes, Eleanor advises high-level women on developing the skills they need to amplify their voices and take their seats at the tables where the big decisions are made

After years of working with CEO’s on how to craft their messaging and communicate on an external level, Eleanor made a personal development shift into teaching communication and leadership strategies to powerhouse women and high-level teams that led to her becoming one of the top leadership experts for women today. She takes us through her inspiring journey on this episode of Glambition Radio.  

Eleanor has served as Chair of the Visiting Women’s Executive Exchange Program at the Yale School of Management, has won the prestigious Profiles in Diversity “Women Worth Watching” Award, and has presented at conferences whose other speakers have included Hillary Rodham Clinton and Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson. 

On this episode, Eleanor dives into powerful topics around women’s leadership and during much of our conversation we bring up the power behind saying NO. She also shares her experience of working with me and how as part of my premier group she is surrounded by an environment of high-level, successful women who are raising the bar and are not afraid to say no.

We need to exert our boundaries, prioritize our time, and preserve our strategic thinking and intuition, so we can support each other where it counts. She tells the whole story in our interview and you don’t want to miss it.

On the show, we also cover:

* why women need to STOP networking on their own level all the time and start making more powerful strategic connections 

* how being rooted in confidence is key to success when you’re making a big shift (stop doubting yourself, ladies)

* what Eleanor saw happening for women in high-level boardroom meetings (and knew she had to help make a change)

* why we need to unlearn some of the lessons we’ve been handing down to other women (and our daughters — this is so important)

* how to insert yourself into the important conversations (stop waiting to be acknowledged)

* why it’s true we have to master success from within the current (broken) business system – so we can push for great changes from the inside 

* why it’s not enough to just set the intention (we need to lean into the discomfort)

* why there are times when we need to lead alone (love this insight)

* my own story on the power shift I experienced 15 years ago from a small event, but one that had me in tears and led me to trust my instincts (I share the story on the show)

We also talk about Eleanor’s upcoming retreat in Phoenix, AZ (which I’m speaking at!), Your Million Dollar Messagewhere she will lead you through how to get clear on your message to have a voice at the table. (March 23-25, 2018. Learn more and grab a seat at yourmilliondollarmessageretreat.com)

On the show, Eleanor and I also discuss why we need to reshape the narrative of what it means to be a wealthy, successful woman, and how critical it is to surround yourself with a group of women who are leaders in their industry — it’s time to create that high-level tribe. (And this is one of the reasons, she shares, on why she joined my high-level Premier group.)

Don’t wait – this is a good one. Head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download for later).

Xo 

P.S. I have room for 3 new members in my Premier group this year. Average revenues are well over $1M per member and we have powerhouse women from a variety of industries. If you resonate with what Eleanor says on the show about being part of ‘higher level tribes’ and are interested in learning more, go to alibrown.com/coaching-consulting/

Heather Dominick, Founder of the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur Movement — Glambition Radio Episode 117 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

About 20% of the population are born “highly sensitive”. Once Heather Dominick realized she was one of them, she also identified the way she was growing her business was completely unaligned with who she was. Because the vast majority of coaching and training programs were designed for the other 80%, and her work with those coaches drove her to overwhelm, exhaustion, and even health problems.

She also realized there were many women like her, who had incredible gifts to share as coaches, healers, and creative entrepreneurs who were seeking training that WAS aligned.

So Heather started the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE) movement.

If you’ve suffered most of your life believing that you are not up to par, you are not as worthy, you are not as valuable as the other 80%, you need to hear this episode of Glambition Radio. Because there’s an awakening to ultimate healing happening for millions of highly-sensitive women, and Heather is guiding us through it.

On this episode, my client Heather dives into how to play to your strengths (or as she calls them, your super powers) as an HSE and how to use consistency to go from distraction and procrastination to a transformation in your life and business.

On the show, we discuss:

* How a “dark night of the soul” led Heather to discover what it means to be an HSE

* How HSEs are coded to be the “royal advisors” in today’s world, which is why we are being called to be coaches, consultants, healers, and creative entrepreneurs

* The HSE coping mechanisms of hiding and pushing, and how to break the cycles (especially when they can lead to massive health issues!)

* There is NO RUSH for your life purpose — it simply becomes who you are. No more “do more to get more that costs more”

* What YOU can do now to embrace your sensitivity to bring fulfillment and healing in your life and business

* Heather’s deep transformation over the last five years during our coaching together (and what I’ve learned from her as well)

* How her quiz at www.taketheHSEquiz.com can tell you if you are an HSE right away

Hear how Heather has completely reinvented her life and business to honor 100% who she is, with even better financial results.

On this episode of Glambition Radio, Heather and I also talk about the importance of accepting and embracing who YOU are, how to choose a good coach, and the little thing she does at her retreats that blew my mind.

I know you’ll get a lot out of this episode. So head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download for later).

Laura Roeder, Founder and CEO of MeetEdgar — Glambition Radio Episode 127 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Her social media software MeetEdgar is changing the game of how we publish and recycle content, she’s grown her company to annual revenues of $4 million, and she’s leading the social media industry to a whole new level of cred. Meet the legendary Laura Roeder on this week’s Glambition Radio.

I actually briefly met Laura in late 2008 when she attended my Online Success Blueprint Workshop. She took what she learned there and switched gears from web design to the world of social media marketing and info products. Laura’s online courses have taught tens of thousands of entrepreneurs how to harness the power of social media. She has given talks at conferences like BlogHer and South by Southwest, and even President Obama asked her to speak at the White House. This gal is the real deal. But what I REALLY love about Laura is the “sharp right turn” she took when she founded MeetEdgar. Hear the whole story on this week’s episode.

On the show, we discuss:

* what she put on the front page of her site to build her list during the initial launch stage

* why simplicity is key (she agrees you don’t need a 14-step funnel)

* how she leads her team — it stems from the human condition and the culture that she’s created

* the communication rule she has with her team of 30 virtual employees (we come from different schools of thought, but this was fascinating)

* who Edgar is — I love her method of naming projects!

* why it’s important to connect with your customers regularly (don’t assume they want the same thing they wanted five years ago)

* how Laura met her husband (who just so happened to be a software developer!) and how they travel with a toddler all while growing their business

On the show Laura and I also discuss sexism in the tech industry and how it showed up in an interview at MeetEdgar. She’s created a whole new interview process to combat the issue!

On this episode of Glambition Radio, Laura and I also talk about why you shouldn’t wait until it’s perfect to make it live, the one thing you have to remember when you’re traveling with small kids, and why working in a clean house is a must for us — it’s okay to hire help (Laura even pays for cleaners for her remote team).

‘The Myopic Business Epidemic’ — Glambition Radio Episode 175 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

I’m doing a bit of a RANT along with some educated observations on this solo episode of #GlambitionRadio, and the subject is the epidemic of *myopic* business owners. ‘Myopic’ basically means being nearsighted, lacking foresight, or lacking insight.

Especially within the current online madness, I still see too much ‘following the leader’ and not enough critical thinking. In many cases I’m seeing a lack of even ‘common sense’ thinking.

I see entrepreneurs who consider themselves ‘innovative’ locked into only improving the models that have worked in the past. They don’t even want to test new methods. And when problems arise, they simply work the model harder. It’s akin to digging a deeper and deeper hole they can’t emerge from.

(This is especially evident with those who have simply learned one model of selling something online – for example, the Facebook ads to a free call and then enrolling prospects into some type of service or program. On the show I discuss how yes, this formula works well for some, or for awhile, but there will be a day when something in the formula stops working. And what do they get stuck doing? Listen and learn.)

And here’s where we think and say we are ‘innovators’ but we are not. A recent blog post by Seth Godin got me thinking about this recently.

Unless you are continually trying things that are technically UNPROVEN, you are not innovating.

I’ll give some great examples of women business leaders I admire, including my friend Kara Goldin of Hint Water and shoe designer Tamara Mellon, who are doing business very differently than others in their industries.

And I also give several examples from three of my own 7+8-figure clients — Kelly Roach, Amanda Tress, and Michelle Bosch – these gals are smart because even when business is doing extremely well (all of them do multiple millions per year), they are CONTINUALLY looking ahead and testing new waters.

(Ladies: THIS is what separates the real BOSS leaders from the ‘girl bosses’.)

Head to Apple Podcasts and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download it for later). This is one you don’t want to miss!

>>> And, to help you break out of the pack… and THINK and DO differently, I created my private #ICONICwithAliBrown event, happening November 5+6 this fall in Phoenix.

We have only a handful of seats left, and I’m looking for a few more powerful women leaders to round out our already incredible group. (Current average revenues per attendee in the room are approximately $1.2M.)

Please note this is an advanced workshop for women entrepreneurs with minimum qualifications to attend. Have a look at IconicWithAliBrown.com, and if it’s not a good fit for you, please pass this on to a high performing female entrepreneur you know.

And come join in our conversations on Instagram at www.instagram.com/alibrownofficial or Facebook at www.facebook.com/alibrownfan.

There is a powerful concept—yes, ONE single concept— that if you apply to your business, you can dramatically increase your income and profitability, reduce your workload, and power your next level of scale and impact. And today on GlambitionRadio.com, I’m sharing exactly how to apply this principle as you go into the powerful year of 2020.

This concept is so simple, and has been around for so long, that many overlook it. Because it seems… obvious. But in the Wild West of today’s business world, it’s more relevant—and more effective—than ever before.

It’s called ‘The Pareto Principle’ — also known as ‘the 80/20 rule’. And I love how Pareto’s Principle can be applied to not only most all the areas of your business, but also many areas of your life.

On #GlambitionRadio, I share 7 key areas I want you to look at for the coming year, to see how you can apply Pareto’s Principle to generate greater profits, reduce unnecessary complexity, and increase your joy in 2020.

I also share how I’ve applied the 80/20 rule to my business and life over the years, from products and clients to marketing and even my parenting.

So head to Apple Podcasts now to listen to this episode of Glambition Radio (or download it for later).

And I’d love to know what this episode sparks for you, and the areas YOU have identified in which you’ll be applying Pareto’s Principle in 2020. Come join in the conversation on Instagram or Facebook to let me know.

Podcast cover

Before Farnoosh Torabi was on CNBC, writing for ‘O’ Magazine, and a personal finance expert known for her top-rated ‘So Money’ podcast… she did something that changed her career forever: She wrote and published a book.

Today on GlambitionRadio.com, my friend Farnoosh reveals why her bestselling books have been hands-down the most powerful assets in her career, and pivotal in establishing her authority and brand in her industry. She pulls back the curtain on her background and unique position in finance, including the painful moment she was laid off in her twenties (and how having a published book saved her career). She also shares why she started podcasting, and how it feel to celebrate #SoMoney’s 1,000th episode (!).

And, she offers a powerful invitation to #GlambitionRadio listeners to her private Book to Brand workshop in January 2020 in New York City.

Farnoosh will be coaching a select group of experts and thought leaders to write powerful books that will take their careers to the next level.

On this week’s episode of #GlambitionRadio, you’ll also hear:

*How Farnoosh identified and became known in her niche—and how she leveraged her identity to own the spotlight

*Why you must have a clear point of view and unique perspective on your industry if you want to become a sought-after leader

*Why Farnoosh ‘never put all her eggs in the TV basket’ (and why you shouldn’t either)

*And, I ask a nosy question: how did Farnoosh meet her husband? (It’s a sweet story :))

Christina Stembel, Founder + CEO of Farmgirl Flowers— Glambition® Radio Episode 186 with Ali Brown


Podcast cover
Read more

Christina Stembel, founder of Farmgirl Flowers, knew she wanted to build a big company. So when she saw that flowers were the last undisrupted industry in Silicon Valley, she seized the opportunity. Nine years later, her fully self-funded company is generating $34 million… and counting.

On GlambitionRadio.com, Christina shares how she built her company—the only direct-to-consumer floral company owned by a woman (despite women being the majority of flower consumers). Before Farmgirl Flowers, no one had innovated in the industry since the ’90s…and it was easy to tell. Christina knew she could do better, so the high-school graduate taught herself everything: from floral design to supply chain dynamics to financials.

Christina also reveals the indirect yet clear sexism she’s faced while growing her business in the agriculture industry. And though Farmgirl Flowers’ Inc. 5000 status has brought in many offers for funding, Christina shares why she ignores all funding opportunities today, and we discuss the false metric that ‘funding equals success’.

On this week’s episode of #GlambitionRadio, you’ll hear:

*How Christina created a transformative new model, allowing Farmgirl Flowers to deliver unique, high-quality blooms that are not offered anywhere else

*Why she wishes she’d stopped being nice sooner (women entrepreneurs need to hear this)

*The disappointing thing that happened when she tried to source her blooms solely from in the U.S.

*How Christina’s origin story is not what people expect—or want to hear—from a female founder (this was really interesting)

*When it’s time to give up on your idea (Ouch! But important to consider.)

Stacy Madison, Founder of ‘Stacy’s Snacks’ + ‘Be Bold Bars’ — Glambition® Radio Episode 185 with Ali Brown


Podcast cover

It started with a sandwich cart in Downtown Boston. Stacy Madison, founder of Stacy’s Snacks, began baking leftover pita bread into chips to give to her waiting customers. And when people started asking to buy the chips, Stacy knew she was on to something.

Today on GlambitionRadio.com, Stacy shares how she turned her cart into a nationally-recognized snack company (later acquired for $250 million), and how she used ‘street smarts’ to excel in the food industry (her background is social work!). And, Stacy opens up about the hardships of building her company and providing for two young children—twins—at home.

She also reveals her exciting new venture: Be Bold Bars. The all-natural snack bars are ‘feeding her passion’, allowing her to return to the healthy snacks industry now that her children are older. I can’t wait to try the bars—they are made with nut butters and other whole food ingredients, and they sound delicious.

On this week’s episode of #GlambitionRadio, you’ll hear:

*The moment Stacy knew her pita chips brand was taking off (and how a piece of litter made her realize it—this is a funny story)

*The steps she took from idea to inception

*How lost she felt after selling her company, and how she found new purpose, which led to the creation of Be Bold Bars

*Why she feels responsible as a female entrepreneur to ‘put a bit of sanity into an insane world’, and how Stacy’s Rise Project provides funding, mentorship and community to up-and-coming female entrepreneurs.

Charlene Li, Author of ‘The Disruption Mindset’ — Glambition Radio Episode 184 with Ali Brown


Podcast cover

She says we’ve been approaching disruption—and growth—completely backward. And bestselling author and leadership disruptor Charlene Li is here to change that.

On this week’s #GlambitionRadio, Charlene reveals why growth creates disruption (not the other way around), and why leading from the edge isn’t for everyone. Her perspective is different from any I’ve heard before, and it affirmed of some of the disruptive decisions I’ve made that at times weren’t understood by my team and clients.

Charlene doesn’t shy away from the reality that making a disruptive decision—what she calls the ‘big gulp moment’—can feel scary and painful. She shares how to prepare for it, and offers brilliant advice for how to plan the future of your company so you can make the impact you are here to make.

Charlene has been named among the Top 50 Leadership Innovators by Inc., Most Creative People in Business by Fast Company, and is a sought-after speaker from TED and the World Business Forum to SxSW. On this week’s episode of #GlambitionRadio, you’ll hear:

*Why you have to ‘burn the boats’ if you want to lead and disrupt your industry (Charlene shares a fascinating case study of this from a software company you’ll recognize)

*How growing up in an immigrant family in Detroit taught Charlene to solve problems from the outside in

*Why Burning Man has been on Charlene’s bucket list for years (and why it’s meaningful that she finally went this year—with her 23 year-old son!)

*The three common beliefs of truly disruptive organizations (and how terrifying it was for Charlene to create her own disruptive business model)

*All about her new book, ‘The Disruption Mindset: Why Some Organizations Transform While Others Fail’.

She is an Emmy-award winning TV producer, best-selling author, and expert media trainer and strategist. And today on #GlambitionRadio, Paula Rizzo reveals exactly how to get media attention for your new book or business venture, as well as the biggest mistake people make when pitching… and how to avoid it. She also details her journey to writing her second book, ‘Listful Living: A List-Making Journey to a Less Stressed You,’ available now.

On GlambitionRadio.com, Paula also opens up about the life-threatening health crisis she experienced after publishing her first book. (This was the first time I’d actually heard about it!) It forced her to slow down and say ‘no’ to what wasn’t important. Her story is an urgent reminder that we need to stay in tune with our bodies or risk serious damage to our health and even our lives.

As a media veteran for nearly 20 years on local and Fox News, Paula has received thousands of pitches. But her experience doesn’t stop there: as an author and entrepreneur, Paula has done her share of pitching and self-promotion, too. Her unique blend of skill and insight on both sides of the camera make her an invaluable media strategist and coach.

On #GlambitionRadio you’ll hear us discuss:

*The most important type of content you need to be producing right now — and why (this is smart, and it could mean less work, too)

*Why burnout is such a health crisis right now, and why Paula says that ‘rest is the new hustle’ (women entrepreneurs especially need to hear this)

*How authors can position themselves for media engagements that will lead to more sales (and what media to avoid if you’re an author)

*Why entrepreneurs must revisit their work schedules and boundaries on a regular basis (even if you think you have a handle on them)

Sallie Krawcheck, Wallstreet Legend + Co-founder of Ellevest — Glambition Radio Episode 181 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

From decades in the powerful C-suites of Wall Street to today helping women of all levels invest for themselves, Sallie Krawcheck is a force to be reckoned with. And her new, disruptive investment platform, Ellevest — designed by women, for women — is rapidly changing what has historically been an industry designed for men.

Today on GlambitionRadio.com, Sallie reveals the moment she knew women actually needed their own investment platform, and why she decided to create it. She also shares the secret behind Ellevest’s incredible success, and what sets it apart from similar financial platforms that have failed.

I also HAD to hear the stories of her working on Wall Street in the 80s and 90s, and how she worked her way up to becoming CEO of Merrill Lynch, Smith Barney, US Trust, the Citi Private Bank, and Sanford C. Bernstein. And don’t forget she was also CFO of Citigroup. (And, in a story demonstrative of this cutthroat industry, she learned she was fired from one of those jobs by… (wait for it…) hearing it on the TV. I just can’t imagine.)

Sallie and I both share a lack of tolerance for the dumbed-down financial advice for women that abounds, urging us to give up small luxuries like our daily coffee. Her advice? ‘Buy the f***ing latte!’ We discuss this topic, the viral article she wrote, and how to think bigger.

On this episode of #GlambitionRadio, you’ll also hear:

*Why every woman needs ‘take your hand off my leg’ money (this made me laugh out loud, and it is so true—she explains it on the show)

*How Sallie reinvented herself from corporate powerhouse to entrepreneur, and became the leader she is meant to be

*What it was like to come up the ranks in the male-dominated industry of Wall Street, and how that inspired her to do things differently at Ellevest

*The fine line that high-performing women must walk when being a BOSS, and Sallie’s advice for navigating the complex expectations of women leaders

(And there were so many more nuggets in this one I can’t even cover here – be sure to listen to get them all.)

Caroline Criado-Perez, Activist + Author of ‘Invisible Women’ — Glambition Radio Episode 180 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

The cars we buy, the drugs we’re prescribed, even the A/C settings in conference rooms — are determined by data. And disturbingly, most of this data stems from ‘objective scientific’ research that still today completely leaves out half of the population: women. Today on GlambitionRadio.com, author and activist Caroline Criado-Perez reveals the shocking impact on women of a world designed by (and for) for men, and how she decided to write ‘Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men’.

On #GlambitionRadio, Caroline also opens up about the frightening experience when her campaign for better women’s representation on English currency led to such a level of harassment on Twitter (death threats and worse) that the platform changed their complaint procedures as a result. And, she shares the remarkable outcome of her efforts on this campaign.

In this eye-opening episode we also discuss:

*The pivotal moment when Caroline realized how the ‘default male’ impacts how women perceive the world (this was fascinating, and I’d never realized it before)

*How many business opportunities are missed when women’s data is not factored into product design or funding (Caroline gives a great example of this, which other moms and I can relate to!)

*The most shocking example of design that has ignored women entirely (and the sometimes fatal impact it has on women… and children)

*What happens when design and research teams don’t have enough women (this example from a well-known Apple product is so ridiculous I couldn’t believe it)

*What it’s really like to be an OBE – Officer of the Order of the British Empire, named by the Queen of England

‘Your Ego Loves False Metrics’ — Glambition Radio Episode 179 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Join me for an upfront conversation this week on #GlambitionRadio to determine whether the metrics you are honoring in your business could actually be leading you down the WRONG path.

On this solo episode, I share some stories of metrics gone right… and wrong… including examples of both the new strategy Madonna is using for her tour and the grand fiasco of WeWork’s failed IPO. (Two opposite ends of the spectrum!)

I also disclose an important shift I made in the metrics I decided to STOP honoring and those I decided to START honoring, once I had my twins six years ago. And now those key metrics are changing yet again. The kids are in first grade and I have a newfound burst of energy while I am creating a brand new venture for 2020.

The bottom line is, the metrics you honor have to line up with your vision, and goals. But for many of us with that ‘comparisonitis’, we model others we think have the formula for success, without taking into consideration if that aligns with what we really want to create for ourselves and our specific audience.

Listen to this episode, and I invite you to take some time and look at the metrics you have been honoring, and ask if they are serving you or whether it’s time to honor some brand NEW ones. Catch it now at GlambitionRadio.com.

Warning: When you do this, it can be a hard adjustment. You may have to get used to things looking different in your business, and to outsiders. Even if the changes you are making guarantee you higher revenues and will suit you better, your ego will start SCREAAAAMING to go back. So you have to keep revisiting with yourself the reasons WHY you are making these changes.

So much of this is really just a mind game. And this is where most everyone STOPS because they can’t handle it! So listen to this episode for a strong new perspective.

(BTW… we do an entire session on this at my #ICONICwithAliBrown event, coming up in November in Phoenix. If you’re established in your business and this elevated conversation interests you, have a look at IconicWithAliBrown.com and apply for one of the few seats remaining.)

Vicky Tsai, Founder + CEO of Tatcha — Glambition Radio Episode 178 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

The founder of skin care brand Tatcha (which I am currently obsessed with) reveals the behind-the-scenes story of how she built her global luxury beauty company, recently acquired for a rumored $500 million, today on GlambitionRadio.com.

It started in 2009, when Vicky Tsai was desperately searching for products that didn’t aggravate her skin. She found answers in an unexpected place: a 200-year-old Japanese beauty manuscript detailing the generations-old skin care practices embraced by geisha.

Amazed by her healed skin, Vicky hired scientists and researchers so more people could experience these products (I was sold the first time I tried a Tatcha mask — I share that story in the episode). Tatcha’s superfood-based skin care is so nourishing and effective, the company quickly became one of the fastest growing in the US.

On #GlambitionRadio, Vicky shares the story of meeting the geisha who inspired her skin care collection, and the risks she took to start her company. We also discuss:

*The first big decision she made to buy a container of 10,000 blotting papers while on a trip to Japan — and how she did it with NO money

*Vicky’s two-fold advice for taking care of your skin (I did not know about this before she told me, and it made me change my routine right away)

*Why every purchase of a Tatcha product helps fund girls’ education around the world, and how giving back has impacted Vicky’s outlook on leadership and entrepreneurship

*The story behind Vicky’s decision to sell her engagement ring to start her company (and what her husband thought of this idea!)

Jennifer Maanavi, CEO + Co-Founder of Physique 57 — Glambition Radio Episode 177 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Physique 57 co-founder Jennifer Maanavi loved taking dance-inspired barre classes in New York City. The elegant, sophisticated movement suited her in a way the gym never did. So when the studio she loved suddenly closed, she knew someone had to keep this method alive. And she thought… ‘it might as well be me’.

Drawing on her MBA, Jennifer put together a business plan and recruited Tanya Becker, a star barre instructor. Within 20 minutes of their first meeting in 2006, Jennifer and Tanya realized they had the same vision: ‘to bring this method to women around the world’.

Thirteen years later, Physique 57 is a global luxury fitness brand with studios spanning across 5 countries (and more to come), from the US to India and Saudi Arabia.

Today on GlambitionRadio.com, Jennifer reveals how they built their renowned fitness company (before the days of social media and the boutique fitness trend), counting women like Sarah Jessica Parker and Kelly Ripa among their clients. She shares how then focusing on digital allowed for agile growth, and why expanding the franchise is their next goal (and why it’s important to them).

On #GlambitionRadio, we also discuss:

*What they did when their competition started copying them (from their name and branding to actual pictures of Tanya!)

*How their early adoption of the class packages model positioned them at the forefront of their industry (though it also came with significant challenges)

*What has become a distraction so they have decided to ELIMINATE it from their business model (this concept is so important)

*Why Physique 57 decided to open a location in one of the most challenging places for women in the world — Saudi Arabia

Denise Duffield-Thomas, Money Mindset Mentor — Glambition Radio Episode 176 with Ali Brown

You CAN build a multi-million dollar business… simply. And Denise Duffield-Thomas has done it. Her powerful, lucrative ‘Money Bootcamp’ program made her a millionaire by age 35… without a huge team, mind-numbing funnels, or layers of unnecessary complexity.

And today, her business gives her plenty of ‘unbusy’ time with her husband and their three young children.

On GlambitionRadio.com, Denise reveals how she built her seven-figure business (serving over 6,000 clients), and how she discovered her simple, six-word business model — along with some mistakes and detours she made along the way.

Denise has attended several of my events over the years, and I’ve always admired that she does it her way. This is the model that women entrepreneurs are pioneering: creating businesses that let us enjoy our families while we make the world-changing impact we are here to make.

In this candid episode of #GlambitionRadio, we also discuss:

*The guilt she felt about earning more than her own mom (Denise turned this discomfort into a powerful motivator — and I love her solution, which helps her ‘sleep at night’ and grow her business!)

*The realities of bringing her husband into the business (Denise doesn’t hold back about about the challenges of working with a spouse.)

*How she chose one thing to focus on (and why she resisted it at first). This is so important, and it’s what sets apart truly high-profit, low-stress businesses

*How she did 200 podcast interviews… in one year (I nearly lost my lunch when I heard this, but her reason for doing this was really interesting.)

I’m doing a bit of a RANT along with some educated observations on this solo episode of #GlambitionRadio, and the subject is the epidemic of *myopic* business owners. ‘Myopic’ basically means being nearsighted, lacking foresight, or lacking insight.

Especially within the current online madness, I still see too much ‘following the leader’ and not enough critical thinking. In many cases I’m seeing a lack of even ‘common sense’ thinking.

I see entrepreneurs who consider themselves ‘innovative’ locked into only improving the models that have worked in the past. They don’t even want to test new methods. And when problems arise, they simply work the model harder. It’s akin to digging a deeper and deeper hole they can’t emerge from.

(This is especially evident with those who have simply learned one model of selling something online – for example, the Facebook ads to a free call and then enrolling prospects into some type of service or program. On the show I discuss how yes, this formula works well for some, or for awhile, but there will be a day when something in the formula stops working. And what do they get stuck doing? Listen and learn.)

And here’s where we think and say we are ‘innovators’ but we are not. A recent blog post by Seth Godin got me thinking about this recently.

Unless you are continually trying things that are technically UNPROVEN, you are not innovating.

I’ll give some great examples of women business leaders I admire, including my friend Kara Goldin of Hint Water and shoe designer Tamara Mellon, who are doing business very differently than others in their industries.

And I also give several examples from three of my own 7+8-figure clients — Kelly Roach, Amanda Tress, and Michelle Bosch – these gals are smart because even when business is doing extremely well (all of them do multiple millions per year), they are CONTINUALLY looking ahead and testing new waters.

(Ladies: THIS is what separates the real BOSS leaders from the ‘girl bosses’.)

>>> And, to help you break out of the pack… and THINK and DO differently, I created my private #ICONICwithAliBrown event, happening November 5+6 this fall in Phoenix.

We have only a handful of seats left, and I’m looking for a few more powerful women leaders to round out our already incredible group. (Current average revenues per attendee in the room are approximately $1.2M.)

Please note this is an advanced workshop for women entrepreneurs with minimum qualifications to attend. Have a look at IconicWithAliBrown.com, and if it’s not a good fit for you, please pass this on to a high performing female entrepreneur you know.

Liliana Lovell, Founder of the Coyote Ugly Saloon + CEO of Ugly Inc. — Glambition Radio Episode 173 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Coyote Ugly Saloon founder Lil Lovell was just 25 when she opened that first bar in New York City. And I remember hearing about it when I lived there in the ‘90s.

It had become wildly popular overnight, known for its bartenders (and female customers!) dancing on the bar. And then one of her employees — a little-known writer named Elizabeth Gilbert (yes, truly) — wrote a fantastic piece on it when she was freelancing for ‘GQ’ magazine.

Suddenly, Coyote Ugly was thrust into the national spotlight. Then Hollywood came knocking, and as you probably remember, the movie ‘Coyote Ugly’ came out in 2000.

Today on GlambitionRadio.com, Lil reveals how she went from her tiny bar to the $37M+ franchise of today, which operates 27 locations in 7 countries, with another 20+ locations in the pipeline.

On #GlambitionRadio, Lil opens up about the realities of having a movie based on her business, and her ‘unpopular’ opinion about the dark side of the women’s empowerment movement. (She makes a powerful point here, and I think you’ll agree.)

You’ll also hear us discuss:

*How Lil leveraged the movie deal to build her platform and start licensing and franchising her brand (and the challenges that came with the movie’s publicity)

*The debate about the feminism of the Coyote Ugly Saloon (detractors have called it ‘one step away from a strip club’) and Lil’s take on why that’s ridiculous and that it’s actually a powerful, safe place for women to have fun

What Lil does to maintain the integrity of her brand (even with locations in places as far as Japan, Russia, and… Kyrgyzstan?!)

And, I reveal to Lil why I never actually went inside Coyote Ugly. (Lil then advises me which location to start with when I’m ready to finally dance on the bar — hmmmm. Should we plan a #GlambitionRadio trip?)

Jessica Yellin, Former White House Correspondent + Author of ‘Savage News’ — Glambition Radio Episode 172 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Back when Jessica Yellin began her career in broadcast journalism, she stated at every opportunity: ‘My goal is to be a White House Correspondent.’ (Even when it garnered her some ‘Who do you think you are?’ looks.) And after working her way from local news to MSNBC, ABC, and then Good Morning America, she did it, becoming their official White House Correspondent in 2004. A few years later, she transitioned to CNN, and won Emmy, Gracie, and Peabody awards for journalism along the way.

Today on GlambitionRadio.com, Jessica reveals how she built her powerful career by wearing her goals on her sleeve, and what inspired her to write her first novel, ‘Savage News’, which came out in April 2019. As described by Arianna Huffington: ‘If The Devil Wears Prada and Broadcast News had a love child, it would be this hilarious satire of the Washington circus.’

On #GlambitionRadio, Jessica shares why she chose to fictionalize her career in a novel, and the surprising reaction she’s heard from her readers. She also explains the massive gap in the way news is reported and shared today, and how she is disrupting the news industry today with her #NewsNotNoise campaign.

On today’s Glambition Radio, we also discuss:

*Why she pivoted from her role as GMA’s White House Correspondent to working for CNN — the outlet she calls the ‘assignment editor’ to the rest of the press. (She explains what she means during our interview. It was a brilliant career move.)

*The problem with the ‘outrage fatigue’ we experience from ongoing 24-hour news coverage everywhere we look, and how it actually keeps us from engaging around the most important issues that affect our world today

*Why there is a huge audience that wants to hear the news differently (I’m sure you can relate!) and why ‘news is ripe for disruption

*How she listened to her intuition when it was time to pivot, and what it feels like to follow her purpose in life by launching #NewsNotNoise

*The juicy little story of how Amy Schumer decided to announce her pregnancy using Jessica’s Instagram account to help gain more following for Jessica’s cause

*And we had a laugh over why women correspondents’ hairstyles are somehow such a big deal on broadcast news.

Head to Apple Podcasts and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download it for later). And make sure to buy a copy of Jessica’s novel, ‘Savage News’, wherever books are sold.

Cindy Eckert, Founder of The Pink Ceiling + CEO of Sprout Pharma — Glambition Radio Episode 171 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

She created Addyi, the first FDA-approved drug for women with low libidos, dubbed by the media as ‘the female Viagra’, and sold the company that created it — Sprout Pharmaceuticals — for $1 BILLION. And then last year, she successfully sued to get it BACK. Why? And then what happened?

I had to get Cindy Eckert (formerly Whitehead) back on the show, not only to explain what’s going on with her company, but also update us on her unabashed mission to help make more women ‘really f—ing rich’.

>>> This is one of the reasons why I’m flying Cindy in to Phoenix this November as a special guest at #ICONICwithAliBrown. She’ll be leading us in a special ‘closed-door’ session on thinking bigger and doing BIG deals. More than ever, women are needed to take their missions to a grander scale. And right now we have less than 17 seats left, so have a look at ICONICwithAliBrown.com.)

As a proven serial entrepreneur with multiple successful exits (and as the only woman to sell her business for over $1 billion), Cindy knows how to take an idea from inception to becoming much bigger than herself.

Today on #GlambitionRadio, Cindy describes why it’s important to be singularly focused, and why she ignores industry formulas to instead follow her curiosity.

You’ll hear us discuss:

*The problem of women entrepreneurs thinking too small these days (and what’s distracting them from their true, ICONIC work in the world)

*The shocking, unsolicited feedback Cindy received from a female attendee at a speaking event, and how it changed the way she introduces herself forever (I love her even more for this, and it revealed how messed up most women are about money in general)

*How you can and should be creative and curious within your industry (and where Cindy went for customer service training with her team — I love this!)

*Why her investment strategy is to ‘make women really f—ing rich’ (and the incredible multiplier effect of this strategy)

Head to Apple Podcasts and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download for later).

And if you want to join Cindy and myself alongside some of the most successful women leaders in their categories, consider joining us at #ICONICwithAliBrown on Nov. 5+6, 2019 here in Phoenix.

There is no other event like this out there! Have a look at what is in store, and see if you qualify. (Please note this is a workshop for proven business leaders—see if you qualify at ICONICwithAliBrown.com)

Natasha Case, CEO + Co-Founder of Coolhaus Ice Cream — Glambition Radio Episode 170 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

It was during a walk down the freezer aisle that Natasha Case saw it: No one had innovated in the ice cream category in decades. And none of the brands on the shelf spoke to her, as a millennial and a woman. In this candid episode at GlambitionRadio.com, Natasha opens up about the risks it took to start Coolhaus Ice Cream, and how she and her co-founder (now wife) Freya navigated the challenges of their business, marriage, and becoming parents.

I am amazed by Natasha’s story, and the vision and courage it took to go from her architecture background to… ice cream! On #GlambitionRadio Natasha explains how she knew the timing was right for her passionate hobby — making ice cream and cookies for colleagues and friends — to become something bigger. Food trucks were just entering the scene in L.A. when she and Freya put it all on the line: They bought an old, beat-up postal van (for $2,500 off Craigslist) and started selling their ice cream to see if they had a viable product. And their test gig was no small one —Coachella!

Natasha has been named ’30 Under 30’ by Forbes and Zagat, and Coolhaus ice cream is sold in over 7,500 grocery stores from Safeway to Whole Foods, and internationally. You will love her warmth and energy, and our holistic discussion of all things business, family life, and kids.

On today’s episode, we also discuss:

*Why it’s dangerous when you know too much about your category (I couldn’t agree more. She is singing my song!)

*What happened when a small farmer’s market rejected them… and why they decided to ‘go big or go home’ by debuting their product to over 100,000 people at Coachella!

*How Natasha and Freya knew it was time for Freya to leave the business (Natasha goes there in this episode, and doesn’t hold back from sharing how they managed the business and their relationship)

*How the generosity of two veterans of the ice cream and cookie business helped Natasha and Freya get their start (I love this story, because none of us would be where we are today without this kind of mentorship and support)

*Why adding a dairy-free line requires a new level of creativity (you won’t believe how they make their dairy-free ice cream… and I can say from personal experience that it’s delicious!)

Head to Apple Podcasts and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download it for later). And make sure to look for Coolhaus ice cream next time you’re at the store!

Rebecca Minkoff, Fashion Designer + Founder of The Female Founder Collective — Glambition Radio Episode 169 with Ali Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

A cut-up t-shirt she designed in her apartment helped launch Rebecca Minkoff’s entire fashion empire over 20 years ago, and it’s still thriving. But I was even more interested in having RM herself on #GlambitionRadio this week to discuss her new venture designed to assist other female founders.

It started with a simple question to a VC firm who wanted her to invest: ‘May I see a list of your female-founded companies?’ When they couldn’t easily provide one, she knew it was an opportunity. She shares her brilliant solution and why its relevant more than ever on this inspiring episode at GlambitionRadio.com.

Rebecca’s network of women mentors, supporters and colleagues had always been instrumental in her success. And she knew that 82% of women are more likely to support female-founded brands… if only it was made easier to do so.

So Rebecca created the Female Founder Collective: a network and directory of businesses led by women and supporting women. You’ll hear Rebecca’s big plans for this collective — plus, how you can join and get involved — on #GlambitionRadio.

She also shares why she stopped hosting formal fashion shows and took a ‘sharp right turn’ (as I call it) to launch I Am Many. This powerful campaign is a far cry from the conventional runway show: It uses video to highlight diverse women’s stories, while promoting Rebecca’s latest fashion collections.

On today’s episode, we also discuss:

*The FULL story on how that first t-shirt ended up launching her entire business… and how it appeared on Jay Leno (without her!)

*The inspiration behind her first handbag (let’s all flash back to our Carrie Bradshaw days in NYC ;))

*The importance of scarcity in today’s market (and how you can use it to take calculated risks in your business)

*Rebecca’s advice for how — and when — to branch out (without diluting your brand or specialty)

*The silver lining to our current political climate (and how it galvanized Rebecca to think differently about her legacy)

*What happened when she her dad for a business loan.. and he said no!

*Why it felt “extraordinarily materialistic” to do fashion as usual… and how that led her to think differently

*Why Rebecca doesn’t splash her name or initials across her handbags and clothing (I love this)

Head to Apple Podcasts and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download it for later). And make sure to apply to join the Female Founder Collective now and become part of the movement.
