One of my longtime blog readers just interviewed me for her podcast and I just had to share it with you ladies. Jillian has been reading my work for a decade (!!) and she asked if she could chat with me about life, entrepreneurship, spirituality, and more. We had such a great time catching up and I know you ladies are going to love this one. Grab a glass of wine or pour a cup of tea and get ready to join this power chat!

I'm so excited for today's guest! You may know Marisa Ravel as the genius behind the 80's and 90's pop culture inspired fashion and accessories line LASER KITTEN. I've been a fan of her work for a few years now and have quite the collection of her pins and mugs (David Bowie and Prince riding on a unicorn together?! Yes please). I've watched Marisa build her business with so much passion and creativity and after seeing her most recent collaboration with Forever 21, I was so inspired that I reached out and invited her on the show. Join us for this #BabeChat where we talk all things glitter, nostalgia, and what it's like to fearlessly build an empire.

I recently sat down with Lauryn Evarts of The Skinny Confidential and her husband, Michael Bosstick when they were visiting New York City for an interview on their podcast. We chatted all about entrepreneurship: specifically money mindset, side hustling, the importance of community, adding value, and more. I really think you guys are going to LOVE this conversation, so I knew I had to feature it here so you didn't miss out. Enjoy!

I'm so excited to bring you this episode from my NEW place! This big move got me thinking about change and how important it is to change our lives in both small and big ways. If you've been feeling stagnant or stuck in a rut, this episode is for you. I'm helping you find ways to change NOW so you can shake things up and start feeling inspired. Because adventure does not have an age limit.

Empowering women means paying them too. Brands and organizations with "no budget" are going to find themselves with "no influencers" and "no talent" to promote their products and speak at their events. In this episode, I'm helping you develop the confidence and strategies to ask for what you deserve, negotiate brand partnerships, get paid for speaking engagements, and more.
