Description

theSkimm's co-founders and co-CEOs, Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg, started their company from a couch. Now they’re bringing it back to one, and inviting powerful female leaders to sit down and chat about everything from celebrating career wins to the worst advice they've ever received. It’s an inside look at what it’s really like on the road to success. No BS, no sugarcoating.

Leslie Blodgett, former CEO and founder, bareMinerals: “I learned that when I'm desperate, when I can't seem to find my way, is when I get most creative.”

Leslie Blodgett is a trailblazer in the beauty industry. She is the former CEO and founder of bareMinerals, a product she grew into an almost two billion dollar business. She sat down with us to talk about how she built a community of loyal customers before the age of social media. And luckily, she's also put those tips into her new book, “Pretty Good Advice.” It gives some pretty great advice. Including: “lead with laughter.” In this episode, Leslie shares how she hustled to break into the beauty business (5:32), why she built her television persona while being an introvert (12:39), and how she's leaned on a support system of girlfriends (22:10). Stay tuned at the end for a spotlight on Juju Supply, a company making jewelry, touchstones and totems to give you energy, spirit, resilience, and hope.
