When your ideas suck, and what's great about competitors' negative reviews Jun 14, 2022

One of the points that stuck out to me during our talk with Christie and our CWS afterward was the conversation around seeing your clients as people and not as transactions. When you see them as people first and begin that dialogue as person -to - person, reaching, selling, and serving those...

Evaluating your business ideas (even the dumb ones) Jun 08, 2022

I met Christie almost 4 years ago in Palm Springs at a conference. At the time, I was our marketing team and wandered into her session hoping to gain some clarity on how in the hell I was supposed to do this job I knew nothing about. The session was immensely helpful, but what I really loved was...

Can you be both a supermom and a badass entrepreneur? Jun 01, 2022

"When you've been in business for that long, I'm sure there were moments that were dicey and lean and hard, but you can look back and think that even though it felt like a low at that time - all things are working together to get you to where you're at."

It is such an honor to talk to someone who...

Work Life Balance is Bullshit Jun 01, 2022

"Here I am in the conference room trying to do a presentation and this little one is in the bathroom throwing up and I thought Oh My God, what am I doing? I should have canceled or rescheduled - I felt like that was the worst moment of me trying to incorporate my business and being a mom."

I...

Walking in another person's shoes - What a gift! Apr 18, 2022

This was one of my favorite interviews that we have done to date. I loved it not only for Billy’s energy and fun story, but I loved how thought provoking his “why” for doing what he does is. That is to see a situation or life choice from a different perspective, to be able to...

Curiosity and Withholding Judgement Apr 11, 2022

This week we had the opportunity to speak with Billy Warden- and man was it a fascinating conversation. What I loved most was his journey. And it wasn’t specifically his journey that was amazing - but his personal growth along the way. 

I am the first one to admit that I have a hard...

Rediscovering your sense of self Apr 04, 2022

I love a conversation that makes you reflect on your past self, it allows you to see how far you have come and maybe provide some acceptance and, dare I say it, appreciation for all that you have been through. The good, the bad, the hard, and all the in betweens! When we were talking with Ryann...

Stepping into the Messy and Embracing who you are meant to be. Mar 28, 2022

I loved our conversation with Ryann - it was so refreshing and authentic. She said this quote above in the middle of our conversation and it just stuck with me. Mostly because I have been there! 

When we were building the Bradford - I was on kid duty, they were hungry, and I had to go to...

When pressure makes you a better business owner Mar 21, 2022

I feel this deeply. It is hard to imagine when we started out where we would be today. C and D was a hobby and a promise of a dream. It didn’t really have to make any money, it just needed to fuel our creativity and expose us to an industry that we hoped we  would one day be a part of....

Partnerships and self reflection Mar 07, 2022

I stand by these words. Being in a partnership has been one of the hardest parts of my life and one of the most rewarding. One of the things that makes it so hard is the fact that YOU (in my case I mean me) and whatever it is that you are going through, is a part of that deal. This is the case in...

Sisters in Business Feb 28, 2022

What a fun episode! It was SO nice to chat with not only another partnership but a sister duo as well - I think we could have chatted forever about the dynamics of business ownership with your sister. I loved the authenticity and realness that Marni and Willa brought to the conversation about the...
