Failure, Reinvention, and Finding Relatability Jul 19, 2022

What a great conversation we had with Rachel! I connected so much with her and the journey that got her where she is today. There were so many great things that Rachel said- but this really stuck out to me. I remember when she said this and I immediately got chills because I have felt this!...

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...

It's not failure, it's just an unsuccessful attempt Jan 03, 2022

Taking the shame out of failure Oct 25, 2021

There were so many great takeaways from our interview with Larry- but none has stuck with me quite like this one. Failure is just an unsuccessful attempt. I can’t even tell you how much my mind was blown when I heard this! It was straight up a light bulb moment.

For me, failure has always...

Do you have someone to sort your socks? Sep 20, 2021

I know I said in the episode that I don’t need help but spoiler alert - I actually do. After listening back to our interview with Randi I couldn’t help but wonder why do we value self-sufficiency above all else? For years I wore this as a badge of honor and in reality there is no one...

Do you have an expensive MBA? Sep 13, 2021

Do you have an expensive MBA? We talked a little bit this week about some of our most costly mistakes while building The Bradford. We didn’t always make the best decisions when it came with the design and the budget. But we both agree our biggest and most costly mistake (that we call our...

Are we leaving our industry better than we found it? Aug 30, 2021

Oof- I remember recording this episode with Lauren and feeling an immense amount of personal responsibility. Are we leaving our industry better than we found it? Are there things that we have “avoidance” for? We dove a little bit into that in this conversation with sisters episode,...

Ethics in Business? Aug 23, 2021

Owning a business can be hard, soul crushing, and seemingly unending at times. There are days that I work all day, get the kids fed and in bed, and work well into the night to get my list done! I have had to make numerous personal sacrifices personally to get to where we are today  - and you...

The Fear of Failure Aug 16, 2021

Failure. 

Who hates that word?! I know that I do. I hate failing. I hate being wrong, and I hate disappointing myself. Failure was (and still can sometimes be) a hard thing to come to terms with. What I LOVED about this episode with Jordan was that he put into words something I felt but...
