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)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.
