I’m still on a high from my #ICONICwithAliBrown event two weeks ago. The most common comment I received at the end of the event from each attendee was that their ‘game’ has been dramatically raised and they are looking forward to stepping into much bigger businesses and impact.
We all had our minds blown by my friend and our guest speaker Cindy Eckert (a huge women’s health advocate who sold her company for $1 Billion). She shared her insights on thinking BIG, being resourceful, and being relentless when you have a goal.
And then there was THE BIG REVEAL of my next level of ICONIC work—the legacy project I’ve been developing behind the scenes. I’ll share more on that soon….
Since ICONIC, Brett and I have been on the road, attending EY’s invitation-only Strategic Growth Forum in Palm Desert. It was great to reconnect with so many of the amazing women there whom I’ve met over the past several years in the EY Winning Women group—women with fast-growing businesses in the 8- and 9-figures.
Last but not least… did you catch these recent episodes of Glambition® Radio? I wanted to give you a quick update since I’ve been on the road. We’ve had so many amazing guests on the show lately….
Charlene Li says we’ve been approaching disruption—and business growth— completely backward. The bestselling author and leadership disruptor is changing that. On #GlambitionRadio, hear how growth creates disruption (not the other way around!), and why leading from the edge isn’t for everyone. Her perspective reminds me of some disruptive decisions I’ve made that I knew at times weren’t understood by my team and clients.
Stacy Madison of Stacy’s Pita Chips started by baking leftover pita bread into chips to placate her customers waiting in line. On #GlambitionRadio, hear how she turned her Boston-based sandwich cart into a nationally recognized snack company (acquired for $250 Million!). Stacy also reveals her exciting new venture: Be BOLD Bars. The all-natural snack bars are made with nut butters and other whole food ingredients.
Christina Stembel wanted to grow a big company. So when she saw that flowers were the last undisrupted industry in Silicon Valley, she founded Farmgirl Flowers. Today, the self-funded company is generating $34 Million! On #GlambitionRadio, the high-school grad shares how she built the only female owned direct-to-consumer flower company, and reveals the indirect yet clear sexism she’s faced in sourcing for and funding her company.
Now we’re happy to be back in our home office, with the twins, getting ready for the holiday next week.
