Before Farnoosh Torabi was on CNBC, writing for ‘O’ Magazine, and a personal finance expert known for her top-rated ‘So Money’ podcast… she did something that changed her career forever: She wrote and published a book.
On Glambition Radio, my friend Farnoosh reveals why her bestselling books have been hands-down the most powerful assets in her career, and pivotal in establishing her authority and brand in her industry. She pulls back the curtain on her background and unique position in finance, including the painful moment she was laid off in her twenties (and how having a published book saved her career).

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.

On GlambitionRadio.com, Christina shares how she built her company—the only direct-to-consumer floral company owned by a woman (despite women being the majority of flower consumers). Before Farmgirl Flowers, no one had innovated in the industry since the ’90s…and it was easy to tell.

She says we’ve been approaching disruption—and growth—completely backward. And bestselling author and leadership disruptor Charlene Li is here to change that.

Her perspective is different from any I’ve heard before, and it affirmed of some of the disruptive decisions I’ve made that at times weren’t understood by my team and clients.

Caroline Criado-Perez, Activist + Author of ‘Invisible Women’ — Glambition Radio Episode 180 with Ali Brown

The cars we buy, the drugs we’re prescribed, even the A/C settings in conference rooms — are determined by data. And disturbingly, most of this data stems from ‘objective scientific’ research that still today completely leaves out half of the population: women. On GlambitionRadio.com, author and activist Caroline Criado-Perez reveals the shocking impact on women of a world designed by (and for) for men, and how she decided to write ‘Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men’.
On #GlambitionRadio, Caroline also opens up about the frightening experience when her campaign for better women’s representation on English currency led to such a level of harassment on Twitter (death threats and worse) that the platform changed their complaint procedures as a result.

On this solo episode, I share some stories of metrics gone right… and wrong… including examples of both the new strategy Madonna is using for her tour and the grand fiasco of WeWork’s failed IPO. (Two opposite ends of the spectrum!)

I also disclose an important shift I made in the metrics I decided to STOP honoring and those I decided to START honoring, once I had my twins six years ago.
