How to beat the odds—and win, with Morgan DeBaun, founder and CEO of Blavity

EAs one of the few young, black female founders in Silicon Valley, Morgan DeBaun is in a league of her own. And as the founder and CEO of Blavity, she's grown the media and technology company from a small newsletter to the largest digital media brand for black millennials and Gen Z-ers. Under Morgan’s leadership, Blavity has acquired two other media properties and she’s raised more than $9M in venture funding for the business. But that’s only part of Morgan’s entrepreneurial streak. She’s also launched successful summits, like #AfroTech (which just so happens to be thelargesttech conference in Silicon Valley for African Americans)—and, she’s even launched her own skincare line. Achieving all of this, though, wasn’t as easy as it is to list off her accomplishments. Tune in to this week’s episode of Girlboss Radio, where Sophia sits down for an honest and frank conversation with Morgan about the unique challenges female founders face in Silicon Valley and why, from Day One, Morgan was thinking strategically about how she could beat the odds and make her mark as an entrepreneur. Listen wherever you get your podcasts.

How to turn connections into business, with Emma Grede, co-founder and CEO of Good American

EAfter years of working in the fashion industry, Emma Grede felt exhausted by the lack of diversity on runways, in ads, and behind the scenes.

In 2016, they launched their brand with a wide array of sizes, and have continued to put their money where their morals are with diverse campaigns. This week on Girlboss Radio, Grede talks about creating the pitch that changed her life, the future of the fashion industry, and scaling a company while keeping her values at the heart of it all.

How to ask for what you want—and get it, with Amy Pascal, film producer and business executive

EAh, imposter syndrome. Many of us know it as more than just a buzzword—we know it to be a very real experience of feeling unqualified, unprepared, and unworthy, despite all evidence to the contrary. While nearly 70 percent of all people experience imposter syndrome in their lives according to The Journal of Behavioral Science, it's a hot button issue for women in the workplace in particular, who have more access to male-dominated industries, high-ranking positions, and financial power than ever before. This week, on GirlbossRadio, we hear from business executive and film producer Amy Pascal (she's behind some of your fave female-centric films including Little Women and the 2016 Ghostbusters remake) on how to not feel like a fake when you *are* the real deal. Plus, hear exactly how to ask for more money at any job, how you can elevate other women in your industry, and when you know it's time to walk away. Tune in for plenty of work wisdom, wherever you listen to podcasts. Have feedb...

Her brief stint in the world of adult film informed so much of where she is today, from her personal life to her professional one. On this week’s episode of Girlboss Radio is an honest, vulnerable conversation with a woman who has faced controversy head-on, and is willing to admit she learned a lot from it.

Bootstrapping a business from the ground up, with Clare Vivier, founder of Clare V.

EClare Vivier first got the idea for her handbag business while working as a journalist for French TV.

Many other designs followed in the years after, including chic handbags made with luxury materials in colorful, understated designs. In the decade since that first design, Clare has upgraded her business, Clare V, into a well-respected handbag and accessories line that is stocked in retailers ranging from Net-a-Porter to Nordstrom, along with her flagship store in Silver Lake. Tune in to this episode of Girlboss Radio to hear how Clare bootstrapped the business early on, why she insists on producing products locally and how she knew she found the right business partner.
