    She sued the New York Subway to make a stand for women’s pleasure & now she’s here to tell us what really went down (and how much the legal fees cost!) with Dame Founder Alexandra Fine

    Today on the show we have Alexandra Fine. One of the women behind Dame. Dame is leading a sexual wellness revolution as a women-powered resource for game-changing products for pleasure and supportive content. Through in-depth research, smart design, community input, and plenty of empathy, the Dame team has designed a line of exceptional tools to enhance sexual wellness for vulva-havers and their partners everywhere.

    Dame is not only revolutionizing toys for sex, but changing the way we experience, understand, and explore sexuality as part of holistic wellbeing. Since 2014, the team has opened doors that have long been closed to the sexuality industry, becoming a key player in the movement to bring pleasure to the forefront of wellness.

    We talk through her approach to building this business, crowdfunding, marketing and how she uses the businesses challenges as her opportunity. You might have heard that Dame sued the MTA and has had some pretty exciting stuff in the works these past few weeks.

    Dancer turned entrepreneur, Nude Barre Founder Erin Carpenter started her company with $3,000 of her savings. Now Serena Williams is an investor.

    Dancer turned entrepreneur, Nude Barre Founder Erin Carpenter started her company with $3,000 of her savings. Now Serena Williams is an investor.

    Today on the show we’re learning from Erin Carpenter - the dancer turned entrepreneur behind Nude Barre. She bootstrapped this business for a good 10 years before things really started get veryyy interesting. We talk about that 10 year grind to overnight success. The investment she got from Serena Williams and 1 thing to remember about affiliates.

    Nude Barre is a high-performing bodywear brand redefining the concept of nude. Nude Barre carries the widest shade range on the market, leading the conversation around inclusivity and authentic representation in fashion today and was born from the firsthand frustrations and colorism that Erin experienced. Growing up as a Black woman and dancer, she experienced years of hardships finding hosiery that matched her skin tone, often spending hours dyeing her tights and “pancakeing” her shoes to meet the industry’s requirement of “nude” undergarments.
