If I thought I'd experienced pinch me moments before, recording this episode redefined that concept for me. Not only was I lucky enough to spend a week on Necker Island with the incredible Business Chicks team, a bunch of other amazing women and Sir Richard himself (who you will know threw me a pretty outrageous bachelorette party), I got the chance to hear from and then sit down with the inimitable Laura Brown.
There aren't really words to describe this woman - Laura is an absolute force to be reckoned with making her way from a NSW dairy farm to Manhattan to take over the reigns of one of America's biggest and most influential titles as Editor in Chief of InStyle magazine. She is truly one in a million with her vibrance, grandeur (or delusions thereof as she likes to say) and creative vision but also her humility, sense of humour and the inner Sheila that the US is unable to beat out of her.
Despite a network that encouraged even Sir Richard to jest at her name dropping and the ability to rub shoulders with the world's elite with ease, Laura is also incredibly easy to get along with and more down to earth than you'd expect as are most of our guests - I know I sometimes sound like a broken record but it's something that stands out so much for me. We jump all over the place in this chat while enjoying the soothing sounds of the Caribbean ocean that we left in for your enjoyment, so there's lots of random chatter and giggles but her crazy brain is why I love this woman so much - hope you love her too!
