Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “Do one thing every day that scares you.”
She’s one of the most inspiring first ladies ever. So I took her advice. Facing my fears—both big and small—changed everything, and for the better.
I’m Molly Mogren Katt — and this is Hey Eleanor Podcast—where we talk about fear, anxiety and unleashing the awesomeness hiding in your discomfort zone.

Cindy Joseph is a hippie-turned-make-up artist. At 49, she decided to stop dying her silver hair because she wanted to show women that aging wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. The day after the last of her dyed hair was chopped off, she was approached on the streets of NYC to do an international modeling campaign for Dolce & Gabanna. She’s been modeling ever since, and even launched her own what she’s dubbed a “pro-age" makeup line called Boom by Cindy Jospeh. I talk to her about why she actually loves getting older, why women need to stop combatting their fear with makeup, plus how to be beautiful at any age.
Hey Eleanor! I Pitched My Product to Target & Won!
Amy Regan worked for L'Oreal right out of college, then eventually moved to Jo Malone in London. Eventually, she met a handsome Canadian and moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, believing her days in the cosmetics business were over. While there, she discovered a healing salve, made locally by the same family for over 130 years. She loved the product so much, that she eventually bought the company. We talk about the responsibility of taking over an heirloom brand, her decision to do things the hard way, plus the big, scary thing she did: pitching her products to one of the biggest retailers in the world and succeeding. PS the elevator pitch happened in an actual elevator.

We about the biggest advantages to traveling alone, how to take most of the fear out of solo travel (hint: use your brain and plan ahead), plus her favorite travel gear.
Hey Eleanor! I Started My Own Business!
Paleo blogger and cookbook author Melissa Joulwan has helped change the way hundreds of thousands of people think about nutrition. But guys, we’re not going to do another podcast on the paleo diet. Instead, I’m talking to Mel J about what it's like to work for yourself. She and her husband David said buh-bye to The Man years ago, and have learned tons about running a successful small business. We chat about how her super-successful cookbook series Well Fed changed her life, the importance of not comparing yourself to others, plus her favorite summer reads.
Hey Eleanor! I Made a Movie!
This week, I’m talking to my brother, Andy Mogren. He’s a Minnesota transplant living in LA. He's spent the last five years making, then pitching an ever-evolving television concept that he writes, produces, directs, scores, edits, animates and stars in. Really. I talk to him about what it’s like to move to LA (Or as our dad likes says: Hollywood, Los Angeles, California), rejection, plus screening a movie you spent a year creating in front of a live audience. Spoiler alert: Sometimes, it doesn’t go that well.
