    Life after working in adult film, with Mia Khalifa

    Life after working in adult film, with Mia Khalifa

    Mia Khalifa is a Lebanese-American social media personality. She’s a sports commentator. She's a content creator. And she also used to work in the adult film industry. Despite only doing it for three months, and since pivoting her career in a very different direction, she’s still one of the top-ranking adult actresses on the internet—even though she doesn’t own the rights to or profit from any of her pornography anymore. 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. Find out the lessons she's taken with her, some of the most troubling issues she dealt with in the adult film industry, and how she’s charting a new course forward.

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

    Clare Vivier first got the idea for her handbag business while working as a journalist for French TV. She was looking for functional, but stylish laptop cases and, when she couldn’t find one, she made her own. 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. Plus, hear how one encounter with a buyer provided a difficult, but valuable lesson on how to best price your products.
