    Whitney Port: Fashion Designer, Entrepreneur, and Host of With Whit

    A lot has happened since you’ve seen Whitney Port on The Hills. Today, she’s a mom, started a family with her husband Timmy, and has built a business around sharing honest conversations on topics like parenting, relationships, and everything in between. She’s the host of the With Whit podcast, as well as the wildly popular YouTube series, “I Love My Baby, But,” which gives a real look inside her journey to motherhood. In this episode, Whitney and I talk about what it was like to grow up on screen, how she transitioned her career off TV and into fashion, and her thoughts on parenting during a pandemic, as well as some of her best relationship advice while stuck at home.

    Holly Thaggard: CEO and Founder, Supergoop!

    Holly Thaggard: CEO and Founder, Supergoop!

    Holly Thaggard is the Founder of Supergoop!, the first and only lifestyle brand 100% dedicated to UV protection. After one of her close friends was diagnosed with skin cancer at 30-years-old, Holly set out to change the way the world thinks about SPF through clean, feel-good, highly innovative formulas. She launched Supergoop! in 2007, and has now scaled to a full protective skincare line of primers, highlighters, moisturizers, eye shadows, and makeup setting powders and sprays. Supergoop! has been included in Allure’s “Best of Beauty” list six years in a row, is the #1 SPF at Sephora, and sells one of Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40s every 20 seconds. Holly has dedicated the past 13 years of her life to developing new ways to infuse SPF into your favorite products that have traditionally never been made with your skin’s health in mind, advocating for skin health in DC and creating a community of SPF superfans. In this episode, Holly tells us all about the latest launch, the re-imagination of their cult favorite CC cream which now comes in 15 new shades. We also talk about how she went from a school teacher to changing the global conception of SPF, her best advice for entrepreneurs, and her thoughts on everything from blue light, to Vitamin D, and more.

Today, The Morning Brew is received by more than 2.5 million readers daily with the goal of providing digestible content and changing the way young professionals engage with the business world. In this episode, Alex and I talk about the niche world of email marketing, how he built a multi-platform company that did $13.5M in revenue by 25-years-old, and the importance of vulnerability within his entrepreneurial journey,

    Dr. Kouroush Maddahi: Lumineux and Re-Imagining Our Microbiome

    Dr. Kouroush Maddahi: Lumineux and Re-Imagining Our Microbiome

    Dr. Kouroush Maddahi is a leading dentist in Beverly Hills and a best selling author of his latest book, The Toxic Overload: The Truth About Your Body’s Natural Defenses and How to Experience Whole-Body Health. He is one of the most well-known dentists today and has been practicing for over 33 years, creating smiles and improving the overall health of his clients through dentistry. But his passion and mission is driven around informing his patients about the connection between our oral health and our microbiome - the genetic material of all the microbes - bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses - that live on and inside the human body. In a time where sanitizers are our lifeline, he’s arguing the opposite through his first-ever non toxic, organically-derived line of oral products, Luminuex. In this episode, Dr. Maddahi, joined by Lumineux’s Chief Brand Officer Caroline Duggan, tells us where we’re going wrong with caring for our teeth, the lifelong consequences we could deal with, and the quick fixes that we can make to our routine right now that will ensure a healthier life.

    Fanny Bourdette Donon: Special Projects, Dior

    Fanny Bourdette-Donon is the International PR and Special Projects Manager for Dior Beauty. Fanny was raised in Rwanda, studied in France, and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in fashion where she had a chance encounter with Dior’s Jérôme Pulis - a meeting that would kick start her career within the luxury house. Today, she’s one of the most well known names in the business of fashion, working closely with the luxury house’s brand ambassadors, coordinating public relations internationally, and is an influential figure herself for her enviable style and inspirational work ethic. In this episode, Fanny and I discuss the movement for Black Lives Matter and how it’s dramatically shifted her mindset, what it means to be a Black woman in the fashion industry and in France, and the importance of allyship in the mission for equality.
