    Holly Cardew - Pixc

    Holly Cardew - Pixc

    Have you ever had an idea but parked it because you feel like you don't have the right skills or knowledge?  This conversation with Holly Cardew is a fantastic example of a non-technical founder building a multi-million dollar tech business. That business is Pixc - a platform for online retailers to edit their product shots. And...she's managed to build this with an entirely virtual team. 

    Holly is the product of accelerator programs both in Australia and in the US, and she now splits her time between Silicon Valley and Melbourne. 
    We covered a lot in this chat, including:
    How to build a completely remote workforce
    What to think about if you're considering to be part of an accelerator program 
    The dos and don'ts of operating in Silicon Valley
    How she managed to find out how Mailchimp's founder built his list from 10k to 1 million
    The future of software, and how Pixc is building an AI capability 
    How to get traction on your landing page 101

    Sasha Benz - Cinq, All My Friends Are Models, Wyld Blue, Baybi Pop

    Sasha Benz - Cinq, All My Friends Are Models, Wyld Blue, Baybi Pop

    How do you build a rolodex with high-value contacts and keep these relationships warm so they pay-off in the long run?

    Sasha Benz is the Aussie Born, New York based, founder of four businesses, as well as the Creative Director of The Surf Lodge – Montauks “it destination” (no joke…when we were there, Beyoncé was in town).  At 24, she moved to New York to pursue a career in fashion and styling before starting two businesses, both of which failed to get off the ground. After experiencing these setbacks, she dug deep and went on to launch fashion blog ‘All My Friends Are Models’, social networking app Cinq, and two retail stores in Montauk. 

    In this chat we cover: 
    Why two of her first businesses failed, and the lessons she learned
    The importance of building your rolodex, and how every opportunity has come through one of her contacts
    The challenge with transitioning out of a creative industry into tech, and how she’s managed to quickly up-skill
    The importance of brand partnerships and how to make sure you’re pursuing the right ones 
    The power of word of mouth
    The process of raising money for her tech start-up  
    Why relationships are the most important thing and should be invested in above all else

    Bec Donlan - Sweat with Bec, Go Basic

    Bec Donlan - Sweat with Bec, Go Basic

    How do you recover after losing your life savings? And what affect does this have on your business?

    Bec Donlan is a personal trainer and health coach, and is better known as Sweat with Bec. She’s also the founder of Go Basic, a natural healthy snack company. After years of hustling in NYC as a trainer to some of the biggest celebrities and models, Bec realised an opportunity in a rapidly expanding CBD industry and decided to infuse many of her Go Basic products with small doses of CBD (the non-intoxicating compound of the cannabis plant).

    This is a very frank and honest conversation with Bec, where we cover:
    Her personal motivations for starting Go Basic
    Money pressures and how to navigate them
    How spending her life savings on back surgery led her to starting Go Basic
    Navigating an unpredictable landscape around CBD-infused products in the USA

    Babba Rivera - ByBabba, HER Network

    Babba Rivera - ByBabba, HER Network

    What does it take to market a product to the millennial audience? And how do you make it meaningful? 

    In this episode of LADY-LAND we chatted with Swedish-born Babba Rivera – the brand marketing guru!  At 21 she launched Uber into Sweden, making Stockholm the fastest growing launch city ever. At 25, she landed herself on the Forbes 30 under 30 list.

    She’s been the Head of Marketing at Away, the direct-to-consumer luggage start-up that was recently valued at over $1 billion. And as if that wasn’t enough, she founded her own brand and marketing agency ByBabba, and is the co-founder of HER Network, a global community that supports women in the workplace. 

    Her insights are inspiring and are great food for thought. We covered a lot in this chat, including: 
    How she created the opportunity for herself at Uber at such a young age
    How she built Uber in Sweden by targeting early adopters in the tech community 
    How she landed a role at Uber in NYC by pitching herself a new role to her boss 
    Working as head of fashion partnerships at Uber in NYC 
    Transitioning to Away at a time of insane growth, and how she coped working in such a chaotic environment 
    The decision to quit her full-time role and start her own brand marketing agency 
    How to market to millennials, and how to make it meaningful 
    Her experience working with huge brands like Bumble & Glossier 
    Co-founding the HER Global Network, and how she landed on the decision to introduce a paid membership model

    CJ Hendry - Artist (Part A)

    CJ Hendry - Artist (Part A)

    Artist CJ Hendry is one of Australia's most fascinating exports. You may know her as the face of hyperrealism: that's the style of art that is so damn lifelike it could be a photograph. She's caught the art world's attention by independently selling her pieces online for tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars - and she calls Kanye West one of her customers. Over this two-part interview you'll hear her journey to becoming one of the world's most disruptive young artists. She is energetic, hilarious and generous, she does not ask for permission and stops at nothing to make her next big idea a reality.
