    Unpacking #Girlboss Feminism with Hari Nef

    Unpacking #Girlboss Feminism with Hari Nef

    Yup, we’re going there. In this episode, Puno chats with Hari Nef, an actress, model, and writer who isn’t a huge fan of the term “girl boss.”
    Puno and Hari discuss the rise of #Girlboss feminism in the wake of Trumpism and the Women’s March back in 2017, and whether or not that ideology is still relevant today.
    Hari Nef was the the first openly transgender woman signed to IMG Models, starred in the Emmy-winning television series Transparent, and is currently working on writing her own television series, which you’ll hear all about in this episode! 
    Tune in for a spicy episode: in the words of Hari, “I actually took a poll on my finsta, ‘should I go on the Girilboss podcast?’ And the two options were ‘go on and be spicy’ or ‘die cool.’ And most people voted to go on and be spicy, so I'm here and I'm going to be spicy.”

    How to Create a Vision for Your Business With Sincerely Tommy’s Kai Avent-deLeon

    How to Create a Vision for Your Business With Sincerely Tommy’s Kai Avent-deLeon

    So, what does it take to open a small retail business? It’s no easy feat. If you ask Kai Avant-DeLeon—the owner of Sincerely, Tommy, a Brooklyn-based concept store and coffee bar focused on emerging womenswear, lifestyle, and community—she’ll tell you it takes trusting yourself and truly manifesting your vision. And when it comes to tips on hiring for your small business, it’s all about finding people who share your vision put together a well-thought-out resume, and cover letter that shows they’re truly invested in your company (and no, that doesn’t mean simply DM-ing an Instagram profile). Kai says, “You also want to hire people who take themselves as seriously as you do.”
    She’s also adamant that one of the most important things about being a business owner is prioritizing self-care with simple—yet extraordinarily effective—things, like carving out time for yourself, meditating, journaling, and escaping the hustle of the city, which are a true recipe for success.

    How TikTok Marketing Grew Wasi Clothing During the Pandemic With Vanessa Acosta

    How TikTok Marketing Grew Wasi Clothing During the Pandemic With Vanessa Acosta

    This week on Girlboss Radio, Puno talks business and TikTok marketing with our guest Vanessa Acosta, the one-woman show behind sustainable, ethical clothing brand Wasi, whose designs are made with textiles personally sourced from South America and handmade from scratch in LA. 

    Acosta is a Bolivian-American businesswoman who quite literally does it all for her business: she’s a graphic designer, fashion designer, photographer, and marketer. If that’s not the definition of a solopreneur—and girl boss—we’re not sure what is.

    In this episode, you’ll hear about Acosta’s journey of starting her own business after losing her job in fashion due to the pandemic, what it’s really like running an ethical and sustainable clothing brand, and how TikTok for your small business can be a major tool for growth (she single-handedly tripled her sales in 2020, and attributes it to her TikTok marketing).
    Puno and Acosta talk about the challenges of becoming an entrepreneur as an immigrant, feeling like for their story to be worthwhile it has to be grand and inspirational, as well as living up to the standards set out by their parents.
    This episode is brimming with both inspiration and TikTok marketing tips and tricks.
