Georgina Gooley Chases Fulfillment, Not Success Girlboss Radio

    • Careers

Georgina Gooley is the co-founder of Billie, a razor and shaving brand that flipped the conversation by being the first to show women's hair in their advertisements. Three days after launching, the razors had shipped to all 50 states and Gooley was featured on the front page of the BBC. That kind of success can easily go to a founder's head, but Gooley keeps an even keel, and maintains that fulfillment is more important than success.
Avery speaks to Georgina about getting her start in NYC's advertising world, what keeps her up at night and work insecurities. Plus, our Ask a Girlboss segment has some invaluable advice about making your mark in a traditionally male-dominated industry.
