    Ilana Fischer of Whisps - Getting to Yes

    Getting to “yes”. That’s been a mantra that has driven Intraprenista-turned-Entreprenista Ilana Fischer, cofounder and CEO of Whisps, to turn a simple idea (to turn an ingredient into a snack) into an amazing, and delicious, company, and a new food category. Eventually this led to spinning it off from her employer. Now Whisps, the tastiest cheese crisps you’ve ever tasted, is up to five flavors, sold in major retailers from Costco to Amazon to Target, and growing fast! Ilana joins Socialfly Co-Founders Stephanie Cartin and Courtney Spritzer for a conversation about her career and describes her journey to success, including how the Whisps team had to pull a launch of a new flavor, and why the solution led to creating an exclusive cheese of their own; the challenges and joys of being a mom who is an entrepreneur; why a tragedy makes Ilana appreciate what she has now, and why her heart has been stretched two ways; managing a major rebrand; tips for hiring the right team; and, what Mindy Kaling has taught Ilana.

    Marie Forleo is an entrepreneur, writer, philanthropist & unshakeable optimist dedicated to helping people become the person they most want to be. She should know — after an unfulfilling start on Wall Street, it was a call for advice with her dad that motivated her to realize she must re-embrace her creative side, which ultimately lead her to work at “Mademoiselle” and discover the world of life coaching. Fast forward to today: she’s built  a socially conscious digital empire that has touched millions, with an award-winning show MarieTV, world-class online training programs, a book in 16 languages, and an audience in 195 countries! Marie joins Socialfly Co-Founders Stephanie Cartin and Courtney Spritzer for a conversation about her career and describes her journey to success, including how Marie got so good at digital marketing; why saying no to things can make you feel joyful; the harsh reality of opportunity cost; how tapping into your body that can offer a simple test for what’s a bad choice vs. what is merely outside your comfort zone; the value of listening to your “little voice” of intuition; how a craving for a croissant led to the decision to close her business for four weeks every year; and, why Marie’s demand to change her book cover at the eleventh hour made so much sense.
