When you have insider knowledge about the newest looks, best technologies, and DIY approaches, home design truly becomes an incredibly rewarding experience. To help guide you through the process, Chip and Joanna Gaines will share their invaluable wisdom and experience, and designer Emily Henderson will walk you through the new rules of home design.

    The Unlimited Potential of the Creator Economy with Eva Longoria and Sahil Bloom

    The Unlimited Potential of the Creator Economy with Eva Longoria and Sahil Bloom

Because of that, the creator economy has completely reshaped the way we think of brands, e-commerce, and business, and influenced the way we consume media. If you’re a citizen of the Internet, you’re impacted by the content that finds its way into your social feeds daily. In this episode, actress Eva Longoria and investor-turned-influencer Sahil Bloom explore how to fine-tune your social feed and why there is still so much more room for growth for creators, new and old.

A feed favorite! 💕

First In Line is a true feed favorite! Brit has created not only an incredible listening experience with this podcast, but a valuable resource for anyone looking to keep their finger on the pulse of what’s next. Highly recommend tuning in!

Great Topics!

Brit does a great job leading the conversation - I really enjoy these topics!

-Elle Bradley, Host of the Lady Empire Podcast

I wanted to love it

I think Brit seems super friendly and I really enjoyed the “Teach me something new”. I listened to a few of the new format and to me, it fell on deaf ears. While I am happy for her and her successes…. We get it, you’re super rich. It feels like a campfire circle of mega-rich people and honestly not relatable to most. i got frustrated because every question just looped back to her with a hint of privilege. I will try to listen again and hopefully this feedback is constructive. 3 stars because I did love “teach me something new”
