    New Year New Show!

    New Year New Show!

    Hello! It’s been a while. It’s 2021 Boss Ladies! I’ve been MIA for a minute and with good reason. I decided to take a holiday break to spend with my family and set everything in motion for a new year.
    I am going to continue these conversations but it’s going to be on our new YouTube Channel!  I am developing a new interview series for Youtube featuring more ambitious women who are taking the lead to empower themselves and others to live their best lives. I will let you know soon how to subscribe to the Ladies Take the Lead Youtube channel.
    Our new podcast relaunching February 2021 is a documentary style series with commentary that explores and celebrates the lives of female trailblazers who have propelled their industries forward and the women who are continuing their legacies. I’m sharing stories about the famous, the overlooked and never heard of badass women who have taken the lead and changed the world.
    The Boss Lady Insider is a membership that gives you access to our community, exclusive content, curated events, and opportunities to get featured on our platform and social media. Visit our website at ladiestakethelead.com to become a Boss Lady Insider.
    With that said, I am excited to announce that Ladies Take the Lead is now Ladies Take the Lead Media! I’m on a mission to produce content that empowers, enlightens and encourages women to live their best lives.
    Ladies Take the Lead is produced by me, Alina Fridman. 
    Executive Produced by Conal O’Herlihy for No One Else Media.

    Cucina Queen - Ale Gambini

    Cucina Queen - Ale Gambini

    Food feeds the body and nourishes the soul. It’s the way to a man’s and women’s heart and brings people together on so many levels. Food is love, it is joy and it tastes best when prepared by a chef with passion for food.
    “I came from a family where food was the first thing in the morning and the last thing at night before going to sleep.” – Ale Gambini
     Chef Ale Gambini, aka A Queen in the Kitchen, is an LA-based Italian food ambassador, writer, award-winning host in online food programs, and cooking instructor.  Born and raised in beautiful Milan, Northern Italy, she learned how to cook and love good food from her beloved grandmother Nonna Fernanda.
    Chef Ale talks about changing careers mid-life, her arrival to the States from Italy and why it’s important to open the door when opportunity knocks. Chef Ale’s second book, “No Ketchup on Spaghetti” is out this month available on Amazon. This book celebrates Italy's excellent food and serves up an understanding of the ingredients, where to find them, and how to prepare them. Italian food is so much more than pizza and pasta; from regional specialties to gourmet delicacies, you'll need multiple lifetimes to try them all!
    Here are all the link to connect and follow Chef Ale and watch her cooking show:

    As this year comes to an end, I am planning several events for 2021. Most of which will take place online because we’re still living in a Covid world. But, there is a silver lining and that is because our events will be virtual, we’re able to connect with so many more women entrepreneurs from coast to coast. Visit the website at ladiestakethelead.com to check for event announcements. 
    Better yet, become a member of our community and get notified of upcoming events, workshops, special discounts and offers. Our exclusive community is where you can network, collaborate, ask your peers for advice or share your knowledge and promote your brand. 
    The community offers networking opportunities on a totally different level. The goal is to help you connect with like-minded women, explore new possibilities, and leverage your collective energy into business opportunities. And it's absolutely free!
    Think of it as Facebook meets LinkedIn specifically for women entrepreneurs. Visit the website, click on COMMUNITY, sign up, create a profile and start connecting today! https://www.ladiestakethelead.com/ladies-take-the-lead-community

    Open Impressionist - Erin Hanson

    Open Impressionist - Erin Hanson

    I had the pleasure of discussing art with Erin Hanson who is a San Diego- based artist, considered to be the originator of the painting style called "Open Impressionism" .  Her landscape paintings have been shown at solo and group exhibitions and museums worldwide.
    Even if you’re not in the art business, Erin drops a lot of gems that can and should be practiced in any business.  She also discussed being a mom in business, bringing your kids to work and co-sleeping.
    You can find Erin on her website at erinhanson.com and be sure to follow her on Instagram @erinhansonartist

An amazing community

As a female entrepreneur there is a comfort and solidarity in this community. There is so much power in storytelling, the lessons you can learn as well as taking comfort in knowing someone else has lived through your struggles. I feel like I know all of these ladies, thank you for sharing and thank you Alina for this platform.
