    Cate Luzio of Luminary - Walking It Off

    Cate Luzio of Luminary - Walking It Off

    For Cate Luzio, founder and CEO of Luminary, a collaborative hub and co-working space for professional women centered around learning, gathering and connecting, what keeps her going is the mindset she learned from her father: “just walk it off.” Cate had a successful career in international banking and at one point was told to slow down because it made her colleagues look bad. Cate wanted to make a bigger and broader impact, which led her to write the business plan for Luminary and launch this unique space for women. After just one year, Luminary has grown by more than 600 members plus some 30 corporate members and pivoted to digital membership during the quarantine without missing a beat. Cate joins scaling coach Julia Pimsleur to share her journey, including: how she learned that, as an entrepreneur, you have to run your own race; why her experience with IVF inspired a determination to have an impact and, ultimately, led to creating Luminary; and, how having parents who were an FBI agent and a teacher made Cate who she is today.

    Ashley Kalinauskas of Torigen - The Startup That Saves Pets

    Ashley Kalinauskas is founder and CEO of Torigen, a company focused on providing personalized cancer immunotherapies — for pets. She is also on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. She turned down a huge job opportunity after grad school in order to pursue building her own company, and she never looked back. And, when possible investors questioned her as CEO, she took stock of the situation -- and found new investors. Ashley joins Julia Pimsleur to share her story, including what it's been like for Ashley to hold her own when she is often the youngest in the room, and the only woman; the three important words to create a productive mindset that are written on the wall of her office; what it was like to wake up on the day Ashley knew she was going to insist to investors she would be the CEO of the company she founded; and, what Ashley learned from two coyotes when she was on one of the most important calls of her professional life.

    Caroline and Isabel Bercaw of Da Bomb Bath Fizzers - Sisterpreneur Success

    Caroline and Isabel Bercaw of Da Bomb Bath Fizzers - Sisterpreneur Success

    Isabel and Caroline Bercaw started Da Bomb Bath Fizzers after experimenting with scents and bath products at their own home in Minnesota. They were 10 and 11 years old. A year later they sold out on their first day at an art fair, and got their first order from a local salon. Not long after, they were approached by Target for a national distribution deal. It takes a strong mindset to make a business succeed and still have to take your finals. For Isabel and Caroline, the mindset was a mixture of curiosity, tenacity, and amazing family support. Now, they are 17 and 19, and Da Bomb is 5 years old with $20M in annual revenue (see their feature in Entrepreneur Magazine at https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/337846). The whole family is involved and they have big plans for international expansion. Isabel and Caroline join Julia Pimsleur to share their journey, including how a local salon owner gave them their first vote of confidence as a business; the moment their grandmother came to the rescue after their first website failed expectations; what happened in the period they called "The Dark Ages" when they lived among bath bombs everywhere; why the sound of a tape gun still gives them chills; and, what the sisters have already learned about self-care and pacing themselves.

    Corporate Social Responsibility Expert Susan McPherson - A Force for Good

    Corporate Social Responsibility Expert Susan McPherson - A Force for Good

    “Nothing is a prison sentence” . When something doesn’t work, you can always make a new choice. That was advice McPherson heard from her father, and it has stayed with her.  Susan is an angel investor, serial connector, and founder of McPherson Strategies (a corporate social responsibility firm working at the intersection of branding and social good). On a trip to Afghanistan with other women who wanted to make a difference, Susan saw, first-hand, that business could be a force for good. Today, her company has entered its seventh year and she just returned from Antarctica where she saw climate change up close and discovered the soothing effect of penguins. Susan shares her journey with Julia Pimsleur, including: why corporate social responsibility is no longer a "nice to have" and how Susan was a pioneer in creating value at the cross section of business and social good; how dogs are a tonic for the soul and offer a daily mindset boost; why fighting loneliness is like battling cigarette addiction; and, what writing her book has taught her about making real connections in the workplace.
