Amina Porter: CEO of PS
Amina Porter is the CEO of PS, a private, luxury airport terminal for commercial flights. The service offers commercial passengers an elevated travel experience that allows them to bypass the stress of the normal airport terminal. But before Amina was trailblazing in the aviation and travel space, she was making moves across finance, real estate, hospitality, and even had a side gig in e-commerce.

Babba C Rivera: Ceremonia Founder and CEO
Babba C Rivera is the founder and CEO of Ceremonia, a line of clean haircare products rooted in Latinx heritage. In 2020, she launched the brand with a single product—a scalp oil inspired by personal childhood rituals and her father’s early career as a hairdresser in Chile. In the three years since, Ceremonia has grown its product line, opened a brick-and-mortar store in New York, and launched in over 500 Sephora locations, becoming the first Latinx-founded haircare brand sold at the retailer. Rivera also recently raised $10 million in a Series A, making her one of only 58 Latinas to raise over $1 million in VC funding. But before Rivera was building a haircare empire, she was leading marketing teams at companies like Uber and Away, and even operated her own brand marketing company called ByBabba.

Kaelen Haworth: Fashion Designer and Creator of Absolutely Fabrics
Kaelen Haworth has carved a unique path for herself in the fashion world, gaining institutional knowledge and refining her point of view every step of the way. After graduating from Parsons, Haworth set out to create her eponymous fashion line Kaelen, which was accepted into the CFDA Fashion Incubator and then sold by retailers such as Intermix and Shopbop. Taking her learnings from that experience, she then launched a second line, the direct-to-consumer and size-inclusive brand Second Sight. But after realizing that her favorite part of the job was curation, Haworth pivoted in 2020 from designing to editorial and celebrity styling. Now, she’s embarking on yet another journey within the industry: This September, Haworth is opening a retail destination in Toronto called Absolutely Fabrics, a concept store that will stock both designer and vintage pieces, serve as a studio space, and host programming like trunk shows, shoots, and product-launch events.
As someone who just took the leap and decided to trust myself and go all in on building my dream business, this podcast is a huge source of inspiration and motivation!
Always a good time
I always look forward to every single episode that comes out, and that’s not always the case with some podcasts. People who complain about depth, why? This is a podcast on peoples careers, it’s a story they’re telling, not an episode on how to heal yourself. I personally love that it’s just a conversation between two career driven women that already know each other, makes it an easy listen. And they live in a world I don’t, which is a plus!
Courtney Storer is charming!
Thank you for interviewing Courtney Storer. I loved hearing about her fascination with restaurants.
