    Episode 28: The Power of Disruption as a Tool To Design the Life You Want to Live with Allison Andrews Canter

    Episode 28: The Power of Disruption as a Tool To Design the Life You Want to Live with Allison Andrews Canter

    This week we chat with Allison Andrews Canter. Allison is an entrepreneur and has used the power of disruption as a tool to design the life she wants to live. After the largest fashion show in Los Angeles shut its doors, Allison saw an opportunity to create Fashion Week San Diego, which has become the largest fashion industry event on the West Coast. In her personal life, she has navigated medical crisis with her son led to a full life inventory and she made major changes. Her forthcoming book is a personal memoir with also teachable moments about how to navigate life post-divorce. When you start living an authentic life, the energy shifts and decisions get easier. As the world opens back up again, ask yourself what parts of “normal” are you really looking forward to getting back to and what parts of your previous “normal” life you can leave behind.
    Allison’s Big Ask:
    Allison is looking to connect with a publisher to help her with her first book. She is looking for guidance and connections. If you have a recommendation, can make an introduction or have advice about working with publishers, please email at info@allisonandrews.com

Permission Granted to learn from the best!

I am so excited to follow The Big Ask Podcast. Nicole’s wealth of knowledge and network of driven entrepreneurs will be on full display every episode. I was fortunate enough to take an event management course taught by Nicole at USD, now I can go back to class every time she puts out a new podcast.
