    Pivot, Pivot, Pivot! How to Identify New Opportunities and Capitalize on Them With Alana Branston and Ali Kriegsman, Co-Founders of Bulletin

    Pivot, Pivot, Pivot! How to Identify New Opportunities and Capitalize on Them With Alana Branston and Ali Kriegsman, Co-Founders of Bulletin

    2020 was filled with unexpected challenges that most small business owners were unprepared for, requiring us to pivot and adapt to new, ever-changing realities. Now, after a year of quick pivots, it's time for us to identify and capitalize on new opportunities in 2021 with purpose, which is why I'm so excited for today's conversation with Alana Branston and Ali Kriegsman, the co-founders of the online wholesale platform Bulletin. It’s safe to say these two entrepreneurs know a thing or two about changing course. Since launching in 2015, they’ve pivoted their business several times, from a shoppable newsletter, to weekly pop-ups, to brick-and-mortar shops and now, to an online wholesale marketplace that has thrived during COVID. I’m so excited to talk to them today about how they’ve pivoted, identified and capitalized on new opportunities, secured venture capital funding to scale, and so much more. So, without further adieu . . .Welcome to WorkParty, Alana and Ali! • Join the party on social @workparty and stay in-the-know at workparty.com.

    From Self-Made to Shelf Space: How to Scale a Business With Monique Rodriguez, Founder and CEO of Mielle Organics

    From Self-Made to Shelf Space: How to Scale a Business With Monique Rodriguez, Founder and CEO of Mielle Organics

    Welcome to a special episode of WorkParty Live from our Self-Care Summit with Monique Rodriguez, the founder and CEO of Mielle Organics. This founder knows a thing or two about scaling a business! In 2014, she started mixing up homemade haircare solutions in her kitchen. Now her brand has grown into a multi-million-dollar company with products sold in over 100,000 major retailers, including Target, Walgreens, and CVS. And, earlier this year, Monique secured a “significant investment” for Mielle Organics from Berkshire, which typically makes equity investments of $100 million to $1 billion in size. But it’s not just about turning a profit for Monique. She’s paying it forward with her More Than a Strand philanthropic initiative, which includes $200,000 in scholarships for HBCU students and $1 million for the brand’s Global Education and Entrepreneurship Program in partnership with Rutgers University and the Newark Business Hub. In this episode of WorkParty, Jaclyn chats with Monique about how she scaled her business from self-made to shelf space and how she’s paying it forward to fellow entrepreneurs along the way. • Join the party on social @workparty and stay in-the-know at workparty.com.

    From Part-Time Groomer to Full-Time Entrepreneur: How Jess Rona Followed Parallel Paths to Build Her Dream Career

    How many times have you been told to “follow your passion?” It’s advice that pops up in graduation speeches, Instagram captions, and dozens of career articles. But following your passion is easier said than done. According to a recent Deloitte survey of 3,000 full-time U.S. workers, across job levels and industries, only 20% say they are truly passionate about their work. Thankfully, today's WorkParty guest knows a thing or two about how to follow a passion and turn it into a profitable business, and she's here to share her insights. Jess Rona has turned what was once a part-time career as a dog groomer into a full-fledged business complete with a celebrity client list, a coffee table book, and an HBO Max series. And it all started with a viral Instagram video. I can’t wait to talk with the actress, comedian, and celebrity dog groomer about how she turned her passion into dollars and cents. So, without further ado—welcome to WorkParty, Jess! • Join the party on social @workparty and stay in-the-know at workparty.com.

    Over the past year, at-home workouts have soared––but there is one platform that stands out from the rest. Meet P.volve: the accessible, at-home fitness method everyone is talking about. In short, this method combines resistance-based, high-intensity, low-impact movements to strengthen, sculpt and energize the entire body.

    How Tracey Wigfield Worked Her Way to the Top: From ‘30 Rock’ Writer's Assistant To Emmy Award-Winning Comedy Writer

    How Tracey Wigfield Worked Her Way to the Top: From ‘30 Rock’ Writer's Assistant To Emmy Award-Winning Comedy Writer

    Do you remember your favorite television shows growing up––the shows that not only got you through your adolescence, but where you discovered your first ‘tv crush’ or shed a few tears during that ‘one episode’ that tugged on your heart strings and left you wanting more? We’ve all been there. And we bet you can recount those memorable scenes and quotes too. So where do the creators of these newly reimagined television shows even start when they want to reintroduce their beloved show back to the world? And how do they continue to keep their episode topics relevant and trending in an industry where the audience's attention is so quick to jump ship? Today I’m sitting down with producer and Emmy-Award-winning writer, Tracey Wigfield, to discuss exactly that - how she helped create and write the highly anticipated and reimagined Saved By The Bell TV Series, on NBCUniversal’s streaming service  Peacock. We’ll be tapping into the reimagined show, and the path that got her there - including her winning an Emmy alongside Co-Writer Tina Fey (Hello, amazing partner!) - and how she balances being a working mom in the process. Join the party on social @workparty and stay in-the-know at workparty.com.

I think I like it?

I’m a big fan of Create & Cultivate and they have great guests. The woman who reads the intros could use a bit of work. She mispronounced Ouai in the latest episode which is the brand founded by their guest, Jen Atkin. Seems unprofessional.
