On what inspired her to launch a career in entrepreneurship and media:
“What we realized was that there was no outlet for college women specifically. There was a lot of high school focused media and then all of a sudden, once you graduated high school, you were forced into the world of women’s media. There was no publication out there that could help you make the most of your college experience.”
On approaching big brands and convincing them to collaborate:
“The biggest thing to know is that authenticity is everything and that connections can make an introductory email go from 0 to 60 very fast! My biggest tip is to make sure that whatever project you’re proposing, make sure it really fills a void in the marketplace – that you’re the only one that could do whatever you’re proposing well. Also, every person you meet, socially, through internships, through work, make sure you connect with them on LinkedIn.”
On the biggest lessons she’s learned in her career thus far:
1. Relationships are everything. 2. Be genuine in everything that you do. 3. Every person that you encounter is important and has value.
