Molly Ford created what Forbes called the "super successful lifestyle site" Smart, Pretty & Awkward - a highly-trafficked blog that gives three piece of advice each post: how to be smarter, how to be prettier, and how to be (less) awkward.
Smart, Pretty & Awkward has grown into a vital platform regularly featured in national press, including a weekly column that appeared in Parade magazine, and the site’s 5-year anniversary celebration drew 200+ readers to an event in downtown Manhattan. Molly also works full-time in brand marketing for a tech company. She has an undergraduate business degree focused on finance and entrepreneurship, and a master’s degree in international marketing.
