1. What are three words that best describe your personal brand?

Authentic, Inspiring, Role Model

2. Tell us why you’re awesome in two sentences or less.

My heart is awesome. And big. And bold. And it allows me to be vulnerable and brave with my audience, which they can relate to and learn from.

3. What are your three biggest indulgences?

  • Regular massages at Burke Williams (I joined their amazing monthly membership program!)
  • Delicious sushi at Katsu-ya on Ventura (as often as possible)
  • Super lazy Sundays (at least once a month) where I never leave the house or get out of my PJ’s.

4. What is your biggest pet peeve?

  • People who talk in movie theaters (I am NOT in your living room!)
  • People who become famous for having no morals or underwear (bring back TALENT please!)
  • People who still think that women aren’t worth being paid equally (enough said!)

 5. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be and why?

My grandparents Michael and Mollie Marcus – they are my angels and the original Actionists® (people who take action in their everyday lives).

6. Why is having a powerful personal brand important to you?

It is the key that unlocks the opportunity. Having a powerful personal brand allows you to speak louder, reach more people, and create more influence without having to do all the hard every day legwork. It’s like the best advance team you can have for your message or mission.

7. What is your #1 marketing tip for fellow female entrepreneurs?

Push through the fear of networking. I am fairly extroverted and yet there are plenty of times I shudder at going to another dinner full of strangers or attending an event with few people I know but it is those times (when I never feel like going out) that always yield the best introductions, meetings, and opportunities. Every time I dread an event now – I think ‘Oh, I must be meant to meet someone great here because I don’t want to go!”
