1129. The Story of glōci & How It’s Taught Me To Love Myself

When you sign up to be an entrepreneur, you sign up for the biggest personal development journey of your life! This might be the most meaningful and vulnerable episode of the podcast yet as I walk you through every detail that led to the launch of my new company, glōci. I share all of the challenges and triumphs I experienced along the way, from raising $2 million from 54 incredible female investors and navigating the company's pivot to how I landed on the name and came up with branding for the company. Believe me – every obstacle you face brings you one step closer to your dreams, and you have the power to achieve anything you set your mind to!
