Great ideas come to many people in the shower, and that was absolutely true for the Founder & CEO of All Girl Shave Club, Jessica Principe.
All Girl Shave Club is a subscription service and online store started in 2016. In the first 12 months, the company had blockbuster growth (surpassing the six-figure mark in sales) and now serves customers in all 50 states and Canada.
What started out as a passion project to transform the chore of shaving into a treat, has become a female-focused shaving and grooming business. Ladies who join the club receive high quality, premium razors, coupled with unique, specialty shaving and body products in the mail every other month.
On today’s show, Jessica talks about her company’s rapid growth, secrets to cash flow, and her best tips for women entrepreneurs while juggling a family.

I recently became fast friends with my guest, Holly Dowling, and you’ll totally understand why when you listen in to today’s show. Holly has an infectious energy and insightful pearls of wisdom.

Not to mention, she has impacted the hearts and minds of millions with her “A Celebration of You” podcast (I was a guest a few months ago, so I hope you listen in!).
On today’s show, Holly talks about how she started her entrepreneurial journey by following a news article she saw in the paper when she was a stay-at-home mom, how she became an inspirational thought leader, and much more.
In the balance of being there with my children, I can tell you that I don’t know that they were getting the best of me if I wasn’t feeling the best of Holly.” – Holly Dowling

I’ve been secretly ‘stalking’ Janice Bryant Howroyd, Founder & CEO of The Act One Group, for nearly 30 years. Back in the early days of my first business, I wanted to make an extra $500 per month in order to ask my roommate to move out of the loft (true story), so I went on a search for success stories of entrepreneurial women. Janice Bryant Howroyd’s name kept coming up everywhere I looked. Janice took $900 from her mom and turned what is now known as The Act One Group into a billion-dollar company.
“JBH” as she likes to be called, is #39 on the Forbes list of “America’s Richest Self-Made Women,” and in 2014 she was recognized by Black Enterprise as the first black woman to own and operate a billion-dollar company.
Along with several other incredible accolades, JBH received a special invitation from President Barack Obama to be a member of the President’s Board of Advisors on Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Never compromise yourself personally for who you wish to be professionally.” – Janice Bryant Howroyd
I learned more from my mom and dad, growing up in their home, than I did from any institutions, and I’ve had the advantage of some really incredible opportunities academically.” – Janice Bryant Howroyd
When I started my business, I had no visions of where I wanted my business. I knew where I DIDN’T want to be.” – Janice Bryant Howroyd

According to pet care industry research in 2016, health care services for pets was nearly $16 billion dollars and growing.
After her dog had surgery, Dr. Amy Kramer, a physical therapist, saw that what she does with her patients every day would be a great rehab solution for her dog. The physical therapy worked and Amy couldn’t stop thinking about all the vets performing surgery across LA and how those dogs would need her physical therapy treatment. This lead Dr. Kramer to open the doors to Beach Animal Rehabilitation Center (BARC) which works to incorporate rehabilitation techniques so that pets can get well again.
On today’s show, we’ll talk about how Dr. Kramer got started in her now very successful business, her BEST tips for growth, how she deals with employees, her #1 productivity tip, what she thinks about the NBA finals, and more.
I really strive to make sure that my employees are happy and I ask all the time, ‘what can I do to make your job easier for you?’.” – Dr. Amy Kramer
If I don’t get good sleep, no matter what those things are that are going on in my head, I’m not going to do those things well if I’m not well rested.” – Dr. Amy Kramer

There’s a ‘theme’ happening right now among a lot of business owners I talk with and I’m wondering if you might have this ‘theme’ playing out in your business?
June marks the halfway point in the year, which means you’re either celebrating the success of reaching all your goals in the first 180 days or you’re running your fingers through your hair wondering what went wrong AND you may be wondering what you can do to make sure the next 180 days produce the results you want (& deserve).
You are not alone.
Many entrepreneurs find themselves in this position at this time of year but, the ones that work smarter know they need to reach out and get help – – bring on a thinking partner to help them clear the clutter and focus in on exactly what they need to do next in order to accomplish the goals they’ve set for themselves.
That’s why I’m opening up my calendar during July, while I’m in the beautiful, peaceful, mountains of Park City, Utah, to meet with a few women entrepreneurs who understand the importance of getting out of the day-to-day of running their business and retreating in a calm, serene environment that gives them the opportunity to think bigger, more expansive, more strategic about their next moves and desire a ‘thinking’ partner to help them along the way.
Grab your earbuds and get ready for one of the most transparent, refreshingly honest (and humorous) interviews you’ll ever listen to. Julie Deane, Founder & CEO of Cambridge Satchel, is funny, witty, clever and clearly quite brilliant.
This is Part One of Two episodes with this dynamo – truly an ALL ACCESS pass into the quick mind and interesting life of this amazing woman.
Julie shows up incredibly raw and transparent as she shares with us how she started her company on less than $1000 and since then, has created the Cambridge Satchel Company with 100 employees and sells her unique handbags in over 120 countries.
Starting as a simple business that would help to make enough money to send her children to private school to avoid her daughter being bullied, Cambridge Satchel Designs are now spotted in the front rows at international fashion weeks and runways. ‘A-list’ stars like Taylor Swift, Alexa Chung, and Lady Gaga love them. Because of her incredible success, Julie was the first woman to win Entrepreneur of the Year for all of Europe, and she has collected the Queen’s Award for Enterprise from Queen Elizabeth herself!
Today’s interview (Part 1) will be about the first seven years of founding and growing The Cambridge Satchel Company from scratch, and evolving it into a $65 million company! Stay tuned for next week’s episode to learn more about Julie’s growth, discoveries, and personal development as an entrepreneur.
