As much as I love being creative, I am equally passionate about business. I have always had a career on the side of my acting. I didn’t want to bartend, I wanted a business card. One of my first jobs in Hollywood was as an editor, logging footage from red carpet events. I was quickly promoted to producer doing red carpet interviews at blow out award shows and premieres. As a young actor, this was a dream job. I got to talk to my idols. My favorite interview was Kevin Kline at the De-Lovely premiere. Most memorable was Stevie Wonder at a benefit for Muhammed Ali. Coolest girl, hands down was Charlize Theron at the Aeon Flux premiere. Most surprising moment was when Will Ferrell put his lollipop in my mouth at the Elf Premiere.
That first job gave me the opportunity to interview every icon in the business from Muhammed Ali to Steven Spielberg to Meryl Streep to Clint Eastwood.
Learning how these events worked early on helped shape my career as a young actor. As an entrepreneur, it allowed me the chance to help a startup grow into a profitable business that had top competitors courting me to come do the same for them.
Life on pHERpose
stand up for your sisters
I have chosen to dedicate a large part of my life to supporting other women. My sister and I started a skincare business in 2014 that grew very quickly. We hit the top 1% of the company and became car achievers in our first year and I went on to hit the top title before year three. This achievement earned me stage recognition at our national convention, which I did with a newborn strapped to my chest in front of 15,000 of my peers. A message I thought was very important for women to see; a mother and a powerful business woman. Alongside some of our top leaders, Lacy and I have built a community of women called Life on pHERpose. It’s a sisterhood that truly shows up for each other. Gone are the days of tearing each other down. It’s time to lift up the women in our lives — so high they can touch the stars. There’s room for us all up there. Collaboration over competition. Her rise does not equal your fall. Find the friends that root for you to win. Let’s lift the circle!
I coach, mentor and inspire women to do the things that scare them. I’m very passionate about mentoring women in business because I think the world needs more female CEO’s.
Stepping into motherhood has also given me a deeper connection to women around the globe as we navigate all that comes with that tricky little title. It’s the job that gives me the hardest challenges yet the most fulfillment. It is my ultimate calling and I am here to break down any wall that makes us feel insecure about our choices because social media makes us feel like we aren’t doing enough. You are enough and your choices are exactly what that baby needs. #momlife
