Today, our guest is Nancy twine, Nancy started out on the trading floor of Goldman Sachs, but she always knew she wanted to be an entrepreneur. After her mom passed away unexpectedly in 2010, Nancy realized she needed to pursue her own business. She launched briogeo, a toxin free hair care range for natural hair, inspired by her grandmother's homemade hair care products. Nancy held down her day job for years while starting briogeo, taking calls on her lunch break, responding to emails after work, pitching investors and working weekends.

So quick questions, quick answers. Are you ready? Run. I'm a huge fan of your hair products. And I am curious every morning. What is the first one of your products that you use? Oh my goodness. Probably dry shampoo. We have a really great dry shampoo and our scalp revival line that I just like love. I didn't wash my hair every single day. So it definitely gets me in between washes. What do you think is the most underrated hair products out there that people should be using? I would say a scalp scrub. I feel like people ignore their scalp, but it's just as important as the skin on your face. Is that different than just doing a mask? No, it is like scalp maintenance is very hot right now. Do you maintain your skull? You do? Yes. I do too. I know you do because you have a hairline, but why have a scalp scrub? All right, we'll talk about this after. What was your first job? Oh my gosh, my first job actually was working and forever 21. I think it was like 14 years old in the mall. How would your direct report describe you with one word they would say? That's a really good question. Probably just very passionate. If you could travel anywhere right now like just get off your phone and get off of work like where would you go? I would go skiing and Park City, Utah. What is your favorite memory? Oh my gosh. I mean, I think the one that comes to mind is just making products with my mom at home. Last TV show you bench, Emily in Paris, second season, not second season year. Oh, you gotta do something. I'm like hoarding it. I'm like saving it for that moment where I just need to really binge all.

"I always say to myself be who you are. Exactly who you are, try not to let all of the outside noise change who I really am on the inside. I'm Carly Aiken and I'm Danielle weissberg. Welcome to 9 to 5 ish with the skin. We've run into so many questions over the years and had so many moments where we needed advice and we got it from women who'd been there. And that's what we're bringing you at this show. Each week we're helping you get what you want out of your career by talking to the smartest leaders we know. Because we know your work life is a lot more than 9 to 5. All right, let's get into it. Today, our guest is Melissa wood pepperberg. She is an entrepreneur and the founder of Melissa wood health, a fitness app, a lot of you are probably familiar with. On her platform, she streams her Pilates workouts to tens of thousands of paying subscribers and her celeb fans, not to mention, she's also got almost a million people following her on Instagram. Her platform has even become so successful. It's now a case study for entrepreneurship in the creator economy at Harvard Business school. Melissa, welcome to the show. Thank you. I'm so honored to be here with you, ladies. Thank you so much for having me. We are happy to have you before we get into the conversation. We like to warm up with a lightning round. Great. So quick questions, quick answers. Ready? Ready. Okay. Inbox zero or inbox a thousand. Inbox zero. What is the last show that you binge watched? Sex life, didn't you? Sure dad. Shorted. What is the first job on your resume? I don't know. Great. That's totally fine. Do you have any hobbies or skills that we don't know about? I think they're all out there. Oh, my hobbies and skills. So you're obviously in the fitness industry. I think if you as somebody very motivational, when I'm being lazy, I'm like, well, Melissa would wouldn't do that. So what is something that is lazy about you? I definitely let things pile up at home. Like, what's the last thing the piled up at home? It's not my email. I mean, I really try. Sometimes I have some, but definitely not a thousand. I feel like I'm one of those people who's so neat and then I just have trials of clothes and things to put away all the time and my husband would definitely agree with that one. Describe your average working day working 9 till. 9 to 9. What is the one exercise that you're like if I have to do this one more time? I'm going to cry. Burpee, you won't really find me doing burpees. Guess what, you won't find me doing them either. Who should not try to do your exercises? Oh, they're for everyone. And I really mean that. There's something for everyone. What is your morning routine? And do you have a mantra that you say to yourself? I do. I always say to myself, be who you are. Exactly who you are, try not to let all of the outside noise change who I really am on the inside. And that's something that's really stuck with me for a long time. Mostly when I started meditating, it's something that really came vividly clear for me to continue knowing that we each have our own beautiful gift and the more that we can hone in on that. And stop looking outside of ourselves is when magic really happens underway. My morning routine is where the transformation took place for me. And it literally starts the second that I wake up. I was someone in the past who dreaded getting out of bed in the morning. I had no motivation. I did not like what I did. I didn't love myself. So getting to a place now where I've really found this excitement for life and this joy that just like it makes me want to jump on a bed in the morning. And it's even this morning. I was up at 5 a.m. to meditate. And if you would have told the old Melissa that I'd be waking up looking forward to a 5 a.m. meditation, I've never would have believed you. So I start the day really taking something in that I am just extremely grateful for. And that moment before my feet even hit the floor. And I've avoided touching my phone for quite some time because, you know, I am someone that can tend to run more on the anxious side and I found that starting my day on that note just ran me. It was like I was just running on a hamster wheel for the entire day. So starting that way and then having a breather to myself before my kids wake up, it doesn't always happen. Sometimes they are my alarm clock. And it's really important to be super gentle with yourself. I was not for a really long time and it just leads to a lot of shame and a lot of guilt. And I love to go right to my meditation pillow. And I go and I sit where I look outside at the city because even living here for 15 years now. I still can't believe them. I got myself here on my own. So that is just another great way to shift my perspective in the morning. And then I go right into a meditation. I try not to have anything else before then, because then I find it's such an easy distraction and I'll find all of the other things that I had to do before I get it in and that my daughter wakes up and then it's like, you know, I don't have that moment for myself and I strive for 20 minutes. I am just coming off a weeklong advance to retreat where I was meditating for hours and hours a day, which I never thought I could do. What meditation pillow do you use? Because maybe not give me the motivation. I'm a big believer in creating a beautiful space for yourself that you look forward to. A lot of people will share with me that they can't meditate. And I'm like, where are you meditating? And they're like sitting up in bed. And then I fall asleep, and I'm like, it's really hard, but getting out of bed is the biggest challenge you're going to have. I mean, you'll definitely face other ones, but it's something that is really challenging to do. And you know, I strive and the word is strive for me. I'm not perfect. I do not have a perfect practice. I just really put a lot of effort towards taking good care of myself because I know what life feels like when I don't. So I strive for 20 minutes. So let's go back to before you were a health professional and a founder. You were a model. And you were in NYC pursuing an acting career and you're working in nightclubs. Yes. Take us back to that time in your life. How are you thinking about what you really wanted to do and how you wanted to build your career? I thought I wanted to work as a model and really embrace that career full time. And once I started working more, you know, I did a lot of showroom and fit modeling. I did some catalog and print, but I quickly discovered that it wasn't quite as glamorous as I had envisioned. And aside from that, for.

Now, when a situation may not be right for you and you need to move on, but also know when you may need to stay and dig in and get better at what you do. I'm curly Aiken and I'm Danielle weissberg. Welcome to 9 to 5 ish with the skin. We've run into so many questions over the years and had so many moments where we needed advice and we got it from women who'd been there. And that's what we're bringing you with this show. Each week we're helping you get what you want out of your career by talking to the smartest leaders we know. Because we know your work life is a lot more than 9 to 5. All right, let's get into it. Today our guest is Dana Kennedy. She's an award winning reporter who spent two decades with The New York Times and was one of the lead reporters on its 2001 series on race in America, which won a Pulitzer Prize. Dana also published a bestselling memoir following the tragic death of her fiance in combat in Iraq in 2006. The book is a letter to their son and it's about to become a movie. She's since gone on to two big first becoming the first person of color, the youngest ever, and first female administrator of the Pulitzer Prize. And last year, she became the first black person to head up a major U.S. publishing imprint as publisher and senior vice president at Simon and Schuster. Dana, welcome to the show. Thank you. Thanks for having me. So before we get into the conversation, we like to warm things up with a lightning round. So we can get to know you better. Quick questions, quick answers. Ready? First job on your resume. Oh my gosh, I was a waitress at a steakhouse in Kentucky. Do you have any secret hobbies or skills? I haven't had a lot of time to do it lately, but I love to make jewelry. Oh. Oh, what do you make? Mostly earrings out of beets, and it's been forever since I've had a chance to do it. Do you take a special order? I actually just make it for fun and for like Friends for the holidays or birthdays. But it's been so long since I've had a chance to do that. What best describes your work day working 9 till blank. Oh my gosh, last night it was 10 o'clock at night tonight it's gonna be probably later. I started this morning in a sales marketing meeting. I had to approve book covers. I did a planning meeting for the movie premiere. I had a staff meeting. I am doing this interview, and then after this, I have another meeting with Sony about the movie, and I have to get in my car, drive to Brooklyn and go to a dress fitting for the premiere and come back and work on a sales presentation I have to give tomorrow at 9 a.m.. All right, busy time for you. What's something we can't Google about you? That I am a horrible dancer, but you couldn't tell me that because I swear when I'm dancing, I think I'm like J lo or someone until I see a video and then mortified. Either a video or my son's face. Nobody should ever see a video of themselves dancing in this new origin. I mean, I will say I feel the same way. And I think that's how you should feel about yourself when you're dancing. Yeah, I'm really better dancing sitting down. When I get up, it just somehow does not come together. I agree. I really feel the beat in my chair. And then it doesn't quite match. You can totally move in your chair. But then you get up and they're like, things just go different directions. Not pretty. Okay, I want to know given your very intellectual person, your various esteemed person and publishing world, you get to read either a trashy romance novel or a trashy thriller, which one do you choose? Gosh, Tracy, romance, any day of the week. I'm a huge sucker for a romance. Everyone is different. It's why I have to ask the question. Look, I can't even remember the last time I read a romance novel. But that hypothetical would be fun to be on a beach somewhere reading that, but lately I've been reading serious things, you know, anything by Bob Woodward, I devour. And because I sign authors now, I'm obsessed with Laura Coates in a book that she's about to write. She's the CNN legal analyst. I, you know, as you know, wrote my own book, but I love championing the books of other people. What's something you do that sparks joy? Look at my son when he walks in the door wakes up in the morning that's all I need in life. I don't need anything else. I live and breathe for him. That's a beautiful answer. Thank you. That is a beautiful answer. How does taking time to slow down, fuel you to move forward? I don't have a luxury right now slowing down. I think it's important to have balance and I've tried to do that in my life right now. I'm trying to take advantage of this huge opportunity to tell the world about patriotism and military sacrifice and my sweet, sweet Charles, while also having the privilege of running the Simon and Schuster imprint. And so I feel like I need sleep there will be time for that later. What is the last text message you sent? To my son, just about ten minutes ago, saying be safe on the way home from basketball practice. All right, I want to get into your career. I'm going to take it all the way back. How did you get started in journalism? I started writing when I was about 12 years old, short stories and poems and so forth. I grew up in a small town in Kentucky. And I knew I wanted to be a writer. I thought I would be writing novels in New York. In fact, in my high school memory book, it says I'll be a writer in New York in ten years. And as it came time to go to college, I realized there was more job security in journalism. So I combined my two loves writing and asking my favorite question why. I'm just very curious about everything in the world and I love people. And so I combine those things and became a journalist and I knew that the way to compete coming out of school I would tell any young person this now is internships internships internships. And so I went to the university of Kentucky, majored in journalism, and by the time I left journalism school, I had done 5 internships. The first two, I literally called up the papers and said, can I work for you for free? Dan, I'm an interrupt you. Because this is a career podcast and we talk a lot about people beginning stories and a lot of people do cold calling. But I think when people listen to that, they're literally like, what do you say? So I want to do a little bit of role play here. I'm gonna pretend I'm.

"I was going to have to. I'm Carly Zac and I'm Danielle weissberg. Welcome to 9 to 5 ish with the skin. We've run into so many questions over the years and had so many moments where we needed advice and we got it from women who'd been there. And that's what we're bringing you at this show. Each week we're helping you get what you want out of your career by talking to the smartest leaders we know. Because we know your work life is a lot more than 9 to 5. All right, let's get into it. Today, our guest is Brooke Shields. She has been a household name almost since birth from doing her first commercial at 11 months old to a Calvin Klein genes campaign at 14. She achieved notoriety through blockbuster movies in the 1980s, like the Blue Lagoon and endless love. Since then, Brooks becoming a Broadway actress starred in sitcoms and TV dramas, written two books and raised two daughters. And now, she is starring in and producing the upcoming Netflix Christmas movie a castle for Christmas. Brooke, we are so excited to have you. Welcome. Oh, thank you. Thank you for welcoming me. So before we get into the conversation, we like to warm up. We're going to do a lightning round. Quick questions, quick answers. Let's do it. What is a secret hobby or skill that you have? My secret hobby is needlepoint. Oh, that's a really good one. I am needle pointing a backgammon board. Like I have to be on the set doing something like some kind of craft or something. Okay. What is the last show that you binge watched? Oh, I haven't seen it, but I heard I would really like it. Oh, please, Rhonda walk. Okay, my next question, you have starred in many things that are beloved shows and movies of mine. But one of my most favorite roles you've done is when you were on Broadway and you played Rizzo in Greece. Oh my goodness. How old were you? You must have been a baby. I was a child, but I remember vividly. What is your favorite line or song from Greece? There are worse things I could do. Fair. When was the last time you negotiated for yourself? About 20 minutes ago. Where did you negotiate? I negotiated someone's fee for a perspective job. How does taking time to slow down fuel you to move forward? I never slowed down in my life till more recently in the past few years. And the fuel that I get from just doing something healing for myself sometimes that can just be hanging out with a friend or watching movies or doing something where there's where the regular noise is stopped. I find that I reemerge from that even stronger and more powerful. I just it's almost like that time the energy starts and it starts building up. Okay, we're going to move into the meat of our show. You started working when you were you couldn't even walk. You were less than a year old. And then you became famous as a teenager. You've talked a lot publicly about what your family dynamic was and what a unique childhood you had. But what was your support system? How did you basically stay normal? There's a few elements that I think my mother set in motion. She never moved us out of the east coast. We never went and moved to Hollywood and pursued all of that, which is rushing to high school and basically only being educated onset. And I think that even just that element for sure gave me a perspective and a more grounded way of being in the world. And when that's all you know, regular great schools, regular high schools. I think you really do have an understanding that the world you may inhabit at certain times is not real. It's just not your real world. It's kind of crazy. It is something that you can go in and out of to a certain extent. And the other piece is my mom always made sure I had someone my own age around me. So I always had a partner in crime. You know, I never felt like I was the only kid in a sea of adults. And my parents never spoke ill of the other. I mean, they got divorced when I was 5 months old. My father's family is so the opposite of any way that I grew up with my mother or my working life. And I was talking about this today, I've got this movie coming out and it's coming out the day after Thanksgiving. And everybody in my life outside of my family, they're all going to watch it. And I know for a fact that I'm going to get to my family in Florida. And it's not even going to be mentioned. And it's funny because my feelings aren't hurt or anything, but that's how I grew up. My youngest sister grew up with not an inkling of what I did. And it wasn't until she got much older and friends of hers would say things like that's your sister. And it's so interesting that sort of power of that kind of compartmentalizing. And sometimes it's not good, but it really served me. You know, I'm going to go down to be like, no one's going to watch my movie, but it's okay. Well now because they're going to listen to this podcast. No, but it's like, you know, and I never hurt my feelings that actually just helped me understand that, you know, it's not everything. It's not the only thing. And if I sat and said my sister down and said, look, this is really important to me. Please watch it. They would watch it. You know, it's interesting. On this show, Danielle and I were cofounders and we're friends and we talk about how unique it is that ten years in, we're sorely friends and cofounders of a business. We've had people on here that also are cofounders and friends or work with family or work with spouses and just kind of the unique dynamic of bringing work home, home to work into your personal life. You and your mom in particular were infamously just this tight type duo for so much of your career where she was your manager. She was with you for all of your early success. I would love to understand how you dealt with that, both the good part and maybe the parts that you're like, I wouldn't repeat. Your advice to those who think about working with family or working with those kind of closer to them. You know, I think it's always brought no matter how you look at it and boundaries are the most important thing. On the one hand, I think family you can trust more than anybody. Friends, family. On the other hand, if money is involved, that's when it gets tricky. I think full communication has to happen. I was very enmeshed with my mom. I knew nothing other than being in this industry that I was in kind of it happened to both of us and not knowing any other way in hindsight. I think it would have been healthier to have a bit more of a delineation between my professional life and my mom, however the way she protected me in an industry that basically devours its young. You know, I never had a me too moment when all the other young people were, you know, I was she was so avaricious sleep.

Hey everyone, it's Danielle. Today, my guest is Shawna Thomas. When Shauna was just 13, she won a college scholarship for promising kids in Houston. From there, she started her career in journalism, working her way from intern to senior producer at NBC. She's won multiple awards throughout her career Emmys, Howard scripts, a Gracie and a Peabody. Now she's the executive producer for CVS mornings, which millions of people watch every day. Shauna, welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. And we worked together at NBC for a brief period of time. I was going to start off by saying that my intro would not be complete without saying that when I first started at NBC News, Shauna was working there. We were in the D.C. bureau and I was in total awe of just watching her work with such confidence. And I still remember one of my biggest fails that I always tell people to do is don't be afraid to email someone. Don't be afraid to ask someone for coffee. Take them out, like, worse thing they can do is say no. And I must have written ten draft emails to send to you. That was one of the times where I was too shy to send an email. So I'm very excited to have you on today. Well, I mean, with what you've created with the skim, there was a period of time where I was like, I really should have gotten a know her. We like to start things off with a lightning round. So quick questions, quick answers. You ready? Sure. First job on your resume. NBC News is the first thing and I do still list that I was in news.

Because we know your work life is a lot more than 9 to 5. All right, let's get into it. Today, our guest is Emily ratajkowski. She's a model who's been on the cover of Sports Illustrated and walked the runways in Paris and Milan. She's also acted and blockbuster hits, including gone girl. Recently, she's launched her own swimsuit line, which won her awards as a fashion designer and Emily was named on the Forbes 30 under 30 list. And last fall, she published an essay that went viral in the cut, which zoomed in on objectification and abuse of power. She's now about to release her book. My body, Emily, welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. We are going to jump in the way we like to jump at all conversations with a warmup and a quick lightning round to get to know you better. Quick answers, are you ready? Yes, let's do it. Okay, first job on your resume. Model. What is your most recent job? Writer. Any secret hobbies or skills? I'm not terrible at interior design. I'm sitting in my living room and I'm like, you know what? It looks good. It looks terrible. I'm really good at it. So I love this is totally more of a hobby floral arrangement. I also got really into that during quarantine. Really? What's the last show you binge watch? Oh God. I guess white lotus I binge watch. That's just the one that's coming to mind, but I feel like there was probably another one that was more terrible. Finish the sentence. What best describes your work day, working 9 till blank, working 9 till 9. I feel like my work kind of never stops, which is good because it's like can be on the go. So it means, you know, I'm not sitting at a desk and clocking in and out. But also it kind of means that finding true time where I'm not working is very rare. When was the last time you negotiated for yourself? I'm negotiating an hour ago. What were you negotiating? Some outlet leaked something that they weren't supposed to, and I'm trying to decide if I'm going to still talk to them or what I'm going to try to negotiate out of their mistake. To be clear, it was not the scam. It was not the skin. Thank you. No. On a bad day, what is your go to snack? What's the food that will make you happy? I love a massaman curry. When did you feel like you made it? I don't think I have ever felt that way maybe. For better and for worse. And probably our most important question of the show, what is your go to karaoke song? Okay, so it used to be doo wop that thing or in film. Which is so hard. Yeah, that's a challenge. Also the wrap. I appreciated that you put it in your book as something that was ambitious. It was a hard song. Yeah. Yeah, it's very ambitious. Okay, so let's talk about your new book, my body. It's a collection of self reflective essays. What made you want to talk about the experiences that you go into the book at this moment in your life and your career, why now? So it started out as a real personal project for me more than anything. I just, you know, was processing a lot of ideas and thoughts I had less around personal experience, but more about my political beliefs and things I believed in general about our culture and our world, or my experience as a woman. And how it had led me to these kind of systems of belief. And through that I ended up revisiting a lot of specific experiences. But I certainly I didn't sit down at any point but think I'm going to write about this thing that happened or whatever. And actually, a lot of the things that are in the book were things that I had never talked about before, or moments that I had forgotten until I was writing and thinking about these ideas and really asking myself, why do you feel that way? Or what are the experiences that have led you to think in the ways that I do? Why did you choose essays? I love essays. I've always liked reading them. I feel like in our day and age, short attention span wise, it's a really nice way to pick something up and put it down and feel like there's an idea. I also just like the liberty that you can have with an essay where you can really make big kind of stylistic choices and we four different narratives together or just kind of try something totally out there. And I don't really like reading memoirs. It's interesting because when I was reading it, you actually hit on what I didn't really put together, but that I'm used to reading memoirs or novels that are going on. And when I was reading the essays, I was like, oh, like, bam, bam, bam, and it was feeding into what I do all day, which is look at things in vignettes and pieces and moments in time. But I think it does speak to the moment that you're writing all of this in and piecing it together. Yeah, I'm happy to hear that because I'm not a musician, but I love a really good album where you're like, and then that song comes on and it's just like, what you need after the last one. So I think of books that way. And you know, it's harder to do that with a memoir. I think just nonfiction in general can be kind of constrictive.

"If you are burned out and feeling burned out, then we should respect that. We have to appreciate burnout and the process of building ourselves back up from burnout. When you feel burnt out and when you feel depleted and you don't have anything else left to give, what the world tells us and not even just the world, what we tell each other is that we're not useful. But this work is not the only thing that's important. You are important as an individual. I'm curly Aiken, and I'm Danielle weissberg. Welcome to 9 to 5 ish with the skin.

Hey everyone, it is Carly. Today my guest is Tirana Burke. She was Time Magazine's person of the year in 2017, but she has been working at the intersection of racial justice and sexual assault for decades. Tirana has worked as an organizer since she was a teenager growing up in The Bronx. She is dedicated her life to providing resources and opportunities for women and girls to heal from their experiences. She first started using the phrase me too in the early 2000s. But when it unexpectedly went viral in 2017, she had to figure out how to make sure survivors knew the phrase was only the tip of the iceberg when it came to healing from sexual assault. Toronto, welcome to the show. Thank you. Thank you for having me. We have been really looking forward to this..
