In this week’s episode, co-founders of BossBabe Natalie and Danielle are together in LA chatting with the queen of content, Allison Mcnamara. They dive right into her entrepreneurial journey from creating digital content for Who What Wear, Pop Sugar and Refinery 29 before creating content was even trending to being an influencer and owning and running her skincare line Mara. Allison is a multifaceted business woman, on one side she shares her secrets to creating content that people can relate to and on the other, she shares her skincare routine and the specific brands, products and supplements she uses and why.
They chat openly about how they all started their businesses without having entire plans laid out and were able to learn on the go. Allison shares the challenges she has faced being a female entrepreneur and the only full time person working on her business while managing a team of freelancers. They dive deep into the personality struggles of being ambitious women and hiring ambitious women. They talk about the struggle they’ve all faced with hiring employees that have start up mentalities and Natalie and Danielle share the data-driven BossBabe hacks for finding the exact perfect employee.

Vanessa is our Head of Community half the time, and a freelance copywriter the other. We commisioned her to write the copy on this very site, and you might have seen some of her quotes on our socials/emails in your inbox. With a PhD in Linguistics tucked tightly into the waistband of her yoga pants it's safe to say the girl's a word nerd, and in her work she combines art with smart Neurolinguistic Programming marketing methods to make sure shit SELLS. But as much as Vanessa loves brains, she loves beauty too (she used to be a makeup artist) and with wings so sharp they could cords with Archangel Michael, we'd advise fuckboys to steer clear of this spiritual soul sister! You can find Vanessa on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @lippiedlinguist or her blog lipstickandlinguistics.com where she talks less about business and more about boys (want to read about sex, love, dating and relationships on your lunch break? She's your go-to!).
