Wow, I just discovered one of my new favorite podcasts! It’s like “How I Built This” - but focused on women who have built a successful second career in their “second life”. I loved this episode for several reasons: 1. I love the supergoop! brand. Best sunscreen ever. Seriously. Their “unscreen” product has won multiple awards and rightly so. 2.Founder Holly’s story is entertaining and inspiring. Holly was a teacher and a freelance harpist before she was diagnosed with skin cancer. 3. I’m so moved by Holly’s mission of educating children on the importance of sunscreen. I don’t think my parents ever made me wear sunscreen as a child (eek) and she’s right that the routine starts in school. 4. Respectable how she hustled for years before the opportunity with Sephora came up and how she wanted to launch slow, not fast.
