We’ve had some pretty amazing women on The School of Greatness.
I’ve learned a lot from each of them.
In fact, I learn a lot from all the women around me (almost my whole team is women).
Today’s guest is no exception.
Male, female, old, young – we could all learn from this incredible businessperson.
Not only is she the youngest self-made female billionaire in America (wow, right??), she is also the mother of four young kids, the wife of another podcast guest, Jesse Itzler, and the founder and CEO of the massively popular women’s apparel brand SPANX.
In this episode, I got to sit with and learn from a legend among entrepreneurs: Sara Blakely.
During this interview, I kept finding out new things to admire Sara for.
She struggled a lot in school (me too!). She sold fax machines door to door FOR 7 YEARS before she had the idea for Spanx. She was rejected by every manufacturing company she took her idea to.
But she didn’t let any of that stop her.
Sara’s hustle and can-do attitude is just one thing I learned about her in this interview.
We dive into dealing with grief, how to scale companies the right way, what it’s like to be mentored by Richard Branson, and much more.
Welcome to an inspiring interview with a powerhouse in Episode 893.
