As the queen of pop once said herself: “Who runs the world? Girls!” Happy International Women’s Day 2018! And thanks Bey.
Over the last three years I’ve been privileged enough to work with and interview a tonne of talented women. Editors, writers, moms, travelers, entrepreneurs, chocolate tasters, flower artists. You name it, women are working it. Today in honour of International Women’s Day, I thought I’d share some of these How Did you get that F*#king Awesome Job interviews with some kick ass women.
From globe trotting yoga instructors to ethical shoe makers, I’ve been lucky to chat with and meet so many inspiring women throughout the last few years. Women like Jackie Kai Ellis, who left a high powered career to learn to bake, open her own bakery and Paris tour company (and write a memoir) or Emily Wight a mom and science communicator who went from blogger to cookbook author.
Thanks to all the ladies who help me out day to day, week by week, year by year, make this little corner of the internet the bright, positive and empowering place it is! I hope you enjoy learning about the secrets to what it takes to do f*#king awesome jobs by reading the posts below.
