For those of you considering an entrepreneurial path, it’s so important to ask yourself “IS THIS A GOOD RISK?”. Swipe to see the checklist that @maybank and I put together in our book “By Invitation Only: How We Built Gilt and Changed the Way Millions Shop.”

This weekend, I started re-reading “By Invitation Only: How We Built Gilt and Changed the Way Millions Shop”, the book I wrote together with my eternal wingwoman @gilt Co-Founder, @maybank. The book was published in 2012 ( @penguinbooks @portfolio_books). 📖 Within its first week it became a @nytimes bestseller. Our book enabled us to share our entrepreneurial journey which focuses on relationships and execution at the center of a fast-growing influential NYC start-up, in the days before we knew of other female founder duos. Ours is a story about friendship.👭 I thought it would be fun for me to share through my IG feed some relevant tips from the book with all of you as I go back down @gilt memory lane: “In recounting our backgrounds, key decisions, and hard-won wisdom in this book, we hope to inform, inspire, and help pave the way for others who want to start something new, advance in a career, or— especially— build a business that grows to employ dozens or even hundreds, modernize industries, and change people’s lives.” Even though we wrote this book 7 years ago, most of the learnings we share in it are still valid today. Hopefully @maybank and I can continue to inspire future entrepreneurs to take calculated risks, to innovate and to disrupt.🚀

There are few things more professionally rewarding than launching a new business. 🚀 Over the past year, I have watched “team Regi” grow and develop from an idea to a fleshed-out concept and now to a live business in two cities. Here I am with some members of our all-star #tech team. Discover more of my favorite @Regi-related features in my IGS stories. #TryRegi

I admire and respect @theannakaiser Founder and Creator of @theaktstudios (try this dance cardio workout if you haven’t!) 💃🏼. I couldn’t agree more with her quote from her feature in @spotlyte. Your health is indeed an investment, not an expense (I also feel the same way about skincare!). #awwquoteoftheweek #investinyourhealth #annakaiser

I think the highlight of #takeyourkidtoworkday was a thorough visit with #beautyeditor @sophieawirt to the @spotlyte beauty closet and getting to take home a @maccosmetics clear lipgloss💄 ... #clearlipgloss #discoveringbeauty #beauty #skincare

One of my favorite natural men's skincare brands, @oarsandalps, just launched at select @target stores and target.com! I’m so proud of these female founders @Mia.saini and @lisowski who, together with their team, have been working on this launch for almost a year. Check this brand out. Their products smell amazing, especially the Fresh Ocean Splash natural deodorant.

I had a blast onstage at Startup Grind with Chris Stutzman of @bcgdv to talk about digital disruption within corporates. It’s refreshing to see big companies seeking out entrepreneurs to innovate from within.

An unforgettable, magical moment at last night’s GRAMMYS! I love seeing women support women. 👊🏻These trailblazers are role models and pioneers. “Music shows us that all of it matters -- every story within every voice, every note within every song” said @michelleobama. #grammys #thegrammys #girlpower #trailblazers #pioneers #equality

I learned today in an Insights training class that according to Gallup, there are 4 basic needs that FOLLOWERS want from LEADERS: Trust, Compassion, Hope & Security... It seems pretty simple, although we all know that leadership has many complexities. Have you ever thought about why you follow someone professionally? And more importantly, why would someone follow YOU? “A leader charging forward without followers is just out for a walk.” #leadership #gallup #insightstraining

“When you educate, you empower, and when you empower, you inspire.” — @tanyazuckerbrot. 🙌 Loving this quote from the interview @spotlyte did with @tanyazuckerbrot, my #WCW this week. The NYC-based dietitian and best-selling author of the @f_factor has so much wellness and skincare advice to share — read the interview on @spotlyte to see for yourself!

Imagine my surprise 🤔 when I discovered that the baby “boy” guinea pig named “Cutie” that we bought from @Petco in November had a BABY guinea pig today! 😫 So, Cutie (the boy guinea pig) is really Cutie (the girl guinea pig) and the little baby is now Cutie Jr... And if Cutie Jr is a boy then we may have a guinea pig breeding situation... #cantmakethisup 🐷

What an adrenaline rush to get up on stage with my amazing team in front of 1400+ people at the 2019 National Sales Meeting for Allergan’s Medical Aesthetics business!

I’m proud to be a MILF. What?! @heymamaco launched the MILF(und) campaign to address the challenges women, particularly mothers, face during the fundraising process. Through the 3 ventures I co-founded, I’ve been involved in the fundraising of over $300M in capital. I have also been an Advisory Board member to over 25 startups over the past 10 years (the majority founded by women). In sharing stories like mine, the MILF(und) campaign will shift perceptions around motherhood and entrepreneurship and spread actionable tips to help the next wave of mama founders navigate the fundraising process successfully, just as HEYMAMA founders @katyaslife and @amrikibbler jump into this process for the first time themselves. After four years of bootstrapping HEYMAMA into the go-to resource for mamas in business, they’re kicking off a crowdfunding campaign featuring rewards like the MILF(und) tee I’m wearing here, newsletter shoutouts, mentoring sessions from mama bosses, and more. Head over to the @heymamaco feed to learn more + find out how you can support! #proudtobeaMILF
