Friends, you are in for a real treat today – a total injection of pure passion and high energy.

I’ve been secretly ‘stalking’ Janice Bryant Howroyd, Founder & CEO of The Act One Group, for a long, long time. Back in the early days of my first business, my only goal was to make an extra $500 per month so I could ask my roommate to move out of the loft in my apartment (true story), so I went on a search for success stories of entrepreneurial women. Janice Bryant Howroyd’s name kept coming up everywhere I looked. Janice took $900 from her mom and turned what is now known as The Act One Group into a billion-dollar company.

“JBH” as she likes to be called, is #39 on the Forbes list of “America’s Richest Self-Made Women,” and in 2014 she was recognized by Black Enterprise as the first black woman to own and operate a billion-dollar company.

Along with scores of other incredible accolades, JBH received a special invitation from former President Barack Obama to be a member of the President’s Board of Advisors on Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

On today’s 'She's Got Moxie,', Janice shares:

-- What happened when she “looked after the office” for her brother-in-law while he was away
-- The creative strategy she used when she first started out to get clients (hear how operating her business in a rug shop was GENIUS)
-- The moment she recognized she was on to something (oh the joys of a phone and fax machine!)
-- How just one conversation with a mentor truly EXPANDED her vision and a life-long seed was planted (that ONE conversation lead to millions in growth over the years)
-- How being 1 of 11 children shaped her life and business
-- How advice from her father to “stick it out” in an all-white school changed the course of her path
-- Her BEST Productivity Tip
-- What she considers to be her SUPERPOWER
-- What it was like to receive an honored invitation from Barack Obama
-- The CLASSIC Mistake she sees Women Entrepreneurs making today

*and much, much more!

According to pet care industry research in 2016, health care services for pets was nearly $16 billion dollars and growing.

Dr. Amy Kramer decided to CASH in.

After her dog had surgery, Dr. Amy Kramer, a physical therapist, saw that what she does with her patients every day would be a great rehab solution for her dog. The physical therapy worked and Amy couldn’t stop thinking about all the vets performing surgery across LA and how those dogs need her physical therapy treatment. This lead Dr. Kramer to open the doors to Beach Animal Rehabilitation Center (BARC) which works to incorporate rehabilitation techniques so that pets can get well again.

On today’s 'She's Got Moxie,', Dr. Kramer shares:

She’s BACK. This week is Part 2 of my interview with the funny, witty and outrageously brilliant Julie Deane, Founder & CEO of Cambridge Satchel.

Julie goes even DEEPER this week and reveals how she managed being in “survival mode” trying to keep a company afloat, dissolving a 24-year marriage and staying present for her two teenage children.

Julie and I explore ‘feminine energy’ and how different “energies” play a role in a woman’s life – both at home and at work. We also look at what I call “the unconscious emotional triggers” and how this can be a major trap that women fall into.

On today’s 'She's Got Moxie,', Julie shares:

-- The one simple QUESTION that stumped her when she found herself in “survival mode”
-- WHY she finally decided to embrace her “inner goddess”
-- The moment she knew it was time to get “back to basics” and let go of her EGO (this is GENIUS & not to be missed if you’re serious about growing a company that has staying power)
-- The classic MISTAKE Julie sees women entrepreneurs making over & over again – BEST Learning moment for sure
-- The ONE thing you must have when you are PITCHING your idea to persuade others to pull out their checkbooks to fund your BIG idea
-- Julie’s adventures in online dating and how “Grace” was born (funny & hilarious, Julie describes in detail her encounter with a French/Latin dinner date)
-- And much, much more…

If you missed Part 1, you’ll want to go back and catch that episode – it’s truly some of the BEST entrepreneurial advice and wisdom you’ll ever listen to.
