Martha Stewart: "Look for a void."
Our guest this week is the one and only Martha Stewart. Growing up, she had a knack for all things lifestyle: cooking, gardening and sewing. But after college, she decided to follow a different path. To Wall Street. Martha eventually took the business skills she learned there...and used them to build an empire of her own. There have been bumps along the way. But now, she’s the Chief Creative Officer of Sequential Brands Group, where she oversees everything from the Martha Stewart Living Magazine to her cooking show with Snoop Dogg. We had a lot of questions, too. On the couch, she talks to us about her very first side hustle, how she got her company started, and what she’s like as a manager.
Beth Comstock, first female Vice Chair of GE: “Tell me one thing I don’t want to hear.”
Samantha Barry, editor-in-chief of Glamour: “This isn’t baseball; I’m gonna cry.”
