Sharing the BOSSY story with Guy Raz on How I Built Resilience

OOOKKKKK bosses --- 2020 has been a wild ride and it keeps getting more and more exciting over here with #TeamBossy!

First of all, do you subscribe to our newsletter?  If yes, THANK YOU!  If no, why not?  I definitely try to keep it non-spammy but I do share a lot about new product launches, sales, and the cool things happening in the company (and in my life as well!) If that kind of thing is interesting to you, you should go ahead and SUBSCRIBE now.

Last week, I was interviewed by THE Guy Raz of National Public Radio's How I Built This podcast fame and honestly, I am still not over it.  If you're an entrepreneur or you secretly harbor ideas of launching a business, Guy's podcast is one of the BEST sources of inspiration and I listen to it religiously!

Imagine my shock some months back when Guy follows me on Twitter (!!!!!!), DMs me (!!!!!!) and asks for a call????????????  I thought it was a hoax but I went ahead with it.  His voice is unmistakable so when he got on the phone, I almost passed out.  I mean, Bossy Cosmetics is a tiny baby business and is on Guy Raz's radar??????? The Lord works in beautiful ways!!!!  Honestly, that felt like a MAY-JAH milestone that I didn't even know I should have had!!  The talk went well and he asked a lot of questions and was very gracious about offering support in the future if I ever needed it.  I was floored and grateful.  I just spoke to Guy Raz!!  I only told my family about it because... you just need to focus on building the business after all.

Months went by and B-A-M, I get an email from his team and they'd like me to chat with Guy on the Resiliency series!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I think I might have cried, bosses.  I'm an avid fan of the show and it's been my DREAM to build a beautiful, bold, unique, and beloved consumer brand like the ones that I'd heard about on his show.  We still have a LONG way to go to be considered alongside iconic brands like many of his guests feels so GREAAATTTTTT!  I can't tell a lie.  Of course I said yes and this is replay of the live discussion below.

I just want to thank Y-O-U for reading this blog post and every single person who has ever bought our product or evangelized it.  I owe you so much of my joy and truly hope that I can continue to build a business that deserves and keeps your love and admiration.

Love always,

aisha xx

PS - I am also reading his book, which is a pretty excellent synthesis of all of the great stories from his podcast.  If you're into being inspired you should get it!
