Episode 172

Natalie Plain- Founder and CEO of Billion Dollar Brows…
A born entrepreneur and performer, Natalie Plain founded her own thriving candy distribution business in middle school, even developing a credit system to feed hungry classmates, all while performing weekends as a Disneyland parade dancer. After graduating from college, Natalie served as a White House Intern during the Clinton administration, working both as a ghostwriter for President Clinton and a press assistant to Hillary Clinton.

Upon returning to her native Southern California, Natalie pursued a career in television as Producer on the syndicated reality program, Real TV. Here, she met her future husband Bob who quickly noticed her entrepreneurial spirit and encouraged her to pursue her dream of starting a business.

Drawing upon her obsession with eyebrow grooming, Natalie conceived of Billion Dollar Brows (BDB) in 2004 after noticing the dearth of quality brow products on the market. BDB quickly grew to include gels, powders, pencils, and tools — all specially designed for brows.

In 2011, Natalie was issued a patent for her invention, the Brow Buddy Shaping Tool. The Brow Buddy quickly and easily demonstrates exactly where to start, arch, and end eyebrows based on each person’s unique facial symmetry, a measurement formerly achieved by guesswork.

Since then, BDB continues to lead the industry by offering the most innovative new brow cosmetics and tools for consumers and professionals alike, the brow business having literally grown into a BILLION dollar business worldwide since BDB’s inception.

Under Natalie’s guidance, the company grew from a tiny internet startup into a brand distributed throughout North America with unprecedented expansion into other regions the world over including but not limited to Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the United Kingdom, Russia, continental Europe, South Africa, and Southeast Asia.

In addition to her duties at BDB, Natalie also authored the definitive book on eyebrow beauty and style, The Plain Truth about Brows.

BDB was featured on Good Morning America, The Today Show, the Rachael Ray Show, The Doctors TV Show, and E! News. Natalie herself has appeared on Extra!, QVC, TVSN Australia, The Shopping Channel Canada, Martha Stewart Radio, NBC Morning News, and even The Adam Carolla Show where she supervised the first-ever waxing of the comedian’s unibrow.

Natalie lives in Coto de Caza, California with her husband and business partner Bob and their two children, Avery and Jack.I can’t wait to take part in the positive message you deliver to your listeners! Your message resonates with me because it is in line with how I run by business and my relationships.

I look forward to sharing the power of positivity and how it can lead to happy success!

I do want to point out that while a company dedicated to eyebrows sounds crazy, consumers spent over a BILLION dollars on brow products last year alone. Also, the phrase “how do I shape my brows” is Googled every .64 seconds–this is big business!I’d love to talk about our history (our entrepreneurial story) and our products–not simply our specific products, but the overriding message we stay focused on: we want every person to have access to the beauty products that make them feel their best.

Our mission is approachable, unintimidating beauty through amazing brows.

Brows frame the windows to your soul and there are a lot of deep, evolutionary reasons they are important.Billiondollarbrows.com

Two entrepreneurs/co-founders of the startup, Motivo, just reinvented the walker. A design that went unchanged for over 70 years has finally been updated. That’s right: Gone are the days of hunching over a flimsy aluminum-tubed walker with awkwardly-added sliced-up tennis balls for glide assistance. www.motivolife.com

Jennifer Harris and her design partner, Jeremy Knopow, have made a mobility breakthrough for an aging generation.

A simple point here: The Motivo business is, for all intents and purposes, still a startup. And its first new product – the Tour, will see a market opportunity where we expect to see the Boomer care-giver population pay closer attention to their parents as they age – and, they’ll be seeking new and innovative solutions for better quality of life.

In addition to designing this recently-patented and game-changing product, Jennifer and Jeremy are also running the business and bringing the very first Motivo Tour off the production line now in October..

-4 lessons learned along the way to help every CEO succeed.

Here are the key points:

1) Have fun. There’s always a fun way to do things and a serious way. Always choose the way that is more fun since you and everyone else will enjoy it more.

2) Try something new. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. They will certainly happen and you can delight in the breakthroughs that happen from them instead of fearing them.

3) Find win-win connections. Inspired from Steven Covey’s “7 Habits for Highly Effective Clowns,” (I think that was the title), always find a way that benefits everyone. If you listen enough, you will always be able to find that solution.

4) Do the little things. Write a handwritten note for 5 customers every day. GIve out a free sample when you usually don’t.

Smile when you answer the phones. Buy a pizza lunch for your employees from time to time.

We Chat About The Following.

-How did you go from being a circus clown to a school counselor to an entrepreneur?

-How did you create Bouncy Bands?

-What are Bouncy Bands?

-Who needs them?

-How do they help?

-How can teachers get them for free?

Episode 181

Composer, musician, and producer Megan Cavallari has a knack for creating music that industry legend Richard Kraft recently called “amazing and earworm candy.” From film and television soundtracks to stage musicals to having composed music for the Los Angeles Kings, the award-winning Philadelphia native has managed to land at the top of a her profession (despite the fact that less than 1% of all professional composers are females).

Now Cavallari has been tapped to write and produce the soundtrack, songs, and score for the upcoming animated feature “Jacob Marley” with animator and visual effects director Russ Francis. That goes along with her Jonathan McHugh-produced opera “The Righteous One: The Irena Sandler Story,” about a WWII hero who saved 2500 children in the Warsaw Ghetto, and her ongoing collaboration with Grammy-nominated pop producer Eric Robinson.

Perhaps Cavallari’s favorite gig is her passion and dedication to ice hockey (she regularly plays left wing in a men’s league). Cavallari is also a committed vegan. While raising an eleven year old daughter with juvenile arthritis, Cavallari has also launched the Talk Foundation Project, where she records the thoughts and observations of terminally ill children. With a tireless positivity grounded in her Jewish faith, her unique professional profile is matched only by her amazing work ethic and generous spirit.

Biography

So, you think you had a busy day? Consider what a typical working day might be like for composer Megan Cavallari. Start with the fact that Cavallari is one of only a very small handful of women who have established themselves as major creative artists in the professional music industry. But not even most of the men can point to a resume as diverse, eclectic, and impressive as this diminutive Jewish-Italian Philadelphia native: more than a 100 film scores as performer, arranger, conductor, or composer; 25 television shows; 16 stage musicals; and hundreds of songs, jingles, and assorted musical offerings including composing music for the L.A. Kings, have earned her respect, acclaim, multiple professional awards, and a reputation as someone who seemingly creates and produces music in every waking moment of a 37 hour day.

Then consider that while music is the dominant focus of Megan Cavallari’s professional life, it’s probably the easiest thing she does. For kicks, she might suit up and play left wing in a men’s hockey league, where she might find herself hurtling over the ice after being checked by a guy twice her weight. Or, she might be dealing with the very real challenges facing her eleven year-old daughter, surviving life with debilitating juvenile arthritis. She might be at temple, reaffirming a faith that is part and parcel of a family legacy with all the drama of an HBO miniseries. Or she might be talking to children in a hospital’s terminal ward, recording their thoughts in private and open conversations – just because she knows those moments of free thought and reflection are all the more valuable to those with little time left. In short, your busy day has nothing on Megan Cavallari’s.

Cavallari sees a strong personal and spiritual component to her projects, beginning with a lesson learned from one of her early mentors and champions. “Danny Elfman used to say about making music, ‘you put the antenna up and you hope God is listening.’” Cavallari had just completed her master’s degree at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts when she came to California with her award-winning musical project and caught the ear of Elfman. Her first high-profile gig was alongside Elfman as he composed and recorded the now-classic score from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” which lead to work on several subsequent Elfman scores. She likewise worked with legendary film scoring artists Jerry Goldsmith and Edward Shearmur, and artists such as Johnny Mathis. “Music takes people into a very different space and realm, and engaging with that means I’m always full of new ideas.” She also confesses to a history of being in the right place at the right time, and being around the right people. “I’m super lucky – and then I surround myself with great musicians, producers, directors, and music supervisors who keep asking me to do things!”

The gritty dedication to teamwork also explains her passion for ice hockey, reflected in the many pieces of memorabilia that populate her recording studio. “Hockey reminds me of life,” she explains. “You fall down hard, you get up. It’s poetry at eighty miles an hour, and it all comes down to getting that puck past that huge man into that tiny cage. There’s no star – you have to work as a team, you have to have those guys behind you, you have to have your line. I have my line in my work – my musicians, my agents – and my line has to be great for everything to work.”

That the work ethic is the product of strong, passionate parents shouldn’t be surprising, but the story of Megan Cavallari’s family offers additional perspective. Her Jewish mother’s family, emigrated from Russia and engaged as union activists, were targeted by the FBI and blacklisted during the McCarthy era (an uncle was called before congressional committees), which lead them to hide their Jewishness. Meanwhile, her Italian-born father was raised Catholic, but had rejected the church when he saw how they treated Italian Jews during World War II. “My father was more into Judaism than my mother,” Cavallari says. “Passover was his favorite holiday.” Learning prayers from her grandmother and great aunt, Megan wasn’t able to fully explore and embrace her traditions until she relocated to California after college. Despite the complex issues of religious identity, Cavallari’s parents excelled and exemplifying the better values of both faith and social responsibility – they were teachers who specialized in working with disadvantaged kids. “My parents had a loving relationship for 43 years, and I grew up in a home that was completely supportive,” she explains, citing a brother and sister who are both business owners “and fighters.”

That fight is needed on a daily basis when it comes to raising daughter Shoshana, who is in chronic pain from juvenile arthritis. “She’s suffering, but she has such a great attitude,” Cavallari observes, proud that her daughter will attend the prestigious Milken Community School next year. “She’s really my role model – kids tend to look at the bright side of things, so I learn a lot from them.” That’s one of the impulses that lead to Cavallari beginning the Talk Foundation Project. The idea is simple: with some simple digital recording technology, she visits with children in terminal health situations and simply allows them to talk. The recordings are private mementos of the subject’s life at that moment. “I say a prayer before I go into the room, I remind myself that this is for the good,” she says of the 20- to 30-minute conversations. “Some of these kids are happy, some are angry, some are going to rant or scream – but whatever they need to do, they do it.”

The constant demands for writing and producing music keep Cavallari focused, despite the many obstacles that she has faced. “Less than half-a-percent of composers are women,” she says. She recalls a particularly humiliating moment early in her career: an agent had submitted her as “M. Cavallari,” and she was hired based on her demo. But upon entering a production meeting, she was told that “casting was upstairs.” After explaining who she was, she was terminated because someone on the production insisted that only a man could compose the score for an action film. That’s lead to one of Cavallari’s bucket-list projects: “Someday, I want to do a ‘Mission: Impossible’ score with an all-female orchestra.” (Her other bucket-list gig would be working with fellow vegan Moby.)

Until then, Cavallari is hard at work on a new animated musical film project called “Jacob Marley” with director Russ Francis, with several other high-profile film gigs in development. She’s also begun a relationship with Grammy-nominated pop producer Eric Robinson, and is working with music supervisor/film producer Jonathon McHugh on a new opera about WWII hero Irena Sandler (who rescued 2500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto), which will debut with the Angel City Chorus. All projects to fill an ordinary day in the life of a not-so-ordinary composer.

CEO of CP Communications and author of From Unknown to Expert’, on as a guest to talk about her journey from unknown, to a leading expert in her field and international speaker.

Catriona has a compelling personal story: Stepping out of the corporate PR industry 15 years ago, Catriona started her business from scratch in the sunroom of her rented apartment using nothing but a borrowed laptop.

She believes that g rasping opportunities and using PR and social to establish thought leadership, and can explain why it is critical for women in business to utilise these tips to get ahead in their career and boost their businesses.

According to Catriona, the biggest challenge for new businesses is their lack of brand recall. No one, including media, knows who they are and what they offer so they need to start from scratch.

Catriona also explains the importance of finding the stories from within the business that resonate with people. This could be the personal journey of the founder, funding success or going even deeper and tapping into the needs and desires of their target audience.

Over the past 22 years Michelle has had to do a lot of learning while on the run but what was most important was being flexible and never saying “No” when a client asked for something that may not have been in my service offering at that time, however, it did complement the other services and I was then able to offer the new service to other clients.

Jeffrey R. Fidel, MD refuses to live his life medicated for Bipolar I disorder. In near complete solitude, he endured nearly a full year of intense mental anguish. Utilizing mainly the ancient teachings of Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching, he learned how to connect to a voice originating from his heart.

www.jeffreyfidelmd.com

The “voice within” teaches him that our true identity is “beyond thought” and that we and the universe are I(One)…

Dr. Fidel is now sharing these ancient teachings to help others discover their answer inside through his book I: One M.D.’s Inward Journey to Liberate Himself from Mental Suffering—And The Help It Offers for Those Diagnosed Bipolar, Mentally Ill or Depressed and through his website content and his speaking appearances.

Stephen Francis Jones (born 1961) is an American architect best known for his high-end restaurant designs and for being the owner of SFJones Architects, Inc.

Stephen Francis Jones is already known around the world as a master of architecture and design. Whether you are talking about Wolfgang Puck’s signature restaurant Spago in Beverly Hills, farm-to-table landmark MB Post in Manhattan Beach, the flagship location for La Brea Bakery, the Lucky Strike Bowling chain, Japan’s Mister Donut franchise, or the Java House chain in Africa, Jones’ designs are more than just places to eat – they are highly crafted social spaces where relationships are formed, collegial and familial bonds are reinforced, and communities are built.

And that’s the impetus behind Jones’ most recent efforts – including the unique Foundry & Lux complex at Britannia Cove at Oyster Point, located in South San Francisco. Approached by HCP Inc, one of the nation’s largest real estate firm specializing in healthcare and medical technology, Jones created Foundry & Lux as a central amenities facility to service the cutting-edge, high-tech firms that will populate the Britannia Cove campus.

Bringing to life a concept inspired by the word “Saturday,” Foundry & Lux is a unique social and commercial space that includes places to satisfy the mind, body, and soul. With places to eat, exercise, and relax, including spaces for yoga and a zen garden, Foundry & Lux is to the rest of the complex what Saturday is to the rest of the week.

Foundry & Lux is just one of Jones’ ongoing projects that reflects his evolving understanding of how a well-designed space and facility can do more than just offer commercial developers a place to set up shop. Inspired by new entrepreneurial colonies like Britannia Cove, where like-minded professionals find ways to share resources and work across disciplines, Jones is thrilled at the new challenges presented to his firm with every project. www.sfjones.com
