Join Hala for a live recorded episode of Young and Profiting podcast featuring Brit Morin, CEO and Founder of Brit + Co. Selfmade brings together the world's top female entrepreneurs to teach you how to create a new business or grow your existing one in a 10-week highly interactive virtual course.

 

***Meet the Moderators***

 

Brit Morin: Brit grew up loving to create but as she began to learn coding, she traded her love of art for a career in technology and marketing by working with big names like Apple and Google.

In 2011, Brit started the progressive, girl centric brand Brit & Co which provides similar projects that she fell in love with all those years ago in a host of categories including business and illustrating!

Brit has been featured as a contributor for the likes of CNN, the Today Show, and Katie Couric, just to name a few and her latest book Homemakers: A Domestic Handbook for the Digital Generation is a guide to creative living in and out of your home.

Brit is also the founder of Selfmade which is the title of this room. Selfmade is an education and community platform for female entrepreneurs (more about that later). And finally, as if this wasn't enough, Brit is the host of the Teach Me Something New podcast.

You’re allowed to break up with your dreams. Sometimes letting go is the only way we can grow and go on to be successful.

 

In today’s episode, we are talking with Trent Shelton, former NFL player, author, and international motivational speaker. Considered as one of the most groundbreaking motivational speakers of our era, Trent has touched millions with his words on self-worth, self-love, and recognizing your greatness.

 

After his short-lived and rocky stint in the NFL, Trent had the opportunity to speak at a church event back home in 2011, and his world changed forever. After a sensational performance, it was undeniable to the audience and Trent that he found his purpose through inspiring others to live better lives. He started creating YouTube videos with his words of wisdom and courage, which went viral. Before he knew it, Trent was speaking across the globe and packing arenas from New York, to London and Fiji, and reaching over 50 million people across his social channels.

 

In today’s episode, we discuss Trent’s time in the NFL, what it was like pivoting to something completely new and how he was mentally able to let go of a failed dream.  We also discuss how it can get lonely at the top, when to walk away from relationships and we go deep on some timely social justice issues of today.

Ever wonder how Netflix became the giant it is today?

 

In this episode, we are chatting with Marc Randolph, co-founder and first CEO of Netflix. Marc is a veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur, advisor, and investor. As founding CEO of Netflix, he laid much of the groundwork for a service that’s grown to 150 million subscribers and fundamentally altered how the world experiences media.

 

Marc’s career as an entrepreneur spans four decades. He’s founded or co-founded six other successful startups, mentored hundreds of early-stage entrepreneurs, and as an investor has helped seed dozens of successful tech ventures. Most recently, he co-founded analytics software company Looker Data Sciences, where he now serves as director. Outside of the tech and startup world, Marc sits on numerous other company boards and is an outdoors enthusiast.

 

In this episode, we discuss how Marc started his career, his wilderness experiences that shaped his leadership style, and the importance of experimentation. We’ll also talk about why there’s no such thing as a ‘perfect’ idea, how Netflix rose to dominance, and Marc’s perspective on the importance of culture.
