Episode #041 - Marketing & Branding Expert Anna Wood


Every ambitious woman will be told that her dreams are too big, that she’s too bossy, that she should ‘act like a lady.’
Some women will listen.
The ones that don’t will change the world.
— Anna Wood

In today’s marketplace, I feel like we’re at a historical junction where women are establishing their well-deserved place in the boardroom and the business world. While this success is growing, women still face certain challenges in the workplace as this is a long standing problem that won't go away overnight. This week's guest knows this all too well.

Anna Wood is the Founder/CEO of Brains over Blonde, a feminist lifestyle platform for women who REFUSE to choose between femininity and success. Anna's a Google alumnus with a Stanford MBA, a serial entrepreneur, content creator, and a Feminist with a capital F.

As a sales / marketing lead in Silicon Valley, she worked with major brands such as Netflix, Expedia, Lowes, and Airbnb. Now, as a self-described "Female Empoweress," she helps other women carve out amazing careers and cultivate fearless lives.

In this episode, I'll talk with Anna about:

  •  The current state of feminism
  • What female empowerment really means
  • Why personal branding is so critical to all people, especially women
  • How men can help battle rampant discriminatory and harassment situations in the workplace.
