WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Stoppppp in the name of badass women entrepreneurs, and push the pause button on whatever it was you were doing. Love, if you somehow stumbled upon this blog post or the description for this episode, it wasn’t coincidence. IT WAS FATE!! And while I believe every woman who dreams of starting a business or has already started one should listen to this conversation, we can at least start with you. You were made for big things. Just like Christina Stembel.

So, whether you have a college degree or not (she doesn’t) or whether you come from an entrepreneurial background or not (she didn’t) or whether everyone around you believes you’re going to do big things or not (she didn’t have this either), hear me now: you can build a multi-million dollar business and do incredible things. Because she did.

Mmkay. No, go hit play right this very minute and dive in, my love.

Want a sneak peek? We talk about:

  • How being picked on in high school shaped Christina into who she is today

  • Why Christina always knew she wanted Farmgirl Flowers to be a billion dollar business

  • Starting the company in her 100 square foot dining room in her one-bedroom apartment

  • How In and Out Burger was the inspiration behind Farmgirl Flowers

  • Her philosophy: build a company you would want to buy from, sell to, and work at

WHO IS CHRISTINA STEMBEL?

Christina always knew she wanted to start a business that would utilize her creativity, solve a real problem, and having the potential to scale big. She dreamed up the idea for Farmgirl Flowers in 2010, quit her job at Stanford University, and launched from her dining room in San Francisco, which housed the company (and her very understanding fiancé!) for 2 years. She’s built Farmgirl from less than $50K in self funding into an 75+ person company generating $15M+ in annual revenue. She’s not stopping there though – she plans to grow Farmgirl's annual revenue while creating a business you'd want to buy from, sell to, and work for -- because she believes it’s just the right thing to do.
