EPISODE SNEAK PEEK:

“It should be simple. It should feel good. It should be fun. This is supposed to be easy. There is no other way. Every belief that does not support or boil down to that is an unplugged belief.”

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Of all the joyfully infectious, lip-sync loving, pink-haired wedding photographers, McKenzie Deakins is my favorite. And I have a sneaky suspicion she’s about to be yours, too! Which is why I’m SO incredibly excited to share her beautiful energy and heart and her story (including the untold parts) with you. She’s been making magic photographing weddings for over a decade now. So, she knows a thing or two and has been around the metaphorical block enough times to have seen a lot change. The real reason you’re going to love her, though? She has this beautiful way of making you feel totally seen and wildly excited all at the same time. She adds a dash of sugar and excitement to everything she does and yet, she keeps it incredibly real. So, grab a coke (McKenzie’s favorite) and get cozy.

Want a sneak peek? We talk about:

  • How she first got started photographing weddings 13 years ago

  • How her Instagram famous lip sync videos first started!!

  • The impact of watching those you love struggle with mental illness

  • Running a business through difficult life experiences and really tough days

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.
