How a CEO Can Help Empower Women to Find Their Passion and Change Their Lives

In episode 562, I chat with Chris Cicchinelli, Pure Romance President and CEO and author of the new book, The Secret is You

In 2000, Chris Cicchinelli was twenty-five and at a crossroads in his career. He had just been let go from a promising position at a large retail franchise and was trying to navigate his next steps when his mother, Patty Brisben called. She was asking for her son's help in taking her women-only, in-home party, intimacy product company, what would eventually become Pure Romance, to the next level.

Listen as he chats about:

  • How he began to understand his mom's business
  • What it was like for a son working with his mom
  • How he took the business from $3 million to $350 million in revenue
  • The early stages of marketing
  • Why making sure his mom's voice was always the voice of the company was crucial to their success
  • How his trans daughter helped him realize the importance personally and professionally to make things more inclusive
  • His advice to standing out and building your business
