The legalization of marijuana for recreational use in California has created a bonanza of business opportunities and questions too. Many of us grew up hearing “just say no”, “don’t do drugs” and that marijuana was a gateway drug to harder drugs.
Judy Goss and I spoke to experts about the opportunities in the burgeoning marijuana economy, especially since CA just legalized pot for recreational use.

We had a lively conversation on What Women Want Talk Radio this week week with celebrity guests Melissa Carter and Bill Oberst Jr. Melissa, a famed Atlanta radio personality, discussed the glass ceiling of the radio world. Bill, dubbed indie horror’s sexiest man, discussed his vibrant acting career, including his upcoming stage offering, Ray Bradbury’s Pillar of Fire.
“Getting yourself out there”—it’s advice we hear all the time, but all too often it’s nebulous. What’s out “out there” and how do we do it in a way that’s productive? On this week’s episode of What Women Want Talk Radio we discussed the branding strategies of businesses large and small with experts Pamella Horton and Susan Gunelius. Our riveting discussion unpacked more than just brand strategy. We delved into to recent campaigns from companies like Campbell’s Soup and Pepsi as well as discussed influencer and content marketing—and so much more.
I was so inspired by last week’s broadcast of What Women Want Talk Radio. We had fashion moguls Megan Grassell and Marissa Lewis on our live broadcast, two young, enterprising ladies making waves in fashion.
Megan Grassell founded Yellowberry, a brassiere company for teens and tweens, after she could not find an age-appropriate bra for her little sister. What I found interesting about Megan’s story was her ability to push back when all department stores offered were push-up bras for her young sister. So often we go with the flow, or resign ourselves with “That’s the way things are.” Megan didn’t accept the status quo when it came to bras for teens and tweens and has made it to a successful business.
Marissa Lewis, founder of Miss Jumpin, came to Los Angeles with dreams of making it as an actress but rekindled her love of fashion and now runs successful and philanthropic enterprise in downtown Los Angeles. Marissa always loved jumpsuits and quite literally followed her dreams to where she is today. Hers is a story of listening to her deep self and knowing when to pivot and adapt. Marissa also has tremendous commitment to her downtown LA community and she exemplifies the moxie and pay-it-forward approach of the millennial businesswoman.

If you’re talking with Jennifer Longmore, it’s not.
Our recent What Women Want Talk Radio conversation with Jennifer Longmore opened with how Jennifer helped solve a murder case involving a female victim that had met her end in a wood chopper using her intuitive abilities. As a scream queen, I was fascinated. This sounded like something right out of a horror movie, except that the suffering of this woman was all too real.
Jennifer described her years in forensics in candid detail and how she used her intuitive abilities to solve heinous crimes. Today, she’s helping entrepreneurs–not to commit heinous crimes–but find alignment and authenticity, after she embraced a more life-affirming path for herself.
What I like about Jennifer is that she’s very real–humorous, not saccharine–not too stuck in the ethers as to be unrelatable. She embraces her “lady balls”. I embrace mine too.
