The New Must-See Show for Any Entrepreneur

March 29, 2016 Career

I don’t know about you, but whenever I’ve heard the word investor, I’ve thought of someone intimidating and wearing a boring suit.

That perception was completely turned on its head when I met my friend Lauren Maillan, who was a panelist at one of my events. She’s not only completely warm, kind, and ridiculously stunning, but she happens be an uber successful investor that started her own winery at the age of 19 (yes, really!) and has been a badass entrepreneur ever since.

I’m so impressed with what she’s been able to create, so I was excited to celebrate one of her latest ventures–being one of the stars of a new show, Quit Your Day Job premiering on Oxygen this month (March 30th at 10/9 central). This amazing new series pairs angel investors with up and coming entrepreneurs to develop the next big thing.

While Lauren is one of a kind, her three co-stars Ido Leffler, Randi Zuckerberg, and Sarah Prevette are just as powerful, heart-centered, and brilliant. When I met with all of them at the premiere, I kept thinking to myself, This is what I’ve always wanted entrepreneurship to be. They have the ability to truly make a difference in someone’s life, but they don’t take that for granted and are completely humble about that. Not only that, but when they decide to invest in someone they really want them to win. Which is exciting to me and gives me hope.

I was fortunate to watch quite a few clips of the pilot episode, and I have to tell you that I absolutely will tune in on the 30th and set my DVR for all future episodes. It’s funny, it’s honest, and it brings a real sense of humanity to a process that can seem harsh at times.

So, trust me when I say, you won’t want to miss the first episode Wednesday, March 30th at 10/9 central time.
