    Freda Girl

    MEET OUR ROLE MODELS: WEEK 5

    How do you define perfection?

    DB: I’m not sure perfection exists! I think a perfect way to live life is to evolve + grow as a person. To be open to change. The ability to roll with the punches life throws at you is perfection.

    What are you most proud of?

    DB: My family + the deep love we all have for one another.

    What advice would you give to your younger self or a young girl today?

    DB: If it’s not going to matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes stressing over it.

    What do you love about yourself?

    DB: My sense of humor. I try (sometimes unsuccessfully) not to take myself too serious. Finding the humor in every situation.

     

    What are you most proud of?
    CM: Being a mother and an entrepreneur—I was determined to create something that I’m passionate about, but also wanted control over my schedule so my kids could be my priority. When I think about how I did career pivot from fashion editorial to cannabis skincare and launched my new company VERTLY with a newborn and 2 year old by my side, I realize how ballsy (and kind of crazy) that was!  I was totally out of my comfort zone and just trusting my gut to press forward, and I’m so happy (and proud) I did.

    What advice would you give to your younger self or a young girl today?
    CM: Oh, there is so much I wish I could tell myself!! But mostly, I would go back and say: Chill girl, things will sort themselves out. Try to enjoy the moment and stop planning what’s coming next……some of the best moments are the unexpected, so don’t try to control everything.

    What do you love about yourself?
    CM: I never would have realized this before starting my own company, but I love my grit.
