“…Because everybody was at home, there was a demand, there was a market created [for virtual chocolate tastings]…to do something different than their work…and it was a fun break. It was a fun journey…”

Pirie Jones Grossman



Pirie Jones Grossman had huge success in the TV entertainment industry; hosting, reporting, producing, acting and modeling on major shows and networks. On the outside her life looked fabulous. But on the inside, she was hiding a traumatic, grueling childhood. Today, she has transformed her own life and as a speaker, life coach and best-selling author, she’s helping others heal their own lives.

“…Because we learn survival skills…on how to hide the pain, how to hide trauma…there comes a point in your life that those survival skills don’t work for you anymore, where you have to do the inner work, where the pain is so much greater than not doing it, [the inner work].

Nikki Lanier



When I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Nikki Lanier, I was struck first by her impressive resume. This highly accomplished woman served as a senior vice president with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, 18 years as a Human Resources executive and employment attorney with many accomplishments along the way. But one central theme has always been there during her professional journey: advancing racial equality.

“…We know that America is getting Blacker and Browner, and that has implications around how the economy performs…because of racism, and because of lingering racial inequity, that presents a pretty significant conundrum for the society at large…”

She is a self-made style maven who’s built a multimillion dollar fashion and beauty empire. She is also on a mission to share her very personal breast cancer story.

“…the interesting thing is there was no family history…what I can tell you though, what actually happened in reality was the next year, every single female cousin that I have in our family on the mother’s side, all were diagnosed with breast cancer…the genetic tests that I took, they couldn’t even be a predictor for what actually happened.”

John Sorgini



In full transparency, I’m not a whiskey drinker, nor am I an expert on such spirits. But John Sorgini’s story from my one-time corporate lawyer to retired Air Force Colonel to spirit entrepreneur has me intrigued. He’s created many career chapters for himself, and they are deeply rooted in his passion and commitment to integrity, and the endless search for excellence.

“…You know, I thought about this for years. I visited other distilleries and I went to Bourbon school, tried to learn some things about it, and put all those pieces together…I knew I wanted  to make something, rather than a service…I looked into it for so long, my wife was, like, either do it or stop talking about it. And we just decided to do it…”

Lisa Sun



If you were told you lack gravitas, how would you respond? When Lisa Sun got that feedback in her first review as a business consultant in a global management consulting firm, it sent her on a two decades quest to uncover what it means to have gravitas, to be truly confident and know your own value. No longer a burned out consultant, Lisa is a noted fashion entrepreneur, founder of the lifestyle brand “Gravitas,” and now the author of “Gravitas: The Eight Strengths That Redefine Confidence.”

“…For me, I wanted to redefine confidence, not as a performative behavior but as a choice, a mindset…I wanted to double-click on that through quantitative research, and identify eight other types of confidence because we don’t all have to fit into that stereotype of swagger, and extraversion and charisma, to feel good about ourselves…”

Christina Pardy



Christina Pardy admits she did not grow up saying she wanted to be an entrepreneur, far from it. In fact, she went into sales for a tech company. But this millennial turned her side hustle into a million dollar bonafide business. Christina Pardy is the founder of STIK (“Shit that I Knit”), an apparel company that offers sustainably sourced, beautifully hand-knit products. She now has partnerships with many professional sports teams, and even designed and created apparel for the USA Beijing Olympics team.

“…My fear of regret is bigger than my fear of failure….And I really thought, What if I look back on this and a year or two years or 20 years from now and say ‘I really had something that I was passionate about, but I didn’t do it because I was too afraid of failing…’”

You can learn more about Christina, STIK and the way she has knit a next chapter in existence at shitthatiknit.com

Donna Martin



It may have taken Donna Martin 30 years to make the huge decision to leave her corporate job as a chemist and follow her passion, but she did it. In her words, she went from working the dream to living the dream as the owner of the Mill River Winery.

“Winemaking is a combination of wine, science, and love to make good wine…As you go through your life…your priorities kind of change and my career…the love of chemistry and the science that I had, [I] really took a step back…I had to look at my life balance…But in that time, I was able to navigate a way that I could pursue…a second career that included my passion…”

You can meet Donna and her dream, Mill River Winery, at millriverwines.com
