Today we are joined by theSkimm co-founders, Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg. In 2012, friends Carly and Danielle created this subscription based newsletter full of easy to digest news stories. The Skimm makes it easier to live a smarter life by integrating in the routines of their target audience, female millennials. In our conversation today, the four of us talk about creating culture within a growing company, starting a business with your close friend and what challenges that brings, building a team, and much more.

We also talk about:

  • Leaving their jobs to start the Skimm
  • Deciding what to spend their money on
  • Staying aligned with one another + letting other people in
  • Self-care and setting boundaries
  • The upcoming book + tour for Carly and Danielle
