Saving Yourself, Abandoning “The Plan,” and Creating Your Own Beauty Standard ft. Bozoma Saint John, CMO of Netflix

“I couldn’t compare myself, so there was no way for me to diminish my own beauty against somebody else’s” - Bozoma Saint John 

When it comes to tapping into your most authentic self, Bozoma Saint John is unmatched. With an exceptionally fruitful career at companies like PepsiCo, Beats, Uber, and now Netflix, one might think that Saint John has always played by the corporate rulebook. That couldn’t be further from the truth. With an endless array of bold lipsticks, hairdos, and fits, she is living proof that a Black woman's right to self-expression and beauty doesn’t have to deter her right to success. In fact, this is what illuminates it. Tune in for an incredible conversation on Ghanian skincare, rejecting outdated beauty standards, learning when to let go of your job, and so much more. Enjoy!
