HerMoney Podcast: Color Commentary With Amy Errett (Episode 158)

Kelly Hultgren  |  April 24, 2019

“Life isn’t about winning. Life is about a journey. Life is about finding your happiness with whatever that genius is that you have."

So says Amy Errett, founder and CEO of Madison Reed, the beauty brand that’s challenging industry titans in the hair color space. She walks us through her career highlights and lowlights (ba-dum-bum!), including an unexpected firing that changed her entire perspective on work, family, happiness…and life. Plus, as a VC, she shares her take on the elements that create a successful business. In Mailbag, we discuss what you can do with your 401(k) if you’re leaving your job—and budgeting for charitable giving with donor advised funds. In Thrive, if we’ve learned anything in the past month, it’s that there’s a right way and a wrong way to get your kid into college. But just because you aren’t out there bribing coaches doesn’t mean you might not be making a few mistakes of your own. We discuss.
