Off The Gram
Learning To Chill the Eff Out While Still Slaying Life with Melissa Ben-Ishay
These days, the four of us co-hosts find ourselves hopping on our #TeamOfftheGram group text to yell "SOS!!" with increasing frequency. We are living in such difficult times, and there should be no shame in waving the white flag and admitting overwhelm... so why is it so hard sometimes?
We're joined on today's show by Melissa Ben-Ishay, CEO of juggernaut sweets brand, Baked by Melissa cupcakes. After being fired from her advertising job back in '08 right in the midst of the recession, she decided to do something that made her feel happy rather than feeling sorry for herself. 10 years, 250 employees, 14+ retail locations, and a booming ecommerce business later, we know that Melissa - with her love of all things tie-dye & the Grateful Dead - is JUST the person we need to help us take pride in chilling the eff out in the pursuit of being our best selves!
