JEN MENCHACA is the founder and creative director of Nation Ltd, a premier women's contemporary collection found in department stores and high-end boutiques. Jen founded the company in 2005 and her line has evolved from one simple V-necked T-shirt to a premiere apparel business found in boutiques around the world. Her apparel is distinguished by its ultra-soft fabric, vintage details, and elegant trendsetter style worn by chic women and celebrities. 

 

Listen Jen talk about: 

 

  • How she has never listened to a podcast before and this interview is her very first and she finds it a “very cool experience.”
  • She had first worked at the front desk of Extra TV. She answered phone calls from the entertainment industry.  Her contacts list grew because of her job there as a receptionist. 
  • As a child, her father who worked at NASA encouraged her to become an engineer and did his best to lure her into the same industry. During summers, she was offered a job as a cashier at the official NASA gift shop.
  • She refused to work at NASA primarily because she didn’t want to wear a space suit. 
  • She studied at the University of Texas and earned a B.S. in Advertising. 
  • She then moved to New York City where she ended up working as a professional cocktail waitress, eventually working her way up to a weekend bartender position. 
  • She moved to Hollywood after 5 years in NY and got a first job with David E. Kelly Productions on the hit TV series Ally McBeal.  
  • At the same time she had been eyeing her dad’s white V-necks. She created one perfect vintage white v-neck for women and they wore it. 
  • She held 2 jobs as long as she could (almost 9 years)  while setting up her Nation LTD firm.  
  • She also taught at South Central 
  • Eventually, Nation Ltd became so big that she had to leave the showbiz industry.
  • Her fabrics need enzyme washing.(Enzyme wash uses enzymes produced by living organisms. The enzymes are  engineered to perform in a particular way so it is ecologically friendly. The enzymes biodegrade rather than linger in the water supply.) 
  • Her mom died of ovarian cancer and left her a small inheritance money which she invested in her business.    
  • Her business has shifted so much in the last 2 years that boutique and department stores are regular consignment. She chases everything and goes here there and everywhere trying to please all clients. 
  • She has shifted back to basic and core designs. 
  • She doesn’t sketch or design. Someone does it for her. 
  • She hires people who are smarter than she is.  So is fully supported by people  who know how to help her. 
  • She values her support team so much. Everybody is important to her. It’s hard if anyone quits because she feels to dedicated to the people she spends most of her day with. 
  • She likes coloring fabric.
  • She didn’t learn her business  in a  business school. She doesn’t understand cash flow
  • A friend helped fund her company. She had 7 different rounds of funding. 
  • Her secret to having sources of funding is in connecting to people. She talks to everybody because “You never know who you gonna meet. I created different connections.”
  • She didn’t prepare any business plan. She simply made friends and connections.  She discovered that it’s really about needing people. Her investors didn’t put money into any business plan, they just invested on her. 
  • She made a lot of mistakes along the way and she even repeated her mistakes but she never gave up.
  • Technology has a lot of impact on her business. She is learning every single day. She makes changes to adapt to a very fluid business environment so she is always prepared to shift and adjust accordingly.
  • She was featured on HSN (Home Shopping Network)and sold out all her scarf. 
  • She sells her apparel on many different outlets and stores  such as Bloomingdales, Revolve, Madison, A Pea in the Pod, Black Label, and many others.  She also sells every single product on her website. With a Peruvian backer, she is planning to have a stronger online business selling basic designs. 
  • She is selling in Canada. To find a store in Canada that carries Nation LTD apparel, pls contact Dawn at Wilshire Fashions.

Laura Roeder is the founder of Edgar, a social media automation tool designed to prevent social media content from going to waste by recycling  the content stored in its library according to some parameters that you set up.  Since 2009, Laura’s been teaching entrepreneurs how to harness the power of social media marketing and create their own fame.  She was named one of the top 100 entrepreneurs under 35 in 2011, 2013 and 2014 and spoke at numerous industry conferences  BlogWorld, The South by Southwest Interactive Conference, Real Estate Connect, The Social Communications Summit and Blogher. She has also spoken at the White House about the value of entrepreneurship.

SHOWNOTES:

 

  • She learned about aspects of business while working for an agency as a graphic designer. She learned about marketing, client relations, and branding.  
  • She quit that job and started working for herself at the age of 22.   
  • She founded Edgar in 2014 and it’s the only company that  she’s  actively running now.
  • She first started just doing websites and design work for local businesses. 
  • People kept telling her to teach about social media.  People paid for that. 

So she went into social media training as she realized training was way easier than making websites. 

  • She previously did productized consulting or information products.   
  • She realized that the best time to become an entrepreneur is while you’re young and you have no obligations because if you don’t succeed, you can just easily look for a job.
  • She realized that very few people see what you post so it’s sensible to re-use the same content. 
  • Before Edgar, they were manually preparing spreadsheets full of  content and were manually copy-pasting content. The manual system had a lot of limitations. 
  • Edgar was built to be software to do automatically what they used to do manually.
  • They chose the name Edgar because it was easy to pronounce and remember and it was a well-loved name of an elderly family member.  
  • Edgar just took off so quickly that it quickly surpassed their training business.  It was different than other tools where you have to keep refilling your queue. It’s a massive time saver. 
  • Laura’s company now employs 18 people from Canada and USA. 
  • By  working from home, they are not just limited to one geographic area when they hire people. 
  • MeetEdgar costs only $49 a month for 10 social media accounts.

“Great teams are not built on similarities.” Sally Hogshead, a world class branding expert and international best-selling author created a test assessment that is based on branding rather than psychology.

Sally graduated from Duke University and then went into advertising. After working with world class brands she moved on to personal branding. In her research she has discovered that when people are fascinated with something then they are captivated by a product. So why not apply this to people and help them find what their captivating values are?

Sally will share in this broadcast:

  • What is fascination?
  • How her assessment works?
  • Great teams are not built on similarities

Welcome! Today’s featured broad is Leanne Ely, who has the answer to the age-old question, “What’s for dinner?” Leanne has made it her mission to save dinner for families! In 2001, she launched Menu Mailer, a menu-planning subscription service that offers recipes, shopping lists, and nutritional information. She has been called “The Mother of Menu Planning.” If your idea of planning dinner is deciding on takeout, then we have great news for you!

My conversation with Leanne covers the following:

  • How Leanne drew security in her childhood from having “family dinner” at the table every night
  • How she started her catering business and noticed that families didn’t do dinner together anymore: “Is THIS the new norm?”
  • How Leanne’s story includes some very tough days, including being a divorced, single mom, homeschooling her kids and running her business
  • How the course of her life changed when she won a recipe contest in 1996 and then wrote her first book, which she sold out of the trunk of her car
  • Leanne thought, “I could do this for a living!” She has gone on to write over ten books now.
  • Leanne’s advice to others includes: be original, seek out expertise early, and hire people to help you ASAP—especially in customer service!
  • Leanne’s business is truly a family affair, with three generations: her mom, herself, and her daughter!
  • Menu Mailer includes a 7-day free trial that anyone can use, accessing their database to create a customized plan.
  •   Leanne shares her personal favorite recipe—and a phenomenal customer favorite: Garlic Lime Chicken!
  • Leanne’s mission plays perfectly into her partnership with Vanity Fair napkins, called “Take Back the Table.” Leanne says, “The table is where hearts are connected and tummies are fed.”
  • Leanne plans to hire some new people, stop doing too much, and continuing her “family first” mantra for her employees and business.
  • Leanne is most proud of the fact that she has never quit, the way her business has evolved, and the hard work, dedication, and loyalty of her team.
  • Leanne is a big fan of coaching, and recommends it to any new business owner.
