Advice and stories from my friends on how they have pursued their dreams and goals have really helped me and I am excited to help bring those stories to a larger audience and inspire other women. We are not alone in our journeys, and I wanted to create something that illustrated this."

Launching as a companion program to the magazine, The Life video series contains stories of female entrepreneurs who share their personal stories and tips for starting a business or pursuing their dream careers. Released on a monthly basis, the videos include: founder of FEED projects Lauren Bush Lauren, celebrity fashion stylist Elizabeth Stewart, E!
