Sareta & Cee Catch Up

This week on Women Who Rebrand, it’s bring your partner to work day! The ladies find out if Sareta really knows what her husband actually does at work!

They talk to Danny Fontaine, Creative Director at IBM by day and Pitch Guy by…erm, outside the hours of 9-5. Danny is a storyteller – he creates compelling stories that build emotional connections with an audience to sell products and services.

Through the use of psychology, Danny explains that pitching is the same whether it’s done by a large corporation for millions of pounds worth of business or an individual who is touting themselves as qualified to sit on a panel discussion with a bunch of Instagram influencers.

Topics discussed during this episode:

  • Why storytelling is so crucial when developing a pitch.
  • How to create an emotional connection with your audience.
  • The importance of injecting your personality into your pitch.
  • Be one step ahead of your audience and tell people what they want to hear.
  • How to talk about the money without underselling yourself and your product.
  • Knowing your value and walking away.

This threesome (in the most platonic sense) talks about championing women in the workplace and recruiting a diverse workforce. They share opinions and experiences around tokenism, quotas and ways to build a genuinely diverse candidate pool from which the best-qualified person gets the job.

Danny’s advice? Tell stories by delivering emotion first and information second. Listen to the episode to discover how creating the perfect pitch and Toy Story are connected.

To Sell is Human: The Surprising Truth About Persuading, Convincing, and Influencing Others By Dan Pink

“Excellent . . . radical, surprising, and undeniably true” – Harvard Business Review.

Parents sell their kids on going to bed. Spouses sell their partners on mowing the lawn. We sell our bosses on giving us more money and more time off. And in astonishing numbers we go online to sell ourselves on Facebook, Twitter and Match.com profiles.

Relying on science, analysis and his trademark clarity of thought, Pink shows that sales isn’t what it used to be. Then he provides a set of tools, tips, and exercises for succeeding on this new terrain – including six new ways to pitch your idea, three ways to understand another’s perspective, five frames that can make your message clearer, and much more.

In this week’s episode, Sareta and Chioma talk to fashion creative, menopause aficionado and general carefree, Black woman Karen Arthur. 

You may know Karen through her podcast Menopause Whilst Black. You could have seen her campaigning alongside Davina McCall, Mariella Frostrup and Lisa Snowdon outside the Houses of Parliament. Perhaps you’ve seen her modelling for Specsavers on giant billboards? Either way, you’ll know even more about Karen after this episode of Women Who Rebrand.

Karen’s recent experience of transitioning from peri to post-menopause has enabled her to live her best life, let go of her scarcity mindset and recognise what she brings to the table. It has helped her realise that “no is a complete sentence”. Rather than being the worst time of her life, it has empowered her, and Chioma and Sareta love it! Dare they say, they may even be a little bit excited to begin their own menopause journeys… 

Topics discussed during this episode: 

  • Becoming a grandmother and letting go. 
  • The different stages of menopause. 
  • The various ways menopause can manifest and the fact that there is no universal experience. 
  • The lack of research into menopause and what this means for those who go through it. 
  • The health and medical inequalities that impact Black people going through menopause. 
  • Supporting yourself through menopause, medically, physically and emotionally. 
  • Giving ‘zero fux’ after menopause. 
  • Menopause activism. 
  • The recent trend of becoming “menopause-friendly” employers.

The Stages of Menopause

  • Menopause is when your periods stop due to a depletion of specific hormones such as estrogen and testosterone.
  • This usually happens between the ages of 45 and 55; however, it can occur sooner.
  • It can happen earlier for reasons such as surgery to remove the ovaries (oophorectomy) or the uterus (hysterectomy), cancer treatments like chemotherapy, or a genetic reason.
  • Perimenopause is when you have symptoms before your periods have stopped. You reach menopause when you have not had a period for 12 months.
  • Menopause and perimenopause can cause symptoms like anxiety, mood swings, brain fog, hot flushes and irregular periods.
  • These symptoms can start years before your periods stop and carry on afterwards.

  • White privilege.
  • Diversity, inclusion and representation in fashion.
  • The pressures on women, especially mothers and female carers, in the male-dominated fashion industry.

“The New Enfant Terrible of Fashion Entrepreneurship” – A creator to the end of her fingertips

Sicilian-born Francesca says her roots play a significant part in how she envisions and creates her Business Ventures. She embraces and embodies all of her ancestries as a Sicilian, American Indian, Mediterranean, North African, East African, Middle Eastern, and Ashkenazi Jew.

Her taste for designing, creating a concept and couture has been with her since the tender age of four. By ten, she started designing and sewing outfits for her little sister’s dolls. Her designs had an edge to them, a different touch to them.

“Designer in the soul, Londoner of heart and Sicilian in the skin…” They are rare, those designers who can honestly say that they know how to sew, alter, iron, etc… that they are 100% involved from the designing to the production and the shows.
Her designs and creations have won her numerous awards in the UK, France (Talons Aiguilles and Best Young Designer Award), Turkey (Young Designer Award) and Italy (Praemium Award).

Francesca Marotta has had shows at London Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, Philadelphia Fashion Week, Istanbul’s Marmara Fashion Week, Made In Medi Fashion Week in Italy, Los Angeles Fashion Week, Oakland, California, Lille in France, Liège in Belgium, Dublin in Ireland and Osaka in Japan.

Celebrities such as Lauryn Hill, Natalie Dormer, Natasha Bedingfield, Jessie J, Ana Matronic, Whitney Port, Andreja Pejic, Skin from Skunk Anansie, Jhene Aiko, KarruecheTran, Kristin Knox, Kelly Brook, Irina Lazareanu, Jodie Kidd have worn the label.
This is the label to wear if you want to stand out in the crowd and make a statement.

Discover an Artist who never waits for other people’s inspirations to dare her differences! She is simply conceptual; a trend-setter, an ‘Avant-Gardiste’.

As a wardrobe designer, her main accomplishments were to work with cinematographers: Michael Seresin, Vanya Peirani-Vignes, Jude Campbell AD, Francesco Caradonna, and Toni Castells on his “Life from Light” Opera.
This is where her work ethic, creative vision and strength lie. Her approach to style has the “Je ne sais quoi” factor.
Her thorough knowledge of the fashion industry, designing and garment construction, and her deep love and respect for craftsmanship and textiles translate into her work.

Her work has been published in:
Harpers Bazaar China, Vision China, Zink Magazine, Vogue Japan, Vogue Italia, Vogue USA, Vogue UK, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Financial Times “How To Spend It”, Creem USA, Treats, British Journal of Photography, Rankins issue of S Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Fabulous Magazine and 500+ other publications.

The Scissor Sisters, Stuart Zender, Charlotte Hope, Andreja Pejic, Sophie Anderton, Ye Mingzi, Amy Lennox, Camilla Kerslake, Meeta Raval, Sir Steve Redgrave, Gianluca Vialli, Great Britain National Rugby League Team, to name a few.

Companies such as Warwick Guitars, Agresti Luxury Safe Boxes, Malmaison Hotels, Hotel Du Vin, Toni & Guy, Trevor Sorbie, and Vidal Sassoon have trusted her vision.

She is associated with Ki Price, Nicolas Velter, Casey Moore, Squiz Hamilton, Arron Dunworth, Oggy Yordanov, Woland, Andrew Farrar, Paulina Surys, Alexander Beer, Nuno Veloso, Julius Zulkarnaen…
As a Creative Director and Visual Merchandiser, one of her career highlights was being in charge of “Cultural Invasion” Pop-Up Stores by CMG Global in California.

Career paths included international design, consultancy, directing, broadcasting, styling, and business mentoring experience; Francesca started a new creative venture, Zion Zane magazine.

She has interviewed the likes of Prince Koussou Alam-Sogan (Prince of Dahomey), The US Secretary of The Interior Deb Haaland, Leonard Peltier (The Longest Serving Political Prisoner in American History), Patricia Manfield aka Heir, Renato Balestra, The Bloom Twins, Wen Jun Lau, Ninette Murk, Oscar Wang, Nina Runsdorf. The list of personalities goes from musical artists to fashion icons to entrepreneurs, and royalty, including members of the British Royal Family.

She is currently styling and working in art direction, brand and creative consultancy, guest designing, casting and production.
There are people that you would like to see every day once you’ve met them. You know…when in a split second, you are sure that you are dealing with someone nice, someone who is worth it.
Someone you can appreciate and can admire their talent and their work. You can spend hours watching them in the middle of their creating stages…

She definitely has The Midas Touch…well…
She does it all with evident and deep pleasure.” – francescamarotta.com

Up From Slavery by Booker T. Washington. The author is one of Francesca’s ultimate civil rights and entrepreneurship heroes.
Francesca started work as a civil rights activist aged 9. She had a school teacher who would the class write to Amnesty International every Friday, which led to Francesca organising my first anti-racism march aged 12.

Grinding All My Life by her late friend Nipsey Hussle, whom she was blessed to have known and who, she states, gave her business advice like no other. The lyrics of this song are indeed a definition of Francesca – “I know His Spirit would love to be mentioned”.

The Tribe of Shabazz Show, with the speeches by Malcolm X, whom Francesca grew up looking up to.

Francesca has many motivational speakers she looks up to; however, she would like to recommend two women she loves. Maya Angelou and Shirley Chisholm. “They are two of the most remarkable women to have walked this Earth”.

Sareta & Cee Catch Up

Sareta and Chioma welcome social media and brand manager, Jessica Deeker. Jessica is currently an expat based in the Caribbean. “What’s the difference between an expat and an immigrant?” the ladies asked- Well, an expat temporarily resides in a country outside of their place of birth to work. An immigrant lives in the country permanently. 

Although Chioma discusses how she probably wouldn’t work abroad due to missing home comforts, including a cuppa, Sareta is up for sunnier climates. Have any of you thought about a new life abroad?

Expat - dkr.branding

Jessica Deeker is a British social media and brand manager who works in Grenada creating content in the sun! By definition, she’s an expat, and today, we’ll be discussing what it’s like to have your dream job in a dreamy location.

Grenada is a small island country of volcanic origin in the eastern Caribbean. It lies just 160 kilometres north of Venezuela. Grenada has a ridge of mountains that run from north to south with steep valleys. It also features large areas of tropical rainforest.

“Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean, is a hidden gem with unspoiled beauty offering a lifestyle so pure and authentic that you will feel instantly renewed. Famed for its aromatic spices and organic chocolate, the tri-island destination of Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique is located in the eastern Caribbean just south of Barbados. The Pure Grenada experience beckons visitors to its 40 white sandy beaches including the world-famous Grand Anse Beach, 15 breathtaking waterfalls, 5 chocolate factories, 3 rum distilleries, and more than 30 unforgettable dive sites, including the largest shipwreck in the Caribbean ‘Bianca C’ and the World’s First Underwater Sculpture Park. The World Travel & Tourism Council “Safe Travels” approved destination is committed to protecting your health and safety while allowing you to tailor a beyond-the-ordinary Pure Grenada experience, Just-For-you.” – Pure Grenada

The climate of Grenada is tropical, which means that between January and May you can expect a lot of rain. The rest of the year is hot and dry with temperatures reaching 30°C. Although Grenada is a beautiful country to consider, be aware that the island is susceptible to hurricanes.

Music is a big part of Grenada’s culture, and calypso is the most popular genre, as well as reggae, dancehall, and parang. All of these genres can be heard during their yearly carnival.  

Grenada can be described as the epitome of a Caribbean island and many expats’ dream destination. It has beautiful beaches, waterfalls, and exotic wildlife. Afternoons can be spent in the markets, shopping for spices and fish, and evenings can be enjoyed while sipping the locally-made rum.

More From Our Guest

A Brand Manager is a professional responsible for ensuring that the company’s products, services, and product lines resonate with current or potential customers. In addition, they monitor marketing trends and keep an eye on competitive companies in the marketplace to stay ahead of the competition.

A Social Media Manager is responsible for overseeing a company’s interactions with the public by implementing social media platforms’ content strategies. Their duties include analysing engagement data, identifying trends in customer interactions and planning digital campaigns to build community online.

Small businesses will often employ a singular person to undertake both roles. However, as social media platforms have grown in recent years, most business owners realise the need for small marketing teams. Content creation doesn’t stop at writing; it includes photography, videography, and a creative vision. Jessica explained that she has grown a team to ensure she stays on top when it comes to delivering.

Sareta & Cee Catch Up

Sareta and Chioma welcome breast cancer advocate and survivor Carly Moosah. Before joining the studio, the hosts briefly discuss how cancer has affected people in their lives and how important it is to get checked if you have any signs or symptoms of the disease.

This weeks guest

Life After Breast Cancer Carly Moosah

Carley Moosah is the co-founder of KeepEmQuiet. Fun packs aimed at children to keep them entertained during periods of travel, rainy days, & weddings. She is a breast cancer advocate who lost her mother to breast cancer a decade before Carly herself was diagnosed with the disease at age 37. She joins us today to tell us about her incredible journey, surviving cancer and what she plans to do next.

Carly’s intentions in sharing her story have been to spread awareness about breast cancer and get people to check their boobs and know what to look for.

Before her diagnosis, the message was loud and clear…early detection is vital. Carly was living proof that early detection is imperative; she had stage 2, grade 3, triple-negative Breast Cancer with a BRCA1 gene mutation. She faced an aggressive treatment plan and radical surgery due to the gene; however, things were positive. Due to some chunky painful lymph nodes discovered on a chemo ward with her sister, Carly immediately booked to see her GP. Within a week, she had a diagnosis, her early detection likely saved her life.

Initially, Carly went into warrior mode, as her therapist put it. She shed very few tears but had a solid positive mental attitude. Although Carly didn’t want people to feel sorry for her, there were times when sharing her vulnerable moments was harder. Honouring authenticity, she opened herself up to sharing the highs and lows of her breast cancer journey and this chapter of her life. Carly had to admit that the lows were par the course. Some moments were the highest highs and lowest lows. Some days she felt like she had nothing to give, riddled with fatigue, chemo fog & relentless negativity. Those were the hard days when she thought that perhaps sharing her journey may hinder the help she wanted to give; the realities of cancer can be very, very ugly.

More From Our Guest

“When my husband and I launched our business, KeepEmQuiet.com, in 2016, I went from a private Instagram to a public one to connect, network and help spread the word about our new venture in what was at the time was a mainly female blogging space. As time went on, I started sharing more and more about myself personally. About my grief on losing my Mum to breast cancer at 27. About mental illness, with a family history of depression, bipolar, and suicide attempts. About my eating disorder in my teens and body issues. I realised that connecting with people on this deeper level and sharing my story felt right; even if it helped just one person, it was worth it to be vulnerable and honest. I have always found writing a cathartic, therapeutic experience.

In October 2019, I stripped to a pink bra to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, having lost my beautiful Mum to the disease, just as she lost hers, whom I never met. One month later, aged 37, I received a diagnosis myself. For 6 months, I had not mentioned my older sister’s Ovarian cancer diagnosis online. It was not my story to tell, and so I had lived and breathed cancer for 6 months whilst my Instagram told a different story. And now, here I was, with my own diagnosis. Do I silently just go quiet and knuckle down with treatment or invite others along for the maddest ride of my life? For over a week, my family and I got our heads around the diagnosis. I told friends. I had tests. And we celebrated our baby girl turning 4 in amongst the agonising upheaval of all that lay ahead. And then, on Sunday evening, I wrote the words “I have breast cancer” on Instagram, and clicked ‘share’. The support and outpouring of love were immediately overwhelming and filled me with strength.

The highest points throughout sharing my cancer diaries have been the messages I received. People who have checked out pains and lumps that they had previously ignored and had the incredible relief to find out that they are benign. Those messages make the sharing so, so worth it. By sharing my experiences, I have helped others going through their own cancer journeys. It’s true what they say, a problem shared is a problem halved. This brings me to the point that if you have gotten this far, please do me one favour and check your boobs immediately. Don’t be scared; get to know your body, and get to the GP if you have any concerns. I felt like I was wasting everyone’s time waiting to have my ultrasound. Please know that checking your health is NEVER wasting anyone’s time. Doctors get a lot more joy from telling you that you have nothing than telling you something. Please CHECK YOUR BOOBS.

A cancer diagnosis flips your world in an instant. It gives you a perspective on all you want your life to be if you can get to the other side. I’m nearing that side now, and I’m so driven to live to my fullest, my healthiest, my best me. I have never ever been more convinced that all that truly matters is that we have our health and our loved ones. This is the fundamental basis of happiness, and having cancer has made me reflect on all the beauty that love and health can allow. ” – Carly Moosah.

The book explains which supplements work and the key stress management habits we can implement to bring long-lasting and sustainable changes to our hormones and menstrual health. In Western society, we have accepted a cultural narrative that periods are supposed to be painful, emotional and messy.

This book is a practical guide that helps women change the way they look at their period and menstrual cycle to harness the power of the fifth vital sign finally.

More From Our Guest

“I work with women who struggle with sugar cravings, hormonal bloating & acne and low energy and help them understand their menstrual cycle. The intensive work I do with my clients helps them get control over hormonal issues such as PMS, fibroids, PCOS, endometriosis, heavy, missing, irregular & painful periods, and perimenopause. I love seeing my clients regain their spark, improve their health and boost their energy.”- Le’Nise Brothers.

Le’Nise Recommends

Untitled. A poem by the great poet Lucille Clifton

some dreams hang in the air
like smoke. some dreams
get all in your clothes and
be wearing them more than you do and
you be half the time trying to
hold them and half the time
trying to wave them away.
their smell be all over you and
they get to your eyes and
you cry. the fire be gone
and the wood but some dreams
hang in the air like smoke
touching everything.

Sareta & Cee Catch Up

It’s National Vegetarian Week, what better way to help educate the masses than to devote a whole episode to non-meat food discussions. Sareta and Chioma discuss their eating habits and special diets; could one of them be converted after meeting their special guest?

Author, professional chef, and Vegan Tomi Makanjuolabut joins the ladies this week. They discuss Tomi’s career, background, and realistic ways you can become Vegan. Unlike Tomi, it doesn’t have to be an overnight decision! 

 

This weeks guest

Tomi Makanjuola

Tomi was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria (West Africa). For as long as she can remember, she has absolutely loved food. From shopping for it to making it to watching other people experiment with it on TV cooking shows. Like writing, she explains, it was somewhat of a creative outlet, a way to express herself and bring exciting food ideas to life. Tomi’s Mother has taught her everything she knows about traditional Nigerian food.

She learned cool cooking hacks and flavours from her Dad that she still uses to this day. In Tomi’s household, life revolved around food, marking every occasion, special or otherwise!

As a child, Tomi recruited her siblings and convinced them to turn our dining room into our own little restaurant for a week. We hand-wrote menus, decided on our’ opening hours’ and everything! Our parents were only too happy (and bemused) to play along.

Fast forward a couple of decades, and Tomi still loves everything to do with food and gets a thrill whenever she gets to share it.

Tomi turned vegan for health and animal welfare reasons back in 2013; “I was studying towards a degree in English and French at Oxford University. A career in food wasn’t even on the cards back then. During my year abroad in France, I started up this blog as a way to showcase all my culinary experiments.”

‘The Vegan Nigerian’ platform, by Tomi Makanjuola, is dedicated to making Nigerian cuisine and the vegan lifestyle accessible to the mainstream – through online resources, workshops and bespoke events.
She’s a private chef, runs fun and inspiring pop-up events and restaurants, and hosts guests from around the world through her Airbnb vegan Nigerian dining experience. Tomi also conducts live cookery workshops and demonstrations and offers Nigerian food at markets and festivals around London & southeast England.

You can book Tomi if you’re thinking about becoming a vegan; she offers personal vegan coaching to aspiring vegans.

Tomi is an author and has a cookbook available to purchase through all reputable sites, called, “Vegan Nigerian Kitchen“.

By Any Greens Necessary by Tracye Lynn McQuirter
“With attitude and inspiration, this lifestyle guide shows Black women how they can be healthy, hippy, and happy by eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and legumes as part of an active lifestyle. African American women face a health crisis and explosive rates of death and disability from heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, and this book provides authoritative research to illustrate how a plant-based diet can reverse this trend. Encouraging readers to think about the foods they choose and what their choices mean to overall health, the manual shows that a diet of meat, fish, fowl, dairy, and refined grains is hazardous not only to human bodies but also to the planet and animals. With its much-needed nutritional analysis, the book also offers practical advice about how to transition to vegan foods; delicious and nutritious recipes; a comprehensive grocery shopping list for restocking the fridge and pantry; recommended resources; and inspirational vegetarian quotes from famous African Americans, including Oprah Winfrey, Alice Walker, Angela Bassett, Erykah Badu, Russell Simmons, and Dick Gregory.”

Sareta & Cee Catch Up

Sareta and Chioma welcome dating expert and educator lalalaletmeexplain, but swap previous dating stories before doing so. It seems like, Sareta, divorcee and now married, and Chioma, happily married for over a decade, could have used Lala’s book while dating.

Although things worked on in the end, they could have avoided so much. At least they can laugh about their experiences now!

More From Our Guest

An essential tip for dating in 2022 is, Do the work first.
“Unless you want to cost yourself thousands of extra pounds in therapy, I would highly recommend doing the work before jumping fanny-first into the dating pool. Dating before we have figured out our own attachment styles, taken stock of our own red flags, and just generally healed from past trauma, can often lead to messy and complicated relationships.

When we date from a place of low self-worth or desperation for love we can end up repeating patterns and choosing the wrong people over and over again. Seek therapy if you can, write out a list of some of your previous dates and relationships and what went wrong – see if there are any patterns, and really really work on self-love and on loving being single.” – LalalaLetMeExplain

Misjustice: How British Law is Failing Women by Helena Kennedy
“One of our most eminent lawyers and defenders of human rights shows how the British justice system is discriminating against and failing, women
Helena Kennedy forensically examines the pressing new evidence that women are being discriminated against when it comes to the law. From the shocking lack of female judges to the scandal of female prisons and the double discrimination experienced by BAME women, Kennedy shows with force and fury that change for women must start at the heart of what makes society just.”

Sareta & Cee Catch Up

The importance of choosing yourself

During this week’s catch up, Sareta and Chioma share details of how they practice the concept of ‘choosing yourself’ and how to be selfish in the most positive sense. Self-care doesn’t have to be about facials and spa days; it’s about putting yourself first so you can live while being the very best version of yourself. If you’re lacking in self-love, you’re not going to be capable of showing up wholeheartedly for others.

This weeks guest

Tamu Thomas, founder of Live Three Sixty

Tamu is an emotional well-being coach and the purveyor of joy. She wants people to enjoy who you are from the inside out. She believes in the potent power of pleasure; joy is a mighty healing tonic with the capacity to teach us how to own the full spectrum of what we feel. 

This week, Chioma and Sareta talked to Tamu Thomas, founder of Live Three Sixty. She’s a well-being Coach, qualified Social Worker & Somatic Coach. She helps over-functioning, highly ambitious women tune in to how powerful they are. Tamu supports her clients so they can begin to create systems of care for themselves and avoid rinsing themselves out. If you don’t already, get your favourite pen and your prettiest notebook because you will want to take some notes during this episode of Women Who Rebrand!

The ladies talk about Tamu’s life journey and how, even if it didn’t feel like it initially, her experiences led her to where she is now. She has always been a gatherer of people, bringing them together and organising events, from her school days, nay, nursery days! Formally, she ran a Brunch Club, where women in the creative industries could come together and discuss in a supportive environment. There was also Motherhood Reconstructed, with a previous Women Who Rebrand guest Leah, where Black mothers could come together and share experiences. She has been connecting people, from seemingly different and incompatible groups, for years. Nothing has been an accident; everything happens for a reason!

Tamu describes herself as the ‘Purveyor of Joy’; she explains joy as a settled state of confidence, contentment and hope. Her theory helps us see how choosing yourself by prioritising and setting boundaries can ensure that your happiness is protected. She begs us to give ourselves a break and show ourselves some compassion.

“I support freelance and entrepreneurial women to learn how to take care of their needs, enjoy who they are and cultivate a trusting friendship with themselves.

I am a joyful lover of life. I am curious about what it is to be human and I love to learn. I live in a state of awe and wonder. I will never not be amazed that we were birthed from this beautiful planet. The fact that we live on a floating rock covered in soil and water only protected by the ozone layer is amazing. I think it is a real privilege to be a human being and wish we embodied that, I recognise that this is a privilege – I know that my parents and ancestors endured a lot for me to create this privilege for myself despite living in a system that is built to oppress me.” – Tamu Thomas

The Ultimatum; Marry or Move On' - Netflix

Before welcoming this week’s guest, Sareta and Chioma discussed ‘The Ultimatum; Marry or Move On’. The show’s a spin-off from the ladies’ favourite dating show, Love Is Blind, and encourages couples to put their love to the test. Hosts Nick & Vanessa Lachey introduce other potential matches. Couples have an opportunity to date and potentially marry instead of their current partners. Expect mess, tears, and tantrums; a Netflix dating show wouldn’t be a hit without the emotional recipe for disaster.

Wear 'em Out - Lauren Derrett - Women Who Rebrand

Earth Week may have been last week, but sustainability and environmental awareness are for life! Sareta and Chioma continue the theme by chatting with Lauren Derrett, founder of Wear ’em Out, a reusable period pad brand that’s changing the way people period.

Lauren left school at 14 and describes herself as an introverted Jack of all trades. She started her first business aged 40 and credits her success to being open to the lessons that failure brings and can pivot at a moment’s notice.

As converts to reusable period products, the ladies are keen to understand why more of us should be using them and why it’s essential to recognise that not everyone can – and that’s ok. They also have an interesting chat about some of the sacrifices we must make, even when we want to save the planet because we do what we can. As Lauren says, “we’re here to respect the 50 shades of green”, so no judgement.

Lauren shared information about her educational Wear ’em Out packs during the show. They were created to be used in a learning environment and strike up a much-needed conversation around periods. If you’d like to learn more, visit the Wear ’em Out website – Wear ’em Out Educational packs.

More From Our Guest

Did you know that a single disposable pad or tampon takes longer to degrade than the lifespan of the person who wore it, in fact, it can take up to 800 years! Or that 4.3 billion disposable menstrual products are used in the UK every year equating to 200,000 tonnes of menstrual waste hitting UK landfills per year?  The good news is, that making the switch to more eco-friendly periods is easy.

“Hey, I’m Lauren, founder of WEO. I’ve created a pretty darn cool, totally reliable and efficient re-useable pad for you to use when you’re on your period. It’s for all you eco-curious, modern people out there. It’s time to pave the way, set new trends, cross new boundaries, and be the influence all while contributing to our shared one home, our innocent and affected planet. ⁠Try it, I promise you won’t look back.” – Lauren Derrett, founder of Wear ’em Out
