Terrible episode. Jen is incredibly unprofessional on the business side. Could have gone horribly wrong without any samples, unrealistic time lines and using investors' money for other products (picture books instead of suitcases?!).

Excellent story telling. Conveyed a great sense of the route the founder took. Pulled in the sense of the time and atmosphere in college and Berkley.

So... You had $3000 and a you also bought a van. You managed to drive all around the country AND then had enough money to buy land AND built a cabin? I checked the inflation rate. It means she probably had about $19,000 by today's standards. Plus cash for a van that could roadtrip. I don't know anywhere you can buy land and built a cabin for $19,000, and that's assuming she didn't spend much on the preceding road trip. 😬 What student has that kind of money? I'm guessing her well educated family had some hand in all of this. Or did the boyfriend pay for it? What I am saying is this... She acts like she was rejecting material things and seeking a simple life, which is great and all... But she isn't recognizing that it took a lot of money, probably not hers.... To do it. Just a hunch.. But I think there is more to this story. When the start of the story has holes like this I tend not to believe the whole American dream business building either... I just wish these people would tell the real truth. I get really annoyed by self made millionaire stories...usually if you dig a little deeper you realize their parents loaned them the startup money...or paid their rent, bought them a car... Etc. There is nothing wrong with that. But I just wish people were willing to share the truth of what they did and how they got where they are...

This was played on 22 May 2017. Why are you rehashing old episodes. People can go back and listen. If you have nothing new don't post.

terrible. I just wonder how she can choose that hap as her favorite career. it's like encouraging people to be more attached to consumerism and the material itself.

I loved this episode. Roxanne's story is inspiring and challenges many assumptions about women, success, leadership, innovation, and lifestyle. She is authentic, not boring. She's a different kind of leader than we normally meet. Thank you, Guy, for hosting her.
