What moment in your career are you the proudest of?

Having a job position that requires me to be both creative and professional. I am so intrigued by by the arts in general, but also new forms that are now accepted and being brought to light. I am so lucky to be a part of a team that has like minded individuals, I cannot wait to learn more about the true business side of things. I’m extremely proud to say that I am a part of a venture capitalist firm that invests in programs and startups that are actually beneficial and influential.

What trends are you most excited about right now?

I am super interested and excited about the music NFT movement. I feel as though it will help artists not only gain exposure but also will make fans/supporters feel more connected to the artist. Seeing my musician friends that have tapped into that industry succeed is so exciting. Though this is a bit of a broad and maybe even basic trend, I am really excited about the wave of second hand items. Vintage reselling (both clothing and furniture), thrifting, etc. though it has become so popular, it’s a great way to recycle and it could be really helpful for the environment if it becomes more regulated.

What founder inspires you the most?

Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nastygal. Her story is inspiring in so many ways, one being the fact her multi-million dollar company started in the back of her ‘87 Volvo. She’s a driven, hardworking, and bada** business woman. She has an incredible book called #GIRLBOSS, a show, also called #GIRLBOSS based on her life, started a community for women in the business industry, and now has her own company to help entrepreneurs start their dream business. She’s got an insane resume and her press is extremely impressive.

How do you make your worklife better?

I am huge on music in every setting. Fortunately, I am able to work from anywhere so I can always have music playing wherever I am. I also am big on having days where I avoid thinking about work at all, just completely existing in my own plane.

I learn so much in every conversation with Brianne. She has deep expertise and she cares. I’m a proud investor in WLV and would back anything Brianne does.
