Behind Her Empire Podcast: Create Millions By Solving Your Own Problem
Lizanne Falsetto

On this episode of Behind Her Empire podcast, hear from Lizanne Falsetto, founder and former CEO of thinkThin, a better-for-you, high-protein nutrition bar for active women on the go. It's a company she led for over ten years and sold for over $200 million. She's now an advisor to small and medium-sized entrepreneurial companies in the natural food and wellness industries. She also founded Pink Talented Angels in 2019 to connect young female founders with seasoned professionals, in order to help them grow.


Key Takeaways:

  • When founders build a brand to solve their own, personal problem, they're more emotionally connected to it, and therefore are more driven and efficient to bring that product or idea to market.
  • Women need to support women in order to build tribal communication - and the warmth that comes with it.
  • Falsetto self-funded the business and made sure that her receivables were 20 percent higher than her payables so what was coming in fueled what was going out.
"...so when you hit hurdles or when you hit the wall, just know that it is only teaching you something to learn. Pick it up and move forward."

"Females bring this huge depth of intuitive, emotional energy to the table that elevates a conversation in business."

Netflix and Google Are Poised to Dominate L.A. After the Pandemic

Are the upfronts turning into TV execs’ personal “Black Mirror'' episode?

The annual feeding frenzy—in which C-suite television executives auction off highly-viewed (and costly) advertising time slots— is changing as new streaming behemoths shake up the market. The event often gives viewers and industry watchers insight on what shows are poised to become cultural phenomena, but that too seems to be disrupted at this year’s proceedings.
