Amy Robbins, Founder + CEO of Alexo Athletica — Glambition® Radio Episode 254 with Ali Brown

Amy Robbins on Glambition Radio with Ali Brown

After experiencing a threatening situation while training alone on a backroad for a marathon, Texas-based Amy Robbins wished there was women’s athletic apparel that could accommodate tools for self-defense, be it a taser, pepper spray, or a pistol. (And, she thought, why not also have room for your phone, car keys, and a tampon?)

When she realized nothing like this existed, she seized the opportunity and created Alexo Athletica (meaning to ‘defend and help’) in 2017. Now more than a fashionable carry-wear line, Alexo has built serious momentum on the waves of the #MeToo movement, educating on women’s empowerment and safety.

As you’ll hear on Glambition Radio, Amy’s mission goes much deeper than bringing her stylish and functional athletic line to market… it’s her passion for teaching women their options to defend themselves, and how these skills are so important to living a confident, self-reliant life—that truly lights her up.

On this episode of #GlambitionRadio, you’ll hear:

  • The original Runners World survey results that fueled Amy’s mission, sharing that nearly 80% of female runners have experienced some type of threat while training outside (she shares the details in our conversation, and I can surely relate)
  • My own journey to embracing self-defense, and my surprise to discover how many other women in my circles have been thinking the same thing… (In fact, my mind was blown when I started having this conversation with other women, across all party lines.)
  • How Amy AND her husband both quit their juicy, six-figure corporate jobs to ‘burn the boats’ and go all in on Alexo… and the impact this had on their marriage + family life
  • Why Amy was so motivated to become a disruptor in an intimidating and traditionally male-dominated industry… and how her newfound passion for women’s self-defense was completely supported by market data (hear the staggering statistics on 2020 alone!)

Breaking Out + A Special Invite for April 15

Breaking Out + A Special Invite for April 15

We’re off to a jam-packed spring here, especially with The Trust.

If you’ve seen my recent
IG Lives, you’ve heard me discuss the supportive energies that are available now, and how we can harness them to create what we have always
truly wanted for our lives and businesses.

It’s time to break out of our previous ‘systems’, and consciously shift into something better…

For those of you at the higher levels, I invite you to tap into a whole NEW circle of powerful, like-minded leaders who are charting their own paths, well outside the prescribed frameworks of their industries.

If this calls to you, please join me on a special call I’m hosting on April 15

The Trust is the modern, premier network for 7+8 figure women entrepreneurs who are looking for something much different than your typical mastermind or networking group.

We are preparing for more exciting growth and events, with some incredible Special Guest Advisors joining us — female business icons who have founded and led 9-figure companies.

>> If you are an entrepreneur currently running a business generating revenues within the 7+8 figure range, you are formally invited to my *closed-door informational session* on Thursday, April 15 at 1pm ET/10am PT.

Ellen Bennett, Founder + CEO of Hedley & Bennett — Glambition® Radio Episode 252 with Ali Brown

Ellen Bennett on Glambition Radio with Ali Brown

Have you (like me) found yourself baking more than ever over the past year? If so, you may have realized that an apron is the kitchen staple you didn’t know you needed. And if there’s anyone who knows the impact of a proper kitchen uniform, it’s today’s guest…

Ellen Bennett is the founder + CEO of Hedley & Bennett, the leading Los Angeles-based culinary workwear brand. After a 4-year culinary school experience in her native Mexico City, Ellen put her hustle and artistic flair to work in two LA Michelin Star restaurants, Providence and Baco Mercat. It was here Ellen confronted the kitchen staff’s shockingly poor-quality uniforms, which were a far cry from the quality, creativity, and excellence of the meals prepared! Thus, Hedley & Bennett was born to provide these kitchen ‘athletes’ with functional AND stylish aprons and workwear.

As you’ll learn on Glambition Radio, Ellen’s initial apron test run was a sizzling hit. What began as a 40-sample order soon turned into outfitting hundreds, then thousands, of restaurants and hospitality businesses with the finest quality materials available. (While this is impressive, Ellen’s NOT having all the answers and plowing ahead anyway is what I find most admirable!)

Today, Hedley & Bennett provides workwear and gear to outfit over 6,000 restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, resorts and hundreds of thousands of home cooks the world over. Hedley & Bennett has also collaborated with such brands as Vans, Madewell, Parachute Home, Rifle Paper Co., Product (RED) and others. Ellen and her company have been featured in the New York Times, Fast Company, Inc., Bon Appetit, Martha Stewart, The Today Show, and more. Her new book, ‘Dream First, Details Later: How to Quit Overthinking and Make It Happen!’ is now available for pre-order.

On this episode of #GlambitionRadio, you’ll hear:

  • Hedley & Bennett’s fastest growing business channel—and how to ritualize the gift of home cooking with a proper apron (I’m telling you, the feeling is REAL!)
  • The thought that lives in Ellen’s head ‘100% of the time’… and how she perseveres through ‘the world is ending’ moments (as if 2020 wasn’t enough, hear Ellen’s crazy eviction story!)
  • Ellen shares her very simple, basic strategy to market her products in real time by embracing THIS social dynamic with her customers…
  • How Ellen ‘Vitamixes’ her desires into existence—you’ll learn what this means—including her 200 lb. pet Oliver (can you guess what animal he is?!)
  • Why I wouldn’t get on Ellen’s bad side… and how everyone can channel her ‘go-getter’ attitude to help bring their visions to fruition
