Show Notes

In this episode, I welcome Anne Devereux-Mills who spent the first half of her career building and running advertising agencies in New York until an unexpected triple threat of cancer, empty nest, and job loss had her searching for what was next. 

In 2012 She founded the Parlay House which is a salon-style series of gatherings which now includes over 7000 women across the US, Europe, and the Middle East. Anne is also the author of the book The Parlay Affect, How female connection can change the world. 

Beyond the Parlay house Anne has worked on a number of philanthropic ventures from being a mentor for SHE-CAN foundation which helps female leaders coming from post-genocide countries, was a key member in helping pass Californias Proposition 36, which helped to reform Californias three strikes rule, and been the executive director of the Healthy Body Image Program.

Today we talk about staying connected during COVID, how social media is affecting adolescent girls, and how everyone should feel empowered to make a change.
