Visual Artist, Jade Purple Brown, on Trusting the Process and Knowing That Your Season Will Come
You may not recognize Jade Purple Brown's name, but chances are you have seen her work, which is featured as Adobe's splash image for Illustrator 2021. Jade is a New York–based visual artist who uses strong figures, vibrant colors, and messages of optimism in her graphic design, illustration & art direction. She has created art for major brands globally, including Apple, Facebook, Sephora, TikTok, and NYC Pride, to name a few.  Jade was on track to become a stylist, attending the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago for fashion marketing and management. However, in her final year, Jade learned how to use graphic design tools like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign and fell in love with them. Pursuing this love, after graduation, she spent six months creating her portfolio. She made up imaginary artist mentors and began modeling the way they presented themselves. Self-taught, Jade's work stood for itself, and she landed a full-time art director role. Eventually, Jade built up her clientele and skills, breaking away from her day job to pursue her entrepreneurial goals.  In this episode, Jade will share how she intuitively learned to trust the process, launched her business, gets creative, deals with burnout, client load, and copycats.

Samantha Ettus on Why Nothing Is Sexier Than Being Financially Independent and How to Live Fully in All the Slices of Your Life With Zero Guilt
Samantha Ettus knows how to win, and she has spent her life showing other women how to achieve success and balance in each facet of their lives. After graduating from Harvard and Harvard Business School, Samantha founded Ettus Media Management, a personal branding firm. She soon realized that many executives she worked with didn't know how to optimize their work-life balance, so she became an expert on the subject. Pivoting away from her company, she became a best-selling author and spoke to thousands of women about the challenges they faced reentering the workforce, getting a more lucrative job, or balancing having a family and succeeding in a career. But being an author wasn't enough for her. Recognizing that men dominated the credit card processing industry, she decided she wanted to do more than offer advice and inspiration to women. She wanted to help them to achieve financial independence. In 2018, she launched Park Place Payments, an award-winning company that has revolutionized the credit card processing space. To date, she has helped hundreds of diverse women previously left out of the workforce find new careers despite having no financial experience. In this episode, you will learn the tactics Samantha recommends to live a full life in every slice of your life, why there's no room for guilt, and how to empower anyone to believe that they are unstoppable. *** This episode of LEAVE YOUR MARK is brought to you by one of my all-time favorite brands, Stuart Weitzman!

Through a fortuitous meeting in Rome, Marc befriended the renowned writer, Fran Lebowitz, who pushed Marc to ask Andy Warhol if he could be the art director at Interview magazine. Andy said yes, and the rest, as they say, is history.
