This week we're talkin' about SEX, LOVE & OTHER THINGS (hehe shameless plug for our event on October 14th) with Co-Founder and CEO of Unbound Box, POLLY RODRIGUEZ!  We discuss everything from how and why she started Unbound Box, her battle at 21 years old with colon cancer and early menopause, the male dominated sex industry, to sexuality as a whole. Polly and Unbound Box have been featured in press like BustleThe New York Times, Bravo, Glamour, and POPSUGAR for revolutionizing the sex industry and giving the best advice as a boss-ass business owner. With that being said, here's some of the goodies we explore in the episode:

  • Polly's experience with colon cancer while living abroad in Spain - having the symptoms and not knowing what to do, dropping out of school, chemotherapy, surgeries, being catapulted into menopause, and ultimately being embarrassed by her illness and sexuality
  • the negative stigmas with menopause and any major health deficiency
  • her professional time on Capitol Hill, then moving to Manhattan and deciding to go into business strategy and working for a dating startup
  • why SEX is so stigmatized & how Polly found the market opportunity to address it through a brand new project
  • the resistance and criticism she received for starting Unbound Box, with her reputation being highly judged
  • her first sex trade show, the mechanics of the show, & how it was male dominated
  • what it's really like to not only start a business as a female, but to FIND INVESTORS as a female for a sex business
  • how to get the attention of INVESTORS and the art of the PITCH
  • what is a SEXY that people can relate to
  • how sex is more a WELLNESS and SELF-CARE action than a taboo
  • how for women, sexuality is all about PERMISSION and we talk about how to give to yourself
