On Being the Gatekeeper of Our Mind
On this episode, I talk with Miki Agrawal. Canadian born entrepreneur and co-founder of WILD (the acclaimed farm-to-table, alternative pizza concept), THINX (a high-tech, period-proof underwear brand), Speax (a high-tech pee-proof underwear brand that helps women manage light bladder leakage), and most recently TUSHY (a company that is revolutionizing the American toilet category with a modern, affordable, designer bidet attachment that both upgrades human health & hygiene as well as the environment from wasteful toilet paper consumption).
Miki is a serial social entrepreneur and the recipient of The Tribeca Film Festival’s “Disruptive Innovation Award”, she was named “2017 Young Global Leader by World Economic Forum”, “Social Entrepreneur of the Year” by the World Technology Summit, she was one of INC Magazine’s “Most Impressive Women Entrepreneurs of 2016”, Forbes’ “Top 20 Millennials on a Mission”, and made the cover of Entrepreneur Magazine in 2016. Most recently, she was named Fast Company’s Most Creative People in 2018.
Phew! So it goes without saying that Miki is on a mission to stir shit up in the best possible way.
What I love most about Miki, is her drive to stand steady in her truth. To speak the words that many dare not speak and to do the things many are too afraid to do. She is a Rebel in every sense of the word. Pushing boundaries, expanding the edges of society, and doing it while still remembering what it’s all really about.
