Has there ever been a better time to decide what our lives should look like? We are emerging from a once-in-a-century cataclysm where our lives were upended, our communities remade and our priorities readjusted. Now as the call to return to “normal” grows more insistent, we get to ask the question: what does “normal” look like? Did the old normal serve me? What do I want my new normal to be? And what will that mean for my career, my community, and my family? These are the fundamental questions to building our lives – and now, rebuilding them. As a therapist and coach, Shoshanna Hecht has been wrestling with these very questions in her practice – and now, on this podcast. With guests from all walks of life including media, culture, politics, tech, business & activism, Shoshanna examines the overlap of our goals, relationships, boundaries and priorities, and how we can navigate them all with self-awareness and intention. What do we want our lives to look like? Welcome to Your New Life Blend.
Suzanne Lerner built a business with her husband, Michael Cohen, and that business was Michael Stars, the ubiquitous and long-standing fashion brand that there’s a very good chance has, at one point, made your favorite t-shirt or tank top or sweater or dress or otherwise clutch wardrobe staple. Suzanne and Michael built the Michael Stars brand in alignment with their values, prioritizing local production, fair wages, planet-friendly materials, and strong support of social justice causes.
In 2015, after almost 30 years of a life and business together, Michael passed away, and Suzanne has continued to carry on their shared vision, purpose and passion for creating positive social change. In this episode of “Your New Life Blend,” host Shoshanna Hecht speaks with Suzanne about how to build a purpose-driven company (and life), and why now feels like her time to teach.
