Create & Cultivate CEO Jaclyn Johnson


Today we’re sitting down with the founder of Create & Cultivate, Jaclyn Johnson! Bestselling author of the book WorkParty and host of WorkParty podcast, Jaclyn (a.k.a “Your Internet Work Wife”) is all about redefining “work” for the millennial woman. An OG hustler, the Forbes 30 Under 30 alumni started Create & Cultivate in 2012. The biannual conference now attracts over 1,500 females across North America, boasting superstar self-starters like Kim Kardiashian, Daphne Oz and history-making USA Olympian Ibtihaj Muhammad.

Oh and there’s a Beauty Summit and Self-Care Summit, too! Find out what kind of experiential magic you can try out at a Create & Cultivate mixer, like B12 shots, tarot cards and ear seeds to relieve stress. Not to mention all that mentoring advice on everything from building your own business to raising capital. And since we know that a lot of you are aspiring entrepreneurs yourselves, Jaclyn schools us on what it’s really like to own a business, how to cultivate a culture of female empowerment and what she looks for in a good hire.

But it wouldn’t be a Breaking Beauty podcast episode without finding out which beauty brands are earning top ranks in Jaclyn’s books right now (surprise: it’s not Glossier)… and what three products are in her bag at this very moment.
