Jen Sincero Went from 'Looserville' to Mayor of 'Awesome City' and She'll Show You How You, Too, Can Become a Badass

Jen Sincero uses foul language and in-your-face candor to get the attention of potential consulting clients and the media.  A one-time, self-described 'big fat looser,' Jen turned her life around and is now traveling the world advising others how to do likewise.

Her latest book, You Are A Badass, builds on her success with two previous books quasi-autobiographical books, "Don't Sleep with Your Drummer," and the bestselling, "The Straight Girl's Guide to Sleeping with Chicks."  Yes.  You read that correctly.

(We asked Jen the business lessons contained in "The Straight Girls Guide" and she quipped without missing a beat: "That was a different kind of business.") 

Jen is one part-comedian, one part success coach, and two parts Badass.  She is also Dean Rotbart and David Biondo's guest on this week's edition of Monday Morning Radio.

[Jen's childhood friend, Sarah Shaw, aka 'Entreprenette' was the featured guest on Monday Morning Radio on March 25, 2013.  Missed Sarah's segment?  You can hear it here now.]

Little Girls Are Big Business: From Securities Law to 'Poppy Drops' Mogul

Little girls can't grow up fast enough and their parents can't keep them little long enough. It's an age-old conundrum. 

So Shelly Coffman, who worked in securities laws for an investment bank, sought out a happy medium for her own daughter who wanted to wear pierced earrings just like the Big Girls do.  Shelly invented Poppy Drops, a temporary tattoo that lets little girls enjoy all the fun of earrings without the complications and responsibility of permanent piercing.

Poppy Drops has grown into a mega retail success, selling removable earrings and tattoos across the country both online and at an impressive and growing number of retail outlets. 

On this week's Monday Morning Radio, Shelly shares the story behind her unexpected kid-hit.  As you'll hear, little girls are big business, especially because parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles seem to have almost no self-control when it comes to doting on them.

Shelly is interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart and wealth management expert David Biondo.  Dean and David are co-hosts of the weekly Business Unconventional radio news magazine broadcast on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.
