I had the chance to screen the first episode of Oxygen Network’s newest show, ‘Quit Your Day Job‘ and I am HOOKED. I’ve been a digital hustler for over 10 years now – paving my own path and making up my career as I go. That’s no secret. Every morning, I wake up wondering how I’m going to pay my bills that week. It’s daunting. It keeps me hungry. And this new show really spoke to me.
I saw something in the men and women entrepreneurs that was very familiar… the endless thirst for more.
I am 100% obsessed with ‘Quit Your Day Job’. Not only because we will get to see inside the mind of the budding entrepreneur… but because we will get to spend time with 4 AMAZING judges throughout the whole season!
- Randi Zuckerberg: @RANDIZUCKERBERG
- Ido Leffler: @IDOLEFFLER
- Sarah Prevette: @SARAHPREVETTE
- Lauren Maillian: @LAURENMAILLIAN
I had the chance to sit down with a few of the judges thanks to SheKnows and Oxygen last night in NYC for a panel and I left completely inspired. LIKE BORDERLINE MANIC.

Here’s the trailer! Set your alarms and I will see you on the 30th!
Oxygen’s eight-episode series “Quit Your Day Job” features aspiring millennial entrepreneurs who receive the life-changing opportunity to pitch themselves and their innovative ideas to the angel financiers. The investment club will use their business expertise, industry knowledge, and creative vision to determine which up-and-coming products have the potential to be the next big thing. The investors will provide on-site, hands-on mentoring to the young professionals, who must prove they have what it takes to turn their concept into a viable business.
In each hour-long episode, the investors surprise everyday entrepreneurs in person to see if they really have the drive, ambition, and commitment to take their products to the next level. Based on the experts’ observations and feedback, two start-ups with the most potential advance to the final round, where they are put through a field test to convince the investors that they are worthy of their financial backing and mentorship. After intense deliberations, the investors reveal if one, both, or neither of the prospective businesses will receive a commitment of funds. The caveat: All four investors must unanimously agree in order for a business to receive their venture capital. This high-stakes series proves that you don’t need an MBA to have a good idea . . . you need passion, hard work, and the drive to do whatever it takes to succeed.
