Skimm'd from The Couch

theSkimm's co-founders and co-CEOs, Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg, started their company from a couch. Now they’re bringing it back to one, and inviting powerful female leaders to sit down and chat about everything from celebrating career wins to the worst advice they've ever received. It’s an inside look at what it’s really like on the road to success. No BS, no sugarcoating.
