Look, sex is an important part of life. For men, it seems that's a given. But for too long, women have been told their sexual health doesn't matter. After blazing a trail in the men's sexual health industry, Cindy Eckert decided this inequality wasn't fair. She founded Sprout Pharmaceuticals and helped design the first drug approved to enhance female libido. Surprisingly (or not), it was a massive success. We talk about why she entered the sexual health industry and what she's doing to even the playing field for female entrepreneurs. In This Conversation We Cover:  [02:54] Cindy Eckert before she stepped into her “pinkness” [07:36] The common thread between women disruptors [11:00] Why Cindy co-founded a company dedicated to men's sexual health [16:06] The neglect of women's sexual health [23:10] Why our sexual desire fades over time [27:48] Losing her company and taking it back again [40:06] The importance of breaking bread together as a company Resources: https://thepinkceiling.com/ (thepinkceiling.com) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cindypinkceo/?hl=en (@cindypinkceo) LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/cindy-eckert (linkedin.com/in/cindy-eckert) Twitter: https://twitter.com/cindypinkceo (@cindypinkceo) Text "Dream Life" to 310- 388-9724 to get our FREE dream life course Mastermind: https://workhardplayhardpodcast.com/mastermind/ (workhardplayhardpodcast.com/mastermind) Connect with Rob on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/robmurgatroyd/ (@robmurgatroyd) Connect with Kim on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/kimmurgatroyd/ (@kimmurgatroyd) To learn more, and for the complete show notes, visit: https://workhardplayhardpodcast.com/ (workhardplayhardpodcast.com) Work Hard Play Hard is a production of http://crate.media (Crate Media)

She's sold two businesses for more than $1.5 billion, so she knows a thing or two about building things from the ground up and making money in the process. Now, with her work in The Pinkubator, she helps women break barriers by investing in women founders to level the playing field and shatter the glass ceiling for good. We cover everything from building a billion dollar business to women's sexual health (and everything in between). You're going to want to hear this conversation.   Question Highlights: How did your entrepreneurial journey get started? How did you get interested in women's pleasure? What were the belief systems you had to break and unlearn to become the woman you are today? What are some of the bad habits you've had to break along the way? What skills do women need to build to be successful in business?   Guest Bio: A self-made serial entrepreneur and vocal advocate for women, Cindy defies convention in her industry, in her companies, in her outcomes. Her work today, in The Pinkubator, continues to break barriers by investing in and mentoring other women to get to her same outcomes. She's on a mission to make women really rich. You cannot miss Cindy. Everything she touches turns to PINK! Over a distinguished 25-year career in healthcare, in only the last ten years, she has built and sold two businesses for more than $1.5B. First Slate Pharmaceuticals (which redefined long acting testosterone treatment for men), then Sprout Pharmaceuticals (which broke through with the first ever FDA-approved drug for low sexual desire in women – dubbed “female Viagra” by the media). After selling the company for $1 billion in 2015, she successfully fought to get the drug back and launch it on her own terms. Cindy has made waves and her own success, creating mission driven companies that deliver big. Her results have become widely covered business success stories featured in major media outlets. She is most proud of helping others take command of their lives. The profoundly positive impact those companies have made for people is what keeps her coming back for more.

IT'S TIME TO “THINK PINK” ON THIS WEEK'S EPISODE! Cindy Eckert is a DEAR FRIEND, and has become an important ANGEL INVESTOR, SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR, WOMEN'S HEALTH ADVOCATE, AND A VISIONARY HEALTH TECH CEO. Whether you're a man or a woman, if you've ever had even the faintest glimmer of walking away from your current job and starting your own company, you're going to absolutely LOVE Cindy Eckert's story and what you can LEARN from her. You're all familiar with what Viagra does for men, but I'll bet not too many of you know Cindy is the one who got FDA approval for Addyi, the first drug designed to enhance female libido. After FDA approval, she sold her company, Sprout Pharmaceuticals, to Valeant for a cool $1 BILLION. It wasn't her first company sale either, having previously sold another start-up for $500 MILLION. Here's the fascinating part of Cindy's story. As part of a lawsuit settlement against Valeant, she reacquired Sprout and the rights to Addyi for next to nothing after Valeant's stock collapsed by 80% due to insider trading and price manipulation allegations. People like Cindy can't sit still for very long. So, she launched a “PINKUBATOR” and a VC/consulting firm called the PINK CEILING as a way of leveling the start-up and entrepreneurial environment for women. Cindy has a wealth of KNOWLEDGE and EXPERIENCE you're going to want to tap into. In our ENERGETIC interview, Cindy and I talk quite a bit about the DNA required to be an entrepreneur, how to overcome INEVITABLE SETBACKS, and the MINDSET you need to have in a start-up company, Most important of all, Cindy stresses that to be successful as an entrepreneur, everyone in your company has to have “SKIN IN THE GAME.” We also get into the need for establishing the right CORPORATE CULTURE and why treating customers like GOLD is one of the foundational keys to SUCCESS. If you're an owner, CEO, or you have management responsibilities where you work, Cindy's INSIGHTS on finding, hiring, and managing people is something you must hear. Those of you who are ENTREPRENEURS searching for more CAPITAL for your business need to pay particular attention to what Cindy looks for when she's investing in someone's business. Cindy may be well known for the PINK outfits she wears every day, but her advice is TRUE BLUE, and you owe it to yourself to hear what she has to say. Be sure to grab pen and a notepad and take a lot of notes for this one.

Today on Work In Progress, Sophia is joined by Cindy Eckert (@cindypinkceo)!! Cindy is a serial-entrepreneur and highly vocal advocate for women, specifically in the areas of business and health. Over her impressive 24-year career in healthcare, Cindy created and sold two innovative pharmaceutical companies, Slate Pharmaceuticals and Sprout Pharmaceuticals. At Sprout, she forged a new path in women’s healthcare by creating Addyi, the first ever FDA approved drug for low sexual desire in women. After selling it for $1B only to see it shelved, she fought tooth and nail to get it back and make sure that it was made available for women against all odds.  She now mentors and invests in entrepreneurs with ground-breaking ideas through her investment fund, The Pink Ceiling. This “pinkubator” helps women do what Cindy has already done herself: achieve big success, take command in male dominated industries, and truly change the world.    On today’s episode of Work in Progress, Sophia and Cindy discuss moving around as a kid, the importance of individuality in the workplace, and how the best way to change a problematic industry is to change it from within. They also explore the social conditioning of women around the subject of sexual pleasure, and why female sexual health is largely overlooked. This episode is about advocating for ourselves as women and demanding better.

Justin Schenck is the host of the top rated podcast the Growth Now Movement and founder of Growth Now, LLC which is a full service podcast production and coaching company. He has been named a Top 8 Podcaster to follow by Inc. Magazine and chosen as an ‘Icon of Influence’ in the new media space.   What started out as something fun to do in order to connect with top influencers and help one or two people along their journey, has grown to become a podcast that is currently getting played in over 100 countries every single week and ranked in the top 15% in the world.   Justin now works with some of the worlds elite entrepreneurs and business owners like Fabio Viviani, Sarah Centrella, and Cindy Eckert. He is also the host and creator one of the most exciting live events for entrepreneurs and forward thinkers; Growth Now Movement LIVE!   None of this started from greatness. Justin had the deck stacked against him growing up, with difficulties in his family that should have relegated him to being a statistic rather than a success. The inspiration and purpose he found along his journey fuel the message he shares in his work and in this episode today.   As a note, this episode was recorded before the live, in-person event was cancelled due to the Corona Virus. GNM Live was changed to a virtual event.   Key Points from the Episode with Justin Schenck: Justin started a podcast four years ago with his show “The Growth Now Movement,” not knowing quite what it would be, and it has become a movement. He ended up building a podcasting production and consulting business as a result, too. He also ended up creating a live event out of what was coming from the podcast, called Growth Now LIVE. Justin has had the desire to be an entrepreneur for a long time, which is what his podcast has allowed him to be. He adopted the famous saying, “Live happens for me, not to me.” That didn’t come easily when you look at what Justin’s life was like. His mother was addicted to opiates, his father was in jail, and he had a 1.7 GPA. If you look at the statistics, each of his parent’s situation meant he had a 50% chance of being an addict or going to jail himself. He chose not to live that way. He read the book, Who Moved My Cheese, and realized life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. At 19, he was working in a direct sales business, had done well in his role, and started to manage people. This is where the entrepreneurial spark was lit. An employee came to him and said that, while he would have made more money working in fast food, what he learned by working for Justin was worth far more than that. In that moment, Justin realized that he wanted to inspire and guide people full time, and he should pursue making that his life’s work. He put together an event company to do personal development events, and had some success. One over-leveraged event that failed to sell enough tickets to pay for itself ended up killing the business. What he learned in that experience about what he needed to learn still was invaluable to his future success. He also learned that the right response is not to just quit. Justin’s entire life was never just handed to him, so he chose to keep fighting and learn from this failure. The learning was not instant. Right afterward, he called his mother and told her he was quitting. She pointed out that he didn’t fail, but was instead heading in the right direction and needed to keep heading there but with new knowledge. Just because you didn’t get what you wanted out of the current situation does not mean you aren’t headed in the right direction. We talked about his mother’s addiction, and interesting, despite what she was going through, she was still Justin’s rock and there for him through it all, even to her ultimate death at the hands of her addiction. She taught him that our rock bottom moments are the start of so much greatness. It can also be the end for people because you feel like better is impossible. But what actually matters is the choices we make in those moments to make things better for us and the people around us. There is choice and direction all around us. The key is that we have to listen (don’t just hear it, but actually listen and take it in). On the back of his mother’s death, he went on a three month, black-out-drunk bender. He kept going out drinking all night to keep from sitting in the pain, and feeling it. He had a mentor and coach who asked him where he was going one night, and when he said he was going drinking, she told him, “No you’re not. You’re going to sit and you’re going to feel this tonight.” While it was incredibly painful, when he woke up the next day, the weight of the pain was gone. He realized that, when we hit rock bottom, we can go through pain, and we can feel like there’s no way out. But it can end, and it’s up to us to decide when that moment is. He chose growth. He uses the Rule of 1% – he chooses to get 1% better every day, in his relationships, finances, health, etc. He reflects at the end of each day to see where he made progress, and if he didn’t, what he learned from not making it, and what he can do differently. And if he feels that he did nothing in a day, he has compassion for himself and realizes he can still get up the next day and be better. If you focus on 1% each day, you end up with exponential growth in a year. We look at other people, and think, “I want that. I want what they have.” Justin says we need to stop looking at other people because it only makes us feel bad. It’s a waste of time and our potential. What are you cultivating for yourself? Focus on that rather than what the other person is doing. Justin’s events were born of his podcast, and spawned a series of seminars in the early days. As he and his partner were working to launch the podcast, he got the call about his mother, who he dropped everything, drove 7.5 hours, and went to see her before she passed. He promised her he will make her proud and this will not go unnoticed. As the show started, his partner was talking about business, and he was talking about the self-improvement journey and values. The show changed into what it is now, with Justin hosting solo, and went further into this purpose that came from the moment when his mother died. We talked about the pursuit of money or impact, and Justin firmly believes that money is just a reaction to our impact. He said it really well, “I’ll impact a million lives before I have a million dollars.” With that intention, it’s not surprising to see that he’s clearly somewhere around that level of impact given that he’s close to his 300th episode, and gets thousands of listeners to each show he does, meaning there have already been over a million times his show has been taken into someone’s life. We got into the details about the upcoming Growth Now Movement Live, which is happening on September 25-27th. He named a number of seriously impactful people, some of which are doing keynotes, and some are part of panels. This includes people like Nick Santonastasso, Anthony Trucks, Justin Wren, Natalie Jill, Adam Schaeuble and others. None of them is paid to do it, which means they’re all there because of the purpose of it, which is part of why it makes sense to call it a Movement. The big difference with GNM Live is that the speakers are all intertwined in the event and the people, and you see it in the posts people share after the event.

I know this is a bold question… but what if I asked you if you were satisfied with your sex life? You might think, “That’s a little  too personal to be talking about.”  Today’s guest, Cindy Eckert,  is at the forefront of a movement to de-stigmatize this discussion, of sexual vitality, specifically as it relates to low libido. Cindy is the creator of Addyi, a little pink pill to treat women with low or no  sexual desire. It has been labeled by the media as the female viagra.  She fought an uphill battle to get ADDYI approved by the FDA, and sold her company for 1 billion dollars. Through that experience, she got a first-hand lesson of what it meant for women to advocate for each other…. for better health outcomes, for better research for women, and for better business opportunities for women.  Cindy is on  a mission to put women on top.  And that’s what prompted her to launch The Pink Ceiling in 2016… It was her way of helping female-focused businesses with capital as well a s mentorship.  You can’t miss Cindy when she walks into the room. She’s unapologetically pink... from her clothes to her accessories.  I’m excited about today’s show.

In the Pocket Podcast Posse! Lou here, with a little note from the road. I am on my way back from Phoenix Arizona to Los Angeles, California after a 2 day event with Ali Brown. Although that is a very high end event, I am traveling by.. GREYHOUND! I’ve left you a voice message of my Greyhound bustrip to Phoenix and the first day of the event about why I sooo love to take the Greyhound and how I am growing more and more into an and/and state of mind. And business class ánd the Greyhound. That last part is essential for me as a writer and an artist. A little unconventional maybe when the dreams of other Law of Attraction teachers and students may include private jets but it keeps me connected to my HEART’S DESIRES. This is what this podcast is about. How to stay true to YOU and your TRUE DESIRES in the Manifesting Madness. You wíll be triggered. Only all the time. Me too. To be in a room full of 75 amazingly smart women, who are taking the world by storm it is easy to be blown away and think that what you are doing is insignificant and not enough. Just keep coming back to the three steps. 1. Focus. 2. SEARCH for the GOOD only. 3. Zip all the negative thinking and worrying and zap it back to step 1 and 2. For me an event like this is the perfect opportunity to PRACTICE and to question my beliefs. That is all you really need to do. Practice. Choose again, choose again, choose again. When you make sure you are following your HEART’S DESIRES, and not your HEAD’S DESIRES you can’t go wrong. Every time your head starts to take over, zip it, and zap back to the heart. Just after I recorded this voice message for you, Cindy Eckert came to speak at our event. She just sold her pharmaceutical company for 1 billion dollars. She busted through MY BELIEFS about rich people ánd the medical world being greedy and selfish. She is a lighthouse! And I loved how she still drives the same car, still lives in the same house and still wears the same clothes. That is all I needed to zip any prejudice and zap back to number 1 and number 2. Google her. Your mind will be blown. And we were in the room with her. And she was in a room with me. An Artist. A Writer who loves to break down big ideas into bitesize brilliance for your brain. If you look at it that way, we are both in the pharmaceutical business. She created the Pink Pill that changed tremendous amount of lives. I am creating Paper Pills that make you feel like a billion bucks! At least, I do. The same way this cheap Greyhound bus does. Go figure. Listen up here and I’ll fill you in later about the rest. Inwards, thén onwards! Lou P.S. What this episode is really about is that JOY is indeed enough. My flight over to LA was total proof for me. I’ll tell you about it over here: P.P.S.

Cindy Eckert (formally Whitehead) is the founder of a Sprout the first pharmaceutical company to develop Addyi, the first female Viagra. In the mid-2010s, Cindy sold her company to a bigger pharmaceutical company but soon found she made a mistake. The program Pinkbator is searching for women entrepreneurs wanting to improve the lives of women and the world in general. Cindy is very passionate about her mission and the company she built. She takes me on the journey of Slate (her first pharmaceutical company), Sprout, and finally The Pink Ceiling, She tells me about her billion dollar exit and how her purchaser disappointed her in the end. Cindy was so disappointed by her company’s “adopted parents” that she sued for the right to take the company back. I ask her how she managed it and she credits creative deal structuring and a great legal team. She won the case and built The Pink Ceiling, a business incubator that is dedicated to empowering, educating, and giving women entrepreneurs a chance to grab capital opportunities. What you will learn: Why Cindy became an entrepreneur Why she gravitated to pharmaceuticals Cindy’s fascination with women’s sexual health and why it is important. The beginning of Slate and how it led to Sprout. How to “Be the Workhorse.” The qualities Cindy looks for in her team. The danger of having the wrong partner and being selective about investors. Why you should be accountable to investors. The benefits of an awesome legal team. The stipulations Cindy included in her sale agreement when she sold Sprout. How those stipulations helped her win the company back in court. The Pink Ceiling and Cindy’s view of the future. Takeaways: You need to know what you are passionate about and what you want your company to be. Then you need to align your passion and vision with your investors, employees, and eventually potential buyers. Maintaining this alignment makes all the difference with whether you will be pleased with a sale or not.

Cindy Eckert has built and sold two pharmaceutical companies and she's the creator of the Little Pink Pill. Cindy exited that company for more than a billion dollars, and in total has $1.5bn worth of exits, but who's counting? Right? Cindy writes her own rules and defines what it means to be a renegade. The woman is unapologetically true to herself and it's serving her very, very well. Over the last couple of years, Cindy has created and been running The Pink Ceiling, which is the cross between a VC fund, an incubator, and a consulting firm with a focus on women and female entrepreneurs. Cindy was recently quoted in Entrepreneur magazine saying “The injustice I'm fighting with The Pink Ceiling is not only women's limited access to capital, but also their limited access to mentors.” She's also been quoted in Fortune Magazine saying that her investment strategy is to quote "Make other women really f'n rich" end quote.
