Pre-order The Restart Roadmap: Rewire and Reset Your Career TODAY!


In this week’s episode, former Miss Kentucky, reality TV star, author, influencer, and wildly successful entrepreneur Mallory Ervin shares her experience growing up on a farm in western Kentucky surrounded by her family’s business in the telecom industry and her being exposed to the entrepreneurial hustle from a young age. She talks about the advantages she had in life because of her father’s intention to instill money management skills in her and her siblings. Mallory’s life changed forever the second she decided to compete on stage in the state pageant. So how did a self-proclaimed tom-boy growing up ended up competing for and WINNING Miss Kentucky? You might be surprised that the role is decent paying and as Miss Kentucky, Mallory was employed by the Department of Agriculture. She shares all the financial benefits associated with the role, as well as the expenses. She went on to compete for Miss America and was a runner-up. Mallory talks about what the organization looks for and how she differentiated herself from her competition. Guess who one of her judges was. (hint: we’ve had her on the show!) As soon as she walked off the Miss America stage, she was cast for reality TV. In the episode, Mallory opens up about her prescription drug problem that was driven by her ambition after coming off of Miss America and how she overcame it. Despite losing the All Star season of Amazing Race by just 90 seconds in the last episode, Mallory and her father have crazy stories of their travels and won various prizes along the way. Leaving reality TV, Mallory taught herself how to leverage the world of social media to have a successful career. Most merchandise businesses don’t execute well and struggle to enjoy competitive margins. Mallory was able to grow a multi-million business for which she sells a million dollars worth of merchandise in a matter of minutes. How exactly does she do that? How can you do that? Listen to find out along with endless life-changing advice in another episode that you cannot afford to miss.
