About our Featured Guest
Trophy Wife Wines, the smart and sexy wine company founded by Lexington, Kentucky local Gwen Ogle, is now available in Kentucky. Trophy Wife Wine is produced and bottled in Lodi, “the wine-grape capital of California”. Liquor Barn plans to carry the full line, which includes Chardonnay, Sweet White Wine, Pinot Noir and Big Red Blend.

Gwen Ogle conceptualized Trophy Wife Wines after working as a wine territory manager in the beverage industry, where she learned that many people still consider wine intimidating and complicated.

“I created Trophy Wife Wines to simplify the act of purchasing and drinking wine,” says Ogle. “I want people to feel that wine can be – should be – something simple to share with family and friends. The philosophy behind Trophy Wife Wines is all about having fun.”

The Trophy Wife artwork, created by Lexington, KY native Betsy May, plays a big part in the playful message. The labels are vibrant, cartoon depictions of fabulous women, each as unique as the varietal they represent. The Sweet White Wine, for example, showcases a sassy blond in a bright pink dress, sipping a glass of white wine while flashing a diamond ring.

The slogan: “Being fabulous is exhausting, relax with a glass of Trophy Wife Wines” adds to the overall branding message.

“Women are amazing,” says Ogle. “We can be mothers, workers and wives, all while looking good and feeling fabulous. I want Trophy Wife Wines to honor these women, while giving them the confidence to walk into a wine store and feel good about their selection.”

What does it mean to hustle?

September 4, 2013

I’m a hustler baby… sure we know all of us like to throw around the word hustle, but what does it really mean?

When I think of hustle and young, female entrepreneurs I think of a short list of women that know what they want and stop at nothing to get it. With that being said– what they want is not necessarily diamonds or money. Instead it’s changing lives for the better. Of course, the money and diamonds are not bad after products of their hard work.

To celebrate and reinforce the best entrepreneurial best practices of hustle, or ‘shipping’ we’ll be chatting with Vasavi Kumar, the queen of hustle, on #YFEchat live tomorrow night. She’ll be live with us at 6p/9e on YFElive.com for 30 minutes via video.

vasavi kumar

Show up live on YFElive.com to meet your peers. Once you show up, be sure to introduce yourself on the chat and check in on Twitter using the hashtag #YFEchat. Stacey Harris will be on our @YFEntrepreneur handle. Give her a shout out!

Don’t worry about looking your best- you won’t be on video. In fact, grab a glass of wine, a cocktail, or a cup of tea and cozy up to your screen for some online networking without the fuss.

Ever wanted to turn to your friend at an event to add your two cents to what the speaker was saying? That’s what we aim to do at our live webcasts- networking over a shared experience. Learning something from the speaker, but possibly more important is the discussion that happens around the points discussed.

Hope to see you tomorrow. Here’s to hustling!

PS. This is Vasavi’s second time on the show (I don’t believe we’ve had anyone on for a second time!). Check out her past episode with us here:

The concept of Draper University is so cool. Referred to as “the new cutting edge school for entrepreneurs” this part boarding school, part incubator looks like an out of this world experience. The school is founded by venture capitalist Tim Draper, who is often referred to in the press as a fun loving and eccentric entrepreneur. YFE is thrilled to welcome Draper University’s COO Carol Lo onto #YFEchat LIVE tonight at 6p/9e to talk about what this new school is, what happens there, why a young woman would want to attend, and where the future of education is going.

When I first visited DraperUniversity.com and watched their home page video I thought “this is a real life ‘Accepted’ (starring Justin Long, back in 2006).” Don’t know what I’m talking about? Then watch the following trailer and then watch the Draper University reel below.

While Draper University is far from the South Harmon, Justin Long started, it still has a similar foundation in that education and the college experience don’t necessarily have to come in a “start when you’re 18, stay for four year, pay $60,000″ package.

Why show up on Thursday at 6pm Pacfic/9pm Eastern on YFElive.com to watch the live stream and participate in the chat? Here are 7 reasons:

  1. Any time pop culture mixes with entrepreneurship is a good time!
  2. Meet other YFEs on the chat for some networking and fun.
  3. To imagine doing something crazy different: find out more about Draper University, what they do, and how you could attend.
  4. Find out who Tim Draper is and why he started Draper University.
  5. Have an open discussion on whether or not traditional undergrad/graduate education is necessary as an entrepreneur.
  6. Find out what’s going on at YFE.
  7. Get featured on the live stream by tweeting, sharing your Instagrams, and Touting under #YFEchat.

This is going to be a fun show! Help us spread the word by clicking to tweet:
