After graduating from Tulane College in New Orleans, I moved to Nashville to work at a expertise company within the nation music business, then moved to Los Angeles to work within the leisure business. Proper earlier than the pandemic hit, I took a job working for Michael Bosstick which in the end led me to working for Lauryn at The Skinny Confidential.

It has been so cool attending to see all the totally different sides of their companies — I actually do study one thing new on daily basis from them. My character sort is an ISFJ-T —  I’m fiercely loyal, love serving to others, and although I like to hangout with household/pals, I should be alone to recharge. I presently stay with my boyfriend and hopefully can persuade him to get a pug/frenchie/bulldog — I like any canines with a squishy face. 

What’s a ‘day within the life’ for you?

PM: I attempt to get up on the sooner facet between 5-5:30am (though most days I don’t get away from bed till like 5:45am). I wish to get a exercise in earlier than the health club will get crowded. I like to run however I additionally like MWH pilates and Chloe Ting HIIT exercises. Then I bathe & get modified — I attempt to placed on cute outfits on daily basis – it makes me really feel extra put collectively and able to tackle the day.

I’ve lately converted from ingesting espresso to having a matcha latte, so I’ll normally make that and skim from Ryan Vacation’s The Each day Stoic or compensate for private emails and information earlier than leaping into work.

As Katie stated in her put up, no two days are the identical. I do every little thing from model partnerships, to researching and scheduling company for the podcast, to working with the crew on product and co-brand advertising & launch methods, and every little thing in between! Issues are normally persistently busy, however I attempt to keep in mind to stand up and stroll round all through the day — I’m in determined want of a treadmill or strolling pad to go below my desk.

I’m extraordinarily type-A so all of my meals are prepped forward of time so I can simply pull them out with out having to consider it or cook dinner something through the day. As a result of I earn a living from home, I strive my finest to place all of my work associated issues away on the finish of the day & take a while away from screens. At evening I normally learn or journal and I am going to mattress SUPER early — like I’m in mattress at 8:30 or 9pm, typically even earlier.

If somebody needs to work with an influencer, how do you suggest they go about it?

PM: One thing I’ve realized from Michael & Lauryn (try their episode with Robert Greene & Ryan Vacation on mentors) is that it is advisable to method the state of affairs by providing one thing. In case you have an influencer you’re dying to work for, analysis and study as a lot as you’ll be able to about them and the business, and discover methods the place you’ll be able to add worth to their crew. Then, attain out each approach you’ll be able to — ship chilly emails — no matter it takes. 

What’s it like working with an influencer? Give us a behind-the-scenes breakdown!

PM: It’s thrilling being on this facet of it! I adopted TSC for some time, by no means imagining I’d find yourself working for Lauryn, and it’s actually cool to see the center and soul that goes into creating each single factor.

I’m additionally very a lot on the enterprise facet of issues, so it’s actually enjoyable attending to work with creatives — I’m continually in awe of what they provide you with from packaging, to graphics, to why we use this as an alternative of that when creating merchandise…each single tiny element has been appeared over and chosen rigorously. It’s a distinct a part of your mind and I really feel like I get to develop it increasingly every day as I study from our crew. 

What’s your favourite life hack?

PM: WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN. I all the time have pen & paper close by and the notes part on my cellphone is horrifying. I write each single factor down. I’m continually doing 100 issues directly (actually engaged on single-tasking however it’s laborious!) and I do know myself effectively sufficient to know I cannot keep in mind each element, so I write each thought down. It has saved me numerous instances.

Give us all of your time administration ideas!

PM: I plan forward for every little thing. Having the ability to anticipate issues that may come up and addressing them forward of time has actually helped me get forward in my private {and professional} life. I meal prep, I attempt to plan out my errands, and many others. in order that I’m utilizing my time and power properly and being as environment friendly and productive as potential.

I’ve bizarre OCD tendencies that go together with this — I’ve programs in place for cooking, cleansing, organizing, and many others., that enable me to multi-task and get essentially the most performed within the shortest period of time….my mind works in bizarre methods! I additionally use a calendar for every little thing. I even have ongoing to do lists that I’ll most likely simply retaining including to till I die. I’m very strict with my group & timing routines — I envy people who find themselves extra versatile.

I grew up taking part in squash (the game) — my mother was my highschool coach and she or he would all the time present as much as our matches in like 6 inch stilettos. She is unquestionably essentially the most trendy coach I’ve had.

I lived in Paris (within the seventeenth arrondissement).

What’s your favourite wholesome snack?

What’s your favourite magnificence product & why?

PM: Sunscreen! My dad is a mohs (pores and skin most cancers) surgeon and I’ve had amelanotic melanoma, so I’m VERY strict with sunscreen. I’ve tried all of them. Proper now, I like the La Roche-Posay tinted sunscreen for my face, and Supergoop for my physique.

I’ll use something that’s accessible although. I additionally love Alastin HydraTint ProMineral as a result of it feels such as you’re placing protection on, however it’s actually gentle and has SPF in it. Additionally I’m naturally oily, and these things goes on matte for me. I used to make enjoyable of my dad for carrying solar safety clothes (he wears lengthy UPF pants, lengthy sleeve UPF shirt, and an insanely massive wide-brimmed hat when he’s open air along with sunscreen), however now I put on it as effectively.

I like Lily Pulitzer, Coolibar, Mott50, and Solumbra. I’d like to design my very own UPF clothes sooner or later as effectively. Take this as a pleasant reminder to go get your pores and skin checked – pores and skin most cancers is the commonest most cancers of all. I’m honest and used to go each 6 months, however after the most cancers prognosis, I went each 8-10 weeks, and now being 2 years out, I’m again to going each 4-6 months.

I don’t have an intricate skincare routine — I normally simply wash my face (prescription sulfur wash within the morning, Laniege Multi-Deep Clear Cleanser or Tula Cult Cleanser at evening), ice roll with THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL HOT MESS ICE ROLLER (ps — guys love this too!) put sunscreen on, and a few mascara (typically eyeliner too). My lashes are BLONDE so I’ve to have one thing there or I seem like Schmiegal from Lord of the Rings.
