Curating Curiosity

Curating Curiosity

“I have a newfound passion for curiosity.”


– KiKi L’Italien  


KiKi L’Italien is a powerhouse. If you couldn’t tell by her amazing presence and bold lipstick, then you’d definitely understand who she is when she calls herself the “Oprah of the Association industry”  and the curator of the curious. KiKi is CEO of the digital marketing agency, Amplified Growth, and founder/owner of Association Chat, which is a community for association members.  


This week, we discuss how she turned her hobby into a business, why weird is better, and reframing what generosity means. We also talk about the tactics KiKi used to exercise her curiosity and you get to hear her seriously gush about her daughter, Margot, at the end.


What makes YOU curious? Watch to find out KiKi's answer.



We even find KiKi’s personal brand during this episode – and in case you didn’t already know: KiKi is larger than life. She loves music, is a runner, likes to cook, is curious, generous, and a very thoughtful human.



To finish things off, here’s Margaux featured on her YouTube channel Gøgøs cørner_/goals. Here she is giving tips on interview for YouTubers. I can totally see why KiKi gushed!

Building a Legacy Through Storytelling

Building a Legacy Through Storytelling

“The oral storytelling of our family is very rich.” – Louise


The bond between a mother and a daughter is a powerful bond. Especially in a big family filled with men.


In our final episode of this HERadventures series, Mary & I got a chance to sit in Baltimore with powerful mother-daughter duo, Louise and Paula. Louise is a mother of five children, is an attorney mediator, and the co-author of Being Relational: The Seven Ways to Quality Interaction and Lasting Change with her husband, William Senft. Her daughter, Paula grew up listening to her grandma sharing stories and is currently Associate Director of Admission at Friends School of Baltimore.



The stories of how the previous generations have influenced both women is astounding. Growing up in a sea of men has brought Louise and Paula closer – and allowed them to create a girl-gang within their own family – and made them stronger women together. It’s beautiful to listen to the emphasis they place on making sure their grandparents’ stories make it to the next generation and the work they do to keep their family’s history alive. Listen in to get inspired to start collecting your own family’s stories.
