Since taking on the role of editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan two years ago, Joanna Coles has been busy growing (and revolutionizing) the glossy and its digital counterpart. Not only has she increased magazine subscriptions and online traffic numbers; she's introduced political coverage to both publishing platforms, accepted the magazine's first ASME award, and (as if that weren't enough) has taken on the additional title of editorial director at Seventeen magazine. While Coles' extensive list of accomplishments might make it seem like she spends her days behind a desk at Hearst Tower, the reality is quite the contrary: Joanna's out and about and constantly meeting new people. This weekend, she wants to meet YOU.
Fun Fearless Life, Cosmo's first-ever live conference, is taking over Lincoln Center this Saturday and Sunday. The two-day event is jam-packed with wise words from the industry's finest: Listen to #GIRLBOSS Sophia Amoruso's story about how she turned her eBay hobby into a multi-million-dollar business, or learn Amy Cuddy's two-minute trick to nailing your next job interview. Of course, this conference isn't just about work. It's about learning to have fun and live fearlessly in all areas of your day-to-day. You'll practice the power pose in one session and find ways to integrate exercise into your daily routine in the next. LearnVest CEO Alexa Von Tobel will provide tips on how to manage your money, Kelly Osbourne will discuss the importance of loving your body, and our very own fearless leader Christene Barberich will be on-site to talk about building Refinery29 from the ground up.
