Melissa Bernstein is best known for co-founding Melissa & Doug, one of the most popular toy brands ever, currently valued at more than $1 billion. She is now onto her second entrepreneurship journey with the launch of LifeLines, a new company (and new book!) all about mindset and mental health. In today’s episode, she’s here to teach us about how to find the right co-founder (her husband Doug is her business partner), how to deal with copycat brands, and how to better navigate the intense emotions that come with such a demanding career. She also describes her experience with existential depression and why you should never feel guilt for choosing both family and career.
