Carla Hall has a mantra: “Say yes. Adventure follows, then growth.” Taking risks is how she became a world-renowned chef (two-time Top Chef Finalist) and television personality (Netflix’s Crazy Delicious, Good Morning America). All along the way, she’s had to deal with people saying “No" to her—a lot. And she’s not the only one.
On SAY YES!, Carla connects with people who've found success through adversity. In each conversation, her guests talk about how they overcame their own challenges, and how they keep going...even when it seems impossible. Because nobody’s life path is a straight line, and we can all learn from one another’s experiences.
Sometimes, you just have to shrug and say “why not?” to try out a new direction in life. YouTube star and makeup artist Jackie Aina had a couple detours in life - joining the military, moving to Hawaii - before she really hit her stride sharing her makeup videos online. But as she tells Carla, all that discipline and hard work proved that she could do anything she put her mind to. Jackie shares how tricky it is to navigate social media, and why it’s important to push the beauty industry to be racially inclusive. This week’s ingredient: try out a new look, not for anyone else, but for yourself!
