Where we come from has everything to do with who we are. And that’s the phenomenon we’ll explore in season 2 of In Progress, as host Aurora James, founder of Brother Vellies, takes listeners on a candid, intimate journey with standout entrepreneurs and thought leaders. Luminaries like Melanie Elturk, Patty Rodriguez, Anine Bing explore how their origin stories and formative cultural experiences have shaped and continue to shape their careers—for better or worse. Presented in partnership with TUMI, In Progress offers up an inspirational and actionable roadmap to owning our personal narratives and living fully in our present selves.
