You know Refinery29. How could you not? The women-centric digital media brand garners around 25 million impressions per month and doubles its audience each year. Co-founder and Global Editor-in-Chief, Christene Barberich, is the woman behind that growth. So how did she get there? Funny you should ask. Oh Boy host Jay Buim did, too!

Christene likes a good challenge. The first of her family to attend and graduate college, Christene began sending her resume out to publications as a sophomore. She jumped at an opportunity to temp at the New Yorker and ultimately worked her way through the industry to the helm of one of America’s fastest growing companies.

An editor at heart, Christene shares some of the best advice I’ve heard for both burgeoning editors and ambitious young folks at large. Take a listen, take notes and enjoy.
