Danielle: We're super excited today to be sitting down and chatting with the amazing Mia Klitsas-Marcocci, from Moxie Feminine Hygiene products and The Brand Maketh. As a woman, I know you struggled with, over the years as well, that body confidence in yourself. And how did you find coming into, you know, your adult time and coming in as a business woman and walking into a room sometimes where you're the only female sitting in that board room?
Mia: Yeah, yeah. And actually that was really tough. I had a really tough time then. You know, I was young, I was a woman and I literally have people telling me to my face like, oh, you're too young to have an opinion, you're just a young girl. Someone told me once that, you know you're the expert on you. So when you're walking into a room and you're telling your story, people are there because they're there to listen to you. And so whether I'm going into a meeting or you know, speaking in front of a thousand young women at school or whatever.
Mia: I'm like, hang on, I'm here to talk about me. They don't know about me.
Mia: I know about me.
Mia: This is fine, I've got this.
Mia: And so I think that sort of, just you know, reminding yourself that... you're the expert on you.
Danielle: So in having said that, and you know, obviously what Moxie looks after and their product range, what's your favourite body part?
Mia: Oh God. I mean, look, my brain does all the heavy lifting. If you don't notice. Yeah, I mean, you know, brain.
Mia: The brain has got me here and it's, look, the brain has got me into some trouble as well.
Danielle: One word you'd use to describe yourself?
Danielle: Your husband's sitting here. What's the word he'd used?
Mia: Well, I would hope that he would want to stay married, so I'd hope that he'd say something nice.
Danielle: Would you describe yourself as a brief, a boyleg or g string girl? Being the fact that we have similar categories to work with, we'll focus on the same region.
Mia: I am, believe it or not, I am the g string girl. Which my friends are like, what? Really?
Danielle: No, I thought you would be g string or (boyleg) short. I thought you were going to be.
Mia: Yeah. Well, it depends on what day it is. It depends what's happening, what I'm wearing, but mostly day to day, I'm a pants wearer.
Mia: I always wear pants. That's what my husband would say, wears the pants.
