Iconic Aussie influencer launches podcast

Sometimes your biggest failures can lead to your greatest successes, this is the inspirational message behind influencer and model turned entrepreneur, Elle Ferguson’s new podcast series, Sliding Doors with Elle Ferguson.

In her podcast, Ferguson speaks to influential people who are at the top of the fashion and beauty industries about their ‘sliding-door moment’, that is, the moment they took a risk or leap of faith that ultimately led to their success.

Creating a safe space for conversation with industry icons like celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin, internationally renowned Australian designer Paul Vasileff, and Marie Claire Australia’s founding editor Jackie Frank, guests share their inspiring journeys.

“Throughout my career in fashion and beauty, I’ve been lucky enough to meet the amazing people behind the world’s biggest fashion brands and celebrities’ most iconic looks,” said Ferguson.

“Every time I met one of these people, they shared their incredible journey to success with me. All of which seemed to start with one sliding door moment, a moment where they decided to go it alone and make a passion their profession.”

“I found these stories so personal and inspirational; I knew a podcast was the only medium I could use to give these stories the time and space they deserved to share them with those out there who are desperately looking for a sign to take the leap and start a new career,” she said.

The Sliding Doors with Elle Ferguson podcast series launches March 31, 2021 for free by downloading the new LiSTNR app, which you can do here.
