This shouldn’t come as a surprise to you, but I have a day job. At Cornett. It’s an ad agency. And I love it there.

What may come as a surprise to you is Christy Hiler, the owner at Cornett, is very rare in the ad business. And by that, I mean less than one percent of all advertising agency owners are women. Read that one more time.

Own It – The new podcast from Cornett’s Christy Hiler

Yeah … I know?!

Today, Christy is launching an industry change agent movement called Own It. The effort is calling on women who own all or most of ad agencies to come together to join a community of leaders to discuss, dissect and defeat the problem. Interested women or non-binary owners can sign up to be a part of conversations, mentorship and more, at

Participants may also be invited to help discuss solutions to the problem on Christy’s new podcast, also called Own It. Today on a special edition of Winfluence, we present a mini-version of the premier episode of the show. The 10-minute edit features Hiler interviewing Jean Freeman, the principal and owner at Zambezi, the largest female-owned advertising agency in the U.S.

And for those of you who are interest in knowing, I produce the show for Christy. It is also the newest entry in the Marketing Podcast Network.
