I've had the opportunity to connect with and learn from executives of major brands at MediaPost's Insider Summits. In the process I've discovered some truly impressive women -- not only for the work they do, but their stories behind the scenes.

In this episode of Brand Insider: BTS, Tiffany talks about her new found confidence, reevaluating her priorities, and her short-lived career as a pop star...look out Britney Spears! You can watch the entire conversation here:
