How Mira Kaddoura of Red & Co., Owns It

Hi and welcome to the OWN IT podcast, where we celebrate the growing number of (women and non-binary) ad agency owners and talk about buying out of the boys’ club of advertising, one agency at a time.  I’m Christy Hiler, owner of Cornett and today I’m talking to Mira Kaddoura, the amazing and inspiring owner of Red & Co. Mira not only has the unique perspective of coming to America as an immigrant from the Arab world, but operating an agency with offices globally. We talk about the differences in how women work and are received both in and outside of the U.S.  Mira also has blazed her path to ownership through the wilderness of freelancing – a path many women follow to ownership.  Thanks for listening to this episode of OWN IT with Mira Kaddoura of Red & Co.
