We had the good fortune of connecting with Ally Case and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ally, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I believe that risks are essential for any business. The greater the risk, the greater the chance of the highest return. Risk taking often sprouts from trying something new and different. If you’re not trying something new or different, are you just following in someone else’s path? Risk takers are thought leaders.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m a creator at heart and I like to express my creativity through several different mediums. I’m a flight attendant, publicist, and social strategist by trade while a content creator and startup entrepreneur (coming soon!) by passion. I find so much joy in expressing creativity through each of my professions and ventures. Whether I’m exemplifying my creative expression through a pitch, a design, a strategy — each day that I get to work on what I’m good at and what I’m passionate about, I feel like the luckiest person in the world. I believe that any position or venture can be creative. Yes, even being a flight attendant. Especially when a major perk of your job is to travel the world for free 😉 You have to get very creative with itineraries in quick 14 hour blocked layover times! Lol. I grew up with an unlimited amount of support but a very limited amount of capital. I found that resources and opportunity could be anywhere, sometimes you just had to create them for yourself. I spent countless hours teaching myself skills in industries and positions that interested me. As I went on this journey, I found myself to be passionate about several things. The one thing each of them had in common? Creation. I’m proud of myself for being where I am today. Since I was little, it’s always been my goal to be able to do what I love every day and make a positive impact on other people’s lives. As I progress throughout my life, I hope that the more I create, the more I can serve others. This is especially important to me via my latest venture coming mid 2021 🙂

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If a best friend was visiting town and I wanted to show them the best time ever, we’d go hiking at a new place every day, eat at all the best vegan restaurants, drive Mulholland at night to see the LA city lights, and of course visit all the LA touristy must-sees (for first timers). We’d hang in coffee shops along Ventura and shop along Melrose. We’d pop in and out of events and end the nights with some extra socialization meeting friends for happy hours. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
-My family for their endless support and like-minded urge for creativity

-Endless books and podcasts available to us by some of the greatest minds in the world. Many of these authors and podcast hosts/guests serve as my greatest mentors. (Simon Sinek – Start With Why, You’re a Badass at Making Money – Jen Sincero, Superwomen Podcast by Rebecca Minkoff, any interviews with Mark Cuban/Sara Blakely/small and large biz founders). These are just a few mediums that have contributed to my positive outlook on life and business.
