Episode Description

Leslie Osborne-Lewis was a national champion at Santa Clara University, a veteran in the NWSL, and had 62 appearance for the USA Women' Soccer team including the World Cup in 2007. Her journey playing professional soccer gave her the skills and inspiration to not only become a commentator for Fox/CBS soccer events, but also develop into an entrepreneur. Leslie is the co-founder of Sweat Cosmetics, Cosmetics/sun care made by athletes for active women. We break down the business of sweat cosmetics and the conviction it takes to start a company.

From harnessing the ability to speak in front of millions on TV, to securing the right chemist to curate cosmetic ingredients for athletic performance, Leslie’s versatility is inspiring and the reason why highlighting our favorite athletes journeys is so important.
