“The sky’s the limit when you have your own company.”

— Alessandra Pollina

Three months into her first job out of college, Alessandra Pollina had an epiphany: She didn’t need to spend her 20s paying her dues in a traditional 9-5.

Living in Boston on just $20,000 a year, Alessandra didn’t have much to lose — but had everything to gain — when she walked away from her desk job to make a name for herself in PR. At just 23 years old, Alessandra launched her own company, Pollina PR and Marketing. 

Since then, Alessandra’s business has grown into Quotable Media Company, she’s started a family, and she’s diversified her income through investment properties, giving herself the flexibility to enjoy quality time with her son and husband. 

In this episode of Live & Earn, Alessandra tells us how she had the discipline to become a successful, young entrepreneur and the courage to become a mom at the same time. We also learn about how she found community with other women and millennial founders.


  • Starting a business right out of college
  • Building a client base from nothing 
  • Becoming an entrepreneur and a parent in the same timeframe
  • Feeling lonely as a young, female entrepreneur 
  • Hustling in your 20s and 30s to achieve financial freedom in your 40s and 50s
  • The role of patience in sustaining an entrepreneurial endeavor 
  • The importance of periodically reflecting on your priorities as a business owner and preferences as an individual
