New York Said Studio

Photography by Adrian Octavius Walker



Today’s guest on the show is entrepreneur and strategist Holley Murchison.

We met up in Grind, a co-working space in not too far from 34th street and talked about growing up in Harlem, yoga, Lisbon, life in the hood, gambling, debate tournaments, her grade changing scandal, engaging with high-end clients, how to fire someone, shifting cultures, volunteering, the keys to creating good stuff, active listening, speaking your truth and much much more.

That’s enough intro for one show, please enjoy.
