Today is what I would call a literal treat, that's because I got to talk to the Queen of Treats. Today, I got to speak with Orla Mitchell, who is the President of Gums and Mints at Mars Wrigley Confectionery, a subsidiary of Mars Incorporated. She leads the strategic development and delivery of some of the world's most beloved and delicious brands, like Extra, Orbit, Doublemint, 5 Gum, Juicy Fruit, and Eclipse, to Altoids and Lifesavers -- I mean basically every brand you ever heard of, it's kind of awesome. One of the things that I love about Orla is just how understated she is. She's done the most incredible work and she is humble about it. I think when you listen to her you're just going to be so inspired and ready to take on the world as a social lady. Take a listen!

Hey guys. Today is a true Social Ladies interview because I get to talk to Melissa Musgrove, who is the Vice President and Head of Social Media at Regions Bank. What I'm most impressed by, aside from Melissa's passion and excitement around social media, is her ability to add quantifiable results to her social media efforts. You know, there's a lot of the soft stuff -- a lot of the humanization of brands, a lot of the story telling -- but there's a lot around metrics and showing the value of a customer on social media. Take a listen!
