Sallee Poinsette-Nash is a 6’2 Londoner and entrepreneur and no, she does not play basketball.

Sallee made 2016 her Tall Year after a pivotal moment, when her high-profile client gave her just 2 hours to grieve for her gorgeous pooch before having to present.

That was the final straw. Sallee no longer wanted to pursue her career in the fast-paced world of brand advising and business troubleshooting to high-profile clients.

So in 2016, Sallee decided to say yes to all things tall, which led to her creating Tall Guides: an online magazine, backed by a global community of like-heighted women.

Tall Guides has been growing from strength to strength over the last year and Sallee was recently voted one of the most important start-up influencers in London.

Since hearing Sallee talk at Escape The City, she has been a role model for me since the early beginnings of Lilly Wild.

So when I decided to create a podcast series, I knew I wanted to get Sallee on the show.

We met in Fleet Street to record the interview, only to discover that we actually live a tube stop away from each other in West London!

In the background you can hear the energy of central London, which only adds to the exciting and enlightening conversation we had together.

So without further ado, let me introduce to you Sallee Poinsette-Nash and our conversation. I only hope you enjoy the episode, as much as I enjoyed creating it 🙂

I first met Sallee at Escape The City, after she gave an inspiring and motivating talk on the beginnings of Tall Guides and her journey thus far.

Sallee was bursting with vibrant energy, dazzling with authenticity and incredible levels of kindness – she is someone who is aligned with her true self, having learnt to love her difference.

In this episode Sallee is courageous and authentic, sharing her highs and lows of her Tall journey thus far.

“I really enjoyed listening to Sallee’s journey – how she got to where she is today having created Tall Guides magazine as part of her ‘tall year’ journey.

Sharing her vulnerability, her challenges, and what she is passionate about – ‘people and connections’, and how to build a community through authenticity and trust.

Sallee makes it seem easy to share, but sharing and revealing is brave, and it is this sharing of herself that has enabled Sallee to achieve the great things she has achieved and will go on to achieve.

Thank you for your inspiration!”
