Today's guest is a lady who has been on a bit of a journey in her professional life, to find the thing that she loves doing.
Now known as a marketing strategy consultant, professional speaker, and frequent writer to the Harvard Business Review, TIME, Entrepreneur, and the World Economic Forum blog, it seems from the outside that she had a master plan from an early age.
A step by step blueprint to success and the life that she is living today.
But then you read in her words this interesting section detailing the life before it all came together and you can see that this is far from the truth.
As she say "I grew up in a very small town in North Carolina – pre-Internet era – and felt incredibly frustrated with the lack of opportunities and like-minded people. I left home early to head to college, so I could get a jump-start on doing the things I cared about, like getting a masters degree in theology and becoming a political reporter, presidential campaign spokesperson, nonprofit executive director, and documentary film-maker.
In 2006, I launched my marketing strategy consulting business, and eventually started writing, speaking professionally, and teaching for business schools. I’m passionate about helping others take control of their professional lives and make an impact on the world, and have written two books – Reinventing You and the Stand Out – to help make that a reality."
And the key word being "eventually"
She took action, worked hard, undoubtedly hustled until eventually it all come together and she became being who she is today.
So looking back to her younger days, would she still leave home early or would she take a different road to where she is today?
And what would be the biggest learning that he has gained over the last few years?
Well let's find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up the dots with the one and only Dorie Clark.
