Topics discussed in this episode:
- Success is not a place, it's not a destination. It’s really a well rounded vibe.
- A career maven is someone who really takes ownership of her career story and is charting her own path.
- We need to shake the patriarchal dust off and really create the workplace and the work community that we want to see.
Standing out on social media
- People absolutely need to be on LinkedIn, that’s where professional people are.
- Let your LinkedIn profile reflect who you are as a professional, I like to believe that we are a lot more than whatever our day job may be.
- Be socially generous, respond and amplify the work of others.
Working from home
- Just take a beat and make sure that your next step is your best step.
- Real agency is having the option to have both a career and a family rather than choose.
- I can still hit my deliverables and not hold up a desk chair for eight hours. No one needs to do that.
