I’m a former, award-winning CNN correspondent, as well as public relations and non-profit executive, who is currently on her 4th career as an entrepreneur and podcast host.
As host of the Time4Coffee podcast, I’ve spent the last couple of years interviewing hundreds of professionals – in dozens of different careers from the entry-level up to the executive C-suite – about what they do in their current jobs and how they built their careers.
During these interviews, I’ve heard countless stories of how these men and women, zigged and zagged their way to finding the right professional fit. I’ve also heard stories of devastating failures that turned into fabulous opportunities, as well as the power of building an authentic personal network and the outsized importance of cultivating qualities like grit and curiosity.
Along the way, I’ve had mind-blowing moments when I realized there were cross-cutting themes among so many of those who’ve landed in careers they loved, versus those who still haven’t.
I’d love to help you cut through all the noise and recognize that your college major isn’t the ‘tiny house’ that you’ll be forced to live in for the rest of your days. Instead, it’s the foundation of a ‘professional skyscraper’ that you’ll be building for decades to come, with each new job and career adding a new floor to that skyscraper!
