It's mic swap time! I sat down with Anu Vora. We talk about my experiences and lessons throughout my journey in finding my place within the the intersection of people and technology that by now, ya'll know I am very passionate about.
I'm sharing my ideas on company culture and the many gray areas that can exist within it. Here's some questions we touch on: Are we talking the talk AND walking the walk? Do our employees genuinely feel heard, seen, and supported? How does empathy truly fit within that culture? And beyond that, can we consciously own up to when we don't project that empathy in business and in life?
We're diving into how money impacts our world and the decisions we make while moving through it.
Further, we're diving into aspirations vs. expectations and how we can change our relationship to these things in order to effectively reach our goals without being too hard on ourselves.
Anu allowed me to sit down and think about my next goals- what I am working on and thinking about- in business, in marketing, and in life. She offered some amazing insights and thought provoking questions...take a listen and investigate these points of reflection in your own life.

This week's episode may in fact be the most timely one we have ever had the pleasure of hosting. In the wake up of the recent college admission scandals, we are all being forced to confront the inequalities on all levels within our country's higher education system. The truth is, there were 56 families indicted in this current scandal, but the problem doesn't end there. The question remains, how massive really is this problem? There's few better people to talk about such an issue than Anu Vora. As a recent graduate, Anu is the founder and CEO of AdmitAlly, a tool that is revolutionizing the college application process for high school students. It matches them to current undergrads for 1-on-1 mentorship in the college application process. She's sharing what this scandal means for students and where we stand moving forward. Further, we’re diving into the college system in and of itself. What Anu offers to the world is admirable- she went out on a whim to change the lives of high school students. And to think, she's only just getting started. We're hitting on why we start start-ups in the first place- what motivates us? What does success in terms of start ups even mean, especially in today's world? This episode is a gem and sheds light on so many of the issues coming up in society today; take a listen below... we don't think you'll regret it.
