I decided to make myself essential, by showing up. I decided to attend 100 events and write 1000 online comments.
By the time I was done, I was Founder/CEO of a funded startup, a recognized voice in the industry, and one of Forbes Ten Female Entrepreneurs To Watch. Today, I work with the world's leading corporations on the Future of Innovation.
