Episode 31- Following a Non-Linear Career Path

Update: 2021-10-18


In this week’s episode, I talk with Holly Shannon.  While Holly talks about her non-linear career path in our conversation, you will see there is a throughline around business strategy.  Through years in the hospitality and event industries, Holly has built an amazing career creating white glove services, focusing on creating experiences and using EQ to help guide leaders to grow and scale their businesses.  She has even done that for herself as an entrepreneur, author and podcast host.
