The path unfolds when you begin, is just one of the pearls dropped by Business Builder Show guest Maxie McCoy. Maxie is the author of the book: You’re Not Lost: An Inspired Action Plan For Finding Your Own Way (2018/Tarcher Perigee). In our conversation Maxie shares her wild non-linear career path from sports broadcasting to women’s leadership, reveals why she thinks “follow your passion” can be B.S. advice when it comes to your career and discusses the absurdity of our ongoing obsession with “X under X age” accomplishment lists. We also find time to dive into end of month reflections plus why she’s a fan of micro-actions and side-hustles.
Kelly Hoey is the author of Build Your Dream Network (January 2017 / Tarcher Perigee). She has been lauded from Forbes (“1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship”) to Fast Company (“1 of the 25 Smartest Women On Twitter”) to Business Insider (“1 of the 100 Most Influential Tech Women On Twitter”) and Inc. (1 of “10 Most Well-Connected People in New York City's Startup Scene”). Empowering A Billion Women By 2020 included her on their list of the “100 Most Influential Global Leaders Empowering Women Worldwide”. Not bad for a former corporate lawyer. She’s a limited partner in two emerging tech funds (Laconia Capital Group and Lattice Ventures) and can frequently be found on Twitter @jkhoey.
