    #037 Kevin Brown, Speaker & Author of Unleash Your Hero - Recognizing and Owning Your Gifts

    #037 Kevin Brown, Speaker & Author of Unleash Your Hero - Recognizing and Owning Your Gifts

    Today’s episode is with Kevin Brown - author, speaker and business exec.

    As you’ll hear in this conversation Kevin’s unconventional path to success taught him that winning in business and in life requires anything but conventional thinking.

    He grew up in Michigan where his blue-collar roots taught him the value of hard work and determination. He spent the last 20 years of his corporate career as part of a leadership team that built a little known family business into the #1 franchise in their industry with annual revenues exceeding $2 billion dollars.

    What really stood out to me in our conversation was Kevin’s willingness to let go of an accomplished dream and put himself out there into the unknown and take on something new.

    Since 2016, Kevin Brown has traveled the world pursuing a mission to share The HERO Effect® message with as many people and organizations as possible. I was intrigued by how he empathized that speaking isn’t his passion - but his gift. 

    In his newly published book, Unleashing Your Hero, Kevin shares how the heroes who transformed his life are people just like you.  We talk about the inspiration behind writing the book and some of the key concepts he writes about. I was mind blown by his definition of ‘’heroes’’ and think you might be too.

    #036 Molly Masters, Founder of Books That Matter - The Startup Adventures

    #036 Molly Masters, Founder of Books That Matter - The Startup Adventures

    My guest today is Molly Masters who founded Books That Matter in 2017, while still in her second year at university studying English Literature. She is hugely passionate about women’s writing, feminism and activism. Molly created this subscription box company as a way to raise up the voices of women writers and creatives (including transgender and non-binary persons), and to create a platform for social change and empowerment.

    Today’s conversation is not one to be missed!

    Molly’s story is the definition of humble beginnings. I first met her at a networking event in Bristol, which she couldn’t afford to attend but managed to hustle her way in. I immediately knew she was special! We talked about all the learnings, pivots and adventures of launching her start up, Books That Matter, thanks to a competition hosted by her university. You’ll want to hear her tell you how she not only was the only non-MBA student to apply but she was the first female winner in the history of the competition.

    We go into the messy details of starting a business and how you can fill in those knowledge gaps. Molly walks us through the exponential growth she’s experienced since launching and throughout the pandemic (growing from her apartment floor, to an outdoor storage container to a full fulfillment center). She’s gone from countless rejections and packing the boxes herself, to becoming one of the biggest book subscription boxes in the UK!

    We also talked about recognizing the need to start building a team and what that looked like for Books That Matter. Spoiler alert: Passion alignment is *everything*! Finally, Molly talks us through the biggest challenges she’s faced so far! You don’t want to miss this episode.

    Let’s dive in!

    #035 Garrett Peek, Team Lead in Garmin Labs - Connecting the Dots in Retrospect

    #035 Garrett Peek, Team Lead in Garmin Labs - Connecting the Dots in Retrospect

    My guest today is Garrett Peek. Garrett is a Team Lead in Garmin Labs working on disruptive product innovation. He is responsible for guiding the research, design, development, launch and growth of new products with hundreds of millions of enthusiastic customers..

    Before joining Garmin, Garrett cofounded several startups and worked for Zynga after the acquisition of OMGPOP, where he designed the hit mobile game Draw Something.

    As you’ll hear in this conversation, Garrett's career has been a wild ride. I can tell you now that things didn’t always go according to plan.

    From a young age, he was known for his building and creating, whether it be lego or painting. He spent a lot of time thinking how he might be able to use or apply these skills in the ‘’real’’ world. After graduating, Garret decided he wanted to move to Boston to be closer to a friend, but after 28 job applications, 1 response and no job offers, he had to reassess.

    This didn’t last for long, as before he knew it he struck lucky and was helping put together pitches for Super Bowl commercials. Garrett talked about how the moment you realize that you’re hitting your comfort zone, is the moment you’re prime for disruption - I loved this!

    Garrett discusses the common themes to success throughout his career, which he says come down to three things: 1- what teams would I be useful on, 2- how do I make myself indispensable, and 3- what is FUN to me. He’s also pretty good at reading the room, but I’ll let him tell you that story.

    Garret also highlights the importance of interviewing the company, as well as being interviewed by them. Have you ever asked what you are going in to solve during an interview?

    Like most of our guests, Garrett didn’t have a plan and only now, looking back retrospectively, has he been able to connect the dots! I think this episode is sure to become a fan favorite!

    First, we discuss one of my favorite topics, creating opportunities even when they appear limited. Vanessa’s story really illustrates the art of punching above your weight and being brave enough to raise your hand. Vanessa also tells us about how she dreamt about working in the financial industry and how she made that happen, despite not having the typical academic background. Yes, she faced her fair amount of ‘'no's'' along the way.
