92. Shoot Your Shot with Portland Trail Blazers' Director of Guest Experience, Kara Adams (2020‪)‬ Game of Her Own

    • Sports

“No one offered me those positions. I had to work for them. I had to advocate for them.  I had to ask for them.” -Kara Adams, Director of Guest Experience for the Portland Trail Blazers


Do not miss out on my conversation with Kara. She is real and showed up to give y’all advice to help you take your career to the next level. She is a woman who has ALWAYS gone after what she wants. She hasn’t been afraid to shoot her shot. Listen, Kara is such a boss that when she went to Howard University and learned there was no Sports Management Major, she created it. That’s right, she is the reason the Sports Management program exists at Howard.  
 
Highlight reel from our great convo: 
-How she handles being told no 
-What she did to get crystal clear and land the role she has now 
-How to advocate for yourself and how to approach your boss 
-Why you should never be the person who just wants to get their foot in the door 
-How to hire and effectively lead during a pandemic 
 
Make sure to stick around to the end.  This Howard Alum gives some great advice!
