How to Thrive in a Disruptive Economy and Spark your Passion with Lisa Thee Roar with Lakecia Gunter

    • Business

“Getting to a place of power and authority, it was important to me to not only focus on the problems that have already been looked at, but to shift the attention and change the conversation to the bigger issues that I really cared about.” - Lisa Thee
As we progress in our careers, it’s natural for our goals to get pushed forward in accordance with our accomplishments. First, it’s getting the big job with the fancy title, then the goal becomes working with a top tier company in your field, until one day it’s all about getting a seat on the Board of Directors. But once you’ve earned those achievements, you might start to feel like there’s more to the ladder than the steps leading up to its summit. For some of us, there comes a time when we’re ready to start building our own ladder.   
Following a disturbing scene on a business trip abroad early in her career, my guest today made a promise to herself. She vowed that someday when she had accumulated the experience and influence necessary to create change, she was going to dedicate her life to making an impact. So, she worked her way up the corporate ladder and gained the non-profit and volunteer experience she needed during her free time. Eventually, she decided to pivot, recognizing that the time had come to make her move from success to significance. 
My guest today is Lisa Thee, the CEO and Founder of Launch Consulting Group’s Data for Good Practice. The safety-focused software startup helps innovative healthcare, technology, and gaming companies accomplish their goals relating to digital safety, anti-toxicity, upskilling programs for diverse populations, and applying AI and machine learning for innovation in healthcare. 
Lisa was on the road to burnout as a busy working mother and technology company executive for a multinational company. So in 2018, she took the reins of her career and became an entrepreneur.  Today this female founder has become a Board of Directors Member, Keynote Speaker, and sought-after Consultant.  She was named to the top 100 Human Trafficking and Slavery Disruptors list, and has a TEDx talk coming in 2021 on “Using AI to Disrupt Human Trafficking in the Digital Age”.  She is an advisory board member for Engineered Medical Solutions, Marketplace Risk, and Humaxa. She is a Board of Directors member for 3 Strands Global Foundation and the Sacramento Entrepreneurship Academy.
Today, we’ll hear how Lisa made her transition into entrepreneurship. We’ll also discuss why that leap towards a career with purpose was so transformative both personally and professionally. If you’re considering a pivot from your successful career towards something with a greater social impact and personal significance, Lisa’s story is one that will motivate and inspire you to take action in your own life and career, sparking the alignment of your strengths and passions.
