Authentic and Attention Grabbing
Hilary brings an undeniably authentic perspective on business, personal growth, and the importance of being fully human. It was refreshing to listen to a discussion about incorporating human interaction and imperfection into the business world. We need more of a focus on showing up as you are and “turning up the volume on being yourself”. Listening to this was the refreshing message I needed to hear this week!
Hearing real perspectives from females in the business world, especially entrepreneurs, is inspiring for me as a college student! This is a must listen to podcast!
Authentic Business >> Traditional Business
This podcast embodies the importance of staying true to yourself instead of compromising your uniqueness for the sake of “fitting in” or “being professional.” The fact of the matter is that business is made up of human beings, and until industries adopt and foster a sense of candid humanity, progress will continue to be stunted. Podcasts like Hilary’s will help push this movement forward!
