Entrepreneur and CEO of Likeable Media Carrie Kerpen shares her badass secrets for women who want to crush it in business. Carrie has built a successful business around HER life, rather than building her life around her business. We talk ‘work-life integration’, alignment, and how women can be their boldest, badass selves.
As women we all talk about “work-life balance”, probably because it’s so easy to fall into feelings of guilt, shame, frustration when our time and energies get spread too thin.
Carrie Kerpen is an entrepreneur who built her business around her life – rather than striving to build her life around her business. She’s CEO of Likeable Media, voted one of New York City’s best places to work, and we share our secrets of how to live purposeful integrated lives that allow us to show up as our best selves to our customers, investors, team members, partners, families and friends.
Carrie has a book coming out in 2018 called “Work It: Secrets for Success of the Boldest Women in Business”, and here is a sneak peek at some of those secrets:
- “Hustle, Hustle, Hustle is NOT the Answer: You don’t have to build a unicorn to be successful, says Carrie. A lot of us feel pressure to go for the “brass ring”, raise lots of capital and build something massive. But you don’t: Build the business that supports the lifestyle you want to lead, and don’t just think in terms of dollar signs.
- Get Used to ‘No’: Women can sometimes fall into the trap of being too coachable because we want to please everyone. If you’re going to raise funds, be clear and certain in your vision so you don’t easily get blown off course by a lot of contradictory advice.
- “Entrepreneurship is therapy”: This is a journey that transforms us into our best selves – that is, if we want to succeed. You have to be open to self-discovery and self-improvement, and align your business to your authentic self and core competencies.
