Excerpts from their interview

Get a sneak peek at Blair Morgan’s interview with these four inspiring women leaders in technology, entertainment, and media. Though their paths are each unique, their answers provide inspiration and help demystify what it takes to join the ranks of the top women in tech.

Q: When making bold moves, what challenges have you overcome and how have they impacted you?

Laura: I think I was a little ahead of my time with the content. At first, it was kind of discouraging knowing it was good content and I had data backing it, but it wasn’t catching fire. Now at Google, there are so many places where it fits.

Erika: When I joined Barstool, I was fired from every board I was on. I ended up creating a company that I'm incredibly proud of, and I believe we’re quite revolutionary in what we do.

Prachi: I was asked to take over a leadership role after having my first baby. What helped me make the leap was a very supportive manager who convinced me to try out the role. Often, you will surprise yourself and experience exponential growth.

Maureen: My biggest challenges have been those requiring a new strategy in an un-touched space, but that is also what has made me successful: finding undefined opportunities and jumping right in.

Q: How did you leverage advice from mentors or other advisors to chart the vision for your career?
Q: What fuels/energizes you the most in your professional and personal endeavors?
