MDC 021 Dorie Clark on Entrepreneurial You
Whether you’re an entrepreneur looking to create more income streams in your business, or you have a day job but you want to pivot into a different role or start a side hustle, this conversation with the incredible Dorie Clark is for you.
Dorie Clark is an adjunct professor at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and the author of Entrepreneurial You, Reinventing You and Stand Out, which was named the #1 Leadership Book of 2015 by Inc. magazine. A former presidential campaign spokeswoman, the New York Times described her as an “expert at self-reinvention and helping others make changes in their lives.” A frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review, she consults and speaks for clients including Google, Microsoft, and the World Bank.
In this conversation we talk about Dorie’s latest book Entrepreneurial You and Dorie shares a wealth of career advice that is super helpful regardless of whether you’re an entrepreneur or you’re working within an organisation. We talk about the following areas:
- The benefits of creating multiple income streams and why it’s the antidote to risk in today’s modern world
- How to rescue yourself when you feel stuck in your career
- Why focus is important and how to choose what to focus on
- Why having a platform is essential if you want to write a book
- Maintaining credibility when you reinvent your career
Here are 3 key takeaways from my conversation with Dorie:
- Why it’s really important for everyone to create multiple income streams
- Why mindset and persistence are the 2 biggest keys to your success as an entrepreneur
- Dorie’s 3-pillar approach to becoming a recognized expert in your field
And just a heads up that there are some small sound quality issues in this episode as the connection with Dorie in Geneva was not the best. Please bear with us, as this is a really powerful conversation that I know you’ll love.
