Starting your own business — Karin’s story
Karin Hurt had a successful executive career with a major wireless company. Her passion for being a great leader and growing great leaders not only helped her to excel in her corporate career, but also prompted her to start a blog called Let’s Grow Leaders on the side. Eventually, her desire to have a greater impact in the field of leadership caused her to leave Verizon and start a company that develops leaders. Karin will discuss her journey and lessons you apply on your journey to starting your own business.
What success means to Karin:
“I define success as having the impact that I’ve set out to make. I want to help lead well, feel good about leadership and lead authentically.“
