By September 8, 2020 No Comments

Welcome back! Did you use this time to unplug or get your idea off the ground? If the latter, drop me a note, I’d love to hear what you’re working on. 

From our community

We meet interesting people each week, and after speaking with Cara Jefferson, I thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of the interesting connections we make.

Cara is a biology researcher, product manager, and Washington University graduate. She is currently working with startup Respond Flow and interned at STL-based Simulpass before that. We discussed where she goes for inspiration in the entrepreneur community. Here’s what she shared:

I love podcasts. They are where I go when looking for inspiration. Here are my top two:

  • Masters of Scale
    But I really like Masters of Scale for its high-level approach and focus on frameworks for building and growing a business
  • Hidden Brain
    This one looks into what it means to be confident and happy which is I think is in line with why people pursue entrepreneurship and is good for both professional and personal insights

Where do you go for inspiration? Join us online this Thursday and let us know.

See you online this Thursday!
