I chat with Erin Bury, who was not only listed under Marketing Magazine's 30 Under 30, but also grown her personal brand so big...even Oprah noticed. For this episode of the Mo' Money Podcast, I chat with Erin about what she learned about what not to do with her money in college and why she decided to change career paths from journalist to small business owner.
"Millennials are not lazy entitled, losers and we actually have a lot to say," - Erin Bury. Officially my favourite quote from one of my podcast guests!
The big reason I wanted to chat with Erin is because she is such a good example of where hustle can take you. She's gotten to where she is in her career because she worked hard, tried new things and took some major risks.
For instance, when I asked her how she got to be one of Marketing Magazine's 30 Under 30, she said she nominated herself. I bet most people wouldn't have even thought of doing that, and while those people are waiting for someone to just give it to them, Erin went out and got it for herself. You go girl!
I also love how she advocates for everyone to work on their personal brand. As I mentioned, for my day job, part of it entails teaching professionals how to craft their personal brand to win new business. But if you're not looking for clients, you could still find a new job or a new gig just by putting some time and effort into your social profiles and pitching yourself as an expert to the media.
All I know is I can't wait to see what Erin's accomplished when she gets listed for 40 Under 40!
