Entrepreneurs want to know it all. But, looking back at the beginning of our careers, it's clear that hindsight is 20/20, and that identifying our blind spots only helps us grow. This episode, we're delighted to host Kelly Rossman-McKinney, one of the most impressive and inspiring communicators we've ever met. We dive into her professional journey: how life for women business owners has changed over the years, and how even CEOs need to ask for help now and then.
As we look back on our careers, it becomes clear that there's no way to forecast every change that will come our way. Industries shift, trends come and go and we can't pretend to know it all. How can we identify our blind spots and fill the gaps of what we don't know?
This episode's guest, Kelly Rossman-McKinney, is an experienced communicator with more than a few notches in her belt. From former co-founder and retired CEO of a PR firm to current communications director for Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (with a legislative run in between), Kelly has a detailed background in communicating, writing and speaking strategically. But just like any of us, there's a long list of things she wishes she had known starting out in her career.
How can acknowledging our blind spots help us grow in our careers? Kelly shares how her industry has shifted over the decades, what she learned from a legislative run and her advice for entrepreneurs searching for the elusive and unattainable work-life balance.
