How We Do it

By featuring targeted content (thought leadership) from trusted leaders and experts and providing a platform for driven individuals to share and strengthen their perspective and voice. 

What We Do

"Thought leaders are the informed opinion leaders and the go-to people in their field of expertise. They are trusted sources who move and inspire people with innovative ideas; turn ideas into reality, and know and show how to replicate their success"

Denise Brosseau, Thought Leadership Lab

A Few Featured Contributors

On Career Advice: "Every success we’ve had has come from listening to our gut. You have to believe in yourself and go for it. Who would have believed a body suit and a wrap skirt would have revolutionized the way women dressed? There was no precedent for it. I don’t consider anything a mistake. You learn from everything you do, the good and the bad. The point is to stay open and try something."

Donna Karan

Founder of DKNY

On Career Advice: "Don’t waste too much time on a prior thinking. Just get started. Fail faster, which means: do small low-cost low-risk experiments to test your ideas and be ready to change quickly."

Jimmy Wales

Founder of Wikipedia

On Success: "Making mistakes is part of any job (and in life, for that matter). One learns from mistakes and hopefully you don’t repeat the same mistake. The point is to think about what happened and why; admit it was an error and don’t try to cover the mistake up as it will just get bigger and cause more anxiety or problems."

Cathie Black

Former Chairman and President, Hearst Magazines

On Industry Opportunities: "The influx of social platforms present great opportunities for emerging musicians to be discovered, but on the flip side, it can also be challenging to get your voice heard in a crowded space. Up and coming musicians need to be strategic to get their name out there, and they also need to be prepared to face the criticisms that come along with the world stage..."

Shawn Prez

Founder of Global Spin Awards

On Favorite Motto: "...“kill Prince Charming.” What I mean by this is that many of us often tend to rely on external forces, such as a partner, a job or a company for our financial stability, now and future. However, we have to remember that partners, jobs and corporations can come and go, for all kinds of reasons. As such, you have to be poised to take care of yourself and to actualize your own dreams. The truth is that you have to be your own Prince Charming."

Nely Galán

Emmy Award-Winning Television Producer

On Most Difficult Moment: "Failing. It’s the nature of the game when it comes to startups but it still stings...Ultimately, bouncing back and realizing that the failure is usually not a reflection of your work but a reflection of several factors – many of which are not under your control – timing, capital, market, etc. allows you to live to fight another day. These difficult moments often also serve as the best learning opportunities that shape your professional development going forward."

Reza Chowdhury

Founder & CEO of Alleywatch
