Featured episode – When Playing It Safe Becomes Riskier Than Change w/ Amy Parsons
Amy Parsons has never been a risk-taker. She built her career on doing what was expected—always playing it safe. Go to law school. Work for a great law firm. Become in-house corporate conical for a well-respected company. Take an executive position with a State University. And then the pandemic hit and made her rethink everything. She had a stable job as the Executive Chancellor at Colorado State University, but it left her questioning, “Am I really making the impact I would like? Am I living my passion?” It became clear that it was risker to stay than it was to leave, and she made the leap to co-found the Italian luxury beauty and men’s grooming brand, Mozzafiato.
And what a leap it was! During our interview, Parsons shares how she overcame her fear, taking a risk on herself. She details how important a team is in a start-up and how she handles the stress of running a startup. We talk about how what you tolerate becomes what’s expected and how to manage your energy to show up as the best version of yourself. It’s a magical interview, and I know you will love Parsons as much as I do!
