Introduce yourself to our audience. Tell us who you are and what you are currently focused on.
I'm a Copenhagen, Denmark based American and International Entrepreneur, Speaker, Author and Actionist. My most current project is focused on expanding International Earth Day awareness and action annually on April 22nd and throughout the year.
How would you define your professional mission?
Working to help people see the invisible opportunities to live a life by own design and successfully collaborate with others to build a better world benefitting people, planet and profit.
What is one of your most memorable career accomplishments?
Mentoring the founder of Denmark's first foodbank and later sitting on its board for three years.
What project have you worked on that you’re most proud of? Why?
I am perhaps most proud of the project for which I have a pending world record. It was a 168 hour Livestream conference created in two weeks that ran the course of Global Entrepreneurship Week in 2015; engaged the most diverse speaker line in all of my 40 years of speaking; had over 15,000 people in attendance and offered entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurial minded assistance, support, opportunities and peace of mind 24 hours a day for seven straight days. Because in 10 years of intensely researching the entrepreneurial spirit, support, visibility and a platform are among the most important needs entrepreneurs frequently have trouble fulfilling.
We’d love to hear more about your career path. What led you to where you are today?
My curious nature, love of exploring the new, a strong experiential approach to living life and a constant desire to share my knowledge and be of service to others.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
Being able to witness the transformation or transcendence of those with whom I work.
What is it about your job that makes you feel it’s the right fit for you?
It's not a job at all. It is an extension of the life that I have and continue to design.
Who are your role models?
My mother, Dr. Katharine Webb, who was the first African-American to receive a PhD at Indiana State University and in her role as New York State Commissioner of Corrections, among the first Female and African-American State Commissioners. More classically, Jane Goodall, Gandhi, Oprah and Nadia Comăneci
What does success look like to you?
An ability to enjoy life through aligned everyday actions. Doing well by doing good. Getting ahead by giving value. Living through loving.
What advice would you offer future leading ladies wishing to break into your industry?
"Do you." Tap into what your unique desires and gifts are and share them. Don't aim to bring more of the same; aim to disrupt, improve and enhance.
What is the best career advice you ever received?
Starting out: "Dress for the job you want not the one you have." This goes beyond clothing and can also deal with how much effort you put into your work, the network you are building and the way you go about fulfilling your job on a daily basis. Aim for excellence.
What is one piece of advice you’d offer working moms?
Make your own well being a priority. Physically and mentally. This will give you the resources to be able to manage the challenging and unexpected with grace and more ease than constantly being tired, overworked and undernourished.
