What does it take to go from small town USA to Silicon Valley? What sort of risk would you be willing to personally and financially take as a startup entrepreneur? What would be the point where you knew that you had to change the amount of work you were taking on? I’m so excited to have Esther Brady on the podcast today. A social media influencer, turned tech startup CEO - she covers the journey of being a female entrepreneur and company owner. She is so honest about her journey, what it has meant to her as a woman and as a mother. The lessons that she’s learnt, how she takes risk and the self-trust that she’s anchored to over the past decade. Her wisdom is rich, and this is a refreshingly honest episode for us women who are in the business start-up world. So much insight. Esther is the co-founder and CEO of Molly, a venture-backed startup based in San Francisco. She previously led product marketing at Coach.me and Stride. She's an award-winning pioneer in influencer marketing who spearheaded groundbreaking digital campaigns in social and video for Fortune 500 companies. After finding early success on YouTube, Esther acted as a Weight Watchers spokeswoman and was an on-air contributor to CNN, Fox News, and iVillage.
