30. Navigating a Career Transition and Tracking Your Success With the Hype Book | Studio 78 Podcast with Nache Snow

Toni Purry thrived as a public relations (PR) executive for many years, but always wondered about starting a business of her own. After receiving a proposition from friend, she decided to throw caution to the wind and start her business. She describes herself as a calculated risk taker who views obstacles as merely hurdles to overcome.

During our discussion, Toni opens up about how taking a step back from her flourishing PR company led to a period of self-doubt and self-defeating thoughts, but how she overcame this period with inspiration from a unlikely source and created The Hype Book. Her commentary serves as a reminder to all of us to focus on our wins and let go of our losses.
