Today we’re talking about reverse-engineering your career and other opportunities. If you’ve ever caught yourself saying, “Someday that’ll be me,” or “Someday I’d love to do this…” Well, let today be the day you finally map out the plan. There’s something to be said and taught about FIRST figuring out who you ultimately want to be or what you want to do…analyzing how to get there, the mechanics, connecting the dots and then creating that experience for yourself.
Our guest today Amanda Kludt has her own experience with this. She landed her current role as the Editor-in-Chief of Eater by keeping her eye on the prize and implementing great strategy.
Eater, for those who may not know, is a popular guide to dining and drinking in the world’s best food cities. Since becoming the site’s Editor-in-Chief Amanda‘s expanded their reviews, investigative journalism and even targeted topics like why aren’t there more women in the restaurant business? She’s also responsible for helping the website score four James Beard Awards, it’s the highest honor in food journalism.
