So Money - Episode 574

Wendy Sachs

"Fearless and Free" Author

If you’re on the cusp of making a transition in your career or dream of one day making a shift, but aren’t sure how to make the most of it, today’s guest is full of priceless advice. Wendy Sachs is the author of the new book Fearless and Free: How Smart Women Pivot and Relaunch their Careers and my O, The Oprah Magazine family calls this a “title to pick up now.”

We are living in an era of professional reinvention and women, in particular, Wendy says, are seeking new ways to stay relevant, be fulfilled and make an impact. How can we transition without trepidation? How to traverse the roadblocks and dance with the fears we harbor about failure?

Wendy is also an Emmy-award winning TV news producer. She’s worked on NBC’s Dateline, Fox and CNN. She was also a Capitol Hill press secretary and PR executive. Stay tuned as Wendy speaks from her own personal experiences, pivoting so much in her career she jokes she’s constantly pirouetting…sometimes out of choice, other times out of necessity. She’s been fired twice and is constantly working on her ability to thrive financially in an evolving media industry.
