On the Schmooze

Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Today’s guest is a leading forecaster of business, politics, and culture in our fast-moving digital age. She is an entrepreneur, author and consultant to Fortune 1000 companies. Her accomplishments include founding the award-winning social impact agency Women Online and the influencer network The Mission List.

She was also founding Political Director of BlogHer.com and has written for numerous publications including Harvard Business Review, the Wall St. Journal, and the New York Times. She has shared her expertise as a lecturer at the Yale Women’s Campaign School, the Harvard Kennedy School, and at the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders Forum.

She is the host of the Forbes podcast Hiding in the Bathroom, which is the topic of her new book “Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert’s Roadmap to Getting Out There (When You’d Rather Stay Home).”

Please join me in welcoming Morra Aarons-Mele.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “I am most proud of my leadership because I feel my role as a leader is to create a framework and a structure and a culture that empowers people to do what they know how to do, and to know I am there if they need me.”
  • why she left the corporate world and why she has never regretted it.
  • her views on entrepreneurship that are different from many others, but have helped her create a successful business in a manner that is comfortable for her.
  • how she understands her weaknesses and what she does to compensate for them.
  • her unique networking hack of reaching out to ten people each week.
  • how she has learned to stop stewing and being anxious by doing something kind for someone else.
