Today’s guest says if you had asked her former lawyer self if she imagined herself in the career she has today, the likely response would have been: “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?”

Speaker and author of the “Build Your Dream Network: Forging Powerful Relationships in a Hyper-Connected World,” she has been lauded from Forbes to Fast Company for her networking skills and Twitter acumen.

Her entire career story is a networked one, from her first career as a lawyer to being invited to join non-profit and startup boards, to dine with Malala, and then to writing her book and so much more.

She believes success is not simply a question of what you know, how hard you work, or even who you have the good fortune of bumping into. Instead, she believes success in a hyper-connected world comes down to who knows what you know.

Please join me in welcoming J. Kelly Hoey.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is not being afraid of other people’s success and helping others reach their potential.”
  • her first mentor when she began practicing law, and how he lead in a way that ingrained in her a desire to excel, to be better, and created fierce loyalty.
  • how she has always been career focused but is finally in the career she loves now.
  • the benefit of handing out name tags at an event.
  • her emphasis on showing up and being engaged while also maintaining diverse networks.
  • how she shows people what she does instead of just telling them.
