January 2019 Update: Book Launch, Podcasts, Reviews, Events & More

In October 2018, I published my first book, Power to the Startup People: How To Grow Your Startup Career When You’re Not The Founder.

Here is a recap of recent podcast interviews, press, reviews, and events related to the book.

We launched the book at Techstars Boulder with a lively panel discussion about startup careers featuring:

  • Andrea Guendelman, Founder, BeVisible Latinx
  • Erin Rand, COO, Atipica
  • Analiese Brown, Director of Talent & Culture, CampMinder
  • Josh Ashton, Head of People Operations, GutCheck

Thank you to the panelists, Techstars’ Julie Penner and Hannah Davis, who helped organize the event, and to everyone who joined us at the launch.

Featured in Feld Thoughts Post By Brad Feld

VC and Techstars co-founder Brad Feld has been an amazing supporter along my startup journey (as well as the journeys of countless others), including helping me launch Flatirons LGBTQ Tech Meetup in Boulder, CO back in 2014. I’m honored by both Brad’s official book endorsement (check it out on Amazon) and by his generous feature of Power to the Startup People in a recent blog post on Feld Thoughts.

I enjoyed discussing Power to the Startup People on Helping Sells Radio with my epic beloved former podcast co-host Bill Cushard. Bill is a fantastic interviewer (and a friend) so this was particularly fun to do.  Listen to the episode

This is one of my favorite podcast interviews I’ve ever done. Thank you to Hall Martin for featuring Power to the Startup People on his podcast Investor Connect. In this episode, we discuss the following topics from the book:

  • How does someone from a large corporation re-adjust quickly to the startup world
  • What do you look for when you join a startup?
  • What do you negotiate up front when you join a startup?
  • When is the best time to join a startup?
  • When is the best time to leave a startup?
