What’s Discussed on Today’s Show:

●    How Liz blazed an unorthodox career trail to get to where she is today, and the lessons this taught her about work and education

 

●    The experiences Liz had early in her life and career that allowed her to eventually become a household name in journalism - and what journalism has taught her about empathy and about human interaction ●    How she learned to approach her role as the interviewer of some of the biggest names in the industry such as Warren Buffett

 

●    The shared trait among some of the world’s greatest entrepreneurs such as Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, Brian Chesky, and Bill Gates

 

●    The particular brand of relentlessness and drive that propels the best entrepreneurs in the world - and how the way they look at the world makes them unique

 

●    The role gender plays in business, the differences between men and women in the workplace, and Liz’s thoughts on feminism and meritocracy

 

●    The all-important role persistence plays in a career
