This week! We’re going through our open tabs and will be discussing Performance Reviews, Inbox Infinity, and what etched cucumbers have to do with hustle culture.
Helping us bring some outside perspective today is our special guest Alex Daly.
Alex is the founder of Vann Alexandra, DalyPR, and, now, Daly. She is the industry’s “Crowdsourceress,” a member of the Forbes 30 Under 30 class of 2016, and a frequent speaker at festivals and events for designers, innovators, women entrepreneurs, and big thinkers. Dubbed a “Kickstarter queen,” “crowdfunding guru,” and “wunderkind”, she has managed crowdfunding and PR campaigns for Oscar-winning filmmakers, Pentagram partners, MIT Media Lab inventors, Neil Young, Joan Didion, and the female-led musical sensation TLC. In 2017, Alex authored her first book, The Crowdsourceress: Get Smart, Get Funded, and Kickstart Your Next Big Idea, published by Hachette. Basically, she’s bloody amazing.
