Ep 229 -The CEO & Co-Founder of Jellatech on Nurturing Your Network
For many of us, we’re taught to move through the world “safely”. Get good grades in order to get a “good” job. Work hard as an employee in order to gain respect and value.
But what if this traditional way of work and life is outdated? What if it isn’t “safe” at all?
In today’s episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, we hear from Stephanie Michelsen, the CEO and Co-Founder of Jellatech, a company that aims to use biotechnology to synthesise animal proteins – without killing the animals.
Stephanie shares why safety is an illusion and that the only constant in life is change, how she discovered the thing that lights her up, and why there’s no right time – so shoot your shot, peers.
Do you foster your network, peers? Or are you more of a solo-flyer?
While independence and self-sufficiency are important traits in entrepreneurs, oftentimes it’s our networks that can truly help us to level up.
In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, Stephanie Michelsen, shares the cold, hard truth that if you never ask, you’ll never know—if you never share your company’s values with people, how will they know what you’re about and that you exist?
As the CEO and Co-Founder of biotechnology company Jellatech, Stephanie reminds us that you have to hear eight or nine ‘Nos’ to get to that one, crucial ‘Yes’.
Because, while networking may feel a tad awkward at times, it’s those moments of putting yourself out there that 1) build courage and character and 2) get you in front of the people who can help you realise your vision.
