Ep 246 – The Co-Founder of VIPER on Believing in your Intuition

The Co-Founder of VIPER on Believing in your Intuition

They say independent thinkers make great leaders. They’re confident in themselves, their problem-solving skills, and the new ideas they often bring to the table. This week’s guest was raised to think for herself above all else, so nothing was going to stop her from doing what she thought was best for her — and that just happened to be becoming an entrepreneur.
In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, we’re joined by Celeste Durve, Co-Founder of VIPER to talk about tackling social media addiction, knowing when it’s time to grow and evolve your business, and the unexpected loneliness that can come with being an entrepreneur. 
Celeste Durve:
There are many characteristics that make a good entrepreneur. According to Google, you should be motivated, resilient, passionate, creative — the list goes on and on. But one of the most overlooked qualities is being an independent thinker. Someone who doesn’t rely on others’ opinions. It takes courage to have your own thoughts, and our guest this week isn’t afraid to think for herself. 
Celeste Durve was told to question everything from a young age, which left her asking why the nightlife world was so disorganised. As a result, she co-founded VIPER, an experiential talent agency, owned and operated by women, that reimagines brand engagement through model staffing and hospitality. Working with everyone from Beyonce to Google, Celeste also hosts her own podcast called Smart is Sexy and recently pioneered a nightlife safety initiative called #LASTCALL to raise awareness about women being drugged inside bars and clubs.
