12 Jan #011 – Whitney Johnson – From Musician to Top Banker And Beyond
Whitney Johnson shares her amazing journey from studying music to becoming a top Wall Street Banker, an Investor and now also Author. Her latest book is “Disrupt Yourself” which fits perfectly to the theme of the Podcast.
Her journey wasn’t as streamlined as it sounds. She disrupted herself multiple times. And she has also had her lows.
What I really liked about the conversation with Whitney was that she made me share some of my lows and own disruptions too.
We also discuss her model from the book when you go through such a disruptive phase in your life.
Tune in and enjoy the honest and raw conversation!
