Ep. 43: Digital Marketing Pioneer Sheryl Victor Levy Lives the Life She Wants
"I let my curiosity lead me and I didn't let my job title hold me back."
"As a woman who's been working for almost twenty years, it's about what are you going to look back on? How are you going to look back on yourself and your life? Are you going to have regrets? Our world is in a very tumultuous time right now, coupled with the fact that life is very short, and I'm very present to that."
Sheryl Victor Levy is the founder of Savvy Strategy, a digital consulting firm specializing in content and social media strategy. She describes her career path as going from glamour - think jobs at MTV and VH1 - to purpose. Cause marketing is her new passion, as she uses her skills to promote worthy causes like NYC's BigApps competition. Learn from Sheryl's boldness in negotiating, pitching, and getting what she wants out of life.
"I decided quite recently that my life was not going to be one big compromise. With that, I've embraced the joy more. I've embraced my family more. And I have embraced doing things, and having that bucket list, and really getting out there and living the life that I want to lead. Not with casualties, but helping others, being better to others, and really pursuing things that are meaningful."
We discuss her career path from beginning at VH1 as an administrative assistant, her first supportive boss, getting opportunities by doing extra unpaid work, letting her curiosity lead, taking the extra initiative, her proudest career moments, starting her own business, her winding path to entrepreneurship,
