Ep. 62: Tori Dunlap Has Thrived As An Entrepreneur Since Age Nine
"You have to be open to the things you could never have planned for."
A lot has been written about workplace conflict between Generation X'ers and Millennials, but Tori Dunlap shows that the younger generation has its own wisdom to share. Tori tells her story of starting her first business at age 9, and taking ownership of her life ever since. She talks about managing a corporate job and a side hustle, being open to unexpected opportunities, finding a support network, and trusting in the goodness of people. This episode made me hopeful for the future, and I hope it makes you hopeful too!
"It's just about prioritizing your life and figuring out: okay, if I have a specific goal I want to achieve, how am I going to achieve that? And I think again, it's also realizing that there are people around you who are doing the exact same thing and there is no shame if you need to be held accountable by asking somebody else to help you do that."
We discuss how millennials view work, the digital nomad trend, supporting other women, not leaving power on the table, the importance of prioritizing, why finding your story (and using it!) is so important, lessons learned from owning a business as a child, her advice for staying sane while juggling a main job and side hustle, the importance of finding people who inspire you, how planning things out really detracts from your life, going with your gut, and more.
"I think what people fail to realize about the millennial generation is that we are some of the hardest working people, it's just not in the traditional "corporate" way."
What you'll learn:
"I think this is so important for people just starting out in their careers: to find your story and be able to tell it."
