Linda Descano, who works for Citi as ‘part marketer, part publisher and part journalist’, is a social media and outreach juggernaut. Early this year, when I was entering a new phase of my career, I asked her to breakfast. We knew each other from our involvement with Step Up, a mentoring organization for teen girls. This time, it was me who needed some mentoring, as I was crafting new goals and strategy for my business.
She said yes! It was a power hour, for sure, filled with great advice and insights. Since then, Linda also has provided several valuable referrals, asked me for a blog post, and last weekend, invited me to speak on a panel at Women of the World Festival at the Apollo Theater.
