Her first reinvention happened when she was getting her MBA: the investment bank she was working for was fined and she had to move over to marketing. That’s where she spent her life—working for a toy company, then at a news wire for PR until it was hit by internet disruption. In 2013 Garland put together a conference for entrepreneurs and She Leads Media was born. “Don’t wait to reinvent yourself when the situation arises,” she tells Lesley Jane Seymour, founder of CoveyClub.com. “Be in the mode of always reinventing.” The next She Leads conference takes place on November 22, 2019 (https://www.sheleadsmedia.com/upcoming-conferences-events
) and will be “looking at different business models that benefit humanity.”
Garland suggests entrepreneurs look for alternatives to venture capital when raising money. She suggests crowdfunding and Goldman Sach’s 10,000 Women (https://www.goldmansachs.com/citizenship/10000women/)program which she credits for catapulting her business forward.
