#231 Elaine Welteroth: On Quitting Your Job & Carving Out A New Path

Elaine Welteroth is an award-winning journalist, author, judge on the new Project Runway TV show and now author of memoir More Than Enough. I quoted her in my book The Multi-Hyphen Method because she is a thriving multi-hyphenate who I often looked to as an inspiration along the way. She was most recently held the iconic position of editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue -- where she in 2017 became the youngest person ever appointed editor-in-chief and in 2012 had been the first African American ever to hold the post of beauty and health director at a Condé Nast publication. Prior to Teen Vogue, she was the senior beauty editor at Glamour and beauty and style editor at Ebony magazine. She’s now a leading expert and advocate for the next generation of change-makers and she is one of my favourite people to follow on Instagram. She has written for the hit show Grown-ish and has appeared on-camera for a range of media outlets including ABC News and Netflix. In this episode we discuss her career pivots and her brilliant book. if you liked it please rate / review!
