#239 Sarah Ellis (Part 1): Embrace The Squiggly Career

Today's guest is Sarah Ellis who spent the first part of her career working in Marketing & Corporate Responsibility for brands including Boots, Barclays and Sainsbury's. She co-founded Amazing If - as a side-hustle - with her friend Helen Tupper. They describe their path as being accidental entrepreneurs and they recognise that the world of linear and predictable career ladders are disappearing. Instead, careers are now much more 'squiggly', where changing roles, industries and careers frequently and fluidly is becoming the new normal. Together they wanted to help everyone to develop the skills to succeed in a squiggly career in a way that is useful and relevant for today's world of work. Sarah has an MBA with distinction from Warwick Business School and has studied at both London and Harvard business schools.
