Second Life: Podcast Review

November 29, 2019

As someone who lives and breathes the world of startups and technology, the worlds of fashion and entertainment have always seemed very foreign. What I didn’t realize - and what this podcast showed me - is that there are incredible female entrepreneurs behind so many of the most popular fashion and lifestyle brands, and like most entrepreneurs, they started in a very different place than they are now.

Second Life, hosted by WhoWhatWear’s Hilary Kerr (someone I had never heard of before listening on a friend’s recommendation), interviews celebrities (Mandy Moore, Jessica Alba, Lauren Conrad) and entrepreneurs about their Second Life - their career pivot, and how they got to where they are today. For anyone who’s had a pivot in their own career - or who has no idea what they want to do in 5 years - it’s a great reminder that you can’t always anticipate where your career will go. Also, as a commoner, it’s refreshing to hear celebrities talk about the same challenges we face in our careers - although, let’s be honest, they’re probably wearing much nicer shoes while they talk. This isn’t heavy-hitting journalism, but it’s entertaining, and inspirational for anyone looking to get out of a career rut.
