Throughout her career, Kendyl Wright was asked to please be quiet. Shut up and follow the rules. It wasn’t going to work for her – and yet this born girl boss loved running the BIG events and experiences that Corporate America gave her access to.
Kendyl talks about starting an experiential marketing business and owning her positions – as loud as she wants.
In this episode, Kendyl shares –
  • how this girl boss named and introduced her new business (here’s the exact announcement email!)
  • what getting “shushed” at work taught Kendyl about work
  • the story of buying a bus on Craigslist for a cross-country tour
  • why you also have to put yourself through it, in order to ask your team to do the same
  • why you have to take the long shots when you’re a small business
  • what you must invest in if you want “big fish” clients
  • working adjacent to Corporate America while maintaining your independence and voice
  • how events and experiences amplify digital marketing efforts
  • what to do when you feel like giving up AND after a big win
  • fighting paralysis when you’re finding new business
