Telling Your Story Authentically w/ Inc Managing Editor Lindsay Blakeley

Lindsay Blakeley is the managing editor of Inc.com and LA’s Inc. bureau chief. I met Lindsay at an investor-hosted dinner in Beverly Hills a couple of years ago. We realized we had a shared curiosity regarding the human side of startup life. That curiosity resulted in a piece in this September’s Inc. but also in an ongoing conversation around topics surrounding the founder journey. Many of the founders I spend time with as a coach face shared challenges including depression, anxiety, burnout, and questions of whether they are enough (themes I too faced in my own time as a founder and CEO).

Lindsay has spoken with hundreds of founders over her years as a reporter. She is therefore in an interesting position to help us normalize parts of the founder experience that can be hard to see clearly in our own heads. Lindsay also shares some practical advice on how to connect with reporters and share your own story in an authentic way.

About the Podcast

The Sanity Pod
Honest, human stories from the front lines of startup life
It's hard to start companies, it's difficult to lead, and we all have moments where we are convinced everyone else has it pulled together and that we must be the only sucker in the room.

This is a place for those stories and that kind of honesty. Honest, human stories from the front lines of startup life.

The more we are real with one another, the more we are each able to normalize the ups and downs of the entrepreneurial experience. And the more we can each quiet our inner voices of self-criticism and begin to step into the roles we were meant to play.

Thank you for joining us. We are so glad you are here.
