Fail, Brag, Pivot:
three keys to success

Refreshments Provided
[/one_third] [one_third centered_text=”true”]

Most people will probably tell you the key to success is hard work. Or conscientiousness. Or maybe humility. And while these traits are probably admirable in your career (and your relationships), they overlook the three traits that seem to be shared by all truly successful people: being willing to take risks, promote your work, and change course when necessary.
Meet Christina Wallace, an American entrepreneur who has made “Fail, Brag, Pivot” her personal motto and hear her story from the Metropolitan Opera to Harvard Business School to a (failed) tech startup to the American Museum of Natural History. She’s been interviewed for and profiled in over 20 major publications, and she can explain why an opera singer (who can code) is the perfect choice to lead a major initiative
