What drives fulfillment and success in career and life? If you ask Elisa Schmitz, author of the new book Become the Fire: Transform Life’s Chaos into Business and Personal Success, one of the top answers she’ll give you is curiosity. That’s because it was curiosity that sparked her first business, a website for expectant mothers, that she launched shortly after graduating from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern. And it was curiosity that drove her to grow that website into iParenting, a leading website for parents, that was acquired by Disney. Her curiosity then sparked her second business, 30Seconds, an inspirational lifestyle website hosting millions of unique users every month.
Being curious enabled Elisa to solve problems, overcome setbacks, and view failure as a lesson – allowing her to stay nimble and to pivot along her journey. Join Elisa virtually on October 25, 2022, 12 to 1 pm CT, for an insightful talk via Zoom about why you need to stay curious and be a lifelong learner to fuel your resilience and accomplish your goals.
