It turns out that the Beatles were right - love is all you need. But not in the way you’d think. This week’s guest, WISE100 winning trailblazer Andrea Gamson, explains how radical self love was the key to her career success and to overcoming imposter syndrome. Andrea and I also take down the myth of true love and dive into why no one talks about how being single is actually, like, fine? Andrea is the Co-Founder and CEO of Social Starters, a network that facilitates mentorship and training between business consultants and start-ups with the overall goal of promoting sustainable entrepreneurship. That sounds wordy and corporate on the outside, but the story of how this became Andrea’s goal has many twists and turns, including why she wrote letters to prisoners at HMP Brixton for two years of her life. Treat yourself to this compelling episode over a cup of coffee and possibly a biscuit - things are about to get radical.
