Today’s professionals have more challenges than ever facing them at work and at home, from differences still not fully respected in corporate culture to the impacts of technology (AI) and COVID-19 on health and family needs. As a result, too many rising stars get pushed out of the leadership pipeline, suffer through toxic work situations, or see their careers cut short when companies cut back.

With mounting responsibilities at home, too many talented people fear making a big change and stay too long in a job that is the wrong fit. Go! shows how to listen to those nagging feelings that it is time to change and then make a thoughtful and savvy plan toward a truly fulfilling career. Equal parts validation, empowerment, and guide, in Go! Lisa Thee provides powerful examples of transforming one’s career from a wide array of leaders and from her own experiences. Lisa also outlines a versatile personal 90-day career reboot plan. In addition, Go! opens today’s leaders’ eyes to ways their work culture may need to evolve to keep the best talent and develop diverse leadership for their future.

Navigating Financing & Startups: Mary Grothe
Navigating Forward
May 05, 2021
At 22, Mary started with a Fortune 1000 Payroll/HR company at just $13/hour in an admin role, but quickly acquired the skills and training required to advance into mid-market sales. She rapidly found success by listening to clients and always solving their needs; putting their agenda before her own. Even when Mary's sales approach was the direct inverse of corporate, she knew in her heart what was right, and did the job with integrity and grit - driving results for both herself and her clients.


In 2011, she left to become a business strategist for entrepreneurs and founded Butterfly Creative, LLC. Her vision expanded into youth entrepreneurship education and she eventually went back to the Payroll/HR company serving larger, more complex companies in 2014. Mary left in 2017 after two Top 25 and one Top 10 finish and millions more sold. She returned as CEO to her firm, Butterfly Creative LLC, rebranded as Sales BQ from 2017-2020.

Trust and Safety is a Whole Company Opportunity
Spectrum Labs
April 12, 2021
An investment in Trust & Safety is an investment in user and revenue growth and brand reputation. Not investing in Trust & Safety can lead to severe negative consequences to your community, revenue opportunities, and brand reputation.

Similar to the world of Cybersecurity, everyone who designs, builds, operates, or markets your platform has an impact on user safety and needs to feel that responsibility. Yet, not everyone can be expected to be an expert on what user safety means. So how do you spread the knowledge and make sure people have the information they need?
