In today’s episode of the AskGaryVee show, I talk with Beth Comstock — former vice chair of GE and author of Imagine it Forward: Courage, Creativity, and the Power of Change.
Beth is an all time executive and a really, really kind person. We share a very similar philosophy on the importance of patience, fake environments, how businesses can hire the right people, and more.
Over the years, I’ve heard SO many people say amazing things about Beth behind her back.
In this episode, I think you’ll see why 😉
Here’s what we talk about:
There are a few things I think make this conversation super interesting:
— Beth talks about how — at 30 years old — she was so shy that she had to really push herself to talk to her own boss. So many of you are getting “tricked” by ages like 18, 22, or 30. Many of you don’t realize that you can still be figuring things out at 30, and still achieve unbelievable success in your career.
— I was a D and F student in school, and I truly believe that “losing” in school helped me in real life. We answer a great question about how to teach children that failure is a stepping stone.
— We talk about how a stay-at-home mom can go still back to work and dominate — even if she was out of the workforce for years.
— We talk about our shared beliefs around fake environments, and why it’s my biggest fear when it comes to raising my kids.
