Khyati Sundaram is the CEO of Applied. She brings us her story about transitioning from Corporate into founding a start-up and then finding herself back on the job market being told her resume “did not fit”. At Applied, she found the perfect fit, a company that valued skills and that was helping other corporates do the same. We also talked about the pandemic, what she missed and what new habits she managed to create. Her advice for 2021? I can’t help repeat it to myself. Be as water.
I used to go to school with Jessica. At Harvard, we met often between parties, travels and class breaks. But this time, we met to talk about life and business.

On her second start-up, Jessica has many learning points to share with us on her journey leaving corporate life and setting up 2 start-ups.

I met Amy a few months back via a common friend. John thought we would like to meet each other and find common interests. He did not explain much. But he was not wrong. Amy has launched a business dedicated to women empowerment – Fem-Foundry. I am passionate about women empowerment. It seemed like a good fit. So today, I decided to bring Amy to the podcast to bring light to our common passion.
I have long wanted to interview Francesca Geens, creator of the Happy Self Journal. She was one of the first women I reached out to during the first season. However, there was a lot going on in the Happy Self Journal world and it was not until I exchanged emails with Francesca about her newest journal edition for 3-6 years old, that we used the opportunity to schedule a date. It was hard to stop our chat, even after we stopped recording! What she is doing for gratitude and children is just the type of thing I love!
