Ep. 66: Personal Branding w/ Fancyfied (Part 2)

April 30, 2019

The chat with Fancy was literally overflowing with gems, it had to become a two-parter!

Continuing last week's conversation about personal branding Lisa Francoeur Mesa of Fancyfied is shedding light on the steps you can take to first set your own "personal company culture and values". Why does this matter? Because When you have our yown personal company values we are better able to share it with others and then attract the right opportunities, i.e. the right advisor, that perfect job, that ideal research area.

And also important, Lisa shares how your personal company culture and values helps you to remain authentic and genuine in every space you occupy, not just the academic space.

A little more about Lisa aka Fancy:
