S3 Ep 2: Find Your Freedom

featuring Laquel Chester


In today’s episode, Laquel Chester Wright joins us for a great conversation on how she managed to outgrow the Silicon Valley grind after fifteen years.

Laquel is a nerdy, tech-loving black woman from the Bay who has embraced her calling to be an entrepreneur. Her passion is helping women reignite their confidence and regain their freedom by breaking away from the 9-to-5 and living life on their terms.

🌱 In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • All about Laquel’s journey leaving marketing and tech jobs in Silicon Valley to follow her true calling.
  • How navigating both the pandemic and her mom’s breast cancer diagnosis last year pushed Laquel to trust her instincts, make some major changes, and do what she loves.
  • Laquel’s advice if you find yourself in the grind.
  • How easy it is for high-achieving women to feel guilty when we want to take a break (and how tempting it is to hide out in the doing)!
  • The importance of setting boundaries and taking baby steps along your journey of outgrowing the grind.
