Today I’m joined by Farryn Weiner, an award-winning branding and marketing leader, a podcast host, and founder at FARRYNHEIGHT.
Farryn’s truth actually started as a lie. As she struggled a lot with math in school, she convinced herself she was terrible at math, and because of that, she’ll never be able to create a successful company. Some inner work and time later, Farryn managed to deal with her fears and discovered that she is pretty decent at math and capable of starting an incredibly successful company. We talked about her journey into becoming a successful leader, the differences between marketing and branding, and storytelling.
Farryn kindly spoke about her relationship with fear and what essentialism means to her.
