The Talent Economy Podcast
Taking Control of Your Career Path
When you think about your career, do you think within the context of your current position? If you were to take into account the kind of life that you want and the things that you most value, how would that redefine your definition of success?
These are the types of questions that today’s guest, Lisa Hufford—author, founder, and CEO—faced when she became a new mother. Driven by a desire for flexibility and freedom to do the work she wanted and to do it where she wanted, Hufford founded Simplicity Consulting in 2006. Simplicity Consulting is the preferred on-demand business consultancy for the new world of work and home to top marketing, communication, and program and project management experts in the Seattle area.
A five-time honoree on the Inc. 5000 list as one of the fastest growing private companies in America and recognized as one of Washington’s largest female-owned companies by Puget Sound Business Journal, Simplicity Consulting is female-founded and run, with an all-female leadership team.
During our conversation, Hufford offers key insights from her first book, The Personal Brand Playbook, and advice on how we can all begin to reenvision our careers on our terms.
