Network Your Way to Success with Tracie Karasik

Tracie Karasik, Founder and President of TLKmultimedia, joins me to talk about the power of networking and mindset in the journey of success. I met Tracie at a young adults’ networking event shortly after graduating college, and when I decided to pursue entrepreneurship myself about two years later, I looked to her as a real-life example of a millennial woman in entrepreneurship!

In this episode, Tracie shares her insights and wisdom from over seven years in business, from building relationships to mindset. We also shared some of our experiences the way friends do IRL, only while recording this podcast—a side effect of knowing your podcast guests personally 😊
