In this exciting new thought leadership series, industry leader, tech marketing entrepreneur and investor Bondilyn Jolly interviews inspiring professionals to "get to know the person behind the professional." The basic premise is that underneath the professional, the title, the paycheck, and the prestige is a person with hopes, dreams, fears and a lifetime of inspirational and motivational stories that have led them to where they are today.
With each guest, Bondilyn conducts a series of interviews that are then presented in a variety of consumable formats: podcast, video, written and photographic. To kick things off, Bondilyn's first interview features a well-known face in real estate, Molly McKinley. Below is a snippet from this interview, along with links to enjoy the complete experience.
Setting the Scene (in Bondilyn's words) About three years ago, a woman approached me on a convention showroom floor and said, "I have had three people ask me today if I have met Bondilyn Jolly, so I figured I better come meet you!" and so began my relationship with the fabulous Molly McKinley.
At the time of our initial meeting, Molly was serving as the CMO at Adwerx and I was immediately captivated by her enthusiasm and surprised that with so many mutual relationships it took the two of us so long to connect. She has since reinvented herself a few times over, most recently launching Intentionaliteas, her first personal business venture. I've followed this endeavor closely since the beginning and continue to be impressed with Molly's focused business vision that aligns so perfectly with her spiritual beliefs and life mission—to live with intention.
