When Laurie Segall first started at CNN as a journalist, she was basically working in the equivalent of “Scriberia” from “Inventing Anna.” But instead of getting discouraged, Laurie used that opportunity to build out CNN’s tech coverage, and created a new role at the company in the process. And she ultimately became CNN’s senior technology correspondent. This week, Laurie shares how she used her different jobs - good and bad - as stepping stones to work towards the career she wanted. Now, Laurie’s her own boss, as the founder and CEO of Dot Dot Dot, a media venture exploring technology through the human lens.
In this episode, Laurie shares:
- How she turned disappointment into motivation
- How she networked her way into major interviews with tech CEOs
- Why every job (even the bad ones) can get you closer to your career goals
- Why she decided to leave CNN and start her own company
