Join Brittany Willis, MBA and Chief Privacy Officer of Fortune 500 McKesson Corporation, Faith Knight Myers, Esq. - as they mutually explore their journeys of bringing their Blackness into corporate spaces, how they developed the comfort and confidence to show up authentically Black, and listen as they assert why professionalism and Blackness can coexist and in fact, are one in the same.

The Life of the 9-5preneur

What does it take to be a 9-5preneur? It is not just the combination of the 9 to 5 and entrepreneurship but it the intersection of a career built on intentionality and the transference of those honed skills into a space where our passions and interests forge a new path. In this episode, Brittany invites Whitney Gates, Brand Marketer and Co-Founder/CEO of WONDRY®, an emerging beverage brand focused on disrupting the wine industry, experiencing explosive growth within retailers like Target.

This episode's interview not only provides critical insight on how to balance both successfully and guidance for those 9-5preneurs seeking to make a corporate exit into entrepreneurship full time, it also addresses a range of career, start-up, and entrepreneurial topics geared at fortifying Protégé to Pro listeners of all professional backgrounds.

Insecurities Don't Scale When we are climbing the career ladder or building brands/companies of our own, we do not have time for insecurities to derail our focus by presenting the fallacy that we are not prepared or worthy of abundance. If we aren't careful, past disappointments and traumas will take their seats alongside us in boardrooms and on investor calls. In this episode, Brittany, alongside Founder of Black Girl Black Coffee and Dean of Sisters Chapel at Spelman College, Rev. Neichelle Guidry, Ph.D., will explore how insecurities can show up in our vocations, the ways in which, if we aren't careful, they can hold us back from career growth and business expansion, and how we can co-exist with prior disappointments and continue navigating to success.
From Climbing Their (Corporate) Ladder to Building My Own In her pilot episode, Brittany introduces the Protégé to Pro podcast, recounts the critical point of her whirlwind corporate career that took her from settling for burnout and an exclusive career climb to chartering her own path as an entrepreneur/franchise owner, and explores the realities of business ownership during a pandemic and the Great Resignation with Chick-Fil-A Franchise Owner, Kareem Edwards. She ends the episode with her inaugural “Cracks of Gold” segment which will empower listeners to pause and take stock of areas they have to be grateful for despite life's challenges.
