Taryn Williams - WWO Podcast Episode 20
THE PURSUIT OF WORLD DISRUPTION
This week I have on the show the smart, stunning and all round epic human - Taryn Williams. Taryn is the definition of a game changer in the world of entrepreneurs and business. She speaks on the subjects with an ease of flow and wisdom of someone well beyond her years.
Taryn started her first company, WINK Models, barely out of her teens and has now grown to become a powerhouse in the Australian Start Up Space. Not satisfied being stagnant, Taryn is 18 months into her second ALL IN venture, the industry disrupting two sided market place - THE RIGHT. FIT.
Miss Williams provides listeners with a refreshingly ruthless aspect to what it takes to be an entrepreneur.
We cover subjects from mentors, to hiring and firing, as well as plenty of insight into the inner thoughts and conversations Taryn has with herself that lead her to living this life of adrenaline seeking start-ups. Taryn's specific essay question was:
"Entrepreneurship is tough. It takes a particular kind of human to even think of beginning their own company, and it takes a special tolerance for torture to want to start that business in the industry of Model and Talent management. You didn’t only do it once, but twice, starting The Right. Fit almost a decade after, and in what has been described as competition to, your first company WINK Models. As a serial entrepreneur, how do you decide the time is right to keep going, pivot, quit or start-afresh?"
I left this conversation with a renewed energy to get out there and get it done. No doubt you will get plenty out of this podcast too.
