Behind the Scenes with Lauren O'Brien
Cloudastructure's Lauren O'Brien talks knowing when to move on, being impactful with one's time, and why she believes the world is magical.
I've had the opportunity to connect with and learn from executives of major brands at MediaPost's Insider Summits. In the process I've discovered some truly impressive women, and not only for the work they do but their stories behind the scenes. With Brand Insider: BTS, I get to pull back the curtain on some of the most influential women marketers as they talk about their path to success: the twists and turns, obstacles, inspirations and the valuable lessons learned along the way.
“I would tell young women to go for what you want, what you love and what you're good at, not to be deterred.” So if you want to pursue a competitive, traditionally male-dominated field, Cloudastructure’s Lauren O’Brien says ignore the naysayers and go for it. The chief revenue officer also encourages people to set higher goals, you just may be surprised. In this episode of Brand Insider: BTS, Lauren tells me that if you envision what you want, and truly believe, then you can make it happen. She also shares how becoming a mom was a turning point in her career, why risks are worth taking, and why she has no regrets. You can watch the video of the entire conversation here:
