On this episode of Impact Michigan, our host Leann Abad sits down with Laura Khalil. Based in Detroit, Laura is devoted to helping women embody the confidence and develop the clarity to speak up, get paid what they’re worth, and lead mission-driven lives. She has spoken to audiences at Creative Mornings, Zingtrain, Consumers Energy, Ladies Get Paid, and Intermitten on courage, entrepreneurship and personal branding. She has also consulted on branding initiatives for GE, Twitter, Intel, Intuit and more.

In this interview with Leann, Laura shares what it’s like being too “empowered” for corporate life, how to learn your own self worth, and how the same traits that got her fired from jobs are what helped her become a successful entrepreneur.

You can hear Laura Khalil’s story and learn more from her expertise in person at Intermitten 2019 on June 4th.
