Q&A with Jessika Lora - March 27

Hi Jessika! Did you always envision yourself as being an entrepreneur and what was the defining moment when you told yourself that you wanted to finally break out and create your own company?

Great question! There’s a restlessness threshold that you hit after which point every day that you aren’t pursuing your vision feels intolerable. You may notice yourself picking little turf battles, feeling depressed, irritable, and under-appreciated. I felt this way just before I left Deloitte and just before I left eBay. It’s totally fine to feel this way for a day or two, maybe even a shitty week, but if it becomes your daily norm for more than a month then you know it’s time!

I created an comms consulting/marketing agency focused 100% on using advertising to combat COVID misinformation that is costing lives: we’re called The Auxiliary and you can check us out at resistcovid.com. I’m reaching out because we’re running (our second) hackathon against the infodemic- this time centered around finding creative ways to keep Georgians informed about COVID amidst misinformation and mistrust and an early relaxation of social distancing. Learn more and sign up at infoimmunity.com.

Anyone else? I have a full set up (multiple monitors, standing desk, the whole nine) in my home office, but as often as I can (like when I have a webinar or training to watch) I like to sit on the couch with just the laptop and get the full benefits of puppy snuggles 🥰🥰

I’m a relatively new college hire and recently brushed up my LinkedIn. I started having several headhunters reaching out about different opportunities. It seems like they usually don’t name the actual firm they’re working for or much other relevant detail. I guess it’s because the headhunters are an independent staffing firm? Anyways, any recommendations on how seriously I should take these type of messages or whether to get on the phone with them just to check it out? Could be MBB I guess lol
