It's amazing what a few years of encouraging people to laugh both with and at you can do for your business acumen. Before I advanced my career as a female digital marketer and chair of the L'Oréal USA Women in Digital program, I dabbled for a few years in stand-up comedy. I'm not talking improv here but the brazen kind where you have to perform original content in front of complete strangers and pray that you don't fall off the stage. But, after getting more traffic on my website than audience members at my gigs, I realized the world of technology and entrepreneurship was my true stage.
