She was also recognized as the world’s No. 1 Communication Coach by the Marshall Goldsmith Leading Global Coaches Awards. 

Dorie is the author of the fantastic marketing strategy trilogy: Entrepreneurial You, Reinventing You and Stand Out, which was named the No.1 Leadership Book of 2015 by Inc. Magazine. 

She has a new book coming out this September called “The Long Game” - How to be a long-term thinker in a short-term world.

Lara and Dorie cover Dorie’s escape from small town North Carolina to higher education and then stints as a reporter and working at a small non-profit, where she realised that it would be less risky to start her own business. 

Dorie explains how she learnt about how to run a business and how she got the idea for her first book, “Reinventing You”. 

She then talks about writing “Stand Out” to help experts crack the code to getting their ideas into the public domain. 

Dorie describes how she wrote “Entrepreneurial You” to understand how to create multiple revenue streams and spread the risks associated with losing one’s main source of income little knowing how prescient it would be for the pandemic world we find ourselves in. 

She then talks about her new book, “The Long Game” and how it applies to the legal profession and what young lawyers should think about.

Dorie also covers podcasting, blogging, leaving margin in your calendar for emergencies, and an interesting fact about handstands.
