Carrie Sheffield dreams really big. And she doesn’t just dream, she takes action. Her big, hair, audacious goal (some call it a “BHAG”) was creating a media empire in BOLD Media.
She’s getting there and it’s awesome to watch from pretty close by. I’ve known Carrie for many years on the DC media scene, but we only recently spoke more personally, and it’s been a treat. She’s a truly, genuine person to respect and quite the role model for young women today.
“We exist because we want to build the beloved community that Martin Luther King spoke about….the concept of beloved community, we believe that exists here and now and it’s our responsibility to build that everyday.”
In today’s episode, we talk about how she went from a DC intern to writing op/eds for some of the nation’s most well-known newspapers, speaking to thousands and starting her own media company.
BOLD isn’t just any old platform. It seems to bring diverse minds together to talk about difficult issues in a civil and respectful way. You can find panels live on BOLD throughout everyday, featuring people of all colors and ideologies.
As the company partners with more publications, organizations and potentially TV networks, there’s no doubt you’ll be seeing BOLD on your screen in the near future if you haven’t already. Carrie is living out her dream beautifully — and psst, she was just featured in the Wall Street Journal column, “The Secrets of Wealthy Women.”
