From Ice Cream to Breadwinning with Bethanie Baynes, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Google and Founder of Breadwinning Women
After being drawn to the company by a promise of free ice cream seventeen years ago, Bethanie Baynes is now Google’s Director of Strategic Partnerships. She is also the founder of Breadwinning Women and the host of the Working Wife, Happy Life podcast.
Today, Bethanie joins us to share how she climbed the corporate ladder over the years by establishing and nurturing relationships and how she’s giving back with Breadwinning Women. She talks about the community she wishes she had when she first started at Google and the career-changing piece of advice her first manager at Google ever gave her. She discusses the difference between being reactive and proactive in an interview and shares impactful ways you can share your accomplishments with your manager. She also discusses how you can make running your own business and being the breadwinner work for you.
“People make different choices in life that lead to different outcomes. It doesn’t mean they’re better or worse. It’s just why people are interesting, and that’s why life is interesting.”
– Bethanie Baynes
