Give yourself more credit than you want to. Trying anything is usually a decent option. I’m often inherently aware of everything I don’t know, but startup life is not about doing anything perfectly, it is about inching along and making consistent progress.

As part of our interview series called “5 Things I Wish Someone Told Me Before I Became A Founder”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Rachel Serwetz.

Rachel’s early professional experience was at Goldman Sachs in Operations and at Bridgewater Associates in HR. From there, she was trained as a coach at NYU and became a certified coach through the International Coach Federation. Throughout her career, she has helped hundreds of professionals with career exploration and for the past 3.5 years she has been building her company, WOKEN, which is an online career exploration platform to coach professionals through the process of clarifying their ideal job and career path. She also attained her Tech MBA from NYU Stern, is an Adjunct Professor of Entrepreneurship at Binghamton University and has served as a Career Coach through the Flatiron School, Columbia University
