The following discussion took place at an IVY Ideas Night in Boston, featuring the author and former Editor-in-Chief of Seventeen Magazine, Ann Shoket.

In this live conversation, Shoket draws on both her editorial and entrepreneurial experience to show us what it takes to earn respect and build a supporting network. Referencing her most recent book, The Big Life: Embrace the Mess, Work Your Side Hustle, Find a Monumental Relationship, and Become the Badass Babe You Were Meant to Be, Shoket reveals how we can all achieve our dreams — be that success in the workplace, or making the world a better place for all.
