- My name is Lydia Musher. Great to meet you!
- Background: I’m a successful parallel entrepreneur, former business-school professor, and mother of four. I have all kinds of fancy degrees and credentials.
- My message: I want to inspire people to work with and support their loved ones, even if they think they’re not “supposed to.” I think it would make the world a better place, making people happier and more successful in their work, too.
- Location: United States
- Available for: In-person and remote interviews, but probably mostly remote for now 😉
- Marriage and partnership
- Siblings and large family dynamics
- I have always heard that it’s a really bad idea to work with friends and family. Isn’t it risky to work with people we love?
- You say that the wealthiest and most powerful people work with their friends and family. Is it true they get an advantage by ignoring this advice?
- None of my friends or family members does what I do. Can I still work with friends and family members when we do completely different types of work?
- How can I help my family not only survive this Covid/work-from-home/homeschool time but come together more?
- There are a million parenting books out there. They all focus on raising one kid at a time. Isn’t it easier to focus on one kid at a time than trying to raise teams of kids who work together and support each other?
- You’re a fan of the Free Range Kids movement. What does that have to do with raising teams of kids?
- I have always avoided investing in companies founded by loved ones. Do you think I’m missing out on potential returns?
- Can an investor evaluate a family or friend partnership to determine whether that investment is riskier than average?
- How can I use lessons from successful family teams to improve the return of all of my portfolio?
- Social media platforms, currently small but in development.
- Custom co-branded quiz or workbook for each podcast that invites me. Your guest will be able to download it and share it with their friends — with your approval, of course.
- I’m open to any other ideas that have worked with your previous guests, as well.
I am brand new to podcasts, but I have seven years as a business-communication professor at a top-20 U.S. business school, lots of storytelling and public speaking experience, and a warm sense of humor.
