Don’t miss Like A Boss Girls’ exclusive interview with Monica Rivera!// Monica Rivera is the founder and host of “You Wanna Do What?!,” a podcast about reconnecting with yourself and exploring your interests, ideas, and dreams. Monica encourages her listeners to pursue the items on their bucket list through her relatable stories and strategies. Her podcast also features candid interviews with inspirational go-getters who have taken big risks with extraordinary results.
This first-generation Latina spent 15 years feeling stuck and creatively unfulfilled in her marketing job in New York City before deciding to take a leap of faith into the world of podcasting. Monica’s decision paid off —and she uses her show as a platform to empower others to grow through personal exploration.
Monica is on a mission to empower 100 women to launch and grow their own podcasts by 2020. As a self-taught podcaster, she has made all the mistakes that come with starting a podcast so you don’t have to. Her approach involves giving professional women permission to pursue their personal goals through relatable stories and practical solutions. “You Wanna Do What?!” is a platform for the expression of those underlying hobbies, interests, and creative endeavors that often get pushed aside.
Podcasting is her jam, but Monica also loves speaking about marketing analytics, why curiosity is essential for growth, and why companies have a responsibility to encourage self-care. Learn more about Monica and hear her story on episode 57 of our Mind of a Mentor podcast.
