“The best way to not let people get your attention past office hours is not to give it to them.” Emily White
In my incredible and value packed conversation with Emily, we discussed:
- Why sleep is the secret weapon in her success.
- Why she tries her best to cook and eat locally grown foods (Even though cooking is NOT one of her superpowers)
- How she would solve the gender pay imbalance if she had ultimate authority
- The #iVoted campaign she started that hosts free and awesome concerts for voters and is spreading across the country like wildfire
- And much much more!
So sit back, relax, and enjoy my conversation with Emily White.

15:14 – I love this advice that you give to the world: “Do what you love that helps other people.”
Can you expand on that for me and give some actionable advice on how audience members can not only do what they love but also work in ways that give them the opportunity to serve their fellow man as well?
17:28 – Getting laughed at when you’re following your dreams and doing what you love.
22:03 – In a quote from siimonsander.com you mentioned that as a speaker at a music conference (an area that Emily said has less sexism than other fields and still results in deeply imbalanced numbers) your panel consisted of 93% male and 7% female representation.
If you had ultimate authority on a board tasked with solving this problem, what are the specific actions you would take?
