Talking Through a Career of Multiple Exits with Patrice Barber

This week our host Steve McGarry is joined by Patrice Barber, Current CEO and Founder of Career CNX. To start the show Patrice talks about how at an early age she had to constantly adapt to new cultures after living in 7 countries throughout her childhood, and how that led her to being able to adapt in the world of business. As someone who has exited multiple businesses she dives into some of the details of the exits, and some of the lessons she learned throughout them. Steve asks about her feeling burned during a specific exit, and what the time after that looked like before her next venture. Steve asks what advice she would give her younger self, and what she is currently doing with her company Career CNX.

 Patrice has had a successful career with 3 successful exits and over 20 years’ experience in corporate leadership for teams, and building multiple startups with clients spanning five countries and three continents. She currently is the CEO and Founder of Career CNX, which is a data-driven operations leader with a digital transformation focus, dedicated to translating strategic vision into tactical reality, putting the right team members into the right positions to drive revenue and market growth.
