When you reach your 50s and 60s, you know what you want. It’s the “I don’t care what people think” age. Life is a path with many wrong turns, but these missteps help us recognise a theme; look for this theme and connect it to your passion. For example, I used to work as an engineer on the NASA Space Shuttle programme before moving to the music industry and then into the world of venture capital. I now apply all the skills and experience I’ve accrued to my own investment firm, The 22 Fund. At my non-profit, We Are Enough, I aim to educate and activate women, and I firmly believe that everything I do fosters diversity, inclusion and equity in the business world. We women are open to new ideas, welcome everybody and value teamwork. Instead of pleading with men to invest in women, we need to invest in women ourselves.
