Description

Our video series, SELF MADE STORIES is here! You’ll hear incredible success stories from women who took control of their economic destinies, and each in their own way, became self-made. Imagine not yet being 30 and already having worked on the Sex in the City film, Ugly Betty, at MTV Networks, and wrangled a snazzy DJ career on the side. That was Denise Hewett in New York before she decided it was time to move to Los Angeles and unapologetically disrupt Hollywood. After a slew of incredible job experiences, Denise had a vision for a new kind of marketplace for screenwriters, one that might render the middle-man obsolete. She took the bull by the horns, was willing to walk away from her day-job, and joined forces with experts to create her startup, which she now runs from LA. 4 Lessons to Take from Denise Right Now Connect the Dots of Your Life Denise worked a wide range of jobs (from fashion and PR to music and events), which became the constellation of experience that allowed the essence of her mission, as a producer, to emerge. Push Yourself to Explore What You’re Made Of Denise worked for a nightclub while in college—but instead of treating it like a part-time gig, she managed to raise the company’s sales by 17%. Embrace the Sharing Economy As a DJ, Denise encountered technology that made music sharing easier, which led her to think the same could be true for scripts, an a-ha moment that became the impetus for her business. Hire Experts to do What You Can’t Even though she had a wide range of experience, Denise knew the tech piece of her startup was new territory. She partnered with a technology expert, understanding that as a leader, sometimes the smartest thing you can do is surrender to what you don’t know.
