So I was recently selected to be part of a distinguished group of cable leaders called the “Overachievers Under 30″. Which is actually a really cool honor, but it kind of points to me as a fish out of water. The industry I work in is generally dominated by industry veterans who have been in their positions or learning the ropes for decades. It’s rare to be a younger person in this industry, which actually sucks to be honest. It’s tremendously difficult to command respect from people who are 10, 20, or 30 years your superior. I guess that’s the plight of the millennial though. I just wish there were better ways to foster collaboration and drive execution excellence outside of your age range – then maybe I’d look at awards like this with a slightly different lens? Either way – it’s still a great honor and I will definitely post more here to share my experiences as I meet the other honorees in a few weeks in NYC!
