ABC's Rebecca Jarvis joins us today for Market Monday, where she gives us all the updates on the stock market and business news. Today we talk about how President George H.W. Bush's death is impacting the market, the Marriott data breach, American car trends, and holiday shopping.
Rebecca is the Chief Business, Technology and Economics correspondent for ABC News. She is also the Host, Creator, and Managing Editor of Real Biz with Rebecca Jarvis.
Rebecca has a new episode of her podcast "No Limits" coming out tomorrow. Rebecca Jarvis speaks with the world's most influential women about how they built their empires -- from their earliest mistakes to their riskiest decisions to the worst advice they ever received to the moments that finally changed everything. New episodes every Tuesday morning.
This week her guest is Kirsten Green: From Practical to Personal. Green is the venture capitalist behind Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James, Emily Weiss’s Glossier, Tyler Haney’s Outdoor Voices and dozens of other companies. Throughout her life, she has always classified herself as a practical and number-oriented individual. Instead of taking a year off after college, like many of her friends, Kirsten opted for a more financially stable route. She took a job at Deloitte & Touche, earned her CPA and later went on to work in investments for Banc of America Securities during the rise of the dotcom bubble. But due to consolidation across the banking industry, Kirsten’s team was dismantled, leaving her panicked and completely up-ended. On this episode, Kirsten discusses the period of internal reflection that occurred after being laid-off, leading to a revelation of her love for people and relationships. She discusses her decision to take a leap of faith, pursue her own business, ultimately leading her to start Forerunner Ventures, a venture capitalist firm dedicated to partnering with ambitious entrepreneurs. Kirsten opens up about the obstacles she faced on her path to success, and how, in a way, she feels the whole world has been her mentor.
