Today I’m excited to welcome Terra Winston to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

Terra Winston is a leadership consultant and executive coach with 20 years of business consulting experience and an MBA from Stanford. Her clients have included Google, PepsiCo, BP, Millers Coors, and The Dallas Cowboys.

Terra realized early on in life the importance of a great education thanks to her parents, who modeled persistence and tenacity for her. She followed suit and became the girl who always got good grades and did everything right.

But while pursuing her MBA at Stanford, Terra struggled to determine what the smart thing was for her to do when all her classmates were launching major tech businesses in Silicon Valley. Her passion told her that there was something different for her, but her mind told her that if she didn’t go for it at that time, she may miss out.

After trying to avoid those voices for a while, she eventually decided to listen to what her intuition was telling her and started doing the kind of work she had always felt passionate about.

Terra now runs her own business and has had the privilege of impacting hundreds of lives and careers through her leadership programs and coaching. She has found a way to channel her passions into success in multiple industries, from engineering to human resources, Corporate America to entrepreneurship.
