Hi! We are Eddy and Brittany.
We spent years working at shitty companies, feeling frustrated by leaders who didn’t “get it” or frustrated with ourselves for our own seeming inability to be heard and make a difference.
Then we decided to start our own company. After all, if the places we worked for couldn’t get it right, surely we could learn from their mistakes and do better -- right?
As it turns out, it was hard. Far harder than we could have possibly imagined.
Building a business is hard. Sticking with it month to month in the startup stage is hard. Learning to communicate about how we communicate is hard. Working through challenging situations with clients and team members is hard. Finding clients is hard. Learning how to lead authentically and effectively is hard.
LeaderVest is born out of this place of struggle. It’s our response to the challenges we’ve seen and experienced in the workplace, in nonprofits, and in our own leadership capacities.
