Manage episode 296271927 series 2310475
We are joined by Lillian Pierson, a very well-known figure in the data space. She started her own business as a data consultant around 2013 and eventually started helping others become better data leaders and entrepreneurs. Currently, she has helped train and educate over a million data professionals! Lillian is not only a great data business mentor, she is also the CEO of Data Mania and a data product manager.
She touches on the exponential growth the data science industry has had in the past few years and shares how hard it was for her to get useful data content online when she first started. That’s part of why she is interested in helping others and making knowledge available to everyone.
- "I've been able to reach and help train and educate over a million data professionals. I turned the business on its face a bit, I have a community of 650,000 data professionals. So instead of working as a data consultant, I started helping other data professionals become better data leaders and entrepreneurs. And so that is, that has been the core focus of our business for two years, and I'm committed to that not changing in this business ever."
- "You know people can learn how to be successful, they can learn how to create a successful product, how to run a successful business, how to make a difference in their career. So you show them the processes and the steps that they need to take in order to do that."
