Ingrid interviews Amy Smith who is the Founder of Aligned Tribe. Amy’s organisation specialises in helping organisations to attract, engage and retain their nextGen leaders to ‘bridge the generation gap’ and remain competitive in the rapid changing world of work.
Amy started her first business at the young age of 12 and by age 23 she was working across the globe helping businesses of all sizes to optimise their staffing strategies. Amy has worked ‘behind the scenes’ supporting former CEOs of companies circa $5-100Mil turnover to grow their own portfolio careers in the executive coaching space and has worked with brands such as HSBC, YMCA and the Executive Connection (TEC).
She is a member of the Directors Institute Next Generation Board of Directors and regularly advises organisations as a specialist on Millennials in the workplace, as well as supporting young people in their careers through her coaching, career workshops and online training programs.
When she’s not working, you will find her on the ski slopes when there’s even a glimpse of snow and enjoying some smashed avocado on toast with friends on the weekend, like a true ‘Millennial.’
Some great quotes from Amy during the podcast interview:
‘It’s the first time in history we have 5 generations in the workforce at the same time’
‘Having a continual learning mindset is critical. We cannot know everything – we will never know everything ‘
‘Want to start a business? Be in it for the long haul and begin to take action’

To listen to this interview with Amy Smith:
My guess is that you are here for one of 2 reasons:
Are you curious about what it’s like to start a business?
Do you wonder if you have what it takes? Would your idea work? How much does it actually cost to build a successful business?
Have you been in business for a few months or a year or 2 and things aren’t going quite the way you thought they might?
I’ve written this book to answer pretty much all of your questions “So You Want to Start a Business” and you can download the first 20 pages at www.thestartupsteps.com
My 15 years of experience working with start up and small businesses are condensed into this book.
This is your step by step guide to launch your business smarter and faster. It’s so exciting to be sharing it with you.
