Because we love a good story about women disrupting the status quo…
Lorrie Norrington was once told she would be hired for her admin skills but not her ideas.
Lorrie turned down the job and enrolled in business school.
Money was tight, but she was enterprising. She tutored and sold firewood to pay tuition.
With degree in hand, Lorrie landed her first job with General Electric – the beginning of a 20 year career with GE.
Today, Lorrie is a Silicon Valley vet and Operating Partner at Lead Edge Capital. She sits on the board of HubSpot, Autodesk, DIRECTV, and TaskRabbit.
Anything is possible.
Oh, by the way
PS: Lorrie Norrington is speaking at the upcoming Inbound event, along with many other inspirational women.
