From Corporate Marketing to Loud Blonde - Meet Kelly Cochran


Welcome to Episode 018 of Corporate School Dropout, an interview with Kelly Cochran.


Kelly began her full-time entrepreneurial journey after a round of corporate layoffs; she took full advantage of the newfound freedom and hit the ground running. She took inspiration from podcasts and other entrepreneurs and wasn’t worried about the fate of her success. Kelly used her natural talents and launch Loud Blonde, a marketing company for female entrepreneurs to find their authentic voice and build a bold presence online. Her first book, LOUD will be out in September 2019 and definitely on the must-read list. Kelly’s interview is fun and lively. We dive into our first jobs out of college, losing friends, binging Netflix, and how we continue to grow and change as our businesses grow. I know you’ll love this episode!
