#4: Love in Action with Claude Silver

SPIN IT: Business & Crisis Management with Stephynie Malik

Today on the show Stephynie is speaking with the Chief Heart Officer at VaynerMedia, an emotional optimist, a speaker, writer, and mother, Claude Silver. Silver is the first-ever Chief Heart Officer of VaynerMedia. In 1989, at 19-years-old, Claude was self-admittedly “f*cked up.” She was addicted to drugs. She dropped out of school. She faced incredible hardship. Claude knew she needed to shape up her life at 19. So she quickly took action. Claude considered several options, including the Peace Corps. She ended up finding a three-month Outward Bound program that brought her into the wilderness for weeks at a time. She only had access to a shower once every 18 days! It was during Claude’s time in the wilderness with Outward Bound that she developed the emotional and physical strength she needed to become the Chief Heart Officer at VaynerMedia.
