Today we welcome publisher, writer, editor and author, Karen Rinaldi. Karen is the publisher of Harper Wave, an imprint she founded in 2012, and a senior vice president at Harper Collins Publishers. Harper Wave publishes broad based nonfictions from health and wellness, to lifestyle, to inspiration. While Karen has worked in the publishing industry for over two decades, this is her first time in the role of novelist. Her latest book, The End of Men, is something she worked on for over four years and inspired the story for the 2016 commercial film, Maggie’s Plan.
Karen is one of those women who might appear to “have it all“ but is not afraid to tell you when she sucks at something. In fact, she encourages sucking at something. So much so, that The New York Times even published her article on why sucking at something is so great. Today we talk about Karen’s journey – learning to surf at 40, what it means to “have it all,“ the role of men, authenticity, agency and the liberation of what we have come to know today, as failure. Take a listen!
