7 Questions with Bianca Calhoun Lager
What is your role at Social Intelligence?
General Manager, which basically means I wear all the head-of-department hats - Finance, Marketing, Sales, HR, Product Delivery, Engineering/Tech, Customer Service, etc, etc, etc.....
Where would you like to travel to?
Anywhere I can scuba dive. It's one of the most present and calming physical activities I've ever done and being apart of a whole other world is an incredible experience. Then again I also wouldn't mind drinking wine and eating baguettes in Italy sometime soon....
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
What is your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
Indoors - reading, both turning pages and listening to audiobooks. Outdoors - good old fashion walking. There's nothing like a good walk to clear your mind.
What is your favorite aspect of your job?
Everyday is totally different and full of challenges. I also love public speaking so giving presentations at conferences and pitching to potential clients is fun for me. I thrive in juggling a million tasks and I like being dependable which is a good thing because there is no slowing down around here and everyone always needs something I hope I can help with!
What did you want your adult profession to be when you were a kid?
Astronaut or Ballerina. Still want both.
Fill in the blank: If you really knew me, you’d know _____.
I'm a cynical optimist which means I believe everything is surmountable if you put your mind to it and show up to work at it, but I realistically expect disappointment along the way. I'm a big believer in accepting what is and going full throttle for what you think you can create.
