In this episode of the Brilliance Beyond Borders podcast, I speak with the fabulous Uni Yost. Uni is a serial entrepreneur, business and technology visionary, and relationship builder. Uni has been an entrepreneur in technology, consulting, and business for over 20 years. She has led and managed multiple businesses that focus on creating new products and services in multiple industries, such as insurance, finance, healthcare, real estate, banking, mortgages, and more.
Uni was born in South Korea. Today, she is the CEO and founder of GoAskJay, a leading innovative insurance technology, InsureTech, and financial technology, FinTech. GoAskJay is an artificial intelligence-matching platform in a $4 trillion insurance industry that delivers insurance products, and financial products to consumers and small businesses. Uni is leading a majority-women executive leadership team to grow the company in the US and beyond.
We discuss the self-empowerment tools Uni uses in her role as CEO and founder of GoAskJay. Listen to find out how you can apply these rules in your life:
1. Learn about yourself to drive your business purpose
You have to learn about yourself; know your strengths and weaknesses. When you have a startup and you have no money, employees and clients are buying into you, the person behind this idea. You also have to bring the right people into the company to complement your skills. They have to feel the passion, mission, and purpose in order to come along for the journey.
2. Take on many roles
People should take on many different roles in life to find what they really want or are good at. A lot of times people tend to stick to a path that was laid out for them, but we give ourselves too little credit. As humans, we have the mindset and the intelligence to adjust and adapt.
3. Focus on your own vision of success
What is your personal journey? What is it you want to achieve? We get to decide our own success and it’s different for everyone. For some, it’s having their first child, for some, it’s being the first in their family to go to college, or it could be starting their own little coffee shop. It’s all about your own vision of success.”
