46: "Don’t be Precious About Your Work" with Lily Herman, Writer, Editor, & Digital Strategist
By the age of three, Lily Herman was certain about one thing: she wanted to do and be all the things. Fast-forward to today and she’s basically achieved her toddler dreams. Lily is a contributing editor at Refinery29 covering news and politics, the founder of Rogue Sunday, a digital strategy and marketing firm, and the creator of Get Her Elected, a network of over 2,100 people offering their skills pro bono to progressive women candidates running for U.S. office. Oh, and she also happens to be my favorite person to follow on Twitter.
On this episode, Lily shares how she chooses what to work on next (whatever sounds interesting and gives her new skills), how she maintains a thick skin when her work is critiqued or a project fails (by removing her ego from the equation), and how she keeps the Twitter trolls from bringing her down (regular breaks and not being afraid to block people.)
Lily Herman is a writer, editor, and digital strategist. She currently works as a contributing editor for Refinery29 covering news and politics, and her work has been featured on Teen Vogue, Allure, Glamour, and more.
She also founded Rogue Sunday, a no-nonsense digital strategy and marketing firm that specializes in editorial strategy and content creation, audience engagement, and media outreach.
In her volunteer work, Lily runs Get Her Elected, a network of over 2,100 people offering their skills pro bono to progressive women candidates running for U.S. office.
