It’s impossible to briefly sum up Rahaf Harfoush’s career; and she wants you to know that you don’t have to fit into anyone else’s definition of success, as she’s absolutely created her own. She’s a strategist, digital anthropologist and best-selling author who focuses on the intersections between emerging technology, innovation and digital culture.

From working on Obama’s digital media team during the 2008 presidential campaign, helping identify disruptive-startups at the World Economic Forum, to writing New York Times bestsellers, Rahaf has her finger firmly on the pulse of digital culture. In this episode she talks about the difficulty of measuring success when your work is so varied, speaks from personal experience on the dangers of burnout and explains how to stay creative no matter what industry you’re in.
