Marguerite O’Neal: Left fear behind to launch thought-leader podcast

Marguerite O’Neal

President & CEO of Marguerite O’Neal Consulting Inc.

I decided to join The Incubator because I was moving from an independent contributor role as the Vice President of H.R. for a pharmaceutical company, to moving into a Presidential role running a company. Being an entrepreneur, I’d never done that before and I wasn’t sure exactly what I was in for and decided to join this program to learn how to do that. It has been very exciting. I can’t believe what I’ve accomplished in such a short time!

I’m working with a group of women who have been there and done that, and also some just starting out. I’m learning from everyone, and it’s really been very exciting. The most significant takeaway for me is that I’ve created a podcast. People in my community know me just through the podcast and it’s just amazing to me. The most valuable part of The Incubator frankly is Eleanor Beaton. She is a wonderful strategist. I am just fascinated to learn from her and to also benefit from all her experiences.
