Becoming Brave Enough for Comedy with Sarah Cooper on Hack the Process, Episode 29

It takes courage to be funny, and Sarah Cooper can tell you all about it. She left a comfortable position in management at Google to become a writer and a stand-up comedian. But she took inspiration from her work, sharing a series of comics and blog posts with her observations about office behavior that eventually led to a publishing deal and her first book, “100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings.” In this episode, Sarah will tell us about how she drew on her childhood dreams to validate the difficult choice to change careers, the value of sharing imperfect ideas early instead of waiting to refine them, and how she’s adjusting to the transition from employee to entrepreneur.
