Venetia Pristavec (Ep.19): How a single moment can change everything

Have you ever wondered how a single moment can change everything? Venetia Pristavec is an observer and storyteller. She happened to take a picture of a mattress on her floor and then rented it out to a stranger on the Internet. She then┬ábecame convinced of the power of small human interactions and went on to join that small company, Airbnb, as their 7th employee. She rode that rocket ship for 5 years yet realized that while she was the voice of the company, she didn’t know her own voice. We have a really deep conversation, covering her thyroid cancer, turning into (as opposed to away from) others’ suffering, and why Venetia asks people pleasers about their “relationship with anger.”
