(upbeat music) - I am Megan Holston-Alexander and I'm an investor at Unusual Ventures. There was a time in my life where I would take any job and then there's a different time in my life where I'm very motivated financially, you know, you want to buy a house, you want to start a family, and so you have to make decisions that kind of take you down that path, but as long as you are very clear about what it is that you want at that particular time, I think the path is kind of laid out.
You get really lucky and you can find something that makes you happy and gives you the salary that you need to start your life. While I was in business school, I decided I wanted to make a career change and I knew in order to do that, I needed to get as many reps in as possible and so I did a ton of different internships, and ultimately, one of my internships at Lightspeed Venture Partners turned into a full-time role at Unusual Ventures.
