The Diversity You Can’t See & Becoming a Leader, with American Underground GM Molly Demarest

Molly Demarest is the General Manager of American Underground Startup Hub in Durham NC. Throughout her career, she has grown into leadership of the American Underground team and mentorship of aspiring entrepreneurs.

But when she was growing up, she could never have guessed she’d be this successful.

With a learning disability and ADHD, Molly knew she had a different way of learning.

But unfortunately, many of her teachers didn’t embrace the difference, so she also thought she was dumb.

On today’s episode of Hustle Unlimited, Molly talks about neuro-diversity and other types of diversity you can’t see, how she became a leader, why personal health is so important, and the mission of American Underground.

The Donald Thompson Podcast is hosted by Walk West CEO, mentor, investor, and Diversity and Inclusion Consultant Donald Thompson.

Music for this episode provided by Jensen Reed from his song, “You Can’t Stop Me”.
