Ep #152: My Market Neutral Approach to Advancing Your Career

The highs and lows of the market are inevitable.

But those highs and lows having the power to totally derail your career are not.

I was working for a hedge fund in Manhattan during the Lehman Brothers crash.

And I can clearly remember having an all-hands meeting with the executives – and they weren’t panicking at all.


Because they practiced market neutrality.

Meaning: they don’t go with the highs and lows of the market.

They take strong economic risks….but they also mitigate those risks.

They walk a middle line.

And this idea of market neutrality is at the core of everything I teach to the corporate badass women I work with.

Which is why my client’s careers aren’t impacted by the highs and lows of the market, either.

When you follow the principles of market neutrality, you can continue to advance your career, no matter what is happening in the economy.

AND you can let go of all the stress and uncertainty because you’ll know you have options AND the ability to always figure things out.

So in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I am going to show you exactly how YOU can achieve market neutrality by always deliberately managing your career.
