Kaneshi Hart: Security, Insecurity, Risk and Reward

“Every day is a risk, am I going to be disciplined, to get up, to talk to the people that I need to talk to, to reach out to people I need to reach out to, to put myself out there, to build something.”

Bump In The Road:

Kaneshi Hart on The Risks of Entrepreneurship

Security, Insecurity, Risk and Reward: Entrepreneurship


When life throws a curveball, some see a setback, but others like Kaneshe Hart see an opportunity.

Five years ago, Kaneshi was climbing the corporate ladder, enjoying the fruits of a successful career, and traveling internationally. Life seemed set on a promising trajectory. Yet, as many of us have experienced, stability can be fleeting. A series of layoffs, a toxic work environment, and a global pandemic later, Kanesha found herself at a crossroads. She decided to take an entrepreneurial route.

The episode unfolds Kaneshi’s story with raw honesty and vulnerability. She talks about being laid off not once, but twice within two years, and how these bumps in her road led her to question the path she was on, and to wonder what else was out there. Were events  a streak of bad luck or a nudge towards a different calling? Come listen in.

“I wish I could learn the lesson quicker.”


“When we first met, I was sort of in transition, and I really feel like I’m still there, but with a little bit more wisdom and a little bit more direction.”


“I have to realize that where I am currently is a result of every decision that I’ve chosen to make up until this point.”


“You build upon successes.”



Bump in the Road

Everyone hits a bump in the road. The question becomes: What do you do with it?

I share stories about how people experience, manage and navigate life's bumps, hopefully using them as a pivot into a more conscious and meaningful life.
