With more women than ever rising to the top of their fields, there's never been more inspiration at hand for pursuing your own career dreams. But despite the (much-needed) positive momentum, it's easy to let the fear of failure stop you from taking a risk\u2014which top bosses Francoise Brougher (COO of Pinterest), Karen Plotkin (SVP of Dell), Jenkey Rubio (Co-Founder of Away), and Rose Schooler (Corporate Vice President of Intel) know is key to success. At the 2018 Marie Claire Power Trip conference, an exclusive two-day networking event designed to empower and inform women, the four women shared their own missteps on their paths to disrupting major industries. \u201cI don\u2019t like the word \u2018failure,\u2019\u201d Schooler explained. \u201cIt\u2019s about becoming a better organization moving forward. We can leverage learnings\u2014and build a whole new business around it.\u201d In fact, industry disruption is dependent on missteps, according to Plotkin. \u201cEverything is ripe for disruption,\u201d Plotkin said. Yes, even a multibillion-dollar company like Dell. \u201cIt takes tenacity. Knowing it is the right thing to do and not breaking away from that," Plotkin added. Meanwhile, Away co-founder Rubio doubled down on the importance of staying true to your convictions. \u201cI was friends with so many people in business school that were trying to map out what industries to disrupt,\u201d Rubio remarked. \u201cThere\u2019s no way you can build something successful if you don\u2019t actually care.\u201d In order to revamp your industry, risk-taking has to be built into the daily routine, the women agreed. \u201cThere is no such thing as day-to-day business," Brougher says. "You have to be creative every single day." To that end, Brougher says she makes sure Pinterest is a safe space for her staff to generate new ideas. "I think a good way to really enforce this creativity is to provide a structure,\u201d she noted. \u201cCreativity is unleashed when you provide this canvas.\u201d The four panelists agreed that taking chances is necessary on the road to success, in one way or another. So, with that stamp of inspiration, tell that small voice to go away: You should take the leap, no matter what.
