We had the good fortune of connecting with Hailey Gorski and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Hailey, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk is the catalyst to success; it opens up closed doors.

As a dietetics & entrepreneurship student at UW – Madison, I felt deprived of opportunities that merged my passion of nutrition and social media.

Doors weren’t opening for me. My options were to settle or take a risk or pound the door down myself.

As an undergrad, I took the risk of moving to NY without any income and landed an internship for the TODAY show’s dietitian.

After I started my career, I took the risk of moving to LA on a part time salary found a full time job.

After a few months of living in LA, I took the risk of applying for a job I found on my TikTok FYP and landed a job at the best TikTok strategy company, BarnettX.

Risk is intimidating because it doesn’t guarantee results, but it’s better than settling.

But when you have big goals and dreams, it becomes your only choice!

Instead of steering clear of risk, I faced it head on!

Risks opens doors that have challenged me, excited me, and aligned with my goals!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
There is a pattern across the industries I work in.

As a Dietitian, I see many women chasing rapid weight loss programs that provide short term results.

As a TikTok strategist, I see brands chasing viral videos that provides a brief influx of profile views.

The issue isn’t that they intentionally seek shortcuts, it’s that they lack framework and sustainable strategies!

I’m passionate about problem solving and helping individuals & brands embrace their story, find their “why”, and connect to themselves and the world on a deeper level!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The morning sets the tone for the day, so I’d first take my friend on a hike to get fresh air and see LA from a wider lens! After the hike, we would go to Malibu Farm Restaurant and get a bite to eat.

We would spend the rest of the day at the beach in Malibu and after getting our dose of vitamin D, we’d head back to get ready and enjoy a cocktail and watch the sunset at hotel Erwin!

Nothing beats a night out in Venice, so we would get a bite to eat on Abbot Kinney then pop into a few bars!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Much of my success has been inspired by the Tim Ferriss podcast!

I discovered the Tim Ferriss podcast around 2017 as a student in Madison.

My passion has always been at the intersection of business and nutrition, but I feared that I would never find a career that merged my passions. I asked myself: “Is there opportunity at that intersection, or am I seeking opportunity in a black hole?”

Tim Ferriss interviews world class performers from various areas and dissects their careers.

The interviewee’s eclectic stories inspired me to see white space as an opportunity to become a trail blazer!
