Lesley Jane Seymour: 1st Life - Print Publisher, 2nd Life - Digital Communicator

Here's a woman who has more even after More!

For those of you who don't recognize her name, Lesley Jane Seymour was the last Editor-In-Chief of More magazine before it folded this past February.  Another victim of the digital age - is what remains - but Lesley was prepared this time. She had already been let go as Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire magazine ten years earlier when all she grabbed on her way out was her Rolodex.  This time Lesley grabbed her digital device and started posting on social media and thankfully was left less adrift than before.  Her lesson learned and her advice to to hers is to continually build your own brand and have a reinvention plan ready to go no matter what your current career or job situation.  "The good news is that with preparation, losing your job today no longer means losing your identity: it can mean a new start—for a new you," so says Lesley, the new CEO of Lesley Jane Seymour, LLC.
