Gillian Zoe Segal - What It Means to Be Resilient

Gillian Zoe Segal is a photographer and author of two books: Getting There: A Book of Mentors and New York Characters. In this interview, she shares how she got into photography and became a published author (when everyone told her she wasn't ready yet),  and how that led to the creation of her two books. In her most recent book, Getting There, she interviewed some of the most distinguished and sought after people in the world, from Warren Buffet to Anderson Cooper, and shares personal essays about their lives. 

She's a master at getting around gatekeepers and getting in front of the world's most successful people, and we talk about how she does it, the importance of being resilient, and other big lessons she's learned throughout her journey.
