Full Description

Kate Isler's incredible story demonstrates how women can stop self-selecting out of opportunities and take the leap of faith to accomplish their dreams.

Kate Isler navigated the male-dominated culture of the technology industry, breaking new global markets for Microsoft in their fast-paced, hyper-growth startup years in some of the most challenging regions in the world - all without a college degree or resources that many believe are necessary for success.

Kate's story is a fascinating adventure from her years as a naïve young adult through her unexpected global career at a time when corporations weren't hiring women to represent their companies overseas.

In Breaking Borders, Kate candidly shares:

  • Her moments of success, failure, and very public mistakes.
  • The struggle she faced to pivot her career in a completely new direction.
  • How she overcame the disappointment of a failed startup by channeling her passion for supporting women.
  • Her mission to inspire other women by building Be Bold, a women's advocacy non-profit, from the ground up.

Kate's story is a guide for women who want to stop self-selecting out of opportunities because they assume they don't have the right education, connections, or skills to take a chance.
