#NotRoutine: Maya Baratz Jordan

headshot-1-3-1Maya Baratz Jordan is a VERY interesting woman. How interesting? Well her CV includes mostly recently being the Head of New Product Strategy and Development at Disney/ABC Television. She is woman that innovates inside the big corporations and has been THE product and media executive that gets a call for for companies as varied as The Wall Street Journal, MTV, Flickr and Monster.com on bringing new-to-market digital products to life. Fun fact before that  in her previous life she was a speechwriter for politicians including a former United States Presidential nominee and front runner.

So how does she use all that knowledge? She helps early stage companies with her big company know-how while also Maya also writing about technology for publications spanning from Fast Company to Fortune. Her is what a day look likes for a very #NotRoutine woman.
