Tynesha Williams on Talent Versus Growth, and How 'It's Always Right to Be You'

I sit down with the L.A.-based ECD in #BlackTea episode 5

I've got Who's the Boss to thank for introducing Ty Williams, my former boss and forever mentor (not negotiable), to advertising. Ty brings 100 percent of her personality to this episode, where we discuss the joys of pushing pixels in private, the benefit of starting out at a Black agency, and the soothing sounds of her drone. Ty also urges fellow creative leaders to be open to growing people with creative talent outside the industry, and speaks on how being yourself means not laughing at jokes that aren't funny to you. As always, conversation with Ty is refreshingly honest, easygoing and surprising. Meet the woman with no shortage of fun facts to share. Check it out, and hope you enjoy!
