Episode 57 – Isobel Wayrick VP at Mars International



Isobel Wayrick hadn’t even begun high school when she received her first paycheck.

When Isobel was 15 years old, she and her parents immigrated to the U.S. with little money. Determined to afford a college education for their daughter, Isobel’s parents got her a part-time job—another source of income for the family. The Scottish teenager would spend that summer filing papers in a stuffy, dusty attic for Sherwin-Williams.

Over 60 years later, Isobel is an accomplished wildlife photographer and vice president of Mars International.

In this episode, Isobel and I share a humorous and warm-hearted conversation about finding avenues for self-expression, taking the leap to becoming self-employed and ultimately becoming financially independent. Learn more about this baby boomer woman who took money into her own hands, all while having fun.
