When it’s time to take a leap of faith, what holds you back? Think of how much more you could accomplish if you weren’t afraid to leave your comfort zone. In this episode of the Int-HER-rupt podcast, your host Linda Yates sits down with Marianne Lentini, a private investigator with over 25 years of experience investigating white-collar crimes, and the CEO of Evidence PI. Lentini has taken big, calculated risks, and those bold moves have brought her to where she is today.

 Lentini’s Background

  • Went to school to be a lawyer and began working in that field
  • When the opportunity to try being a private investigator arose, she decided to take the risk from a safe, stable field into one that is more dangerous
  • Later, she also took another risk and started a company (Evidence PI)

 How Do You Decide Whether to Take a Big Risk?

  • Go with your gut. Use your intuition to guide you – when you have a feeling like, “I should definitely do that,” trust your instincts
  • If the risk you take has repercussions that could cause harm to someone else, avoid those risks
  • Think about what the impacts on you will be if things don’t go well, and take precautions to reduce negative outcomes

 3 Tips for Safety from a PI

  1. Don’t put yourself in situations you can’t get yourself out of.
  2. Stay aware of your surroundings – don’t stare at your phone, know where exits are.
  3. Don’t let yourself get too paranoid. 

 “So much of it is knowing not just what you know, but knowing what you don’t know and just finding those people to fill those roles. You CAN run a business. You CAN take on the world… You just have to find the right people and they will lift you up and make you successful.” – Marianne Lentini
