About this video

Whitney Johnson has one question in mind: did I show up? She ushers us through several stories in which she and her loved ones have been challenged in their quest to make their dreams a reality. From the day of her brother’s birth, to a Kohl’s parking lot, to the bustle of Wall Street and to the hard streets of Uruguay, Whitney has found that it is only by showing up that our dreams can find us.


Whitney Johnson dared to disrupt herself when she began her Wall Street career as a secretary, eventually rising to become an Institutional Investor-ranked sell-side equity analyst. She is currently a regular contributor at Harvard Business Review, Co-Founder of Clayton Christensen’s investment firm Rose Park Advisors’ Disruptive Innovation Fund, and is the author of, DARE-DREAM-DO: Remarkable Things Happen When You Dare to Dream (Bibliomotion, May 2012). When Whitney’s not picking stocks, she invests in people, concepts and dreams at daretodream.typepad.com. She is married to Roger Johnson, and they are the parents of two children.
