Rebekah Bastian is an entrepreneur, writer, artist, tech executive, mentor, wife, mother and aerial acrobat. After 15 years at Zillow, with roles including vice president of product and vice president of community and culture, Rebekah is now CEO & Co-founder of OwnTrail. Rebekah built OwnTrail with the goal reimagining and scaling mentorship to serve all women.

Through micro acts of mentorship, Rebekah believes women can inspire each other and create solidarity around shared experiences. The result helps a diverse range of women see people that look like them in places they aspire to, and embracing the fact that there is no one right path. Rebekah published her first book, Blaze Your Own Trail, in February 2020. This episode, she talks to us about her frame work for mentorship and how to get yourself "unstuck" when you feel in a rut.
