Lani Rosales Lani Rosales LinkedIn Profile Check Lani out on LinkedIn

Lani Rosales is the COO of The American Genius (news network for entrepreneurs + SMBs), Co-Founder of the Big Ass Social Happy Hour (monthly networking event), and Founder of ADJ (Austin Digital Jobs – wild, massive Facebook Group) as well as the newly added RDJ (Remote Digital Jobs).

She has nearly 20 years of experience in marketing communication, media relations, social media, community building, entrepreneurship, and finding the perfect meme.

Lani graduated from the University of Texas with a B.A. in English, used that go go into marketing (uh, what else!?) and it took a few years, but found a home in the business reporting world as fast as she could.

Best Mentee Fit:

Lani is most suited for long-term engagements. She is LGBTQIA+ and POC friendly. Lani is looking for individuals who are kind, aren’t adverse to a few curse words, think creatively, and understand that she’s not a therapist (per Lani “because I already need like 12, so I can’t fix your life but I can walk with you on this journey that is your wonderful career!”). She believes career level matters less than willingness to be receptive and accountable. Humor is a big bonus and takes the pressure off both sides of the mentor/mentee relationship.
