A local Flagler Palm Coast High School graduate is going to be interviewed by Megyn Kelly on the Today Show.
Kristen Hadeed, who graduated from FPC in 2006, will appear on the popular NBC show on Friday, Oct. 20, to promote her new book, “Permission to Screw Up,” which was released by Penguin Books on Tuesday, Oct. 10.
In the book, Hadeed discusses how she learned to lead “by doing almost everything wrong” as she took her Gainesville cleaning business, Student Maid, from a living-room-based startup to a local powerhouse.
The company only hires students.
“Our culture is all about teaching students how to be better leaders,” Hadeed said. “The whole goal is that when they leave our company, they’re better than when they came in.”
Hadeed, who has also given two TEDx Talks, said she feels a bit nervous to be interviewed on national television but can’t wait for the opportunity.
“I really like the direction of Megyn Kelly’s show,” she said. “I think it’ll be a good experience.”
