What her company does: Archives digital communications for corporate clients

What you can learn from her: Rogers, who left a lucrative career in law to help turn Global Relay—then a fledgling startup—into an internationally renowned player with a seriously impressive client roster (including 22 of the world’s top 25 banks), is big on the notion of work-life integration. “I enjoy the work I do,” says Rogers. “Being an entrepreneur means accepting that there is often no concrete divide between work and life. A vast amount of Global Relay’s vision and strategy has been created while [I was]climbing the Grouse Grind or trail running in the North Shore Mountains.”
