What does the workday of a “head of strategic communications” look like?
For Genius’ Nat Guevara, the day includes sweetened, Cuban-style java, collaboration with team members and the occasional cold email. She shared her insights from a career in communications in our latest installment in our Day in the Life series.
Here’s how she stays sharp, and whose opinion she has learned to trust:
If I’m being virtuous, I try to wake up at 6 a.m. so I can squeeze in a run at the park by my apartment, or even just quietly read a book for half an hour (so peaceful!). Honestly, though, most days it’s 7 a.m. Listening to a podcast while I get ready is my one consistent daily ritual. I’ve been obsessed with this limited audio series called, “The Ballad of Billy Balls.” A lot of twists and turns. I highly recommend it.
One at my desk while I go through emails: hot coffee in a tall glass, half-and-half, and two sugars. I’m Cuban, and we love our coffee very sweet. There’s a joke that we take coffee with our sugar.
