Podcast Of The Week: True Fiction Project: A Case Study On Anna Delvey/Anna Sorokin

Do you know the story behind this girl who scammed an entire city? 🤨


Anna Delvey is an opportunist. She's accused of scamming people out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, but no one denies that she's smart and stylish. 💁‍♀️


In 2021, this case became one of the most famous major fraud cases. Yet, how did a con artist manage to intrigue and charm so many people?


This #PodcastOfTheWeek is for entrepreneurs and anyone interested in the Anna Delvey story. Host Reenita Hora and guest Diann Wingert dive deep into Anna's story and dissect the psychology of a master manipulator. 🧠


They explore how Anna's personality pathology develops, what sets entrepreneurs apart from narcissists, and why audiences enjoy stories about characters who lack moral fiber.


Despite her monstrous ways, Anna was a true entrepreneur. 💯 She had a vision of what she wanted to achieve, and it didn’t matter how she did it. She leveraged other people’s credibility and reputation to make her business successful.


Diann showed a different perspective of her life—that of an entrepreneur and discussed how her psychological makeup influenced the decisions she made.
