158: Don’t Keep Your Day Job w/ Cathy Heller
Cathy Heller doesn't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but her words are a necessary reminder: “Your purpose isn't something you discover under a rock.” Today we're talking about developing your purpose over time, with an open mind, active listening, and a love for meaningful connection.
For the finale of Season 5 of the podcast, it was only fitting we close out with an episode on one of the most common reasons people turn to Lavendaire: figuring out what to do with your life. This episode has both the practical tips and thought-provoking questions you need to help you do just that.
