Career Break

3 Life-Changing Lessons My Career Break Taught Me

Truth time.

Throughout most of my career, I was a square peg trying to fit into a round hole.

While those around me thrived, I suffered from a lack of enthusiasm and the sneaking suspicion that this wasn’t what I was supposed to be doing with my life. 

8 years and 3 companies later, I ran away to business school with hope of finally figuring myself out. It was an amazing two years, but the answers didn’t quite rain down on me like I hoped they would.

I graduated from business school and started a new career - I gave it a chance, but deep down I knew – it wasn't "me" either.

Up to this point, I had let life to happen to me instead of going after the life I wanted.

How Elizabeth Gilbert Changed My Life

During our interview, I explained how Elizabeth Gilbert changed my life.

I don't often share this piece of my story - it can seem a bit cliche when I explain how her memoir, Eat Pray Love, inspired my own big career break.

But cliche or not, it's the absolute truth.

And that's why I'm sharing it with you today. Because I want you to see how YOU too can go from "there's absolutely no way - it's impossible" to "holy sh*t - this is really happening!!!"
