I'm back! At least for now, but here is my personal cubicle chronicles story. I realize I haven't told my career journey story this far and I hope that you listen and all of this will make sense! From my podcast to my Youtube project to my business, I'm hoping to weave a cohesive story together for it to really boil down to the same message: follow your original passions.
Those passions from childhood that we may have buried or stuffed down they are still there and need to be alchemized and fit into your adult life in order to start living from that joy again. Here I go through my first SIX jobs post-college and on the next episode you'll hear the rest.
