I'm quitting! (Why and when it can be good to be a quitter.)
In this episode, I share why "don't be a quitter" can be terrible advice and what we can learn from two top sports figures who took very different paths when it came to quitting.  Oh,  and I reveal why I'm quitting this Podcast! (At least for now...so perhaps saying I'm taking an indefinite pause is more accurate?) While I'm taking a step away from this weekly Podcast, I'm still planning to create a ton of content.

What Makes Spiritual Relationships so Hard....and Amazing?
In this episode, I’m once again joined by my  husband Elijah and we spill the beans on spiritual (or growth-oriented) relationships. If you need a pick-me-up, know that this is a pretty funny episode. Another way to put this is that we’re being extremely generous when it comes to bestowing our gift of imperfection on the listeners. So, the funniness (is that a word?) is mostly unintentional—but, let’s be real, that’s the best type of funny! Here are the questions we will answer: - What are spiritual relationships and what makes them so unique? - How is this impacting every aspect of our own lives (a.k.a. tales from the trenches)? - If you also desire a growth-oriented relationship, what can you do to create this special connection in your own life? Bonus: you will also learn why you really should be putting your phone on Do Not Disturb mode. If this topic (relationships, not your phone's DND mode) intrigues you,  you might be interested in our online course on this matter. You can find the course  "How to Have an Amazing Relationship While Being on a Spiritual Path" here: https://bit.ly/2UKmucw (use the coupon code "VALENTINE" to get it for 14 USD before 2/17).

Here’s How to Find True Love When You Care about Your Purpose (Surprise!)
Many people who want to make a difference wonder how to find true love.  They often really want to share their lives with an amazing partner if  they don't already have one. For instance, a while ago, I was talking to a client who is very passionate about what he does for a living. He  also felt that, after having been single for a while, it was time for  him to start dating again. After signing up for a dating platform, he  was wondering how on earth to find the right person. In this  episode, I share something that hardly EVER gets mentioned in dating  advice but is SO CRUCIAL if you want to find the right person. When I  reveal what this is, you will probably think "oh yeah, now that you  mention it it's so obvious" but it's quite likely that you have never  actually heard someone give you that advice before. If you want more relationship help, you can check out the free "Love Matters" bundle (https://www.workyoulovecoach.com/love-gifts) and the relationship course Elijah and I have created for you (https://bit.ly/2QFe2sY).

How Is Overworking Different from Just Being Passionate?
Workaholism is pretty much the only socially acceptable (even celebrated) addiction... even though the reality of it isn't necessarily pretty. Someone who overworks may be stressed out, running ragged, or finding themselves working until late at night.  In this episode, we explore the difference between overworking and just being passionate about one's work. We also discuss what true success might look like, a number of really interesting articles and how working a ton has become a status symbol.  More about Bere's story: https://www.workyoulovecoach.com/about Show Notes: https://leaderforgood.com/podcast/overworking ** Correction: Alexander the Great did age 32, not 31. **

Behind the Scenes: Why Did I Write My New Book?
In this "behind the scenes" episode, Elijah and I talk about my new book "The Work You Love  Revolution." I reveal why I wrote it and how it can help YOU have work you really love.   You can pre-order the book (and get the bonus I mentioned towards the end of the video) here: https://www.workyoulovecoach.com/workyou Book description:   Over your lifetime, you will spend at least 80,000 hours at work. If that thought makes you feel utterly depressed, you’re far from alone.  According to an international study, only a small minority of people  worldwide (15 %) are engaged at work.  If disliking one’s job was a  physical illness, authorities would have categorized it as a national  and international  emergency by now!  Clearly, meaningful work is extremely valuable to people. So much so  that according to one American study, on average people would trade in  about $21,000 a year in exchange for meaningful work (which is more than  they spend on housing!).   When I work with clients on this individually, they often invest $2000  or more to have me help them create work they love.  Even if we only work together for a month, that is $400 that my clients  are happy to spend on their quest to have meaningful work.  Since individual coaching is not something that is financially  accessible to everyone, I am so happy that I can now offer my help in a  way that everyone CAN afford.   This ebook summarizes a lot of the work I have done over the last half  decade or so and it feels so good to be able to share with you how you  can create work you love…   … at a fraction of the costs of a Starbucks coffee (1.11 USD, to be precise… or the equivalent in your currency)!   Pre-order now and get the lowest price plus a super-special bonus that is only available for the first 100 people: https://www.workyoulovecoach.com/work-you-love-revolution Show Notes: https://leaderforgood.com/podcast

A Fresh Take on Work-Life Balance & How to Get There
In this episode, I talk to award-winning scientist and spiritual teacher Elijah Petersen about work-life balance. Having this in our lives helps with maintaining good relationships with the people we care about, being less stressed, feeling happier, being more productive at work and having a richer, fuller life. However, getting to this place is not easy. How can we find time for all of the things that are important so that we can show up fully at work and in other areas of our lives? In this episode, we talked about: - our best advice for having the life you want while also being productive at work, - why you need a different approach to work-life balance depending on whether you are an employee or entrepreneur, - the impact of your culture on your work-life balance (and why we should probably all move to the Netherlands...), - a simple practice that can help you be more productive, and - our suggestions for leaving work at work.
