Have you ever wondered how to find your calling? What it looks like to pursue your life’s work and lead a meaningful life and career?
I’m so excited to publish this episode with Jeff Goins about finding and pursuing your calling, the future of work, and how to allocate your resources to make the most impact.
Jeff just launched an amazing book called The Art of Work, where he writes about a lot of the topics we cover on Unsettle: finding what you’re meant to do, mentorships, listening to your life and doing something meaningful. And I’m so honored Jeff decided to join me on the Unsettle Podcast to go over some of these themes.
I also have a few copies of The Art of Work to give away to three people who leave reviews on iTunes for the Unsettle podcast. Head on over to iTunes now to leave review to be entered to win =)
