It sounds simple: do what you love and you will never work a day in your life. My inherent passion for people-their stories, the details and nuances of their path to the present, their hopes and aspirations for the future, and their paths to realizing full and actualized lives has found its natural expression in interviewing subjects from a diverse group of professions who have found their true calling. I derive great joy from eliciting the stories of how these remarkable professionals have achieved their success, and hope that their stories will help and inspire our listeners as they seek their own path toward the sweet spot that allows them to transcend the barriers between a “good” life, and truly defining and achieving a life where their aspirations become reality. I am forever grateful that my longtime, amazing friend Polina, invited me to be her partner in rebranding the “I Want Her Job” podcast and continuing to share people’s amazing stories as the now “Meant For It” podcast.
My own path has been shaped and informed by my childhood in a small outdoors town in Oregon, my formal academic training at the University of Penn and UC Davis in psychology, and focused through the lens of the perspective gained personally and professionally as a business consultant to Fortune 500 companies and major academic institutions, a real estate investor, as a writer and reporter for a major news network, as an open ocean sailboat racer, as a ranch hand, as a wife, and as a mother. I hope that you will find our conversations with other seekers, dreamers and do-ers to be as informative and enjoyable as we do. Thanks for listening.
