Overcoming Mental Barriers (Figure Out What Fits, Part II)

“You can’t do what you want to be doing and get paid for it.” “I need to find my passion first.” “Stuff that comes easy can’t be valuable.” “I’ve seen other people have success with that, but it would never work for me.”

What mental barriers are you carrying around with you? You may be aware of some of them. Some of them might be buried a little deeper. We run through a handful of the most common limiting beliefs we’ve seen in our work. We break each one of them down and give you the tools to arm yourself against them when they show up on your journey to finding the work you’ll love!

Taking the Path of Most Excitement with Matt Williams

If you’ve got a travel bug and would love to know how you can build a career around it, this is the episode for you! Even if you don’t have travel fever, you’ll still get a lot out of our interview with Matt Williams. At each juncture in his career, Matt followed the path that most excited him. Early on, he admits it was more like leaping first, sorting out the details later. But, as he’s grown older, he’s been able to continue making the career moves that excite him, but with careful planning first. Matt has co-founded Brain Gain, a “vehicle for undergraduates and graduates to find career relevant positions abroad in startups and social enterprises in emerging economies.” Matt shows us that if you want something badly enough, there’s ALWAYS a way to get there!

Multi-talented, Multi-passionate, Multipotentialites with Emilie Wapnick

Does the idea of having just “one true calling” seem a little too limited for you? Do you find yourself being drawn to a variety of different career options? You might be a multipotentialite! In her last year of law school, when she decided that she didn’t want to become a lawyer, Emilie Wapnick began studying entrepreneurship.  Frustrated by her own inability to settle on a single “calling”, she founded Puttylike.com as an online resource and community for multipotentialites like herself.  She believes that multipotentialites have the responsibility to innovate and may even hold the key to solving some of the world’s biggest problems. She’s even delivered a TED talk on the subject!
