141 The Science of Happiness: How to Find Joy and Get Back to Playing Through Positive Psychology with Michelle McQuaid
Are you finding yourself unsatisfied by the life path that you are on?
Do you ever feel like once you achieve a goal or you get where you want to be in your career or in a particular place in your life that all you want is more?
As we reach a level of technical success in our career, we stop learning new things and our lives become less engaging. Getting curious and staying interested in what matters to us is imperative in our lives. Keeping that sense of wonder keeps life playful and fun.
Today's guest, Michelle McQuaid, is here to teach us about her findings in the science of happiness, also referred to as positive psychology.
Her studies encourage us to look beyond our achievement-obsessed and outcome-focused society as that culture causes us to lose sight of the things that bring us joy in the every day.
Listen to our chat with Michelle as she shares her experience of reaching what she thought her career and life goals were, but then found herself wanting more from the life she created for her and her family.

What's your story? Do you even know?
Have you taken the time to look at your own story? Ask yourself: what are the biggest triumphs of your story? Find out where the biggest tragedies that you've experienced are in your story.
Between the times that you've felt the most successful- the times that made you feel the most alive, and the times that you've had to deal with your biggest setbacks- the hard circumstances that you've had to overcome, you will find your future.
Today's guest, Paul Angone, is here to reemphasize that it's okay to not have it all figured out yet. He encourages us to take a look back at the experiences we've gone through to help see what we want our future story to look like.
Listen to our chat with Paul as he shares how to take your story, uncover your signature sauce (where your passion, purpose, and career collide), and create a brand for yourself.

Have you decided to take the leap into a different career? Or maybe you've decided to start your own business?
Making the decision to start a new business or completely head in a different direction into a new career path isn't an easy one.
Our guest, Jaime Masters, speaks from her very own experience of leaving her successful career as a project manager behind and jumping into the unknown. She is now an incredibly successful business coach with a strong network of millionaires. Her journey into the unknown opened her eyes to what is possible.
Jaime discovered that her strengths were in helping people. Her lessons to be learned are centered around the fact that "you have no idea what you're good at until you do it."
Listen in on our conversation with Jaime Masters. Jaime shares tips on how to be patient in the evolution of who you are. Every time you are asked to make a hard decision, you have to realize that it is a test to see how good you are at a skill.

We talk about career transitions and finding and turning your passions into a career you love all the time, but what happens when you love where your career is now and you want to work on incorporating some of your other passions into your work life?
Maybe your career has nothing to do with the additional knowledge, skills, or passions that you want to leverage to create a better future for yourself. All you know is that you're motivated and ready to make some moves to start working on something big for yourself.
That's where the side hustle comes in.
Our guest, Tracey Minutolo, has quickly become a side-hustling professional on the topic of side-hustling. She's a full-time lab supervisor at a medical device and diagnostics company by day, and a side-hustling rockstar by heart.
Tracey got her start in the side-hustle business when she decided it was time to get herself out of debt.
After years of feeling stuck, she found the world of business podcasts and decided to start a small virtual assistant side business, providing social media and community management and other support services for podcasters with purpose.
With the side-hustle fire lit under her, her skill set continues to grow and she is currently coaching others with their side-businesses as HTYC's Side Biz Coach.
Listen as she shares her career and side-hustle journey!
