If you're anything like Ace Chapman, our guest today, and you have an eye for opportunity and the understanding of what is right for you and your lifestyle, listen to the episode and learn how you can build out your vision and straight-line to your goals.

Have you ever experienced career burn out?
It seems like now more than ever, we are living in this “burn out culture” where we are working more hours while our productivity has become stagnant.
According to today’s guest, Emilie Aries, many of us are experiencing more career burn out because we are “not prioritizing efficiency for hours in and hours out” and we have begun “operating in a timid workplace environment where our self-worth is intrinsically connected to our product.”
Becoming more intentional in how you spend your time and who you spend it with is key in the maintenance in self-care.
“Happier, healthier people are more focused and more productive.”
In today’s episode, Emilie shares her thoughts on how your personal decisions and choices amount to your collective decisions and choices. She also goes into the core values that helped her transform her career and life from a place of burn out to the much more happy and much more productive place in her career and life that she is at now.

Passion can be defined in many ways in relation to your career.
Christie Mims, the founder of the Revolutionary Club, a Forbes Top 100 website for your career, wants people to separate their passion from their job.
According to Christie, in the grander scale of things, passion plays a bigger part in your career than you think.
So, what is passion?
Passion is two part. It's your interest and engagement.
Passion is your North Star and your job is fueled by your passion.
Basically, passion is who you are and your job is how you express that passion.
Finding your passion takes a little bit of courage in order to get off the beaten career path and embrace who you are and what motivates you to do good work.
In the podcast, Christie shares how to find your passion and how to turn that into a career that you love.

Many people are often conditioned to follow a traditional path of success.
After college, you get an internship. That internship turns into a job. Then you work your way to the top of your firm or gain success in a specialty.
You do all of the work that lines up with that job title that you've been aiming for since your freshman year of college.
That was the plan for our guest, Lindsay Moroney. She "planned" to go to college for pre-med, until she took an art history class that derailed her from that clear path to success. It was in that decision to ditch pre-med and follow her passion for art history that led her to her current position as the Vice President of Strategy and Operations for The Muse.
Listen as Lindsay shares how to redefine your own path to success and how being authentic with herself and following her what made her happy has led her to this particular point in her life and career where she is thriving.
