Have you been living a calculated, box-checking life?
Are you looking for a change of pace, lifestyle, or career?
That is exactly how our guest, Tracy Timm, felt after checking off the boxes of graduating from Yale and getting a job on Wall Street out of college.
Tracy began to feel the effects of the classic "high-achiever" looking for more from life than just her job- which began to make her miserable.
After deciding that picking misery and safety over an actual fulfilling life was not how she wanted to continue, she laid her cards on the table for her employers and ultimately left Wall Street to begin her entrepreneurial journey (after her trip around the world to regain a new perspective on life, of course).
Listen as Tracy shares how she got her perspective back to make the switch from the corporate life to a life defined on her own terms.
