Discovering Happiness in a New Career [ep. 7]

After 18 years of teaching, feeling trapped and unfulfilled, I finally got the courage to take a leap of faith and risk it all to leave my comfort zone in search of happiness. I have now been able to create a life that brings peace and fulfillment….and I LOVE what I do!!

I learned about finding happiness in a career through my own journey of facing imposter syndrome, self-doubt, and dissatisfaction as a teacher. Through conversations with friends, I realized that it was okay to want something different and take control of my own life. After exploring different careers, side jobs and taking breaks from the classroom, I ultimately found my place in podcast management and creating my own business. 

I now understand the importance of taking time to create memories, stepping out of your comfort zone, and finding a job that makes you truly happy….and provides the freedom you deserve!

“If you’re not happy, find a way. It took me, I’m not kidding, hours and hours and hours with a therapist, finding friends who would listen and help me, realizing that it’s okay to not like what you do and it’s okay to find something else.”

In this episode, you will learn the following:

1. Have you ever experienced imposter syndrome or doubted yourself in a career?

2. What do you wish you knew before taking a leap of faith and leaving a career to find freedom?

3. What is it like to take control of your life and create memories with your family?
