Proven strategies & transformative advice for creating a career and life you love.

The Purposeful Career Podcast




Available on these or your favorite podcast platforms.


Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by. 

I created this podcast because I believe that what we choose to do with our work lives is about more than a paycheck. It's about using our gifts and contributing in a way that matters to us.

And it's a journey that can be so meaningful. Unfortunately, the journey can also be challenging. Because it'll deliver a never-ending stream of problems that force us to face and overcome our inner demons. To choose whether we conquer things like self doubt, overwhelm, self sabotage, fear and anxiety or just settle for less than we want. 

Most career education is about technical skills.  And sure, it's important to be good at what you do. But what you need even more is mental discipline. And deep, unwavering self belief. That's what my Inner Leadership approach is all about.

This is the podcast I wish I'd had 20 years ago. Because it would've made my journey less stressful and a whole lot more fun. And that's my wish for you. Join me every Sunday for a new episode.
