34. How millennials can opt-out of "checklist culture" and learn to love delayed gratification, with Bethany Adkins, author + host of Millennial Mission podcast Perfcked Podcast

    • Mental Health

Are you overwhelmed watching everyone else's life fall into place, never knowing when yours will? On today's episode, our guest reminds us that what we see online is only a fraction of the real image and that we are not all called to the same path. And if you know me, you know she's speaking my language. 

Today on the show we are speaking to Bethany Adkins, author and host of Millennial Mission podcast. Bethany is a Pediatric Nurse turned stay at home mom who has always had a love for reading and writing, and she finally decided to pursue it full time. She is now a blogger, podcaster, freelance writer, and podcast manager. If she is not adventuring with her family in her spare time, you can find her at the nearest coffee shop diving into a good book or creating one of her own. 

In today's episode, Bethany speaks on breaking the stigmas of Millennials, giving a call to action for us to rise up for future generations. We discuss living a life outside of cultural norms to pursue your purpose and standing out in a world that screams conformity.
