Happenstance the podcast explores how we create careers out of both the planned and the unplanned experiences in our lives. How opportunity and hard work and the unexpected all come together to create the various paths that we all take. As a career coach, I believe that our careers are not a single, one-time, decision that we make but are a series of experiences and decisions surrounding both the well thought out and the things that just…well happen.

So many great insights on navigating career shifts!

I'm truly inspired by the conversations that highlight both the visible and invisible journeys of each guest! I am reminded that no matter the starting point, we each have a valuable gift to share with the world - and the only way to do so is to lean into those "scary" nudges from within!
