It is never too late to start over. No matter how much time or money you’ve spent chasing degrees and jobs to get to your current position, if ultimately you’re unhappy, then it is time to quit. Each week, Goli Kalkhoran, a fellow quitter, will interview inspiring guests who have quit lucrative careers to forge their own path and create a life they love. Get insight, inspiration, tools, and resources to help you quit what you hate and figure out what it is that you love.
The Fear of What Other People Think
This week I'm finally addressing one of the biggest blocks for most people: Overcoming The Fear of What Others Think. We're evolutionarily wired to want to be accepted by our tribe. But while it is natural it doesn't mean we have to keep living this way. In this episode, I break down how to push past the fear of what other people think about you and start living life on your own terms.
Nobody Wants Perfect
Want to know the secret to my success? I stopped pretending that I had it all together. The more I share my mistakes, my failures, my insecurities, the more people are attracted to me.
We’re all sick of curated. We’re all sick of perfect. We crave more humanness. We love following people who share their struggles. Who show us that they’re just figuring it out just like the rest of us.
Let It Be Hard
This week's episode is all about doing difficult things. Somewhere along the line, a lot of us adopted the mistaken belief that there is an easy way to have our dream life. But that's false, there are no shortcuts.
When we adopt that mentality, we end up making it so much harder on ourselves. But hard things challenge us to grow and learn and live a life far beyond ourselves. We can do hard things, stop wishing your way out of them.
Finding Clarity in Your Next Career Move
By far, the #1 question I get asked is some version of: “I hate my job but I have no idea what else I would do. How do I find some clarity?!”
Clarity will help you stop the self-sabotage that will otherwise continue to ruin your life. It will give you control over your own internal state so you’re not at the mercy of reacting to everyone and everything around you.
This week in the podcast, I go more in-depth into how to start discovering clarity in what you truly want.
Coaching Call Replay
If you’ve listened to the podcast for a while now, you’ve likely heard me talk about the free coaching calls I do every month.
So today on the podcast, I’m replaying last month’s coaching call. I want you to see the power of group coaching, the fact that we all have the same fears and doubts, and that your mindset is pretty much the answer to every question (*wink, wink*).
My mom's quitter story: How Ziba Farzaneh used a layoff to build her dream life
I never thought I would say this but my mom, Ziba Farzaneh is on the show.
My mother was an accountant for a number of years. She served as VP of finance of a hundred million dollar company and grew in the role for 19 years. After being blindsided by a layoff she decided to go into entrepreneurship with my sister. Together they have a school for severely autistic children, and they recently opened up a ranch that does animal therapy for the children.
Thank you for the putting this mind blowing truth into the universe.
I am so happy I stumbled onto your podcast. Good job
