    It's Never Too Early, Or Late, To Reshape Your Career Into One You Love

    It's Never Too Early, Or Late, To Reshape Your Career Into One You Love

    Today's episode is with Richard Bennett, a consultant, coach, and international traveler. Richard began his career at Marks and Spencer in the 1980s and followed an internal path to development within the company. He then, prompted by his then manager and his wife, decided to spread his wings and try some new experiences. He hit a few roadblocks along the way, and he talks about how he overcame those challenges while staying true to his core passions as he built his career. 

    Richard's story is a prime example of how your early experiences, and the chances you take at the beginning of your career, can help to shape your whole work life. You never quite know where life will take you, but staying true to what you love makes for an exciting and fulfilling journey.

    When Technology is All We Have to Keep Us Connected

    When Technology is All We Have to Keep Us Connected

    In today's episode, I'm talking to George Mayfield, COO of Prime Vox Communications. It's a phone company, but you'll hear from George that they are supplying much more than technology. They are in the business of helping people to communicate, something which, at the moment, is vital to companies continuing to operate when the economy is struggling. Staying connected through technology is also hugely important for everyone's mental health when we can't get together in person. Companies like Prime Vox are thriving right now, but they also have to adjust their model to meet the changing needs of their consumers. This concise episode delves into ways George and his team are helping their clients, and each other, to keep going.

    Stop listening to the 'shoulds' and the 'musts'

    Stop listening to the 'shoulds' and the 'musts'

    Today's guest is Michelle Minnikin. Michelle is an organizational/occupational psychologist. Her work is focused on (in her own words) "selecting, hiring, and developing awesome humans! Or, helping organizations to keep bad guys out!" She explains how she got to this revelation of what she does during our chat!

    Michelle comes across as someone who understands herself well and has applied that understanding to craft a career path that suits her personality. She's a believer that to find work you love, you need to stop listening to the 'shoulds' and the 'musts' and do what truly makes you happy.

    I happen to agree with her.

    Enjoy the show!

Insightful and Inspiring

Rebecca’s podcast series is insightful and takes a closer look at people from different backgrounds who love the work they do. It’s an inspiring piece of storytelling, hearing people share their unique experience of how they discovered work they love. Each person’s experience is different but there is a common thread which they all touch upon during their interviews. There is no perfect roadmap to finding a career you’ll love. It’s a journey of self-discovery and putting yourself out there to explore what you’re most passionate about. Family obligations, pregnancies and health issues may force you to slow down or stumble along the path but perseverance is the key to staying on track. Rebecca has designed a spectacular podcast series that can be instrumental in helping people who are struggling to carve out their own career path and inspire us all to find joy in the work we do. I highly recommend listening to this amazing series.
