What should I do with my life? A lot of us in the LGBTQ community seem to settle for jobs that are in the realm of easy possibility rather than finding and fulfilling our true purpose. But how do you know what you’re called to do? How do you pick a career that’s perfect for you?
On this episode of Queer Money, I’m sharing my own long road to purpose-driven work. I explain how I acquired $34K in credit card debt after college and what inspired my transition from retail to a career in financial services. I describe the early signs from the universe that were steering me toward my purpose, including an inspiring episode of Oprah and the feat of paying off our $51K in debt.
I go on to discuss the kick in the pants the universe gave me in the form of depression and a difficult boss, weighing in on how our savings gave me the resources to walk away from my W-2 and start the Debt Free Guys platform. Listen in for insight around how my life has changed now that I’m pursuing my true calling and get inspired to pick a career that fulfills YOUR purpose!
