Dave talks to us about the importance of accepting your career journey as anything BUT a straight line!  The twists and turns are not only to be expected, but to be appreciated!

What You Will Learn

  • If you can accept that a career path ISN’T actually a straight line, the twists and turns that come up along the way are much easier to manage!
  • You’ll hear why basing your identity on what you do can actually get in the way of identifying what you REALLY want to do in the world
  • And you’ll hear all about the upsides and downsides of being stubborn!
