It’s natural to want a road map before you start anything new.

That’s why your first inclination when you realize you don’t love your job anymore might be to dive into the research. You gather as much information as you can about what other people like you have done. You consult with market experts and head hunters. You ask your friends for advice. You spend a lot of time on Google.

You’re making a mistake because there’s a huge downside to this approach. It will get you somewhere that feels similar to where you are now.

In this episode, I teach you a new concept – “high quality actions” – and how to use them to get to a place you actually want to be!

My mission in this podcast is to help you find the freedom to become who you want. I make sure every episode is full of useful information you can apply right away to start taking your life in a beautiful, new direction.

I’m a former international tax lawyer and senior partner with Ernst & Young. I left the law in 2014 to learn how to paint. After a couple years painting and selling my work, I became passionate about helping other people who feel stuck in their careers and lives and want to feel more personally fulfilled, invigorated and soul connected. I now spend my time painting, coaching, and creating live events at the George Russell Academy of Creative Expansion in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada.
