There’s something in the air. Everyone around me seems to be blowing up their businesses, leaving their jobs, redefining their priorities, or changing their relationships. It’s like we can all suddenly see the downside of NOT changing. Before our brains were focussed on all the risks of making a change. Now we’re concluding it’s too risky not to change.

In this episode I share 5 useful things to think about if you’re considering making a fresh start in some area of your life.

I’m a former international tax lawyer and senior partner of Ernst & Young in Toronto, where I serviced banks and other large multinationals and led a large group of professionals.

My life expanded when I left the law in 2014 to learn how to paint, something I’d always dreamt of doing, but had no reason to believe was possible for me. After a couple years of painting and selling my work, I became passionate about helping other people who yearn to feel more personally fulfilled, invigorated and soul connected in their lives every day, and I became certified as a life coach.

I now spend my time painting, coaching, and creating live events at GRACE Studio (more formally, the “George Russell Academy of Creative Expansion”) in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada. And, of course, producing this podcast for you.
