Stephen Warley joins Rich on the podcast today. Stephen is the founder of “Life Skills That Matter”. Life Skills That Matter is on a mission to help you begin to start working for yourself and create a life and career that’s aligned with your personal values. If you believe that the concept of “work” is broken and you want to disrupt everything that society has taught you about the workforce, Life Skill That Matter can help.
When you being to set values-based goals instead of monetary goals, you can start aligning your life’s purpose to the actions you take daily. What are your core values? You need to get curious and self-aware and figure them out. Some people want to be able to work from anywhere in the world, others want to work less and spend more time with family and friends. Once you figure out what’s truly important to you, you can begin to build a life that’s purpose-driven. That’s where true success lies.
Key Takeaway: With some curiosity, patience and the right planning you can eventually work on your own terms and get paid to be exactly who you are.
