In today’s episode I get to sit down and talk to my friend, Karen Calder. She is a badass career and corporate coach, a public speaker, an educator, and a consultant. She wears all of the hats and gives us some insight into how she does it.
Karen has an extensive business background, and climbed the corporate ladder to the top. But once there, she made some really important realizations about what success meant to her. We explore a ton of topics to do with Karen’s journey, including false beliefs about paycheques, what it feels like when your job is killing you, and how to live from the inside out.
