Very promising podcast
If you are like me interested in:
* setting yourself up for work aligned with a meaningful job and job environment
* listen to fellows that have enbarked on this type of journey
* engage with a community that supports your efforts
this podcast may be just what you have been looking for.
The first three sessions are an intro, with the third laying out the 7 types of people we typically encounter on our journey. This podcast earned my trust by keeping it real. There are people that promote and other's that detract: with this podcast we we sharpen our tools and gain confidence to do what is right.
Kevin Monroe lays out clearly where he is coming from, what he is doing, and gives a framework of 7 types of people along our path. I cant wait to listen to the interviews that he has lined up with all the people that he has met in his career that made a difference in his life. And he engages us to find and approach these people in our own orbits.
Higher puropose of a life well lived is of course an ancient concern. While Kevin references his own Christian faith background, his topic is wide open for all no matter what background.
I am looking forward to the weekly podcast with the interviews...
Well researched, engaging, and easy to listen to. Looking forward to each week's episode. This podcast will change lives. Can't wait for more.
