Show notes + quote:

“So I’ve been told,  if you have your own business, you’re working with top big brands that everyone knows, and you’re making great money, then you’re successful. And it was really interesting to get there as fast as I could and then realize, I don’t feel successful because I don’t feel fulfilled. And at the same time, I was on my personal spiritual journey of becoming fully vegan, of starting to meditate, reading spiritual books, and really feeling that, actually, my work is not aligned with what I truly care about on the inside, and how can I find a way to bring those two together?”
