Episode 2: Follow Your Passion & Fly
by Charlie Epstein (comments: 0) |
Our second episode of “Killing Retirement” digs deep into the question: “what do you want to do with your life?” and (more importantly) WHY? She’s focusing on the group of parents she calls “helicopter parents” and the children that come from that parenting style.
Our guest: Dr. Joanie Connell
Quote of the ‘Cast: “I’m finding a lot of people that get to the workplace and they weren’t as happy as they thought they would be because their helicoptering parenting and teachers have been promising them that there’s a wonderful light at the end of the tunnel after they work so hard during their childhood. They get out there and find that they’re at the bottom of the ladder in the corporate world. They’re not having these amazing jobs that they thought they would have and very dissatisfied that the work is a little bit more boring than they thought it would be a lot of times, more tedious, and just not prepared to do these kinds of things because their parents have been helping them out so much as they grew up.”
As part of “Killing Retirement”, we’re seeking out answers for people who are just starting out in life as well as folks who are mid-career or closing in on retirement. What if you could start your working life off with the understanding that from true passion brings true reward? Listen to this week’s podcast to find out more.
Charlie believes the cornerstone of creating success with your finances and your life, is to act like an entrepreneur! Eliminating an "entitlement mentality" and taking control of your life's choices and personal finances are the first steps to igniting and aligning your passions with your finances.
