Telling your story
“Everyone has a story that could change your life.”
– Bill Burnett
Earlier this year I was honoured to be invited onto the ‘Burn from Within’ podcast hosted by Matt Garrow-Fisher. Matt has a portfolio career and as well as podcasting and copywriting is a fellow Firework Career Change coach and soon to be Designing Your Life coach. So, it was inevitable that we would talk about career experiments or prototype experiences and just how intrinsic they are to find meaningful work and to know that it will work for you before you leap. We covered off work experience and internships as well as side projects; the subtle difference between imagining what something would be like – simulation – and actually knowing what you feel – surrogation – and how just hearing from a cross-section of other people can literally change your life.
Take a listen and let me know what you think!
