Today, I sit down with Simone Stolzoff, the brilliant author of “The Good Enough Job.”
Simone has extensively studied the intricate role of work in our lives, asking the question: “How do we see work as just a piece of an awesome of our life?”
He also uncovers what we lose when work becomes more than just a job, challenges the prevailing narratives of work as a calling or dream, and shares strategies that can help us build more well rounded lives.
Together, we explore groundbreaking perspectives on reframing work as an integral part of life, rather than allowing it to consume our entire being. Prepare to be inspired and enlightened as we uncover the keys to unlocking a balanced and fulfilling relationship with work.
