Creating Meaning At Work
Play • 32 min

How do you find meaning at work? Is it about loving the tasks you have to do each day, or is it more about your outlook? Is it about following your dreams and making your work your life...or following the dollar signs and living for the weekend? 

This was the decision facing freelance writer Allison Hope who was working at a non-profit when she received an offer to work on Wall Street.

Jacob Hirsh, a personality psychologist, says meaning and purpose are directly tied to one’s personal values. He explains why millennials are more likely to take a pay cut in order to work for a company that aligns with those values.

Julie Lee, co-creator of The Values Project, says you first must know what your values are, and offers a way to find out. Sharon Arieli, a professor who studies values, explains how and where to enact those values. Dave Mayer, at the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, describes how to compare our personal values with our company’s stated values. Emily Esfanahani Smith, author of The Power of Meaning, tells us practical ways we can rethink our relationship to finding meaning and happiness at work.

The hidden power of mushrooms | Julian Mitchell | Unstoppable #114
Did you know that mushrooms can change their DNA to make cotton, leather, and even polyester becoming food for them? That penicillin comes from the fungi kingdom? That there’s a phobia to mushrooms and they’re even considered the Earth’s natural internet? These are just some of the amazing facts about mushrooms that Julian Mitchell shared with me in this episode of Unstoppable. Julian is the CEO of Life Cykel, an evolutionary focused mycelium biotechnology company, whose mission is to enable people and the environment to grow healthier with mushrooms. He co-founded Life Cykel with Ryan Creed in 2015 and rapidly grew their business by focusing on producing the highest quality bioavailable full spectrum mushroom liquid extracts as well as some of the highest quality mushroom products. They offer an incredible range of products and services for health and planetary harmony, all consisting of the humble mushroom. They have liquid extracts, mushroom powder, mushroom protein, and even grow kits that give people the opportunity to grow their own mushrooms at home. Life Cykel also works closely with the National Mushroom Network, Mushroom honey, and Beemunity, products that support the immunity of bees. Life Cykel has been featured in a range of media including Channel 9, the Sydney Morning Herald, The Joe Rogan Experience, SBS and Beauticate. Now we have the pleasure of having Julian on Unstoppable, sharing with us his journey as an entrepreneur, from being a physiotherapist to becoming one of the most environmentally conscious mushroom farmers in Australia. Whether you’re a plant enthusiast, an entrepreneur or you’re just a curious soul who would like to learn the secrets of the fungi kingdom, this episode is for you!
