In this week’s Career Relaunch episode, David Pullara explains why he decided to leave his job at Google and instead focus his energies on his family and a few passion projects. We discuss respecting your authentic self and pursuing projects that feed your true interests. During today’s Mental Fuel segment, I described what happened when I decided to pursue a couple of my own side interests.
During this episode’s Mental Fuel segment, I talked about the importance of giving yourself permission to pursue one of your side interests. What’s one small, concrete step you will commit to taking today to finally get moving’ on that side interest or project you’ve been toying with for so long? I’d love to hear what you plan to do in the comments below.
