What drives Jodie?
“We spend one-third of our life working. So it’s an understatement to say that we should strive to enjoy what we do, be energized by our work and have a greater sense of meaning and purpose as a result of it. But it’s not always the case, it’s my mission to change that. I faced my own ‘direction dilemma’ in 2010. I left the safety of corporate life to travel Central America alone, found inspiration in the wildest places and most diverse characters and returned determined to devote my time to helping others become unstuck. Those decisions felt like huge risks, but they were true to my own sense of purpose, and we should never ignore the role of purpose in making big life decisions. I speak regularly on business and lifestyle platforms and bring my personal stories and those of my clients to prove that given the right guidance and with the right mindset, we CAN make change happen.”
