How picking your best career can improve your life

On this episode of Queer Money, I’m sharing my long road to purpose-driven work. I explain how I acquired $34,000 in credit card debt after college and what inspired my transition from retail to a career in financial services. I describe the early signs from the universe that were steering me toward my purpose, including an inspiring episode of Oprah and the feat of paying off our $51K debt.

I go on to discuss the kick in the pants the universe gave me in the form of depression and a demanding boss, weighing in on how our savings gave me the resources to walk away from my W-2 and start the Debt Free Guys platform. Listen for insight into how my life has changed now that I’m pursuing my true calling, and get inspired to pick a career that fulfills YOUR purpose!
