Why is our culture so obsessed with job titles and job status? Just think about how often we ask, and are asked by others, “So, what do you do?” This inflated importance of career causes people to believe they have to find all of their fulfillment within the constraints of their career, which can easily lead to work consuming their life. 

That’s exactly what happened to Karen — when the pandemic hit at the same time as multiple family emergencies, she realized her work was keeping her from her true priorities and she needed to make a change.  

Through Karen's experience, we uncover the importance of redefining the role of work in our lives and finding fulfillment beyond career achievements. Discover how Karen flipped the script of her life, redefined her priorities, and found a career that fit her new life design!
