Welcome to The Modern Independent -- a podcast dedicated to inspiring, equipping, and empowering top independent workers to supercharge their careers and lives.

On this episode of The Launchpad, Jan will be joined by guest Catherine Zack-- a former corporate lawyer turned meditation & yoga teacher, relaxation guide, and mindfulness-based life coach.

Catherine began her career as a corporate litigator at a white-shoe, top-tier law firm in Washington, DC, in 2010. As she grew in her self-awareness, she began to look at herself from the outside. She realized she was a Type-A, over-achieving go-getter who seemed to have it all figured out —  at least on paper. 

After a few years in that fast-paced, high-stakes, sleep-when-you’re done, big-law life, she finally looked up and realized that a career path toward the partnership wasn’t actually for her.

She knew she needed to create a different livelihood by redefining success and seeking opportunities to immerse herself in her passions.

In today’s episode, we’ll cover

  • Catherine’s transition from big law to meditation & yoga, and how she balanced the start of her journey.
  • The art of self-awareness, and how to keep an ever learning mentality.
  • Why it’s important to be aware of the seasons in life, and their purpose.
