You Are Not Your Job: How to Quit Your Career Without Losing Your Identity – A Quit Happens Chat with Kirsten Asher

We know the drill all too well – you meet someone new and they ask you what you do, as if what you do gives them a great idea of who you are. The idea of equating job with identity is so pervasive that the fear of losing an identity can keep people stuck in jobs that aren’t right for them for years.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. This week’s guest, Kirsten Asher of the Feminine Embodiment Method and the Art of Being Feminine, describes how part of the self-work she did through the course of several career transitions was to realize that who she was didn’t depend on what she did, it was instead a reflection of her morals and values.
