Have you spent years working toward goals that society put in place for you? Have you ever stopped and asked yourself WHY you want to achieve those goals?

In today’s episode, Eugene Kim, co-leader of November Project San Diego, tells us how examining his goals led him from the life of an unhappy asshole (his words!) to being at his happiest point yet.

He takes us through his realization that his goals were no longer aligned with his passions, and the adjustments he made that have led to greater sense of purpose and fulfillment and wholeness.

Nathan Young: How to Quit Listening to our Inner Dean Martin | Quit Happens

Have you ever felt your worth was based on whether you were in a relationship? Have the men out there felt their worth was based on how adept they were at maintaining an active sex life? Then this episode is precisely for you.

Today’s guest is Nathan Young, a storytelling consultant and creator of the New Narrative, a live, interactive storytelling event in San Diego, CA. In our chat, he addresses that voice in our head (which often echoes throughout society) that tells us we’re nobody ’til somebody loves us.

He takes us through his self-development journey and speaks directly to the prevalent tendency for men to base their self-worth on external factors relating to women, and how he learned to tame that voice.

Amy Porter: Quitting the Afterlife to Save the Current Life | Quit Happens

I asked Amy to be on the podcast because I knew she had successfully quit social work to become a real estate mogulette, but during this episode she shared so much more!

Between separating herself from her drug-addicted mom, ditching her identity as a caretaker, and quitting the Mormon church, Amy’s story has it all, and we’re so fortunate to get to hear her open, raw depiction of the struggles she went through as a lesbian in the Mormon faith.

If you’ve struggled with telling your friends and family about a quit, please take a listen. Also, if you’ve feared the unknown on the other side of a quit, she’s got some great tips for that as well.
