My guest this week is delivering happiness every day. Jenn Lim is an inspiration to me and soon, will be to you too.
When Jenn was in college and decided to change her major, against some advice, she wandered into other studies and changed gears, telling herself, "I'm gonna do this for myself".
Because she was curious and industrious, she eventually created an opening in the business world and was off to the races…until.
After some early experiences in the DOT com boom and a series of unpredictable events, she saw a demand for happiness in the world, and decided to do something about it.
A company around happiness. How cool is that?
She asked herself:
She wanted to live and work with a heartful mind and a mindful heart.
What advice does she have for those looking for a great life/career:
Ask yourself these questions; you know.
When applying for any role, remember: it's a social contract; one that benefits you and the company equally to save time, money, and energy.
Finally, use curiosity more! Ask questions of yourself and others; questions can be more powerful than answers.
