You know an interview has gone a-ha-inducing when you find yourself making notes while it’s happening. I didn’t want Laura to think me rude, but seriously, how could I not stop what I was doing to jot down the wise truthbombs she was dropping?

We got to talk about:

  • how she came to her “What the {bleep} am I doing?!” moment in her corporate finance job (and what she did to fix it)
  • how she found the Puzzle Pieces that led to 5 (!) different careers (and what she does to keep finding – and following! – them)
  • how she got up the nerve to leave her prestigious, high-paying job to travel the country in a converted school bus for a year (and what she had to be willing to hear in order to make it happen)
  • how she works as a life leadership coach *and* a partner of Nourish Charlotte, the city’s only local, vegan/vegetarian food delivery service (without her head exploding)

There’s so much goodness in here that I still have the fire lit under me from hearing Laura’s story and getting her Puzzle Pieces. Honestly, if you’re a Renaissance Soul and/or you don’t buy into the fact that careers only have to be “linear”, you’re gonna wanna watch this.
