EP – 74 Career Meets Purpose

Our conversation with Greg Vance

Greg Vance joins us again to discuss job hunting, career management, and finding work that has purpose and meaning in our middle to later years.

Greg is a successful and sought-after coach who has been where many of us are currently. He has been in a position that paid well but was uninspiring. After working with renowned (and former guest of the show) career coach, Dan Miller, Greg set out to help other people find profoundly satisfying work. You know, the kind of work where you can’t wait for Monday to come around so that you can take your strengths and dive into purposeful work.

You will be sure to enjoy this conversation and learn a lot from Greg’s experience. Also, think about a friend who could use a bit of encouragement and valuable information about finding work and share this valuable resource.
