Today’s episode picks up a conversation between me and my serial entrepreneur hubby, Mark. We talk about his career progression from pastor & church planter to serial entrepreneur. We explore his “aha” discovery in his mid 40’s, several years after launching his company.
We discuss the benefits of personality profiles & mentors in discovering our truest selves.
Stay tuned to the end for something just for listeners of this podcast.
