Beyond the Status Quo Podcast Feature

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

“So, what’s on deck after graduation? Got that first job lined up?”

“Is this the forever job? What’s the 5-year plan looking like these days?”

“What do you do? Do you like your job?”

UGH. We’ve all been asked a derivative of these questions at least once in our lives. Well-meaning acquaintances shuffling their way through small talk, trying to categorize us or make sense of “what we do” in this life. Usually, this is a polite way to ask so, how do you make money?” But sometimes, people are actually curious what you care about, and really, what your purpose is.

But what if you don’t know what you’re made to do? What if you haven’t the first CLUE about how to answer these questions? What if every time someone pokes their head into your 5-year-plan-life-purpose-life-calling-pile-of-confusion, you spin into frustrated mess because you just. don’t. know. what you’re created for?

Well, I’ve been there. I believe we all have. And I also believe that if we are willing to dig below the surface, and actually start asking ourselves hard questions, we can find traces and hints within ourselves about what we were created to do in this big beautiful world.

I had the absolute joy and pleasure of sitting down with Avani Mirayala, a talented entrepreneur and designer based in Austin, TX, to discuss self-discovery on her podcast, Beyond the Status Quo. On this episode, we chatted all about my personal journey to entrepreneurship and how self-discovery played such a crucial role. We talk about why self-discovery is often overlooked and how we can get the courage to face the stories we’ve been telling ourselves. I share how I have been able to rewrite these stories for myself in order to chart my own path and live beyond the status quo. If you’re looking for a catalyst in order to level up in your life, this episode is for you!
