EP 012 – The End of My Defining Decade & Turning 30

Socrates said “The unexamined life is not worth living.” It’s more important that at every juncture, you reflect back on how far you’ve come and where you’re heading to. Be intentional with where you’re going – every step of the way.

 

Meg Jay’s THE DEFINING DECADE 

 

 

 

Today’s episode is going to be different. Today I’m going to get really personal. Instead of talking about Meg Jay’s “The Defining Decade,” I decided I would open up and share with you some personal anecdotes of the events leading up to the end of my defining decade – the end of my twenties.

To date, I have interviewed almost 20 women for this show and I noticed something interesting – it seems like the pivotal age when a career change occurred was upon hitting 30. Another pivotal moment was a result of experiencing a life or death situation.

Maybe we find in the world what we look for – but those were the 2 critical experiences for me that pushed me to take a step back from my life and changed the trajectory of where I was going in my career.

In this episode, I talk about  

* Uncertainty in your 20s and 30s

* Divorce, death and insensitive bosses

* My sad 29th birthday and turning 30

* Certainty and stability vs. freedom and creativity

* How I felt about the season finale of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York and Luis Ortiz’s decision to quit his lucrative career as a real estate agent
