205: Finding a career that supports your lifestyle + values with Kali Wolken

You work for the majority of your life – in fact the average person spends 90,000 hours working in their lifetime. That’s a LOT of time to spend either doing something that you LOVE or dreading every second of it. Today, we’re talking with Career Counselor Kali Wolken about finding work that not only pays the bills, but fills your tank instead of depleting it.


In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Leaning in and trusting your instincts
  • An exercise to figure out your values
  • When your job doesn’t align with your values
  • Workplace values: which are your non-negotiables?
  • If you’re not leaving your job out of fear, this one’s for you
  • Exploring your “when I grow up” story
  • How to give yourself permission to change no matter what
  • Career tests and a question to help you find the job for you

Here are the FREE career tests, Kali mentions in the episode:



“Your career is not your purpose, your career is just one way to apply your purpose for a time.”

“I’m guilty of that, too. You know, I’m guilty of staying in something much longer, because it’s just easier sometimes. And then hindsight is 20/20, where we go, Okay. I could have left earlier, and maybe my life would have been different.”

“Change your mind if it feels better, because you’re gonna move faster when you’re going towards something that matters to you.”

“People believe that because they’ve picked a field, they can’t change, and that’s just not true. A lot of the skills that come in any career path can be translated into other career paths.”
