How to Quit Your Day Job to Live Your Mission: Day 1

I am so excited to let you all know that WBAI Pacifica radio has commissioned me to do a 3 part radio show series on “How to Quit Your Day Job to Live Your Mission“.  On Wednesday, June 29th,  I completed Day 1 of the series.

During the series, I will discuss my own experience in quitting my job as a corporate attorney to become a full-time author, storyteller, educator, and training facilitator through my publishing and education consulting firm, Milestales (www.milestales.com).

The first show featured Tara Mohr who is an author, thought leader, and training facilitator.  She is the author of Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead She is also the founder of the Playing Big Facilitators Training.  Tara Mohr gave me and listeners phenomenal advice about being honest with ourselves about our passions, devoting even a short amount of time to cultivating our passion, re-evaluating what safety and stability are, and silencing our inner critic in order to PLAY BIG.

Magician, Ran D. Shine, was my second feature. Ran D. Shine shared his own experience with respect to leaving a graduate program in public health in order to become a magician.  It was not an easy road.  Relatives thought that he was suffering from mental illness, clients were suspicious, and sometimes he had to take odd jobs to make ends meet.  But he persevered and has found great success.  He performed at President Barack Obama’s 44th Presidential Inauguration Banquet and Ball in 2009.

Please listen to the archived show by going to http://www.wbai.org/archive.php.  The show is listed under Positive Mind, June 29, 2016.

Please listen to WBAI Pacifica 99.5 FM next Wednesday, July 6th from 1 p.m.  to 2 p.m. for the second show in the series. It will tackle how to budget while preparing to quit your day job and will feature Tiffany, “The Budgetnista”, Aliche.  If you don’t live in the NY area you can always listen via Internet at http://www.wbai.org/ and more directly, http://www.wbai.org/playernew.html.

Love you all,

Ama
