WHP15-Laura Simms From Create As Folk: Purpose, Passion & Making A DifferenceDoes your work feel ‘purpose driven?’ Do you feel like it’s making a difference? Are you able to make a living from it? If not, you need to listen to this week’s interview with Laura Simms. Laura is the driving force behind Create as Folk and she knows a lot about doing work that doesn’t feed your soul AND what you can do about it. Create as Folk’s Philosophy 1. Making a living and making a life should go together. 2. Doing the right work feels like home. 3. At its best, work embodies the duality of contribution & self-expression. And if I can be so bold as to amend Joseph Campbell’s famous quote, 4. The privilege of a lifetime is being (and getting paid for) who you are. Laura and I discuss what it means to have a purpose filled career, what it feels like when you don’t and importantly what you can do about it. We talk about why there’s no such thing as one job you’re ‘meant’ to do, and why the career or profession you want at 20 won’t be the same as what you want at 30, 40 and 50. We also get into what prompted her to shift careers herself from being an actress in Hollywood to becoming a life coach who helps others to find their very own career homecoming.
