How much do your work and your paycheck influence your idea of your self worth?
Anyone who has gone through a job transition, been in a career rut, or found themselves out of a job probably knows the struggle of tying their own personal worth to their job.
As Jordan is getting ready to navigate his own career transition and leave his job, we invited financial therapist Lindsay Bryan-Podvin on the show to talk about work and worth issues. We learn exactly what a financial therapist is (hint: it’s a new profession), how to identify those unhelpful thoughts, and why having things outside of work that excites you is so important. We also talk about goals, systems, and giving yourself permission to have a bad day.
If you’re interested in understanding more about — and maybe making healthy changes to — your relationship with money and your self-worth, this episode is worth a listen.
