[021] Ambition, Fear, and Finding Purpose


My guest for this episode is Marianne Welsh. Marianne was an ambitious, rising star in the corporate world, working in the London office of a global consulting firm. But by her early 30’s she felt burned out. She left her job in search of a greater sense of purpose and it was at that time that she accepted Christ. Still unclear on a direction for her career, she followed a tiny bit of passion she had and volunteered for a local charity. It was there she would rediscover a career path she felt called to since college.

Today Marianne is a leadership coach that helps Christians in the marketplace discover, pursue and achieve their own unique calling. Like many of us, Marianne has a story that’s filled with setbacks and wrong turns before she found success.

In this episode we talk about three common obstacles people face in following the career they feel called to, including:

  • Feeling too busy and not enough time
  • Feeling overwhelmed and not sure where to start
  • Overcoming past failures

Marianne offers practical advice about how to overcome each one to create a career and a life that’s filled with a deep sense of meaning and purpose.
