E148 – 148: Figuring Out Who You Are as a Person and What You Like To Do


By the time we are young adults, we adapt this mentality that whatever it is that we decide to do as our job or our career, is the end all be all decision. And we are so hard on ourselves when we can’t figure out what that thing is. We put so much pressure on ourselves to “get it right” the first time, even though we’ve barely had any kind of life experience. In this episode, Rachel and Erin answer a question from The Confident Woman Community – “How do you choose a career when you aren’t sure what you want to do?”

Rachel and Erin chat more about

  • Both of their journeys and how it is led them to where they are today
  • Shifting your expectations to focus on the short term as opposed to trying to figure out the long term, right now
  • Tips on how to go back to the “roots” of who you are as a person and exploring it
  • Giving yourself grace (no one knows 100% what they want to in life)
  • Not being afraid to try different things
