38 | Finding What Makes You Come Alive with Marie Gettel-Gilmartin
Show Notes

In this week's episode, I speak with Marie about her journey from teaching to writing to the editorial department to corporate communications and social responsibility.  The whole time she was creating her path and finding unique opportunities to challenge herself.  Then when two layoffs happened in two years, she realized life was telling her that it was time to work for herself and create the kind of business that reflected who she was and the impact she wanted to have.  Take a risk, take a leap, especially if you are in a toxic environment, and find a way to thrive!
