Success Myth: Solo Journey

Most job seekers believe they need to navigate their career journey on their own. The individualistic ideal is sewn into the fabric of American culture. And there are barriers to finding trustworthy mentors or sponsors to guide you. But the notion that your career is a solo journey is a myth. To build a career of purpose, you need other people to speak into your life and to help you make key decisions. In this episode, career expert and Purpose Promise founder John McCarthy discusses why “it takes a village” to build a purposeful career. Then, he is joined by Liz Driscoll, a business owner and producer of the Purpose Promise Podcast, to describe how the solo journey myth impacted her life journey.
