Episode 29: Goli Kalkhoran
We talk a lot about relaunching, but today we’re going to talk about… quitting. Our guest, Goli Kalkhoran, is a professional quitter. Wait, that doesn’t sound quite right. But here’s the deal: Goli found herself in a place many of us have been in, and she made a brave, scary choice.
After a lifetime of working toward a career in law, Goli achieved everything she’d been working toward. And she hated it. She tells us how it felt, and what it looked like, to change everything.
This is the episode for you if…
- You’ve ever felt stuck in your career.
- You’ve ever felt guilty about wanting to make a career change.
- You’ve ever wondered how to pivot, professionally or personally.
- You don’t know what you want, or how to figure it out.
In this episode, we dive into breaking old habits and patterns, and how mindset is key to getting what you want out of your life and career.
More About Goli
Goli is a mom and… lawyer-turned-entrepreneur and podcaster, which is a fancy way of saying she quit law, tried a bunch of things, and happened upon an idea that she turned into a business.
Goli hosts the Lessons from a Quitter podcast, where she uses her platform to de-stigmatize quitting and provide resources and inspiration to individuals looking to pivot in their established careers. She challenges people to exceed their own expectations and guides them through the initial steps of starting over in order to build a more intentional, fulfilling life.
