—Topic: How to have a Regenerative Life
Life doesn’t stop during a pandemic, but it certainly changes a bit! Bethany and Ellie begin this weeks episode discussing how their lives have change in the last month of sheltering in place. Bethany shares a story of kindness from a stranger in a line for Trader Joe’s.
Carol Sanford joins then to discuss how to have a Regenerative Life, which is also the title of her latest book. She approaches the topic of “heroes” in our society and a non-heroic approach to a world-changing life. She shares how to view life and career in a different way than what we are used to, including how to view life if you are a “disrupter”.
