What’s up, everybody? This week, I’m joined by Lydia Lee, founder of Screw the Cubicle and creator of 90 Day Launch. She’s here to share how she transitioned from the corporate world to living a life of purpose and doing work that matters, and how she’s helping her students do the same.
Stop trying to look good in your business, and start being good.
Six years ago, Lydia had hustled her way up the corporate ladder and landed a comfortable six-figure job. Despite her success, she knew she wasn’t happy. After a realization that this wasn’t the life she wanted -- and a bit of a breakdown, some therapy, and coaching -- she quit and started her own business.
Screw the Cubicle is all about helping people transition from corporate shackles to satisfying work, and the freedom to do it on their terms. Lydia’s course, 90 Day Launch, guides her learners to map out their processes, craft the framework of their offer, and launch their next big thing that matters.
"Remember not to burn bridges when transitioning from employee to entrepreneur."
"Sometimes staying small strategically, and making enough to afford the life you want, is enough."
"The future of work is in small business, is in everybody in their communities creating an impacting change through what they do best."
"The world is much bigger than our zip code... when you travel and are able to listen and learn from other cultures, you are a much better human."
