Jeff Goins is a full-time writer who lives just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife, son, and border collie. On this episode I interview Jeff about helping you find your calling as a therapist. The path to your life’s work is both difficult and mysterious, which is why few finish the journey. Jeff’s latest book The Art of Work is about discovering your true calling—that thing you were born to do.
During our interview Jeff draws upon his personal relationship with two physical therapists to shed light on the mysteries of motivation and talent. Jeff shows readers how to find their vocation and what to expect along the way.
Jeff has authored three other books: The In-Between, Wrecked, and You Are a Writer. His website, Goinswriter.com, has been visited by more than four million people from all over the world.
In our interview Jeff walks us through the process of finding our calling in life. Jeff shares how to adopt a different mindset through the stories of people just like us who have married their passion with the needs of the world to live a life that matters.
