Episode 17: Navigating Your Life and Career with Liz Bronson & Kathleen Troyer 

By the time you've reached midlife, you've taken a few twists and turns in your life and  career. Too often, we try to bifurcate our lives and jobs as if one has no impact upon  the other, but that's impossible. You can't completely separate the different areas of  your life. They are interconnected. Your job and career affect your personal life, and  the individual decisions you make in life will impact your job and career. Today, our  guests on the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, Liz Bronson and Kathleen Nelson Troyer,  hosts of the Real Job Talk Podcast, share their own life and career journeys and the  wisdom they gleaned along the way.  

In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover… 

  •  Liz and Kathleen's career journeys.  
  •  The power of having clarity about what you want to do.  
  •  Why learning to say no helps you become clearer about what to say yes to. 
  •  How to embrace getting uncomfortable to get to what you want. 
  •  Why listening to your own voice is so important.  
  •  The magic that comes from women working together in community.
