Hear what can happen when you leave a fancy finance job behind to “give back” to the community. In this episode of Career Relaunch, Scott Lee, a former money markets broker in London who left his job behind to feed the homeless shares his thoughts on creating value, making a contribution to society, and how reading books can really change your life. I also shared a couple of my favorite books that had a major impact on my career.

Key Career Insights

  1. You don’t have to make professional decisions that make sense to everyone else.
  2. Doing work that feeds your soul can help you figure out what really matters to you.
  3. You don’t have to figure everything out on your own. A wealth of resources exist out there. You just have to take the initiative to seek them out and tap into the information.
