Are you stuck in your zone of excellence?

This is what people want to pay you for and recognise you for. It’s deeply integrated into our identity, and it can be tricky to escape. You may have impact in your zone of excellence, but you won’t feel fulfilled.

Now imagine your zone of genius – the place where you are still excellent at what you do, but also more on-purpose and experiencing more vitality and joy!

When we want to change our career, what we are really yearning for is to operate from our zone of genius.

In episode #30, you’ll discover why you need to leave your zone of excellence, how to connect with your zone of genius and part of my personal Human Design that informs my genius.
