The average American spends five and a half times more hours working than they do pursuing their hobbies, yet, 80% of us are dissatisfied with our jobs. Is this just the way life works? You’ve gotta keep up with the Joneses and a job is merely a means to an end – money to live an exciting life outside of work. What if that’s not the only way? What if you could weave your passions into your work to build a career that fits you, that brings you satisfaction?
Whether you love your job, or hate every minute of it, join us for a talk exploring what Gage calls a “one-pot life”. We’ll hear stories of people who escaped the 80% to find a more fulfilling career on the other side, including Gage’s personal journey, and the tools, methods, and tips he’s learned along the way.
