Description

‘Do what you love and you’ll never work another day’ We spend 1/3 of our life working away and we see our co-workers more than our family at times. If that last sentence is depressing to you, well, this is going to be THE podcast for you. Every week, I talk to people who see work as a lifestyle (Crazy right? I know, just hear us out), they pursue something called - passion career. We talk about what got them where they are, their relationships and identity with work and what it means to have a career as your passion. If you ever had a dream lifestyle, this podcast might edge you to take that leap of faith! May you Mondays be ocean blue.

Podcasting is growing to become one of the mainstream media platforms, we are seeing more and more celebrities and sponsors getting in the game. The beauty of podcasts is the intimacy you can get directly with your audience, but there is still an apparent gap in the types of stories we are getting, so Jerry took it upon himself to build a media company to amplify the voices of Asian Americans. Here is our chat about how he left the corporate world to pursue his passion! Follow Jerry on:Instagram_ @Jerryjwon https://www.instagram.com/jerryjwon/ Club House_ @JerrywonLinkedIn_ https://www.linkedin.com/in/jerrywon/ Just Like Media_ https://www.justlikemedia.com Want to share your story?

Hello Humans! Welcome to new and improved Awkward Turtle - Season 2. The Awkward Turtle - At Work. This podcast is all about people, passion and profession. With me, your host, Emery.Now, the reason why I wanted to do a podcast about work, is because I have realised something quite bad and unhealthy. I have realised 90% people I know hate their jobs and hates Monday. And I am sure you know what I mean. Work is always a word we avoid during evenings and weekends. But why should it be this way. Work is huge part of our identity as a person, it shapes our lifestyle and our communities so imagine how much more fun we can have if we actually loved our jobs?!
