How do our career choices reflect and shape who we are?
This week’s episode is the second where we look at how our career choices help to reflect and also shape who we are as people.
In today’s episode, I talk with Lachlan Palmer, a qualified mechanic and the founder of start-up online mechanic business Kashy’s.
Lachy’s passion for pulling apart motor vehicles started as a very young child, but it’s also from that time that he began to suffer with a mental illness, which would later be diagnosed as depression. His struggle with his mental health and his idea of what he ‘should’ do as a career path led to a near-fatal turn of events late in high school.
Thankfully, Lachy has come back from that low point to follow the career path that makes him happy, surrounded by great friends and his beautiful fiancé. And he’s also the biggest advocate for getting the right support for your mental health.
In this episode we follow Lachy’s journey from the little kid who was bullied in high school, to the ambitious business owner he is today.
