Figure it out as you go & pivot to find the right fit

Karrie Stringer had no plan for what she wanted to actually do with her life. She just wanted to do work that she enjoyed and get paid for it.

Before she worked for herself, politics had overtaken good sense in her corporate workplace, and instead of working from 6am to 11pm for a few weeks of the year, it had become pretty much the norm for Stringer.

Figuring it all out as she went along and using the skills she already had, Stringer took the plunge and carved a path for herself where she can now work from wherever she wants in the world for the most part.

She now spends her summers in Greece building her business!

    Hi Caitlin Thanks for these awesome podcast transcripts as I am quite analytical and enjoy making notes. This one was really helpful and relatable because sometimes I hit a blank point regarding where I am going with my goals, especially if it is a negative outcome from an action I may have taken. But I realised it is better to have tried new things and enjoy the suprises along the way !
