Great post Steve! I love the Reboot podcast and their newsletter Allison Schultz often writes. Ready to move to the area yet? :) It’s for many of the reasons you mention that I’ve dedicated this part of my life after leaving MSFT to helping people build careers and lifestyles they can be proud of. I think everyone needs to find someone (a coach or like-minded group) that can support and coach them through the challenges and help them live an outstanding life — while doing meaningful work.
