QLC 023: What IS Meaningful Work? with Smiley Poswolsky

Today I’m excited to welcome Smiley Poswolsky to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

Smiley Poswolsky is a speaker and author of The Quarter-Life Breakthrough, a book he wrote to document what he was going through in his late twenties and help others navigate the same situation.

Smiley was working in an awesome job, making good money with all the benefits you would want. Yet despite all this, he had this feeling that things didn’t quite feel right. He wanted to write and create community.

After finding people who believed in his dreams, Smiley made the move and now shares his knowledge as an expert on millennials and the career market.

He describes his work as being for people who were told “That’s not possible, you can’t do that, you’re not good enough, you’re too young or too old, you don’t have the money or the connections, it’s too late,” and took a deep breath, listened to their heart, and went out and did it anyway.”

“Sometimes you just gotta go for it” (Tweet this)
