Finding Fulfilling Work – One Adventure at a Time
Engineer | PM | Founder | VC
Ideally we'd have it all: careers that align to our personal mission, are technically challenging, let us learn new things and grow, work with the best coworkers we could have, and pay us enough (and leave us with enough free time) to do everything else we want to do! In reality? We're making tradeoffs every time we think about going back to school or taking a job. In this talk I'll give examples of different career decision moments and how we can do fulfilling work and have long term impact.
