Have you ever felt unfulfilled with where you were at in your career? I think we all have at some point! The story I have for you today is with Janet Murray, the founder of Soulful PR, and it’s a powerful example of just how quickly our lives can change for the better when we pay attention to when we feel unhappy and then do something about it!

Janet shares how she went from being a school teacher to becoming a journalist to eventually starting her own blog and creating online courses. Now she helps women all over the world get their own PR and get featured in places like the Guardian, Huffington Post, and Marie-Claire.

There are so many gems in this interview for how to design a business you love – from letting go of your ego to simply quitting what isn’t working anymore.

Be sure to leave a comment with your biggest takeaway from this episode to be in with a chance of winning Janet’s amazing book: Your Press Release is Breaking My Heart – a Totally Unconventional Guide to Selling Your Story in the Media.
