Listen to inspiring conversations with thought leaders, experts, and regular-people-being-awesome (including me!) for tools, resources, and nuggets of wisdom to help you thrive.
Join me, Chiara, former corporate lawyer turned coach as I take a deep dive to discuss all things related to career transition, health + wellness, meditation, mindfulness, mindset, personal development, and spirituality.
We'll also explore what it looks like when the path towards greater meaning and purpose requires leaving your job or your chosen profession altogether.
You’ll hear from guests who made the leap including how and perhaps most importantly, why they did it.
Put it this way. If it will help you build a career + a life you love then we are digging into it on this show!
Half pragmatist and half spiritual seeker, join me as I explore these topics in a practical way to help you thrive no matter where you are in your journey!

Perfect is an empty but enticing promise. Unfortunately, in our pursuit of perfection we often focus on everyone else and abandon ourselves in the process. I often think of an image of a person walking a tight rope because for many of us that’s how it feels when we’re in “perfectionist mode” – walking a […]
