Finding Your Way After College with Paul Girgis

Reading Time: minutes

Paul Girgis is an old and close friend.  Of all the guests on this podcast, I know him better and have shared more life with him.  He’s gone through a big shift in his career in the past few years.  I’ll let him tell the story, but it’s a really good one.

I think there’s a number of moments in his story that could be helpful for listeners.  How he’s moved from what he should do to what he wants to do.  How he continues to learn, grow, and pivot as he goes.  How he’s moves ahead with what he knows— knowing that he can’t have it all figured out and planned out.  And how he’s enjoying the process.

And so grateful for the chance to share this conversation with you.
