About This Episode:

Today we’re delving into the romantic / dating world. As Career Warriors, I think it’s so important to discuss this topic, because our relationships (and even our dating life) can be so heavily tied into our careers--as well as mental health.

A Harvard study followed 268 undergraduates for 75 years, regularly collecting data on various aspects of their lives. This was the Triumphs of Experience: The Men of the Harvard Grant Study. The study found that loving relationships are most important for meaning and happiness. Even individuals with successful careers and good physical health were not fulfilled without loving relationships.

So, we’re are going to talk about some really cool things during this episode:

  • Things like...taking care of yourself while you are in the dating world -- when you may be in a job search or trying to crush it at work.
  • We’ll touch upon confidence and the emotions involved in this process.
  • And we’re going to talk about the hottest topic ever: online dating. Love it or hate it -- it’s part of the dating landscape now, and we’re covering that too.

Emily Griffiths is making her second appearance on the Career Warrior Podcast. Emily is a licensed therapist here in Austin and is an expert in helping us deal with many of the emotional challenges in our lives. I met her because she is a mentor at Capital Factory, where she helps founders, CEOs manage the emotional side of their entrepreneurial journey. She’s a rockstar, she’s also excited to have this conversation with you guys.

Don't forget about our 2019 sharing contest. Every month, we will give listeners the chance to win 2 in depth resume consultations with me. I will personally get on the phone with you and help you to rewrite your resume and get targeted in your job search. All you need to do is share any one of these podcast episodes on Facebook.
