Welcome to the 41st episode of the Let’s Eat, Grandma Career Warrior Podcast! We are going to talk about how to do what you want to do not what society expects you to do.

I are going to take you on an adventure today with my friend and author-expert, Jordan Gross:

  • He’s a best-selling author of the book, Getting COMFY: Your Morning Guide to Daily Happiness (which was the theme of our 17th podcast).
  • He’s founded 3 different startups and helped many professionals to improve their careers including employees at Google and Amazon.
  • And another amazing fact: he’s a TedX speaker.

Here’s the thing: here’s why I’m bringing Jordan on today. He’s coming out with a new book called The Journey to Cloud Nine: which is all about the protagonist’s journey about doing what you want to do --- not what society tells you to do. The book discusses what life could be when you choose your path -- not someone else’s expectation of your path.
