How often do we say “no” to the things that are calling us? Or we say, “I can’t do that until I make $X.” Or we say, “I have bills to pay. Maybe when the kids are older.”
And how do we even know what’s calling us? In this guest interview, David Howitt will discuss what it means to Heed Your Call.
David Howitt, founder & CEO of Meriwether Group, is an inspiring thought leader and guiding mentor in the world of commerce. He is an accomplished entrepreneur with over twenty years of experience providing business strategy and brand counsel to startups and Fortune 100 companies.
David also used to be a corporate lawyer, wondering why life and work felt so terribly misaligned. But over the years, David began listening to his intuition, which led him to the life he fully enjoys today.
David advises that it is no longer enough to simply be a good parent OR a successful executive. No longer should we accept being a soulful and centered person OR an abundant professional. Commerce, our communities, and the world require us to be BOTH. Living from this place is what makes us the heroes of our own lives.
