Do you worry that you’re on the wrong path in life? Are you focused on goals and outcomes or doing what you actually enjoy? And what if there’s more to life than chasing money or the need to be important? Before Doc G became a writer and host of the Earn and Invest podcast, he was like many doctors. But after years spent chasing outcomes, money and building an ideal version of himself, he realized he was in a trap. Today we discuss how he reinvented his personal and professional life based on what gave him a sense of aliveness and meaning. We’ll also dive into our fixation on money, safety, and why death can be a wonderful teacher. In this interview: Is life forcing you to change? Who are you if you’re not chasing money?
