I am so excited about this week’s podcast episode

6

This adorable creature is Jennifer Romolini, serial boss and author of Weird in a World That’s Not: A Career Guide for Misfits, F*kups, and Failures. We’re talking about work in this episode, and how to adjust our notions of what exactly success is, as well as how to remain relevant in the workplace after 40, impostor syndrome and so much more. It’s a really fun episode—Jennifer is one of my favorite people in the world, and so funny—so do listen in on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

    Great episode. Exactly what I needed to hear as I find my mid-career shift slowed down by our current moment.

    Literally exactly what Suju said. The fact that this podcast was available today makes me believe that sometimes the universe provides exactly what I need.

    In my experience, people take whatever job they can get because they need the money right now to pay their bills. The idea of “a career” sounds prestigious, but the daily hustle takes up all their energy, even when they’re young. Jennifer Romolini has evidently achieved the place where money and relative youth converge. She has enough money to pick and choose what to do next while she’s still energetic enough to look for more work. So, congratulations n’ all, but I don’t want GOACAs to feel like they’re alone if their real need is for just a job. The very real problem of how brutal it is to find a job when you’re over 50 was side-stepped in this podcast. Sorry if I’m being a buzzkill. I’ve read too many career books (including JR’s) and as soon as they get to the part where you’ve gotta network, I slam them shut.

    So relevant – As I get older, I find my priorities shifted and it’s about working just as smart as hard. Also, the never stop learning piece is so true – things are constantly being reinvented
