This episode, I have Keith Clarke from Life Coach X, where he helps members of Generation X get the most out of their relationships and careers. Generation X are people that are born somewhat between 1961 – 1981, where Keith believes It’s even more important at their time of life that they don’t settle for what doesn’t make them happy.
The craving for the freedom to find our passion isn’t limited to a specific age group of people. In our conversation, we speak about what Generation X are most looking for in terms of fulfillment in their careers, their most common fears, and what they can start doing to overcome that feeling of “is it too late for me”.

Memorable Podcast Snippets:
“I think everything needs to crash every now and again just to reassess. Otherwise, we get comfortable and stuck into this rut where we start to become dependent on this way of life we’ve got. And the longer we’re in it, the scarier it is to pull out of it.”
“I went on my first sabbatical to Southeast Asia for 3 1/2 months and it was brilliant. I went to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Bali. I had never done anything like that before and the sensible side of me looks back on that now and says, ‘Maybe you could have waited and done that later,’ but I don’t regret that at all.
I think it actually taught me a lot about myself and what I needed in life, and if anything, it’s reaffirmed my decision to stay on this path of working for myself. The doors that it opens up. The opportunity to travel taught me how to connect with strangers and friends, how to live on a shoestring, all these things that are really valuable in the last 6 months since I’ve come back.”
