Episode 26: Leslie Koc and Our Relationship with Money

Author, coach, speaker, and facilitator Leslie Koc joined me on this episode to talk about how our relationship with money impacts our decisions and ties to our perceptions of ourselves, as well as its role in making career transitions.

She also taught us a new word: “habitude!”

Leslie also shares about her career path from leaving corporate and lessons learned, including paying attention to what you want and listening to your inner voice. The show concludes with the weekly “Reignition Recommendation” career tip.
