This is more or less the essence of Stories for the future – how to live a good life and have an interesting job while also taking care of our planet.
That is why I think my conversation with Danielle Anderson from Step & Stone was the perfect start to this season. Also – since I have called this season Connecting Changes, I could not have found a more appropriate guest: Danielle has lived in four different countries, travelled to 75, and she has been through some major transitions in her own life and career.
In this episode we talk a lot about changes and all the steps involved in going through them. Danielle shares experiences from different stages of her life and career, why she left a very lucrative career path in JP Morgan, her work with the organization Climate-KIC and green businesses, and how it has lead to where she is today: running her own company Step & Stone from Nairobi in Kenya. And not the least, we talk about how it is ok to change our minds and pivot in a new direction. Because we are always evolving and we can’t expect everything to remain the same through our lives.
A must-read newsletter
As I mention in the episode, Danielle sends out the only newsletter I always read, and I highly recommend checking it out! You can find everything about her and her company at https://stepandstone.co.uk/.
Starting in February Danielle has a brand new program on her site called Simplicity. This is a 10 week accelerator program for entrepreneurs who are trying to make a living doing what they love, without giving up everything else in life. If you are a business owner like that and want to get focused, confident and get customers, you can check out the program here.
