EPISODE NOTES

Even as an adult, finding what you are good at and what you are passionate about (and subsequently where those two things intersect) can be a seemingly unsurmountable task. It’s easy to lose confidence to help your kids find those things as well. There’s also the ever present temptation to push your kids too hard or force them to laser-focus on things that they just aren’t passionate about.

This is where Dr. Meg’s conversation with career expert and author, Ken Coleman, can help the parents and the kids! Dr. Meeker and Ken talk about his book, The Proximity Principleand ways for moms and dads to help their kids as well as help themselves find that elusive “sweet-spot”. Ken Coleman is a Ramsey Personality and best-selling author, and he uses his life experiences to help people discover what they were born to do and provides practical steps to make their dream job a reality. Also, if you have a question you want Dr. Meeker to answer, email them to askmeg@megmeekermd.com and listen to future episodes to see if your question is featured!
