Ease Isn't Always Easy

Doing our work in the world with ease doesn’t always equate to cheap + easy, whether that work is our career, our family, or our personal growth + development. There are so many misconceptions about work, with hustle, grind, and struggle on one end of the spectrum and ease + flow on the other.

Is it true that if you find your passion, you’ll never work a day in your life, or do we have to earn our success through blood, sweat, and tears? If these kinds of questions keep you up at night or you’ve been itching to find a middle ground, then this just might be the conversation you’ve been waiting for.
