About Emily: Just after graduating with my bachelor’s degree, I started the Empower with Em podcast. At that point in time the podcast was just a passion project of mine, something I was building for fun alongside my social media platform. I was highly passionate about self-growth, so I wanted to create a way to take my learnings and share them with other people. That is what the podcast allowed me to do. As I commenced my studies in my Masters of Architecture, I realized that I began to invest more time and care into my passion projects than what I was investing into my studies, and the same was happening at work. I showed up for this degree and this job that I just was not passionate or excited about. When I realized this, I started to do some serious reflection and began to ask myself, ‘Why am I even doing this?’. The answer became clear to me. I was only in my job and my degree for the sake of pleasing my parents and boss. I wasn’t following this path because I necessarily wanted to; I was doing it because it was what I had been brought up thinking I ‘should’ do. When I realized that I was living my life on other people’s terms, I decided to do something about it. So after serious thought and action planning, I took the leap, dropped out of my masters, started building my own business, and went on to resign from my job in the architecture industry.
