“I always thought retirement would be fantastic, and it wasn’t.”
Bump In The Road:
Zya Be On Life After the Corporate World
Zya Be built a successful corporate career in organizational change consulting, including starting her own company. She’s traveled the globe solo, contributed to a best selling book on creativity, and now she has her own podcast, Your Hell Yes Life where she tells the stories of other fearless women.
But fearlessness isn’t the only component of living a “Hell Yes Life”. The path comes with some bumps in the road.
“So I semi retired, but I was 48 at the time, and people at 48 are not around. So I was actually quite bored for a year.”
She realized that what she was looking for was a deep inner yes. Zya reflects:
“That one that I yearned to follow all those years when I was doing what I thought I should do, when I was just following the money instead of my heart. I finally made it out.”
Which raises the question of what does your soul yearn to do? And what’s holding you back?
Zya Be On Following your Yes!
“I want to be doing work that’s more meaningful.”
“Your hell yes is not about woohoo. It’s about following your deep inner yes.”
“I’m somebody that actually enjoys getting out of my comfort zone.”
“We are missing so much of the magic of the right brain.”
“We need more rebellious, happy, joyful people.”
“Following your own path is challenging. There is discomfort. But it is absolutely worth it.”
