In this Expert Insight Interview, Jenny Fenig discusses intuition and finding your true calling. After a successful corporate career in NYC, Jenny Fenig became an entrepreneur and intuitive business coach empowering females in the online business.
The interview discusses
- Finding Passion
- Creating Relationship with Yourself
- Choosing More Quality Time
Everybody experiences ups and downs during their life. When pandemic started life as we know it stopped, so now it is a great time to rethink what we want to do. Was the plan we had earlier something we really want to do or was it just because someone told us that is how it should be. Making a corporate career somewhere in New York City might not be the right thing to do if your intuition, that little voice within yourself says that it is not right. It is important to find a job we love and are passionate about because that is how we spend our everyday life.
Relationship with Yourself
One good thing to come out from this pandemic is that it brought people back together. We are so busy with our lives and we are used to doing everything individually, that it is a nice feeling to spend more time with the family because that is where the most genuine support comes from. This is a great time to show to the youngest ones that even though we all feel confused now, with faith, patience, and discipline we can go through current challenges. The system we inherited was already flawed, thus the one we will rebuild will bring a positive change. However, just like how martial arts and yoga teach us, the real change comes from the relationship you create with yourself. People became so obsessed with social media and picturing the perfect life, but the real question is when all that superficial disappears and we stay on our own, do we like what we see then?
More Quality Time
Considering that pandemic affected us all, we can all take part to make a change for the future. It is unusual to see LAX, one of the busiest airports in the world, completely empty. But it does raise a question, how much will business travel change? People realized now that there is no need for in-person meetings when meetings can be held online as well. We found ways to do almost everything online which will be productive for future business in terms of cost, time, and efficiency. Less work travel both by air and ground will enable people to spend more quality time. There are plenty of beautiful destinations that may be a half-day ride from where we live that we never ever thought about going to visit, for example. Many people started visiting places by their RVs again. It feels like people started returning to basics, which can have a positive impact on humanity as well as on the environment.
