Over the last 25+ years, Nate has switched careers over seven times and knows many people's frustration in not finding purpose in their careers. We dig into this in a way that has yet to be explored, so if you are ready for the real deal on burnout, “quiet quitting,” and the cost of complying, this is for you.
