Ep 121 Creating Joy Drives Purpose and Fulfillment in Midlife

My challenge for you is to ask yourself, what role does creating joy for others play in your midlife fulfillment journey?

Welcome to episode 121 a takeaway episode from my conversation with Eric Wiechart on episode 120.

Eric and I had a very meaningful conversation about his experience in the Inspired Leadership Initiative (ILI) at the University of Notre Dame. Here are three key discussion points from our conversation:

1️⃣ Embrace Small Businesses
2️⃣ Overcome Transition Challenges
3️⃣ The Power of Cohort

Throughout his career, Eric acquired multiple small businesses/startups and ran them successfully. His most recent business, a glass company was transitioned to his daughter through a seven-year transition plan.

Eric didn’t want another idea for a business, or a job. Eric realized that creating joy for others gives him joy.

But, if you’ve been doing something for decades and you reach a point where you ask yourself, am I creating joy, maybe the answer to that question is not what you want it to be. It wasn’t for Eric Wiechart.

Eric realized that at this stage in his life, creating joy is his purpose. He’s doing it through many activities, not just one. He’s advising and coaching, as well as maintaining a sense of creating joy in all his relationships.

My challenge for you is to ask yourself, what role does creating joy for others play in your midlife fulfillment journey?
