Are you feeling burnt out from your career? You’re not alone.

The feeling of exhaustion is something many of us have in common with our professional lives. But how do we address it, call it out, and move to a new path that gives us real meaning?

My guest today is Kyla Cofer. Kyla has been on the starting end of multiple nonprofits and businesses and has spent almost 20 years in the pursuit of justice and being an advocate for numerous causes.

  • Personal mission and vision statements
