How do you find work that makes you come alive —and get paid for it? It's the ultimate question for a thriving life from the inside out.

But let's face it:

Most people are not doing what they love and rarely getting paid for it.

The fact is: work should never be separate from life. If we do it right, our work and life create a synergetic exchange of purpose, meaning, and financial freedom.

Enter the latest Academy guest, the one and only Gretchen Rubin.

She’s the author of the blockbuster New York Times bestsellers, The Four Tendencies, Better Than Before, The Happiness Project, and Happier at Home.

Fast Company named Gretchen Rubin to its list of Most Creative People in Business, and she’s a member of Oprah’s SuperSoul 100.

But it wasn't always that way.

In fact, Gretchen started her career in Law before making a hard pivot into the writing world and in today's episode you're going to discover how to do what you love, build rapid self-awareness, and get paid for your skills.

Ep. 207 | Do What You Love and Get Paid with Gretchen Rubin

Do you have a dream or a fantasy?

Now, let me explain with a dose of #RealTalk:

Most people have fantasies —thinking that ‘someday’ it’s all going to happen to them in a stroke of fortune:

A magical moment where Oprah finds them.
A magical moment where an investor shows up.
A magical moment when they’re ‘ready’ to start.

(Look at what these have in common: a reliance on an external event instead of using agency —the power of choice.)

And guess what?

Fantasies are like unicorns —they’re adorable little things but:

They stop you from showing up.
They stop you from doing the work.
They stop you from getting messy AF.
They stop you from asking for the sale.
They stop you from emotional resilience.

In today's Quick Hit, you'll learn how to ensure you have a real dream, an actual dream —versus a fantasy.

I'm convinced we don't simply choose our dreams —our dreams choose us. They come during the quiet moments of life through nudges and whispers and desires...until they're what we can't stop thinking about.

But then what?

For Mateo Askaripour —he had all the markers of success: making over 6 figures at a start-up, leading a big team, and rising up the ladder.

Until.

Until he faced reality: his dream was to become a writer, a novelist, and he'd do whatever it take to bring it to life.

But it wasn't working as he faced rejection after rejection and had to face himself:

Does he still chase his dream —or go back to safety?

Enter the latest Academy guest, Mateo Askaripour, the New York Times Bestselling Author of Black Black and a 2018 Rhode Island Writers Colony writer-in-residence. Mateo's writing has appeared in Entrepreneur, Lit Hub, Catapult, The Rumpus, Medium, and elsewhere.

His book is has been named: A Read with Jenna Today Show Book Club Pick, An Indie Next Pick, Apple's Best of January, Amazon's Spotlight Best Pick of the Month, One of Barnes & Noble Reads "Most Anticipated for January", One of Entertainment Weekly's "Best Books to Keep You Warm this January", One of Washington Post's "10 Books to Read in January" and tons more.

In today's podcast, Mateo and I deep dive into what it takes to chase your dreams, how to handle rejection, doubt, and pressure  —and wh you should have fun during your process.

It takes courage to own your desire, to put yourself on the line, to get radically honest about what you want.

Why? Because it's easy to "drift" through life instead of choosing what you really want —and 95% of people would rather deny their inner desire and live in a world of generalities.

In this Quick Hit, I'll share with you why owning your desire takes courage and why it'll make you feel most alive as you pursue the life that's for you.

Otherwise, the consequences are dire: a life you and I can't wait to escape from.

That's not quite living at all.
