In the final episode of season 1, Kelsey recaps everything she has learned over the last 12 weeks since she launched the podcast. She sums up her overall experience by realizing that this is just the beginning and that going through this quarterlife crisis experience was probably one of the best things that have happened to her in years. Going through this period of feeling lost, has led her to meet more people, have more experiences, and now feel more aligned than ever before. Kelsey thinks the biggest lesson she has learned is that by removing fear from the equation, you can simply enjoy the journey. In Kelsey's last parting words, she recommends to simply have a blast while doing and enjoy the journey for what it is. Season 1 of Quarterlife Compass was all about sharing Kelsey's story. In Season 2, Kelsey will be focusing more on interviewing others and sharing their stories and advice. 
Tracy Timm, quarterlife career coach and career clarity catalyst speaks with Kelsey this week about her quarterlife crisis story and tells her about the Olympic athlete analogy. Some of us are built for the pool, while others of us are built for the track and how you can compare this to your work environment. We worry so much about what is wrong with us and what we should be doing better when really it’s not about that all. It’s just that we’re simply competing in the wrong race altogether. Tracy recommends to not immediately start applying to jobs right away but to determine exactly what it is you were built for, and start defining where you add maximum value. She recommends that you avoid Indeed, LinkedIn and job boards until you know with confidence and clarity what it is you want, instead of what it is you don't want. Kelsey learns how to take stock with a life audit in 8 areas in her life: physical, emotional, social, professional, financial, spiritual, environmental and intellectual. Kelsey ultimately hears Tracy's two biggest pieces of advice: make sure you talk with others to get help, and that once you have an idea of what it is you want to do, to then strategically share your vision with your network so people can help clarify your vision and help put the puzzle pieces together.    
Kelsey celebrates launching episode 10 of the podcast and reflects on how much she has learned over the last 10 weeks. Over the weekend, she attends her 4th year in a row at the Austin City Limits music festival and realizes that this might be her last year attending the festival with her best friends, Alex and Lexi. She also begins a self-development course called, The Big Picture, and works on creating a Vision Triad which consists of three pillars: your vision, your purpose, and your identity. Kelsey learns that when you change your story, you change your state. And that your thoughts create your feelings and your feelings fuel all of your actions. So if something is not feeling right, it’s time to start telling a new story in your life and choose different thoughts.
Earlier in the week, Kelsey meets with her friend Erick from The Metaprogramming Podcast to talk about editing software and building an audience. After 2 minutes into their conversation, they end up diving deep into a meaningful discussion about love and owning your truth. After, Kelsey learns that her Grandpa sold his farm to move into an assisted living home and Kelsey and her cousin buy last minute tickets to fly to Wisconsin to help him move and clean out the farmhouse. As she moves her Grandpa into his new space, Kelsey learns about the importance of letting go. She also talks with her cousin about his quarterlife crisis story and how he got through it. He tells her that by rediscovering passions he had when he was younger and deciding to invest more time into them, he was able to move forward in his life and feel less stagnant. Kelsey remembers a conversation she had with Courtney Harris about the importance of self-expression and finally determines what her self-expression will be moving forward.
