Good episode? Give it some love!
Jenny Blake is a blogger, life coach, public speaker and author of ‘Life after college: the complete guide to getting what you want’. Jenny has been featured in the Wallstreet Journal, Forbes.com, and the US News and World Report, among other places for her work that aims to help young people ‘wake up, live big and love the journey.’ In 2011, she decided to leave her job at Google after 5 years to move to New York City and pursue her passion of being an entrepreneur full-time.

In this episode of the Smells Like Human Spirit Podcast, Jenny looks back on the hard work that led to her early professional success, her subsequent burnout in her mid-twenties, and ultimately the decision to leave Google and 'go it alone'. Other topics of discussion include society's obsession with wealth, the definition of success, and how college graduates can position themselves to pursue their true passion.
