66. No Magic, Just a Step a Day to Your Dream
Christy Haussler left her six-figure corporate job to follow her dream of moving to Key West, Florida. In 10 months she replaced her income, earning more than she ever did working for someone else. Stepping out of her comfort zone, she is where she wants to be, meeting her heart’s desire.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
On her daily 85-mile commutes, she listened to all the audiobooks in her local library, then discovered podcasting in its early days. Becoming a “super consumer” of podcasts, she created Brick and Mortar Reporter podcast, spotlighting local businesses suffering from online competition and the economic downturn. Podcasting offered a way out.
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
First seeing corporate work as a way to earn more than a teacher’s salary, she learned she was dispensable to any corporation, despite her productivity. It began to dawn on her that the trappings of our consumer culture rob us of the life that we could live if we weren’t tied up in those things.
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
It takes great courage to overcome the pressures to conform. “You’ve got to figure out some action to take every single day, no matter what, to move toward the life you desire. There’s no magic formula, you have to work yourself out of the trap one decision at a time.”
