The Importance of Using Your Skills to Make a Difference in the World [Podcast]
How do you take your ordinary talents and use them for extraordinary purposes? Is it possible to turn a normal life into an amazing story? Only if you’re willing to have your world completely turned upside down.
At least, that’s what Lynne Kurdziel discovered when her life began to change.
This week, we return to the Wrecked Sessions to hear one woman’s experience of how she started finding fulfillment through serving others.

About our guest
While writing my book, Wrecked, I reached out to Lynne Kurdziel, wanting to find someone who hadn’t necessarily gone though a dramatic experience of life change in another culture but was still, nonetheless, changed by discomfort and compassion.
Lynne’s story is a great example of what it costs to find your purpose. It can sometimes be painful, hard, and confusing, but ultimately these experiences are designed to teach us that life is not only about us.
In this podcast episode, you’ll hear how my guest decided to use her business skills to creatively help those in need through her company Luminate Marketing.
I hope her story challenges you to consider how you could use your own professional skills to live a larger story.
