Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Episode 6 – Let’s chat about Sabbatical

Are you pondering about doing a sabbatical?


(You can also listen to this podcast from iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Pocket Casts, and RadioPublic)

  • Do you know that in order to accelerate and grow, one needs to slow down for a period of time?
  • Are you aware of what matter most to you now and how different they are compared to 5 years ago?
  • When was the last time you allow yourself to deeply be inspired by something that is so different?

Join my conversation in Uplift My Life Today podcast with Julie Grauel about our respective experiences with taking multiple sabbaticals. Julie has been  working for 25 years and I for almost 20 years.

We are sharing our thoughts on what sabbatical was good for, what it gave us and how to plan for one.
