940: Kasey Compton – Finding True Joy Through Self-Awareness

In this episode of The Self-Employed Life, I had the pleasure of interviewing Kasey Compton, a dynamic entrepreneur and author of the book "In Search of You: How to Find Joy When Doing More Isn't Doing It Anymore." Kasey shares her personal journey of self-discovery and growth, emphasizing the importance of self-awareness in distinguishing between healthy ambition and pursuing something due to a sense of lack. She discusses the significance of being present in the moment and recognizing the signs of fear driving one's actions.

Kasey introduces a unique tool she developed called the "timeline," which helped her connect past experiences and memories to gain a deeper understanding of herself. We delve into the steps of Kasey's path to joy, including remembering, awareness, understanding, change, and choosing joy. Each step is discussed in detail, highlighting the transformative process of introspection and personal growth.

The conversation also touches on the concept of choosing joy and the significance of finding joy in the little things. Kasey's candid and authentic approach to sharing her story emphasizes the power of vulnerability and self-acceptance. The episode concludes with insights into Kasey's unconventional personality and where to find more information about her book and work.

Overall, the episode provides valuable insights into the journey of self-discovery and finding true joy, inspiring listeners to embrace self-love and authenticity in their own lives. Kasey's story serves as a testament to the transformative power of introspection and personal growth.
