Inspiring Success in Architecture for Small Firms and Sole Proprietor Architects

EA016: Five Ways to Embrace Your Personal Evolution [Podcast]

Play

EntreArchitect-Podcast-BadgeIn this episode I’ll share five ways to embrace your Personal Evolution. How, as we move through different seasons in our lives, our priorities change and the things that may have been important to us as an architecture student or as an emerging professional, may not be so important as we grow and our lives evolve.

It’s a short one, but I feel its a fascinating and important topic to explore.

  1. Great show, Mark. I find great benefits in staying flexible and positive in pursuit of long-term goals. For me, saying “yes” to change, uncertainty and re-“visioning”, instead of resisting it or fighting it, is a real key to growth – both professionally and spiritually. Thanks for the inspiration, and as JW would say – “keep up the good work!”

  2. As always, Mark, your podcasts and articles are so welcome, so much to the point, thank you for doing this for all aspiring architects out there!
    Talk about shifting priorities: you’re absolutely right- but we’re also changing as persons, in life. Think about 20 years ago when we were just out of school…
    For me, it was 12 years working at the same firm, a job that I liked and everything seemed “in line” professionally. Then suddenly we had to move from Canada to California. My dream was always to be an architect, and I managed to get licensed in both places. Trust me- California was not easy:) I also got a job here that I like (finally, after I tried a couple architectural offices).
    But after all these years, I realized that my priorities are changing. I think I can safely say that I’m OK professionally now here, but after jumping thru all these hoops in the past few years, I realized that I would like it better to do something on my own, having my own schedule and being my own boss. And I’m talking exactly what this website is all about- small architectural, residential oriented firm- I know that I can do it, I feel it. But somehow I’m not there yet- I guess it’s the fear of unknown, not having a “secure” job and all the reasons when you do such a change. Your website and podcasts are so helpful. almost pushing me to do this step. It’s encouraging to read how you, as other architects started and are prospering today!
