TRANSCRIPT

Hey there, Pathfinders! Welcome to The Pathfinders Podcast. My name is Taime Koe. I am your host, and I'll be interviewing people with interesting uncommon jobs or life journey—because sometimes life isn’t as straightforward as you think. 

I’m hoping that, by learning about what other people have gone through, it will help inspire your own journey in finding your own passion and purpose and decide on what you want to do for a career.

I want to give an introduction to the show and tell you the background on why I'm starting this podcast. Sometimes life isn't as straightforward as you think.

I’ve been running a blog on personality psychology and self-improvement for 3 years, and I constantly get questions from teens and young adults asking a range of questions from how to figure out what you’re interested in, or if you’re interested in many things, how do you decide on what to do, how to choose your career, how to motivate yourself to accomplish your goals.

And I’ve come to realize that for a lot of people, including me, figuring out what you want to do in life is very difficult. This is a problem not just when you’re in school. Sometimes even for adults as well. For most of us, growing up, we're lead to believe that we should know the answer to "what do you want to be when you grow up?” since you were very young, even before you graduate high school, so that when you get into university, you can pick the most relevant field to study, then work in the exact field you studied for.

@@Life isn’t straightforward. You can end up somewhere you’ve never known to be possible before.@@

But this isn’t true for a lot of people, and sometimes the journey through life isn't as straightforward as you think. You can end up somewhere you've never known to be possible before. I want to interview guests with an uncommon career you might not have heard of growing up, or people with an unconventional life path and talk to them about how they got to where they are today. I want to show you the possibilities you might never have imagined, and that it is possible to pave your own path.
