Lydia Lee on How You Can Find Purposeful Work


In this weeks podcast I talk to Lydia Lee who is the Business Creator coach at Screw The Cubicle, web TV host at Screw The Cubicle TV, and podcast host of The Cubicle Crashing Podcast.  After leaving her six figure job in Canada years ago in pursuit of a path less conventional she became an advocate for location independency and meaningful work with purpose.

Now based in Bali,  she spends her time teaching people how to quit the jobs that are crushing their souls, discover their hidden talents, and make money doing something they love (and will care about).

Her mission and work has been featured on The Telegraph, Forbes, CNN Philippines, and Elle Canada.

During the podcast we talk about why Lydia decided to leave her corporate job and what the differences are between her life then and now. We also had a lot of time to talk about Ubud, Bali and the co-working community that she has found there.

This is my first podcast with a full video recording. Check it out below and let me know what you think in the comments on the Youtube comments.

Do you like the sound of Bali?

During the interview we spoke about how much Lydia enjoyed living and working in Ubud, Bali. I thought that it sounded like a great place for someone to go as a digital nomad. Check out this great infographic that contrasts the difference in life between London and Bali. It’s no wonder that so many people are jumping on the remote work revolution.
