Paul Millerd is the author of the Pathless Path, which tells his story of leaving the high status consulting world to become a nomad, a freelancer, and a writer.

In this episode, expect to learn how Paul started to unwind and ultimately reject some of these stories and how we can find the courage to think critically about what we actually want in life and what really brings us fulfillment and meaning. Ultimately, how changing our scripts and asking the right questions can help us live a life on our own terms.
