What's Your "And"?

Brett Cooper is always looking to feel more personally connected with others. It started out organizing activities for his peers at his first public accounting firm but then shifted to those less fortunate half the world away. After volunteering domestically for a few years, Brett decided he needed to be able to see and talk with the people he was helping, which led him to use his accounting background in India, Uganda, Kenya and now Rwanda. He likes that he is maximizing the value of businesses while also maximizing the value of his personal life.

In this episode, Brett and I talk about the beauty of sharing diverse experiences. It's crucial for everyone to determine their own happiness, know who they are, and own it. We also talk about the fear of being perceived as "not serious" if you show that you have passions that are equally important as your job. In the end, it's up to you to overcome that fear because, as Brett says, "Either fear dictates your choices or you do."
