“It’s as much of an inner game as it is an outer game, because the inner game is the only thing in this universe that you have control over.” – Grace Lee
What if all the problems we faced in our careers are simply unasked questions? With an incredible story of adversity from a very young age, to her training in neuroscience, today’s Finding Brave guest is able to give a unique and powerful perspective on the questions we can start asking ourselves to create lives of fulfillment and inspiration.
Dr. Grace Lee is a career educator, strategic reinventionist and neuroscience expert best known for being the founder of Career Revisionist – a global movement of professionals who are creating an inspired, purposeful, and abundant life. Grace is on a mission to redefine modern education, teaching men and women to develop strong business acumen, unlock true vocational confidence, and master their professional destinies. Her teaching and coaching programs are rooted in neuroscience.
With a 10-year background helping professionals advance their careers, Grace has deep empathy for those from very humble beginnings. Her personal journey from being orphaned and then homeless at the age of 9 provided the backdrop to develop resilience and resourcefulness to thrive.
Regardless of your current situation, Grace’s story proves that where you begin does not have to impede your future success, and ultimately your success always comes down to the important inner work and exploration that you are doing.
