The Courage to Shed the Golden Handcuffs—with Ken Wentworth - EP 125
Four years ago, Ken Wentworth was offered the position of Managing Director at a top-tier corporation. Within 15 minutes, he knew there was something else he could be doing. Something that would allow him to help more people. Ken turned in his resignation to start something new. And today, he can honestly say that he LOVES his job. So, where did Ken get the courage to shed the golden handcuffs and take a different path?
