In This Episode

How do you escape from the burnout trap?  What is the path from merely existing to really living?  What will our kids learn from our work habits?  Join us for the compelling answers on today’s podcast.

Hey there Innovators!  Today’s guest has seen the world from many angles and has some perspectives on how to find a life worth living.  As the old proverb goes,

“Find something you love to do, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

Our philosophy at Table Top Inventing revolves around helping students find the joy in learning.  We believe the first step to a happy life is to explore then to do more of what seemed to work.  That doesn’t seem too complicated, but how many of us have worked in jobs we don’t like, all the while telling ourselves we really need the money?

We never want students to wander into life without an idea of what they love to do.  If your student or child is creative and inventive, go to InventingZone.com to find out more about how Table Top Inventing can help.

Today’s guest is from Hawaii, but not too long ago, he lived in Milwaukee, WI.  He was sleeping 4 hours a night as a bread delivery guy and not getting much time with his kids, but now he’s writing and speaking and loving life.  How can such a change occur?  Let’s find out!

About Kimanzi

You can see my words in cool places such as the Huffington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, Mind Body Green, the Good Men Project, Fox News, and many more. My books have sold over 100,000 copies and my new book, Stop Chasing Influencers, drops later this year. In the last three years, I’ve lost 170 pounds and moved our family to Maui, Hawaii. My goal is to help you create freedom in your work, health, and relationships and live your dream life. Join me at KimanziConstable.com and Kimanzi Constable on Facebook.

What is the Purpose of an Education?

“Education can help you go where YOU want to go in life, if you make it YOUR journey.  As long as you’re not trying to live somebody else’s dream and you’re not trying to live the life that somebody else thinks that you should get, education can give you the tools.  It can give you the knowledge.  It can give you the resources to live the kind of life that you want to live.”  —Kimanzi Constable

Aloha“I loved books growing up.  I loved to write.  I wrote poems and songs and books, but when I became homeless at 17, that’s kind of where the dream died.”  —Kimanzi Constable
