Who is responsible for your personal fulfillment?

WRAL TechWire columnist Jes Averhart provides a one-word answer that should not surprise anyone.

Who is responsible for your personal fulfillment?

In her latest column for WRAL TechWire, Triangle entrepreneur and thought leader Jes Averhart, Chief Executive Officer of Jes & Co and host of the “Reinvention Road Trip,” provides a pretty straightforward answer.

“Your personal fulfillment isn’t the responsibility of your CEO, your manager, or your board of directors.  Your happiness should not be on your partner’s to-do list. It should be on your to-do list.”

She continues with these thoughts:

  • If you’re in a rut, dig yourself out.
  • If you want to go deeper, do it.
  • If you’re feeling stale or uninspired, write down what sparks joy.
