Think Differently about Work, Culture, and the Economy

Think Differently about Work, Culture, and the Economy

It's easy to lose your way in the 21st-century economy. The world of work and business is changing so rapidly that you might start focusing more on how to keep up than how to live a meaningful life. What Works is a podcast for entrepreneurs, independent workers, and employees who don't want to lose themselves to the whims of late-stage capitalism. Host Tara McMullin covers money, management, culture, media, philosophy, and more to figure out what's working (and what's not) today. Tara offers a distinctly interdisciplinary approach to the discourse around business, work, and personal growth.

A Radically Different Approach to Goal-Setting

What Works is an antidote to the relentless pursuit of “more” and the culture of striving that we live in. It’s an unconventional approach to goal-setting, planning, and execution that prioritizes practice over achievement in both life and work. Not just a call to slow down or find the joy in missing out, What Works walks the reader through a framework for examining what’s driving their pursuit of more, setting commitments to orient their growth, and organizing their action as a learning process.
