I’m Samorn Selim. 

I’m a lawyer turned career coach on a mission for us to take our careers from dread to joy. As the daughter of poor Lao refugees, I was told to pay my dues.

After coaching over 1,000 clients, I now realize that the idea that you have to pay your dues and work in a toxic place is a myth. 

We can face our challenges head on, do work we are passionate about, and work with good people with kind hearts to make a big impact. So even as we struggle, we can find a sense of belonging.

Did the pandemic make you rethink your life’s purpose?  In this episode with Tammy Dain (Co-founder of Rabble), we discuss:

- How to continue to do the work you love not in spite of (but because of) all the challenging things going on in the world.  

- Why your appetite for risk determines your success.

- How to help people with compassion.
