Creating a life you love, in and out of the office with Sharon Price John of Build-A-Bear

Play episode

On this special episode of Mission Daily, Stephanie sits down with Sharon Price John, CEO of Build-A-Bear and author of the all-new title, Stories and Heart: Unlock the Power of Personal Stories to Create a Life You Love. Within just a minute or two, the discussion stops being an interview and becomes an insightful, inspirational conversation about the stories all working people have to tell by reaching as far back as their childhoods.

Throughout this lively discussion, Sharon and Steph share their own stories, highlighting the sights, sounds, feelings, and pivot points etched in their own memories to help dismantle the “mythology of success” as it pertains to the working world. One key takeaway? Life isn’t always a straight line, and it can be far more beneficial to take “the scenic route” on the way to personal and professional satisfaction. 

But, like life, this conversation is hardly a straight line, so we hope you’ll take a few minutes to listen and learn from this enlightening episode. And we also hope you’ll reach out to info@mission.org to share the stories that changed your world.
