In this episode, Bruce Anderson from the Core Gift Institute talks with Mariel Amador.
On a fast track to leadership with a technology company in the Fortune 500, Mariel discovered the idea of gifts while on a guided reflective walk with other young people and made an abrupt U-turn out of that industry.
Instead, she made a courageous commitment to find work that was more closely aligned with her gifts. She talks about the power in gifts to help find direction, being alert to the power for good and for trouble that rests within gifts, and the comfort that can come when you realize others, too, struggle with direction.
We are talking to her today as she is finishing a year of teaching English in Spain, and on her way to Wales to be a mentor with Trek Epic, and outdoor adventure non-profit helping young people find purpose in their lives.
