Career change often involves taking risks and being a little bit daring, so we asked award-winning producer and strategist Kaaren Peterson to share a few insights on how our needs, responsibilities and attitudes at different stages in our lives shape the career choices we make.
Peterson has devoted her life’s work to storytelling—stories of people, businesses, brands, places and most importantly, ideas. She has directed documentaries in Bangladesh, produced a rock concert in a rainforest and raised money for humanitarian aid projects all over the world.
Her work involves helping people figure out their “why” or in other words, to find their purpose. From there, she works to develop a story that draws the crowd to whatever their business is.
