the lively show: lifestyle & career design with corbett barr (fizzle)

TheLivelyShowWithCorbettBarr

Today I’m talking with someone whom I highly respect (and may be a familiar face for many listeners), Corbett Barr.

Corbett is a co-founder and CEO of Fizzle (aff. link), an online business community and training platform for entrepreneurs.

I’ve been a member of Fizzle since April, and I love it so much that I invited Corbett to come on the show to share his story and passion for lifestyle design.

He’s designed his life around what is truly most important to him and his wife, after chasing the “traditional paths to success” in the highly competitive corporate and start-up worlds for many years.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to make an intentional shift in their life, career, or business that may seem uncomfortable or non-traditional.
