Monthly Marketing Munchies Recap: Personal Purpose & Values

Welcome back Changemaker!


Last week was our August episode of Monthly Marketing Munchies, and it was an amazing one! Full of information and packed into our usual munchable length of only 23 minutes!)

 This month delves into the topic of “Personal Purpose and Values”. And it’s something important because there’s a huge sense of empowerment when you know yourself. 

As usual, for those who weren’t able to attend, we’ve attached a recording of the webinar below for you in this post! 


So what was this episode all about?


We already know the title, but what exactly are personal purpose and values? 

Personal purpose and values are a very important part of your life. 

They’re your calling in life and it’s what many people feel guilty getting paid for (because you’d do it for free if you could.)

To put it simply, it’s what brings meaning into your life (or work-life!)

And it’s important to understand our own values for many reasons. Asides from self-empowerment, when our values are aligned, we are engaged. When they’re not we become disengaged. This creates many problems in our relationships because we are misaligned from our self. 

That’s why getting clear on these allows you to have a point of reference for everything you do, helping you make intentional choices for your business or work life. Which then helps you to better create that change you seek!


Pretty awesome stuff right?


Which is why this episode is dedicated to giving you the tools and tips necessary to define your purpose and values. So that you can get clear on what lights you up and then, help light others up too.


And it also looks into:

  • What personal purpose and values are and the many forms they take
  • The concept of Ikigai and what it is.
  • Exercises to help you work out your personal purpose and values 
  • The types of values and how they apply. 
  • Why all of this is important!


If you’re interested in discovering your personal purpose and values so that you can have that empowerment and ultimately create better impact then just click play below!



And if you enjoyed the episode, sign up here for September’s Monthly Marketing Munchies which is “Building a Culture of Storytelling.”

Because if you want a brand that people rave about, you need to build a culture that people rave about! And that culture is grown through storytelling. 

We hope to see you there next month and we look forward to having you with us.
