Overshare Podcast: Tina Essmaker on Resiliency and Embracing the Great Contentment
WORKING NOT WORKING
Overshare is a podcast and event series hosted by Working Not Working co-founder Justin Gignac. In a world of carefully curated portfolio sites and Instagram feeds, Justin sits down with his favorite creatives to get past the highlights and discuss the tough stuff we don't talk about in public often enough.
For Episode 11, Justin sits down in the studio with Tina Essmaker for a deeply personal conversation. Tina opens up about loss, divorce, resiliency, and new beginnings as she moves on from her role as Co-Founder and Editor in Chief of The Great Discontent. She embarks on this next chapter of her career as a coach, speaker, and writer with courage and enthusiasm.
Tina has made a career out of listening to and supporting others. For more than a decade, she was focused on social work helping runaway and homeless teens. Then co-founded TGD where she interviewed over 250 artists, makers and risk takers, including Cheryl Strayed, Debbie Millman, Reggie Watts, Tavi Gevinson, Leon Bridges, and Krista Tippett.
In this episode, you will learn how to pick yourself back up in difficult times and create a life from the inside out based on what’s important to you instead of reacting to outside pressures and expectations.
