Patrice Tanaka, 68: Podcast “Living Your Purpose” During a Time of Coronavirus

Let’s get some positivity! Let’s use this time to help us prepare for what comes next. Patrice is offering a free! consultation to help you find your life’s purpose. Listen to the podcast for details.

At age 50 she discovered, articulated and began actively living her purpose — “To choose joy in my life, to be mindful of my joy, and to share that joy with others” — and experienced her life taking off on an unexpected and exciting journey that continues to this day!

Now 18 years later her consultancy, Joyful Planet, is helping people live their purpose and leverage their talents, expertise and passion in service of other people and our planet. Her work is focused on helping individuals and organizations discover and actively live their purpose to UNLEASH their potential and greater success, fulfillment and joy in their personal lives, workplaces and communities.

She started Joyful Planet because of her first-hand experience of the “power of purpose” in both her business and personal life. Her personal experience, extensive research and work in this area has led her to believe that purpose is a “competitive advantage” that can focus and drive us to accomplish what matters most.  In fact, “Purpose:  A Competitive Advantage in Business and Life” is the name of the chapter she contributed to the recent best-selling book, Performance 360 (2018), co-authored with visionary business leader Sir Richard Branson and others.

She believes that discovering and finding the courage to live our purpose is the single most efficient and powerful way we can unleash our leadership potential and greater success, fulfillment, and joy in our lives.

She was 50 years old when she discovered her purpose and “my life in the ensuing 18 years has been the best part of my entire life! I am passionate about the work I’m doing through Joyful Planet and, because of that, it doesn’t even feel like work and I will likely be engaged in this work until I die.”
