My Guest: Steve Perkins
Steve Perkins is very familiar with the feeling of untapped potential. He spent 12 years searching for his career sweet spot, from building superconducting particle accelerators, to launching a culture transformation within a Fortune 500 company, yet always feeling that he wasn’t making the impact he was meant to make. After discovering his sweet spot, he started a company to help others clarify and step into theirs!
And Steve is now the founder and CEO of Greenhouse Culture, helping people get unstuck, clarify their Sweetspot, and get intentional about making their greatest contribution.
As a kid, dreamt of being an inventor. Was advised to become an engineer, which turned out to be a totally mismatched career choice.
Worked in “super-geekdom” creating superconducting particle accelerators.
Was intrigued by what his purpose in life really was, so began taking personality tests and performance reviews.
Was drawn towards the idea of opening his own business, and spent years clarifying his purpose, goals, vision and business plan.
Left his coveted engineer job and created Greenhouse Culture, a coaching firm that helps individuals turn their strengths and passion into career that they love.
