Growing with Purpose Podcast: "Is It Too Late to Find Your Calling?" with Howard Spector
How late is too late to find your true calling? If you ask Howard Spector, every step we take is a lesson learned and valuable in its own way.
Today on the Growing with Purpose podcast, host Paul Spiegelman talks with Howard Spector, Co-Founder and CEO of SimplePractice, a software company serving health and wellness professionals. Howard is something of a late bloomer — he's held many jobs in his life, and for a long time he felt disconnected from his true self. But when Howard decided to go back to school to become a psychotherapist, he uncovered a passion for people that helped him forge his own path to happiness.
In this episode, hear how Howard found the courage to start fresh and make a change, and his journey to purpose-driven leadership. Tune into Howard's story here.
