Joel is Made to Connect (p2)

The conclusion of my conversation with Joel Hansen.

Joel Hansen is a 22 yr old from British Columbia, showing us just what Generation Z is truly capable of as they discover and do what they’re made for. Joel is the Business Development Manager for a PE firm, he is a Youth Editor for LinkedIn. He also speaks, writes and regularly advises companies on marketing strategies. 

Joel is making connections wherever he lands. He carries an incredibly teachable spirit with him, so it’s no surprise he has learned a ton already in his roles, and has a lot to teach us about setting up great habits so you can do what you’re made for and reach the goals you’re meant to reach. 

I love how freaking practical this conversation is. 

Joel goes a little into his story of discovery, but mostly he’s got lessons learned while grinding away as a young professional. Learning his limits, learning the system, and learning how to make connections that count. You’re gonna love it. 

We’re starting something new here and splitting our conversations in half to make the episodes shorter meals to chew on. So Joel and I chat here for a while, then we’ll take a break and invite you into the conversation again later this week.  


Highlights from the episode:

“Social Media can be one of the most dangerous things, but it can also be one of the most constructive and informative tools in our day.” 8 mins
