“Don’t just do your job; do your purpose while on the job.” — Brian Buffini

Have you ever asked the question, “What is my purpose?” It’s clear we’re on this planet for a reason; the challenge is to discover that reason and dedicate our lives to pursuing it with passion.

In this episode, recorded live at MasterMind Summit®, Brian Buffini explores the concept of “purpose” and shares not only the benefits of knowing your purpose, but also outlines where to find it if you’re struggling to define what your purpose is.

You’ll learn the five symptoms of living with a hidden purpose, how to tell if you’re living an on-purpose life, the five areas to find your purpose and the connection between your purpose and your passion.

MasterMind Summit is an annual personal and professional development event held in San Diego. Click here to learn more.

“My father taught me that people could give me a bad minute of a day, but only I could give me a bad day.” — Mason Ludlow

Mason Ludlow began his career in retail as a trainee at S.S. Kresge, the company that eventually became Kmart. He quickly moved up through the ranks over his 25-year career, becoming the Director of Store Planning and Development at the height of Kmart’s retail glory. Although he loved his career—and racked up a million frequent flyer miles—he was feeling out-of-step with his family and struggled with work-life balance.

It took a journey to China to help him find balance—and himself. In this Takeover Tuesday episode, Mason shares his story with Dermot Buffini; from his Midwestern upbringing to his experience working in China to his return to the U.S. and finding a home at Buffini & Company.

He shares why teamwork is essential for building a successful business; why lasting success in the face of a changing industry hinges on checking in with your customers; and why it’s important to schedule play in your workday to be truly happy. He also shares great advice from his father that is sure to change your perspective on bad days.

Throughout his career, Mason has coached his staff to achieve more than they could on their own. If you’re ready to reach your full potential, visit buffiniandcompany.com/ccs to sign up for your complimentary coaching session.

“At the end of the day, you can’t win if you don’t finish the game.” — Brian Buffini
