For the 20th and final episode of Season One we decided to flip the script a bit. I’ve had multiple people ask me where my interview is, and when can they hear me talk about my Ikigai. Jayne, my wonderful podcast manager and host of the Transformations with Jayne podcast, was one of those people and she volunteered to interview me for the podcast today. So enjoy this final episode of Season One, where I am in the hot seat being asked the questions. Thank you so much for supporting Ikigai with Jennifer Shinkai so far and stay tuned for Season Two!
If you enjoyed this episode and it inspired you in some way, we’d love to hear about it and know your biggest takeaway.
