Purpose Chasers, this is an episode that you do not want to miss. This is one that I just know will move you to action and transformation. I’m thrilled to introduce our incredible podcast guest for today, Dr. Patrice Buckner Jackson, a beacon of inspiration and a catalyst for transformation especially in the world of burnout.

In our captivating conversation, Dr. Patrice Buckner Jackson explores the intersections between people-pleasing and burnout. Dr. PBJ, as she’s affectionately known, brings her wealth of wisdom and her own experiences to the forefront, where we can see the path that led her to extreme burnout and what she was able to do to care for herself and literally transform her life.

With her latest (and fantastic) book, Disrupting Burnout: The Professional Woman’s Lifeline to Finding Purpose, Dr. PBJ embarks on a mission to disrupt the cycle of burnout and empower women to work from their heart. Her book goes into great detail, but we get a little insight into the stages of burnout and how you can determine where you are in this cycle.
