Hi, I'm Aine Rock


“I think that I like to look at it more so that I’m on a journey versus really understanding what my mission is, because I think that as we all grow and evolve, we may think that we have one mission in life, but then something else may be revealed.” – Ahyiana Angel

Ahyiana Angel used to work in PR for the NBA, a job she was great at, but not necessarily fulfilled by. Now she’s a published author, speaker, and podcast host with a fun new side project hosting workshops on Zoom. How did she make the switch? Today on Rock Your Joy, Ahyiana makes the case for viewing life as a journey instead of a mission.

We often feel confused or adrift when we don’t know our life’s purpose or mission. Ahyiana Angel, host of the podcast Switch, Pivot or Quit, believes that’s ok. For Ahyiana, life is a journey and this outlook allows her to grow and make leaps to other careers as needed.

Her new book, Quit Playing Small, is all about flipping your self-doubt on its head. She talks to Aine about her career journey, why she’s finding joy in Zoom workshops, and how she practices self-care, hint: she’s all about morning routines and giving yourself time alone to reflect. Listen and think about what you can do to stop playing small in your life.
