Uncovering Your Life's Purpose with Aireka Harvell

Leaving a well paying job and starting a business is an incredible accomplishment. But doing so as a single mother of four children is especially noteworthy. And that’s exactly what today’s guest did. 

Aireka Harvell launched a successful app called Nodat and left her job to pursue it full time. She’s also launched Twende, a summit and accelerator program for founders of color.

Aireka is an extraordinary woman who has overcome a lot of obstacles to get to where she is today. She’s overcome drug addiction, she left an abusive marriage and she’s even a cancer survivor. Aireka is a shining example of someone who hasn’t let challenges get in her way. And I can’t wait for you to hear her story. 

Here are some of the things you’ll learn from this conversation:

  • The importance of “stripping” and how it can help you uncover your life’s purpose
  • How she got the idea for her app
  • How she knew it was time to quit her job
  • How Aireka deals with fear and the advice she gives for when you’re stuck or afraid
  • Why we shouldn’t fake it until we make it (and what to do instead)

One word of caution before you listen––there is some adult language and discussion of domestic violence in this episode. If this is sensitive for you, feel free to skip this episode or fast forward to the 15-minute mark.
