Does your work fulfill your spiritual purpose?
On this episode of Love Period, Majora Carter joins Jacqui to help us understand what it means to be inspired to create a professional life that is fueled by spiritual principles.
As a real-estate developer, urban revitalization strategy consultant and MacArthur Fellow, Majora Carter’s thriving professional life is built on the moment she “found real meaning in the scriptures when Jesus says, ‘there are only two important laws: Love God and Love thy neighbor.’ And I realized—that is what I do! I love God and I love my neighbor. My work is a manifestation of that.”
We hope this engaging conversation inspires you to shift your way of living—and giving—to the world.
