Careers in the metals recycling and waste industries can be difficult when considering the metal working, exposure to the elements, metal torching, baling and other jobs that must be completed to get the job done. Many employers have a hard time finding employees that want to work in these and other fields that utilize a mix of blue collar and white collar work. Enter Purpose! Katie Sandoe of Light Echo (https://lightecho.co/) visited the Dumpster and has been working with some team members on finding their purpose to help find purpose in their work and home lives. Finding purpose is as easy as answering these two questions: 1. What would you want to change about the world? 2. Who do you want to make proud? Put those two answers together to find your why and build your purpose. Katie discusses everything from gratitude, exercises to help you find your purpose and the importance of screening the advice that you get in your life. The concept of having a personal board of directors like a company does is an interesting thought as it involves vetting those whose advice matters most to you and going all in on listening to that direction and advice. Knowing who is important in your life is crucial, it is that ability to screen out the voices that are not relevant from ones that are. We love the scrap metal industry, but mostly because we love the people we work with and the people in our company. Really taking the time to explore that purpose and being open to whatever the answer is is the lesson of this Dumpster Talk!
