Purpose. It’s something we all want, but how many of us have actually found it? And if we’ve been lucky enough to find it, have we found a way to make a career out of it? US VetLife founder and Army veteran Scott Tucker has not only found his passion and purpose but he is out there every day sharing it with the world. USVetLife is an amazing company that is innovating both the financial and employment spaces for military families.
Scott is all about financial wellness. There is a shocking statistic out there that the average military family gets out of the service with only $5,000 to their name. We are so used to benefits taking care of us and, honestly, our financial education isn’t working. Here is the goal: learn how to use our money. We should be positioning ourselves financially for the eventual transition out of the military. There has never been a time like this in the history of the world, where so much information and access is available to us. But here is the catch – you have to want to go out and find the information and opportunities. Then, once you find it, you have to ask. Ask for help, ask for explanations.
So how do we tackle this? Scott suggests a modern, proactive approach. “Do we want to leave it to the government? Are we happy with the efficiency of our PCSs or do we want to take control of it our own selves?” I think we all know the answer to this.
In regards to finding and following your purpose, Scott says the key is to find a sustainable interest. Once you have that, think about how you can monetize it and make it a career. The more you can customize and find your niche, the more likely you are to align your passion to income.
This is truly one of the most exciting conversations yet on the podcast. We cover everything from strategizing financial solutions for your family to overcoming depression and finding your purpose. This episode is all about personal development and finding ways to align your passions to income. As an added bonus, Scott and I come up with a pretty fantastic reading list.
