Listen: Defense attorney turned chocolatier shares his advice for 'meaningful work


Do you find yourself googling “what should I do with my life”? You might want to listen to this interview with Shawn Askinosie, founder of a small-batch chocolate business and author of “Meaningful Work: A Quest To Do Great Business, Find Your Calling, and Feed Your Soul.”

Askinosie, who was a criminal defense attorney for 20 years until he decided to try something new, shared the story behind his business as well as advice for aspiring entrepreneurs.

"It was after one particular murder case, I decided OK, 'This is enough," Askinosie said. "I loved it until I didn't, and I think a lot of people fall into that category."

Askinosie's advice? Ask yourself these three questions to start on your journey to "meaningful work":

  • What's your passion?
  • What does the world need?
  • What is your skill set?
