This is a subject matter I’m incredibly passionate about, and that’s purpose! It’s the cornerstone of my methodology because we need purpose to serve as our guiding light when things don’t seem all that certain or when adversity strikes.
My guest today is Tallia Deljou and finding purpose is something she dedicates her life to and coaches her clients on how to ask smarter questions to really step away from your “work” or “parent” identity and really find what’s true and impactful for you.
In this episode, we learn about purpose. How you define it, how you find it, why it’s important, and so much more! People often think they've found purpose, but the moment they lose their job, or retire, or their children move out of the home, their purpose seems to crumble.
Tallia offers insight on how to cultivate purpose that’s so sustainable that it doesn’t matter when you walk away from an identity, you can still live an authentic and meaningful life.
[1:20] About today’s episode with Tallia Deljou.
[2:45] Welcoming Tallia to the podcast.
[5:45] How does Tallia define purpose?
[8:20] How do you really live a life of purpose when you have student loans, kids, and adult responsibilities?
[11:10] Is purpose a privilege? Don’t get in your own way. Don’t let this mindset stop you from striving for purpose.
[14:00] Everyone here has the permission to pursue their purpose.
[15:35] Your roles and identity are constantly changing. That doesn’t mean you picked the wrong path.
[17:55] People convince themselves they have to pick. In reality, you can have both.
[18:50] You get to write your own rules.
[19:00] How do we know when we’ve found our purpose or are just following a path we think society wants for us?
[21:35] List out all the different roles and personas you play in your daily life, whether that be as a spouse, a parent, a daughter/son to your parents, your friends, and more.
[26:55] When you have a purpose, you don’t pool everything you have into one identity.
[28:55] When your loved ones give you good advice, you still need to have a filter to see what parts of that information are true or relevant for you and where you are in life.
[31:10] Rapid fire questions! Tallia shares a book that’s really impacted her this year.

BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women
Scientifically Supported Ingredients | Support, Not Replacement | Non-GMO
Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation into my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics. Learn more or order the products yourself by visiting BadassFuel.com!
CALL TO ACTION
Tallia is all about diving in and finding what’s important to you, and how to be so unapologetic about it! If you are looking to strengthen your meaning and purpose in life, then get ready to go beyond the superficial and get into what roles and identities you play in your everyday life. What is your relationship like with yourself? With others? Are you convinced you can’t have it all? This is a limiting belief you must break.
This week, we’re asking you: What needs to change or be true in your life for you to have the best of both worlds? What are you currently playing small in that makes you not have it all or makes it difficult for you to truly live out your life’s purpose? Let us know over on my Instagram @DrMeghanWalker, or, our free Facebook group, The Entrepology Collective!
