Career Change for Achievers: Part 1

If you’re an achiever who finds yourself in an average career that’s slowly becoming soul-draining, then listen up!

YOU CAN have a career that fulfills you, bring you joy, and brings you income.

Three years ago this month I became completely self-employed.

After college, I took a series of jobs that were not fulfilling and at the end completely soul-draining.

I was good at these jobs. I had the skills. BUT they didn’t fill me up – they didn’t help me to live my purpose and do what I enjoy each day.

Before you freak out – I’m not on a quest for everyone to quit their day job.

I am on a quest to help people find work that matters to them and fulfills them. I am on a quest to remind you that there is hope for a different way of life.

We spend more time at “work” than anywhere else in life. We NEED it to count in order to have an excellent life.

If you feel like you can’t change careers because of your previous education, your parents expectations, or any other reason your brain will throw at you, then STOP – let that GO!

“If you want to succeed in your life, remember this phrase: That past does not equal the future. Because you failed yesterday; or all day today; or a moment ago; or for the last six months; the last sixteen years; or the last fifty years of life, doesn’t mean anything… All that matters is: What are you going to do, right now?”  – Anthony Robbins

If you find yourself saying “I don’t know what I’d rather do.” then take some action!
