Tap Into Your Past to Discover Your Purpose

purpose Sep 05, 2018

When we grow up we tend to get told that the world is the way that it is and that our life should go as follows...go to school and get good grades, go to college, get a nice job, get married, have kids, save a little money to retire etc... I call BS!

Life doesn't have to be this way. We don't need to stick to the status quo of a universal plan. We can write our on lives, our on path. Instead of going through the motions of being lost and confused about what we want to do in life, let's take...

4 Strategies to Master Your Career Transitions

career Aug 30, 2018

There was a time when career paths were clearly defined. If lucky, you'd be hired on with a good company and progress to higher levels at the appropriate times. Ultimately, you'd retire having dedicated your prime years to the company.  Those days have long disappeared. It's no longer about company loyalty but about loyalty to self interests. The last two generations of employees have focused more on better compensation and job satisfaction. While employers have focused their attention...

Think Twice Before You "Like" That Post

personal brand Aug 16, 2018
On the recent season of the Bachelorette, the winner was criticized for liking highly inflammatory posts on Instagram. Even though he issued an apology the backlash to his reputation was continued to linger.
 
Last year the BBC reported on a landmark case in Switzerland about a man who liked the wrong posts. The court said, "the defendant 'clearly endorsed the unseemly content and made it his own' by liking the comments." The defendant was convicted and fined $4,100 for liking six...

The First Step to Mapping Your Career or Business Plan

Uncategorized Aug 09, 2018

When you think of a traditional business plan, you probably think of pages of text, graphs and confusing stats and numbers. You know, the kind of thing you’d nervously push across the desk to a bank officer in hopes of securing a loan.

Similarly, a career plan that list the results of job searches, contacts, upcoming interviews, and employment possibilities may also make your eyes glaze over.

I know these things are important but neither seem exciting right? And what I know to be true...

Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life

Uncategorized Aug 02, 2018

I could never do something like that.

Oh, I'm not that talented.

You need years of experience to do that job.

No one would ever hire me to do that.

I'm just not good with money.

Some people are just born to succeed.

I'm too old to wear something like that.

I bowed out because there are much more talented people doing the same thing.

Any of these statements sound familiar?

These are only a few of the comments I've heard my clients say over the years. Before I was trained in cognitive behavior...

Uncategorized Jul 26, 2018

It used to be that your identity was wrapped into your job. In fact, I believe people still suffer from that today. When you're identity is tied to your title, job or career you fail to see the possibility of other options. You fail to see the breadth and depth of all you have to offer. You also fail to see the importance of building a brand independent of your job.

In case you're struggling with this concept, repeat after me....."I'm more than my job!"

We live in a binary society that...

Uncategorized Jul 19, 2018

Have you heard of the Japanese concept called "Ikigai?"  Translated it means "the reason for being" or as we like to say...your purpose.

It's believed that when you discover your ikigai you'll find your purpose in life. I learned about this concept in the context of discovering my own gifts and how best to serve my clients by ensuring that I'm not only giving them what they need, but doing what I love. More importantly I learned the questions to ask to gain that clarity.

Are you one of the 85% of people in the world who dreads Monday morning?? Everyone, at one time or another, has been unhappy in their job. In fact, if you've gone through your life without hating at least one job, then you've lived a charmed life.
