Career

You know how some people feel frustrated and even exhausted each day, because they no longer feel aligned with their work? And they give so much of themselves, without the recognition or compensation they deserve… They are not alone.

For over 15 years I have helped people create the career path and life they want, so they get to do what they LOVE and make the impact they want to make.

 

 

“The whole experience was so valuable for me… I’m excited about my life and its possibilities again. The process took me from a place where I was frustrated with my current employment and dreamed vaguely of a more fulfilling existence to a place where I now am actively pursuing a concrete dream that fills me with excitement, passion and joy.”  – Kristin, Sacramento, CA.

According to Gallup polls, over 80% of the global workforce is not happy in their current employment.

This is a painful realization, especially considering the amount of time and energy we spend at work each day. Why would you spend such a big part of your life in a place where you are not happy, doing things that don’t fulfill you?

You may have valid reasons:

• financial security
• benefits
• maintaining your current lifestyle.

But wouldn’t it be nice to have a career and life you LOVE that would offer all that and more? One that would…

• fulfill you?
• add energy and excitement?
• let you make the impact you want to make in the world?

I’m not offering you a quick fix, band aid or a wave of my magic wand. But I do have a process to help you create a career path that you love, that fits you and supports you in making the impact you want while receiving the income you deserve. 

In this program we

• discover your values, strengths and skills
• uncover your purpose, what it is that gives you meaning in life
• and we create a plan with clear action steps to help you move forward toward your goal.

Will you have this dream career you’ve always wanted for yourself? I don’t know. Some clients do, for others it takes longer to determine what and how they want it. But I promise you, you’ll get closer to it than you’ve ever been before.

Interested? I’d like to invite you for a free 30 min Career-on-Purpose Discovery Session. I’ll help you get crystal clear about your current situation and where you want to be and I’ll offer you some powerful resources to help you get closer.

At the end of the session, I’d love to take a few minutes to check in with you about whether continuing to work together would serve you. There’s no pressure to continue with me and I won’t even invite you to work with me unless I think I can really help you. 

I look forward to talking with you!

Here are some things people said about what the Career-on-Purpose Program (formerly called CareerEscape) helped them achieve:

“Oh… that would take a couple of pages to describe wouldn’t it?  My attitude and willingness to grow and keep going down a (much stronger) path is directly related to our work.  Your willingness to challenge me, refocus my energies and point out tendencies that I had not seen in myself before kept the work interesting and vital. (But in specific..)

1. My ability to be more objective in interpersonal communication with staff who report to me. 

2. Recognizing and utilizing my strengths to bring out the strengths in others.

– Denise, Sacramento, CA. US, Program Director

“The whole experience was so valuable for me it’s hard to find things that didn’t work!  Your ability to grab words I was using to help me uncover dreams and desires as well as likes, dislikes, and fears was marvelous. I’m excited about my life and its possibilities again.  The process took me from a place where I was frustrated with my current employment and dreamed vaguely of a more fulfilling existence to a place where I now am actively pursuing a concrete dream that fills me with excitement, passion and joy.  I am able to see my current job as a valuable lesson and a place where I learned skills that will serve me in anything I do going forward.  I defined the dreams that had lurked below my vague hopes for a better life and simultaneously began a wholesale clearing of the thoughts and fears that were holding me back from pursuing those dreams.

Though still waiting to be laid off from my job, I’ve put together a list of services I’ll be offering in the coming months that speak to who I am, what I’m passionate about, and the unique contributions I have to make to the world.  I’m going to be pursuing a Masters Degree in the fall that not only moves me into a realm I didn’t think I could be accepted in, but will be custom tailored to my unique interests and qualifications.  While I have moments of fear about having no formal employment (translation: steady corporate job) I am filled with the sense that if I continue moving in the direction of my passion and joy, I’ll always find the solutions to whatever challenges crop up along the way.”
