What career would you choose if you knew you couldn’t fail?
“Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.”
– Max Ehrmann, Desiderata
This book is about how to CHOOSE and BUILD a meaningful and fulfilling career – the career you were meant to have. Here you’ll discover the 44 TRUTHS of how and why people really choose their life’s work and how they achieve true joy for themselves and others.
This book was written for all those who are either out of work, changing careers (like those leaving the US Military), are stuck in a job they hate, or are just starting out in the world of work and trying to find their true career.
If you’re like most people, you have what I call a JOB (Just-Over-Broke). Here you’re just trading time for money – just to make it through the month, and doing the same thing next month.
Without a career you’ll most certainly experience;
- Failure to develop all your talents
- Reduced total income over your lifetime
- Reduced retirement assets
- Reduced ability to contribute to others
- Failure to achieve your true potential
- Reduced opportunities for family members
- Greater chance of being a “burden” on your family
- Constant worry about not having enough; running out of money before you die
Is this really what you want?
How much longer will you continue your insane behavior; doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting a different result? There has to be a better way! Well there is and it’s time for a change – this is why we wrote these book. I can help you find the career you were meant to have!
One of my clients said it best when he wrote,
“Thanks to Ed, I learned the secrets of running a successful job search and in only two weeks I found my career position. I actually had two offers from which to choose and was able to leverage that situation into a 10% raise plus a bonus, all before I ever worked a day. Thanks doesn’t seem enough.”
– William S., San Diego, CA
I bring over 21 years of experience as an Executive Coach, helping hundreds of people, from recent college graduates to CEO’s, find meaningful employment. I worked for four of the largest consulting, outplacement and e-cruiting companies in America in Seattle, San Diego, and Kansas City. It was here that I learned how help my clients find their TRUE Careers – the career they were meant to have.
This book also explains how to BUILD the career you already have. It was written for those who already have a career field they enjoy, but are struggling trying to build a more meaningful and fulfilling career.
Most people wander through life, going from one job to another, just trading time for money. Worse yet, most people either hate their job, see no future potential for themselves, or are complacent about their career. It does not have to be that way. If this is you, then this book can help you!
Unfortunately, most of us learn this by either trial and error, or by just letting fate answer the question. And, some of us never find the answer.
I know it’s possible to experience joy in your work, because I have found it. I bring over 21 years of experience as an Executive Coach, helping hundreds of people, from recent college graduates to CEO’s, find meaningful employment. I worked for four of the largest consulting, outplacement and e-cruiting companies in America in Seattle, San Diego, and Kansas City.
It was here that I learned the SECRETS to finding and building your TRUE career; the career you were meant to have, the one that matters, makes a difference for others, and makes you feel needed, fulfilled, and alive.
This is why I wrote this book; to help more people than I had been, coaching one person at a time, to BUILD the career they were meant to have.
