I’ve been working since I was in elementary school. My very first gig was ironing the neighbors sheets for $.10 each (I swear).
Collected bottles from neighbors and cashed them in. Babysat. Made instant mashed potatoes at KFC. Sold tennis shoes at Van’s. Emptied bedpans at a nursing home.
All the horrible jobs, and very (very) bad bosses taught me a lot. As did the great ones.
Having a job that isn’t the right fit can be miserable! It can cause you to feel as though you just don’t fit in the world.
And the danger is that you can start to believe there’s something wrong with you. It doesn’t take long to begin feeling a little bit trapped, and lost.
I’m here to tell you there is always a way through. Always.
I’ve had a career I love for a long time now. Along the way, I earned my PhD in creativity and psychology (and the synergy of art and healing), and became a licensed psychotherapist.
Now I mentor bright, passionate women who are ready to step onto the path that’s just right for them, at this time in their lives. (Because it changes over time, you know.)
Plus, I get to do cool things like produce/host/engineer a weekly public radio show.
And travel all over the world, just because it makes me happy. I’m spending my birthday this year in Chiang Mai, Thailand (yep, I’m psyched).
Work + Happiness = Wow!
I really understand how critically important self-insight and self-knowledge are for career success. I’ve developed a simple, research-based program called Work + Happiness = Wow.
- when you know who you are,
- give yourself permission to have what you want, and
- combine that knowledge with simple, action-oriented brain strategies from neuroscience …
… well, then you are really on your way.
Yes, you can transition from a blah job to a career path that fits like Beyonce’s gorgeous golden-goddess costume at the Grammys.
Perfect, Easy Life, Right? Right.
