Hire a career coach to find your life purpose and the right career

Are you feeling stuck in your current career? Do you want a higher quality of life, more freedom, more joy—but you're not sure how to achieve them?

If your daily life doesn't mirror your passions and dreams, you probably feel out of balance and unhappy. That once described me, too. I was in academia for many years, and despite loving both my subject and teaching, I came to realize I was disconnected from who I really was.

They say "do what you love, and the money will follow." I firmly believe that. And I live it. I examined my life and decided things needed to change. That I needed to change them. I chose what I wanted, took risks...and went for it.

You can too.

Know that if you feel stuck, you don't have to stay that way. You deserve to love what you do.

Consider this: do you know your life purpose? Are you living it? Do you wake up excited about your life and what you'll be doing today?

If not, what's stopping you?

I'm a nationally certified life coach, and I'll help you follow your calling and find the right career. It's my job and my delight to help bright, creative people figure out what makes them happy, then find the way to do it. Are you ready to take charge of your career—and your life?

If you'd like to have a free consultation to find out whether career coaching can work for you, simply email me.

Work and play are the same.
When you're following your energy
and doing what you want all the time,
the distinction between work and play dissolves.
-Shakti Gawain

Let the beauty we love be what we do.

A job is what we do for money;
work is what we do for love.
-Marysarah Quinn

Life is playfulness...
We need to play so that we can rediscover
the magic all around us.
