But no amount of journaling, personality tests, experimenting, volunteering, taking classes, making lists of things you’re good at or would do if the money didn’t matter has gotten you any closer to the answer.
In fact, you feel more confused than ever. The swirl of advice you’ve gotten from blogs, podcasts, and well-meaning family members has drowned out your own voice and desires.
If you only knew what you wanted to do, you wouldn’t let any obstacle get in your way.
But another month -- or worse, year -- has passed with no answers in sight. You’re ready for support.
You need someone who can see who you are, nurture what you're capable of, and give it to you straight.
After spending a glorious day working on set of a primetime television show, I had an outrageous thought: “I’m not sure I want to do this anymore.”
I had chased my dream career of being an actor for a decade and was making real headway. But at the literal end of the day, I longed to do work that felt like it mattered more. The only problem was that I didn't know what that was.
There was no holistic guidance that integrated what I wanted from life with real-world considerations like income and starting over mid-career. I needed something that could do more than help me pick a survival job. I wanted a career that felt like home.
After years of struggling and becoming a default expert in what didn’t work, I finally hit upon a counterintuitive approach that led me to find a career I love. Now, my meaningful work is helping you discover yours.
