Taking your Career from Blahh to Rahh!!

Did you miss my call today?  We discussed this and so much more:

  • Are their any special question or steps for those in the nonprofit sector? I am passionate about my work and I can NOT leave the community I work with, even though its killing me.
  • I worked for YEARS to get this title….how can I be expected to give it up?

I shared  key steps/ stages of successful career transformation (based on model by William Bridges in his groundbreaking book,Transitions.)

Reinventing yourself requires time, and a great deal of courage, strength, patience, self-love, and faith. Let this call be the first step on your journey!
