Happen to Your Career
Become Indispensable

No matter what type of life change prompts you to rework your career journey, there are always ways to improve your situation and stay ahead of the career change game.

Today's show features Enrico Torres, an unassuming entrepreneur with a work ethic that perseveres through constant improvement. He spent over two decades working as a restaurant kitchen manager and a roofer before deciding that he needed a change (for the better) to accommodate his new life as a father.

His motto to become indispensable continues to carry him through his ever-evolving career changes as he believes in focusing on working harder to improve yourself to be better than the last guy that had your job.

Listen as Enrico shares his biggest takeaways from starting his business from scratch, while working his day job. He talks openly about his experience of making his dream happen and how the hustle never stops, especially when you become an entrepreneur!

Regaining Perspective

Have you been living a calculated, box-checking life?

Are you tired? Bored? Wondering if there is more to life than just sleeping, eating, and working...just to repeat it the next day?

Are you looking for a change of pace, lifestyle, or career?

That is exactly how our guest, Tracy Timm, felt after checking off the boxes of graduating from Yale and getting a job on Wall Street out of college.

Tracy began to feel the effects of the classic "high-achiever" looking for more from life than just her job- which began to make her miserable.

After deciding that picking misery and safety over an actual fulfilling life was not how she wanted to continue, she laid her cards on the table for her employers and ultimately left Wall Street to begin her entrepreneurial journey (after her trip around the world to regain a new perspective on life, of course).

Listen as Tracy shares how she got her perspective back to make the switch from the corporate life to a life defined on her own terms.

Bridging the Career Change Gap

Can you answer the question: “Do you know what is most important to you?”

Think about it. Then, think a little harder…

If you aren’t sure what is important to you, from the things that you want to do, to how you spend your time, and to who you want to spend your time with, then you’re missing out on the potential career (and life!) opportunities that are out there for you.

By not knowing the things that are important to you, you are leaving yourself to just accept what opportunities you THINK are available to you right now.

In today’s episode, Scott answers a couple of questions that deal with how to bridge the gap between getting from where you are to where you want to be in your career.

If you’re wondering:

- What you need to do to get from this job to THAT JOB that you’ve got your heart set on, or
- How you’re supposed to make a complete career change without the proper education

Then today’s episode is worth a listen.

Volunteerism and the Hidden Job Market

Did you know that as many as 80% of all jobs needing to be filled never make it to an online job board?

Most people don't even know that there is a hidden job market out there.

And, if you do know about that hidden job market, you're probably wondering how you would even go about tapping into it.

You're in luck! Today you'll hear from Mac Prichard, a public relations strategist and the publisher of Mac's list, the premier resource for connecting passionate professionals to meaningful and creative work throughout Oregon and SW Washington.

In today's episode, Volunteerism and the Hidden Job Market, Mac shares why you shouldn't overlook professional volunteerism when it comes to furthering your career or when you're looking to make a career switch.

He provides insight on how you can be strategic in your volunteer opportunities and how easy it can be to build a strong network of industry professionals during your career search.

As Mac puts it:
Volunteering "gives you a chance to show others what you can do. It gives you an opportunity to connect with leaders and influencers in your field."

Listen to my chat with Mac as we'll also get into how you start that conversation about volunteering in the career field that you're interested in to get you ahead of the competition during your job search.

Making It Happen: Three Years & Counting! A Special Anniversary Q & A with Scott & Mark

Happy Three Years, HTYCers!

Today, my good friend and one of HTYC’s biggest supporters (from DAY ONE!), Mark Sieverkropp, is here to help me shed some light on some of the questions that you have sent in over the years.

If you’ve tried to convince yourself that:
“There’s no way that I can make money doing what I’m passionate about…” or

“There’s no way that I can find my dream career…a career that exists on my own terms…” or

“There’s no way that I can build my own business on what i really want to do because I don’t have any experience…”

I'm here to tell you that it is possible. If I can do it, YOU can do it, too.

It can happen. You can make a living by doing what you’re passionate about.

If you’re not sure about what that is yet, don’t worry. You will figure it out.

The best part is that you don’t have to have it ALL figured out right away.

If you've found yourself wondering how to make it happen for you and your career, take a listen as we tackle your biggest career questions.

Bringing Authenticity into the Workplace

What do you like doing?

Does it make an appearance at your day job?

Bringing more of yourself and who you are at your core into your workplace should be mandatory.

If it is the fear of starting fresh in a whole different career or new industry that is stopping you from finding a new path where you can be authentic in your work, don't worry about that. All is not lost as you change careers, every experience counts and the skills you gain throughout your career journey will be carried with you, adding more value to your skill set.

Changing careers to align your work with who you are is not only liberating, but it will also give you better chances for long-term career success and fulfillment.

Our guest, Joanie Connell, knows exactly how it feels to be doing work that she was slowly losing interest in as her passions began to come into light.

For her, the importance of being more authentic in her work led her to leave her engineering career and go back to school to dig deeper into her passion for people. She was also able to carry her experiences in the technology and engineering field into her new business venture as a consultant.

Listen to our chat with Joanie as she shares her story of leaving her engineering career to live a more authentic life to pursue a career that fueled her passion for helping people while utilizing her strengths in leadership.

Finding Your Confidence By Getting Comfortable in the Discomfort

Discomfort: noun dis·com·fort \dis-ˈkəm-fərt\
1. Mental or physical uneasiness, 2. A feeling of being somewhat worried, unhappy, etc.

Are you comfortable with being uncomfortable?

Are you in a place in your life, whether in your career or not, that makes you feel uneasy? Maybe you're stuck in limbo wondering if you need to start transitioning out of your current career.

It's hard work to reflect during these times in our lives that make us feel stuck. Reflection and being completely honest with ourselves about where we are in our lives and where we want to be isn't an easy task. It's difficult to identify the things that are really important to us. But, we have to do it if we want to move forward.

Getting Off the Traditional Path of Success and Taking Audacious Action

Have you ever found yourself feeling guilty or unappreciative for wanting something other than the career and life that you've already worked so hard to create?

Does the doubt that lingers in your mind that maybe you're not on the right career path even though you've achieved great success in your professional life make you feel crazy or ungrateful?

Stop.

Stop right there and get it out of your mind that there is something wrong with wanting something more. There is nothing wrong with having a desire to achieve something greater than what you've accomplished so far in your career.

If you've found yourself in a place of wonder, asking how you're supposed to get started on getting out of your current career to find a new path or how you're supposed to even get started on changing your career path when you don't even know where you see your future self, then our chat with life and business coach, Caroline Greene, may be the episode for you.

The Science of Happiness: How to Find Joy and Get Back to Playing Through Positive Psychology

Are you finding yourself unsatisfied by the life path that you are on?

Do you ever feel like once you achieve a goal or you get where you want to be in your career or in a particular place in your life that all you want is more?

As we reach a level of technical success in our career, we stop learning new things and our lives become less engaging. Getting curious and staying interested in what matters to us is imperative in our lives. Keeping that sense of wonder keeps life playful and fun.

Today's guest, Michelle McQuaid, is here to teach us about her findings in the science of happiness, also referred to as positive psychology.

Her studies encourage us to look beyond our achievement-obsessed and outcome-focused society as that culture causes us to lose sight of the things that bring us joy in the every day.

Listen to our chat with Michelle as she shares her experience of reaching what she thought her career and life goals were, but then found herself wanting more from the life she created for her and her family.
