Happen to Your Career
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.

Listen to our chat with Maxie McCoy as she shares how leaving her career comfort zone lead her to a much bigger and brighter future (one that she can't stop smiling about!).
