Happen to Your Career

There is something - or maybe several somethings - coming between you and your dream.

Maybe you don’t know exactly what it is right now, and that’s OK. I’ve been there. I’ve worked with hundreds of people that have been there as well. And we have been able to break our dreams down into much smaller steps, and identify what that very first baby step looks like.

But, I’m getting ahead of myself.

This episode today features an interview we had on the podcast seven years ago, and it was actually my co-host back then, Mark,  that conducted the interview. Throughout the interview, you’re going to find out how you can break down your dreams into smaller steps and get over what holds you back from reaching your dream.

So, let’s get into this interview between Mark and our guest, Richie Norton.

You’re not still rocking your high school or college hairstyle, so why restrict yourself to the job you thought you wanted way back then?

It’s time to step out of your teenage shadow and give yourself permission to seek a career outside the bounds of your college major.

“I am a former educator. So I have a background in early childhood education. And my views changed slightly after I had children and started raising them and started looking at careers and world life experiences differently.”

 

Even though most of us aren’t former educators, I’m sure most of us parents have a similar experience when we have children and begin raising them.

The above quote came from my wife, Alyssa. She joins me on the podcast this week as we talk about how to prepare children for their future careers.

 

Since we have a company that focuses on helping people with their careers, we have all the answers and are preparing our kids perfectly.

Maybe that’s a little of an exaggeration.

We don't do it perfectly. But we do have a pretty significant head start because, every single day, we get to see people many, many years later and what's worked out for them, and what hasn't worked out for them.

 

There are a lot of resources that help people prepare their kids for college, but that’s a limited approach.

We need to prepare our kids to be ready after college.

Listen to the podcast today to help you work with your kids and prepare them for their future careers.

We have done well over 300 episodes over the past 7 years. I have had a shared a lot of fantastic conversations right here on the podcast to help you create your own career happiness. One problem with having over 300 episodes, is that some episodes tend to get buried.

Today, I’d like to dig up one of those great conversations I had 7 years ago - it was actually the 3rd episode we ever released. When we originally talked she has written 1 book, but now she has written 3 more books. Her latest book is called, “The Serving Mindset: Stop Selling and Grow Your Business.” She is passionate about showing people how to define your their freedom in first their health and then their career, and she has doing this through her site ProlificLiving.com.

So here’s my conversation with Farnoosh Brock.

Robert was in a VP level role, earning great money and enjoying life and work. He was well known around his industry. He was great at what he did.  

Things were pretty good overall… Until they weren’t!

Robert got laid off. No big deal right. A great opportunity to take some time and get a way. (Thanks soft landings and severance!)

Except when it came time to go back to work: 8 months passed. Then 10, 12… 18 months passed and he’d had a few interviews but nothing had panned out.

He and his partner were pulling their hair out a bit trying to figure out what was going on. He’s a smart guy, he gets results, why wasn’t this working?

They had been through everything, was it his interview style? Simply unlucky? Was he coming off as desperate?

That’s where I had the opportunity to meet Robert. As he was trying to figure out what was working and what wasn’t.

It turns out Robert’s answer wasn’t what you’d think it would be.

The cost for staying in your job is higher than you think, and Audrey learned that the hard way.

She was a talented Operations Manager working in the Events and Hospitality industry in New York City. She’d given much of herself to the job and had been rewarded with increasing responsibility, perpetual “thank yous” …and an increasing distaste for her work because what she valued most didn’t align with what the company valued.

When she came to us for help, it became apparent that the genuine, highly caring, no-holds-barred person that she was (and wanted to be more often) was being hampered because of the job she was working in.

This inability to be herself for 70 hours a week became so frustrating for her that it sparked an 11-month long journey to figure out what she really wanted and fight off the mental barriers that were keeping her stuck!

So how did she go from teary days staying at a job she hated to getting paid $20,000 more with a career that allowed her to be who she is?

Take a listen to Audrey’s story and find out!

Many people that think their dream is impossible.

Sharissa Sebastian had been in the tech industry for years, but was wanting to make a transition out of that field.

She was eventually introduced to coaching through Groupon.

Her coach began talking with her about what her ideal situation would look like, but she was holding herself back. She didn't think that "ideal" wouldn't be realistic.

 

But Sharissa's coach asked her, "But what if it is possible?"
