In this 12 week course, you’ll discover your unique and specific Strength’s, Talents and Abilities and how to deploy those in the area of your interest to enjoy a fulfilling and fruitful career. You may have heard it said, “Do what you Love and you’ll never work a day in your Life”, is that too much to ask, we don’t think so. If you’re not enjoying your career and doing work you find both rewarding and fulfilling, why not? For most of us, it’s because we don’t know where to turn for answers and help in navigating this journey. Henry David Thoreau (along with a few other’s) said, “70% of men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” If you identify with this statement, I assure you, you’re not alone!
Let’s face it, the reality is you’re going to spend a good 50+ years of your life on the job, working. If you worked 8 hours a day X 40 hours a week (allowing for 3 weeks of vacation per year, which many would love to have) X 50 years, that’s a whopping, 98,000 hours of your life. Easier said, you’ll spend 1/3 of your life working, so why not do something you thoroughly enjoy and excel at?
Do you have golden handcuffs (making great money, but hate your job) and can’t find a way out, like many executives? You may be mid-career and finding that you just want to accomplish more with your life than you have thus far or perhaps you’re finding that what you studied in college just doesn’t fit anymore. The truth is, it’s really tough to make intelligent career decision’s at age 18 that will still be a good fit at age 45. While school counselors do their best to help, they typically only look at one or two facets of a person’s attributes, which falls short in getting a good wholistic picture of the entire person
Let me share with you a quick statistic that’s rarely advertised: 44% of those that enroll in college never graduate. Those who do, change majors (on average) twice during the course of their college career, adding another 18 month’s and $30k to their education. Let’s apply some $ signs to make it interesting. Post graduate income, lost during those extra 18 month’s (at say conservatively $50k a year) + the $30K in additional tuition, reveals the real cost to be in the neighborhood of $105k+, not to mention the frustration and emotional expense that’s very, very real as well. This one class, could save you from having to unnecessarily take 15 - 18 classes more than you need to. Even after changing majors twice, most graduates still end up with a degree in a field they’re uncertain about and don’t altogether love. That’s definitely not the most comforting and encouraging way to one’s career life.
