Passion or Paycheck? What’s Your Second Act?

So, you've accomplished a lot in your career and are considering making a shift. You're ready for your Second Act.
Gaining clarity of passion and purpose will guide you to meaningful work and ongoing financial rewards.

So, you've accomplished a lot in your career and are considering making a shift. Where to begin? What to do?

Whether the change is due to economic or cultural changes in your company, or priorities shifting in your own life, the Second Act is real, and it matters. 

Most professionals didn't consider passions when they made career choices. As a result, we ended up following success, but now our heart craves something more, something of significance, something new.

As you consider your Second Act, you have an abundance of choices, you’ve developed your talents, honed your skills, and you are ready to Be You.

What next step is right for you:

  • What kind of work gets your heart racing? 
  • What would you enjoy doing?
  • What work would you find meaningful? 
  • How do you find your niche in the marketplace?
  • You know you must ENJOY the work to be at your best. 

Get Real and Get CLEAR

Face it – this is a BIG decision and you want to be certain before you make that leap.  

Clarity encompasses understanding your career persona, your passions, and your purpose. That thing that creates a fire within you!
