Here is our third video about finding your WHY in career planning.
If you’re anything like me, you may find yourself questioning what you’re doing, the best way to move forward and wondering if you’re making the right decisions. Knowing my WHY is how I avoid all of that noise.
When I’m deciding on my next big project or honing in on the direction I want to take my business in, I always go back to my WHY. Then I evaluate opportunities, ideas and choices based on what brings me closer to fulfilling it.
In this weeks video, I’m talking about what to do next once you’ve discovered that sense of purpose and fulfillment, and how to handle a really big WHY.
Hint: Making your WHY smaller is NOT the answer!!
All my best,
P.S. Whenever you’re ready… here are 4 ways I can help you access your potential, find your path and achieve your purpose:

You need to start with WHY.
Finding our WHY allows us to find the path of fulfillment and clarity on your career journey.
Watch this video where I show you practical ways to find your WHY:

Think back to when you were in high school, getting ready to make big decisions about your future education and career direction. How many times were you asked “what do you want to do with your life?” or “what kind of job do you want to have?”
So many students are being asked these questions over and over again, and don’t have a clear answer. Most adults don’t know what they really want to do when they grow up either, so how can we expect our youth to?
These questions, and the crickets that follow, are super stressful for those who aren’t sure what path is right for them, or how to figure it out.
How, at such a young age, are students supposed to have any clue what they want to do with the rest of their life?
So instead of asking them “what they want to do?” we need to change the questions we’re asking. It’s time to start focusing on WHY!
In this video, I discuss the idea of starting with WHY and how it helps in...
Many of us, somewhere along the line, have turned off our own permission to dream. Our society often leads people to shut down their dreaming and visioning minds with systems and specific ways of living that hold us to society standards. These standards don’t work for everyone!
Many people I work with in the career planning process have turned off the “dreaming” switch somewhere along their path, and their career visioning becomes stifled.
I was there once too.
When that switch gets turned off we essentially stop thinking for ourselves and our bigger picture thinking becomes smaller picture thinking, which doesn’t serve our true selves.
In this video I share with you my thoughts on this topic and an exercise to help you get dreaming again, visioning your future and thinking big!
In the meantime, I’d love to know what came up for you during your dreaming and career visioning process! Feel free to leave your comments, I’d love to...
Let’s face it, career planning or considering a career path as a student can be a daunting task.
“What do you want to do?” can seem like a tricky question when there is lots of uncertainty, stress and interests happening at once.
But planning for the future and career planning doesn’t need to be another stressor – we simply need to tap into the amazing tools and resources that are already built within us to help guide our way.
Today I’ve created a video and worksheet for you with 5 steps to help students kick start their career planning. I will share some helpful exercises to help point the way to some of their wonderful gifts. Click the link below the video to access the worksheet.

Our world has changed, and so has our labour market. Jobs and careers look different now then they did for previous generations.
