It’s Labor Day!

Labor Day is one of my favorite holidays! Why? As a career coach, author, and speaker, my primary focus is helping people to identify and find work that meets their needs and fulfill their values. The sad part about Labor Day for many is that it also represents the unofficial end of Summer.

Work is such a significant aspect of most people’s existence, whether it is about earning money, creating or producing something, making an impact, or further developing or learning new skills.

When you don’t enjoy or like what you are doing work-wise, these feelings can easily cast a shadow on the rest of your life. Whether you are extremely career oriented or you simply work to receive a paycheck, it is important to want to engage in your job, your employer’s goals, and the people you work with.

Do you know what you need from work as well as what satisfies you? If not, please pick up the third edition of my book, I Don’t Know What I Want, But I Know It’s Not This: A step-by-step guide to finding gratifying work. Enjoy!
